Getting back into the saddle again is something in many ways I feel is something I need to do. There was a happiness and feeling of contentment and accomplishment that comes with not only writing, but also publishing.
An author friend of mine asked me if I would consider doing the cover art for a story they will be releasing in the upcoming months. When I was asked, I was both excited and hesitant about the idea. As I agreed to do it, I now hope that I am able to come through. Unlike my writing, my drawing talents seem to come and go and I am not sure what brings it on or hinders it. Today I attempted to draw a couple of times, not one of them is anything I thought was much good. I am going to have to keep on trying out, different pictures as I feel inspired and see what becomes of it.
Although the puppy is still very much a puppy, we have been working on living together. She is allowing me to take care of various things, without needing my full attention all of the time. I have done a little writing as well as a little drawing, both things I thought I would not be able to attempt for at least another six months. Now I just need to pull my head out of the clouds and get to it. I am learning to compromise, this being I am stopping doing anything and giving her attention throughout the evening. She is insisting on us walking each day, which is doing wonders for my own health. Much to my delight I had to order a belt punch because the belts I bought a couple of months ago are now too big on me.
Taking another geek moment, I have to talk about my Samsung Galaxy Note II phone that arrived last week. For the first time ever, I own a phone that I absolutely love! Much to my liking, I am able to write anywhere and anytime that I want. I can even talk and have it typed up and most of the time it types what I said, though it does have its share of bugs. I am glad when I have an idea and be able to take it down, whether I am saying it, writing it, or typing it. Plus with the screen being bigger and an Android phone, I can read my Kindle books, highlight and make notes that transfer automatically to my Kindle. I am pleased to have such a great phone.
In the coming weeks, keep checking back for my guest bloggers. I know I am looking forward to what they are going to share.
