What’s my favorite Seasons? Let me show ya #MFRWauthor #amwriting

It’s week 38 of the MRW 52 week blog challenge.  I think this week is one of my favorite topics. Seasons.  What is the Best Part of Each Season? Come let me show you!

I will start with fall since it’s right here and one of my very favorites.  I love the changing leaves, colors, pumpkins, scarecrows, decorations, sunflowers just to name a few things.

Did I mention all the awesome pumpkin flavors…pumpkin coffee, pie, truffles? Let’s not forget Apples…Apple crisp, Pie, apple dumplings and pecan is a big fall flavor too. Oh, I almost forgot sweet potatoes. MMMM

Fall also brings one of my favorite holidays

HALLOWEEN

I like winter too. Yes, I am one of the weird ones. I like cool weather. I like snow. ( i didn’t say I loved being out in it.) I like Christmas and all the lights and decorations. My Birthday is in winter.

 

I like Spring too. I like to see the flowers emerging, here the birds chirping see the squirrels frolicking and all the new life being born. The allergies I could live without. So I spent much of my spring looking out.

 

Summer, I really have to think about that. It is my least favorite month. It is too hot so I can’t get out much with my asthma. I guess I can say I like the fresh garden food, fruits, and veggies. I like to go on trips when we can afford to and this past summer I did enjoy the water park with my brother and his family.

 

I do like the fourth of July and Memorial Day cookouts.

these are the things I like best about the seasons. What are your favorites? let’s go see what the other bloggers like best!

Winning my heart is easy! #MFRWauthor #blogchallenge #amwriting

 

First of all, I want to send well wishes, hopes and prayers to all that were affected by the hurricanes and wildfires. I hope you are all safe and damage is to a minimum. I missed you all last week since my computer crapped out on me. Luckily I have a techy son and he saved everything.  I don’t really have any advice on time-saving, as I am just a kitty that chases anything shiny! I did learn a few focus tricks.. Now to put them to use!

This is week 37 of the 52-week MFRW blog challenge. This weeks topic is Five Ways to Win My Heart. This is in no particular order.

Flowers. Not from a shop but potted plants, bags of bulbs potted rose bushes. These keep on giving year after year and not only a few days. I can always clip a few to bring inside.

Doing things without being asked. My daughter is spoiling me while she is here. she sweeps, unloads the dishwasher and keeps the laundry caught up daily. My Daughter in law also spoils me by helping me weed, driving me to the store and Dr and helping cook a few times a week.

Books. Last year I had an author send me her entire series I had helped promote, beta read and reviewed. I was surprised when that box arrived totally unexpected.  I have authors send me free books quite often, and the other day one sent me two audio codes to use for any book I wanted. I would have gotten one of hers but I had them all. so I let her recommend me some.

Charm and a kind smile.  bay’s giggles, cute kitties and There s nothing like a nice smile, and someone doing something kind like opening doors, passing on favors any act of kindness. I’m a goner! I guess that’s why I love cowboy books so much.

and of course CHOCOLATE!

Now let’s go see what wins the other author’s hearts.

How many can I list? #mybadhabits #MFRWauthor #amwriting

It is time again for the 52-weekMFRWblogchallenge. It is week 35 and the topic is My Bad Habits.

At least this week it is easy. I have tons of bad habits.

 

Number one is nail biting. I have tried to stop but to no avail. I actually don’t bite my nails but the dried cuticles underneath so I always have sore looking and. I’ll never be a hand model.

#2. I constantly going around shutting doors and drawers. If something sticks out I have fixed it.

#3 I set expectations and goals so high no human can meet them. When I worked I was a manager and my to do lists for each shift were always long. It looked like a lot but would write things exactly. Most of them were small chores and I would rather they stay busy.

I believe this is why I never finish a story. I set my to do list so high that I work on it and never get to the writing part or am too tired when I do. I have whittled down a lot of my workload so that it is more attainable and to put the writing first. I will see how this happens.

I am a list maker. I have lists for everything. Cleaning, decluttering, crafts to do, crochet projects to do, gardening, menus, grocery lists, to do for writing, to do for home, schedules, I even have a list of my lists.

biting nails, not finishing what I start, too long of a list (see what I mean, setting expectations no human can meet personal and at work

I mean well…

That brings me to my writing. I have lists of stories that are finished drafts, some even completed, some that have been submitted rejected and I need to redo, lots of unfinished stories, lots of ideas for stories.

I have a bad habit of starting something then getting overwhelmed and stopping.

I may be staying on track working on a story when a new idea strikes. what can I do but stop and write it down, work out the characters. If not I will forget it.

I also have the bad habit of falling into the internet trap especially Pinterest. I can waste a full day there. I’ll pin recipes for hours and maybe use one on occasion.

Do you have any bad habits? Let’s go see what the others bad habits are?

Doors #MFRWauthor #opendoors/closeddoors #blogchallenge

Hi and, welcome back to the MFRW52week blog challenge. This weeks topic is opened doors or closed doors. I sat here scratching my head for a long time. What the heck does this mean?  I am stumped.

 

Does it mean do you prefer open or shut doors in your home? I like the shut. I have am a bit OCD and I go nuts if someone leaves a cabinet door open or a door half-open. Now the entry door is another story. When it is nice outside I open mine since it is in the office so I can see out and it lightens my office. Molly and the cats fight over the pillow in front of it to look out too.

Career wise I have had a few doors slammed in my face. I submitted two stories to two different publishers and was rejected. As I have learned more I see my mistakes and why the stories were rejected. One of them even sent me a letter and told me of the mistakes and to fix them and resubmit she would review and give me a second chance. I never did. I just put the story in an unfinished pile and I may work on it at another time. The other was for an anthology and they only chose so many. Both of these publishers have closed their doors so it was a blessing in disguise. I still have the rights to them and didn’t have to fight for them back.

I am considering self-publishing with my current story so that is an open door as I don’t have to worry about a publisher rejecting me.  I still may submit someday and face the doors again.

Do you face doors opening and closing?

In Ten Years >> #MFRWauthor #blogchallenge #amwriting

Hi Yall. Welcome back to the MFRW52 week blog challenge. We are on week 32 and our topic is  In Ten Years. I am wondering if this means what the world will be like in ten years or what my goal is for Ten years.  I am hoping that the apocalypse isn’t near and our world destroyed because that is scary but things aren’t looking so great. I am not getting into politics so I will skip on to if things don’t get destroyed and life is like it is what my goal is.

In ten years i will be the next Nicholas Sparks and every romance reader will own my books and be begging for more. All of my books will be HallMark Movies and grown ups will laugh and cry.  Oh, that’s a dream but hey it’s a good one!

I know my post is short but I just got home from nearly two months at my dad’s, I have to clean house and get a room ready for my daughter who will be moving in next Tuesday so I am swamped with things to do.

What are your dreams and goals for Ten years? let’s go see what the other bloggers have to say about this.
