Misbehaving Machines

I think I've already said how I was doing Camp Nanowrimo. Reworking a previous WIP that needed some help. I was writing along, updating my word count like a good girl, when I decided I needed to get off the laptop and switch to my desktop... Things were going great until I took a short break to update my word count again. I was short like 1,000 words! Apparently different word processor programs have different methods of calculating things like word counts, and it pretty much screwed my stuff up. :( So anyhow, I diligently began writing again, because let's face it that's what I do lol, and tada! Today I have made up the difference in word counts and come up ahead. (That's right...Go Sally...) I decided maybe it would be better to stick to just one or the other, and since I have Word (to go) on a flash drive I guess I'll be using that if I decide to switch back to my laptop. The first thing I need to do payday is buy Office...

Thought for the day: When making the decision to purchase a new computer, don't just assume it comes with Microsoft Office. Learned that one the hard way.

Hope everyone has a great day and Happy Reading Folks!

I'm bored, so here's an excerpt from Book 2! YAY *throws confetti*

K I'm kinda bored...so here's my favorite part (so far) on Dragon Portal 2 (still have to name it too lol) Keep in mind it's a first draft (hasn't been edited at all) so be gentle. :D

 ~Conversation between Layla and Amaya. Picks right up after DP 1 ends.~

    “What do you want me to say Layla, that I’m fine – better yet, that everything’s fine and it’s all sunshine and rainbows? Cause it’s not.” She sighed again. “Things may never be fine again, ok. I don’t know. As for that crazy bitch, I know exactly what will happen to her.” The words and the slightly deranged expression on Amaya’s face sent a cold chill down Layla’s spine where it settled in the pit of her stomach.
     “You know it won’t bring him back, right?” Layla’s voice was quite a bit softer this time. “It’ll only tear you apart, and besides we have a world to save, don’t we?” She tried to make a joke, which only made Amaya’s dour mood worse.
            “Let’s just go. Everyone else is waiting for us.” Amaya said without feeling. “And stop trying to fix me. I’m not broken, and you know the old saying ‘if it’s not broken you don’t fix it.’” But I am broken.

Hope you enjoyed. Still working on this one...sorry lol. Maybe I really am the queen of tease? OK, back to work!

It's ALIVE! ...I mean it's live now!

I solemnly swear I'm up to no good...no wait that's Harry Potter...whatever

I know I haven't been updating here like I should. I swear it's for a good cause tho!!! I've been working on getting The Dragon's Portal ready for upload! All in the same week I got the cover back, the edits back, fixed those, formatted it and did the final read thru. Now I am in the process of uploading to Smashwords and Amazon, so cross your fingers and say a little prayer for that process to speed itself along. :D I'll probably post here and on my FB page when it actually goes live, so keep your eyes peeled! Much love and Happy Reading y'all!
