Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve ended up taking a bit of a break from writing and drawing. For quite some time I have wanted to get back into reading. When I upgraded my Kindle Fire to a Kindle Fire HD 8.9” I made myself a promise I was going to do some more reading. This has been a promise I have kept. I have been reading through my pile of books, most of which I had been planning on reading for over a year with a few other’s here and there I have found interesting.
What I love best about my new Kindle is it does something I have wished for as long as I can remember. There are times when I am reading a book and want to listen to it while driving in my car. Now I can had the Kindle read it to me when I am unable to read myself. It is an option that I am glad I have. I used to get the audio book of something I was reading, but it would take me forever to find where I was at either listening or reading and it would be annoying. Or I would start listening to a book and read a different one, and then I would mix up the storylines.
The new book is still in the editing process. When I get it back, I plan to add in some stuff that I meant to include when I was writing, along with going through to see what changes have been made. As far as the cover art, I have an idea in my head what I want it to be like, but I have been lacking the motivation to work on it. Drawing is something that comes and goes with me. Usually I get the cover rolling while the editing is being done. This book, has been so different, being it is still without a title and perhaps will be done being edited by the time I start on the cover.
I hurt my foot this past weekend, so much to the puppy and my disappointment we have not been walking. I am looking forward to not having to keep my foot elevated and be able to get out and walk with her. She has been so good, sticking by me as I have been pretty much stuck in bed over the last couple of days. She is such a smart, sweet little girl. I have been glad that the black interior, mainly the leather seats have not been damaged being I have been taking her just about everywhere I go.
Then there is my new addiction, something I am not sure if I should be putting out there just yet. My brother introduced me to Game of Thrones. I watched the first season twice while being stuck in bed. He brought me the second season last night, which I stayed up until I could not keep my eyes open watching. I keep getting told I need to read the books, to which I plan on doing, but not anytime soon. I need to taper off my reading and get back to being an author!
Speaking of which I have been outlining my new work in progress, a book I had an idea a couple years ago and never ended up writing. For years, I have been adding ideas to the file with it, planning on writing the book someday. When I told my editor about it, she practically begged me to write it next. I told her that I would look through my notes and see. It looks like I will finally be writing this book.
