I was absent last week because it's festival time and I love a festival. I find them relaxing, creatively inspiring and of course, expensive as I always get carried away with food, drink and buying things I don't actually need but want.

Last weekend it was the Paw Paw Festival with a lot of good music, beer, food and crafts. I got over a dozen pages handwritten while listening to the music. This weekend was a steampunk trainride and the Mothman Festival. It was helpful in that I got to turn my Weird West story over in my head and came up with one character being Navajo and that Tecumesh was never assassinated so there is a completely different dynamic between the European Settlers and the Native Americans. The other character is a Jewish doctor post Civil war.

Simmer is finally moving along but it's going to run right into the the deadline and it also is getting long. Too long. I'm still happy with it so no matter what something will come of this.

I plan to do a story for [livejournal.com profile] spook_me for Halloween this year using dark faeries but that's all I know at this time.

I'm still slowly moving forward with Blood Red Roulette and thinking on a sequel to Soldiers of the Sun for Nano.

And we're in the last few days of my Goodreads giveaway for Soldiers of the Sun so if you want to take a chance on winning it here you go.

I'm hungry. Fix me something.

Yay for festivals! I'm glad you're having a good time and writing at some of them at least.

You seem to be having some fun weekends there with all those festivals! :D

I have to sit down & finish reading what you've sent me on you Vegas Vamps. XD

I put in for the giveaway. I would have gotten the actual book instead of the ebook, if I had more money at the time when I ordered it. XD I like the feel of a book in my hands. XD So wish me luck! :D

Fun is still good! :D

I read what you had of simmer before I went away. Geek 1 & Geek 2 you were thinking of getting together for a walk, but I have no idea if they did or not, so I guess if you have more to it, send it. :D

Thanks! yeah! I hope I can win it! :D

yes there's that but since this is for an anthology there IS a word limit

Aaah... yes, the word count. XD Since I no longer write for anything but myself ^ the odd drabble for SPN Big Pretzel, I've forgotten about those. XD
