blows off the dust

It’s been a while since I was last here.  Sorry everyone!  Lots of stuff going on.  I went on a cruise vacation the last week in October.  I had never been to Florida before, so I thought it was kinda neat sailing out of Miami.

Remember this, if you choose to go on a cruise the last week in October prepare for the Halloween costume party.  It gets crazy, then again it might have been like that because the cruise line I chose was Carnival.Superman!

 

I digress, though the pictures do look fun, don’t they?

The other thing I’m having to deal with now is that I’m having to pack and move again.  Since I’ve been out on my own I’ve been living in apartments.  I’m also paying off my student loans.  I have about three years left to go before that’s finished (I thought it was two, but I miscalculated).  Think of it, I haven’t missed a single payment.  Once it’s paid off, along with my car at about the same time it’ll be like having an extra week’s pay (won’t that be nice?)  Anywho, I gotta move again because the complex I moved to last year is hiking my rent majorly.

I do have a new place, but nothing’s official yet.  It’ll be good once I get it and then move into the apartment.  Because of me packing and such the muses have quieted down a bit.  Though recently they started knocking on the door once again.  I’m about half finished with my story (if 50K words is half), which means I’ll be on the downhill slope for the rest of the plot.

How are y’all doing on your stories?  Let me know!

beginnings…

My first posting.  Yay!!

 

Nothing happening with me so far.  Still working on my story, and will be for a while.  I did get my business cards.  They look really, really nice.

 

Right now the story I’m working on is a historical fiction based in the regency period.  I’ve got four chapters done and am trying to work on the next one.  You know, writing a funeral is hard.  At least I have a good copy of the Book of Common Prayer.

*sigh* the things we do for research.

I’d really love to go to Williamsburg to check out Bruton Parish Church.  Williamsburg is the only “village” we have in the States that’s from the regency era.

 

Stay tuned!
