Rewriting the Past!

Did something to my back so the gym is out for a few days. No worries, I am swimming still. I should not put any fat on, even if I don’t take any off. Today is laundry day anyway and that takes forever….OMG just dry towels!!!! But my business still got some attention even though sitting at the computer screen is not helping the twinge. The things we do for the love of it.

Anyway, I wrote this vampire novel in the way, way back. It’s called, ‘The Red Mirror.’ Apparently a few of my friends loved the story, I loved the story. I reread the story and said, “Wow, this is a little 80’s.” But I still liked the plot. I’ve been updating and rewriting it ever since. The original was a whopping 21 pages long in ALL CAPS FOR SOME REASON UNFATHOMABLE TO ME. Currently I have 26 pages and 8 of the original draft to get typed into the PC. By the time I’m done it might be novella length. After the initial rewrite, I am going to get it up to 50,000 words if it kills me. Then I am going to shop this old ass story around because tween-teenager me was pretty damned creative. I could learn from her.

On the illustration front:

I completed my first http://www.Fiverr.com project and got 5 Stars (was there ever a doubt?) I also got a nibble on a second one. I will let you know when I am queen of my Fiverr Empire. 

My #twoodle (search it pals!) this week was so cute (a platypus flying with balloons) that it inspired me to create another kids’ picture book. This one will be poetry. I may need help with the poetry as that’s one of those gray areas where I think I am awesome until someone reads it out loud. Ha!

My portfolio on http://www.1fuzzymonster.com is updated and the domain is working again! Yay!

 

On the Guinea Pig front:

We were afraid Winter had an Upper Respiratory Infection because he was wheezing more than ever. But he had no discharge (boogers/eye boogers) and was eating like a fiend (that’s his normal eating style BTW.) So I thought it might be allergies or heart failure since he is an older piglet. We swapped the bedding and the wheezing is back to normal. I have also ordered him heart support guinea pig food just in case. He is my buddy. I got to take good care of him.

The babies are all adopted out except for Johnny Bananas and his brother Jumper Jones. They’re 17 days old. They need to be 21 before they go in with the dudes (boars.) I am watching them like a hawk. If they start any older pig behavior they go to Dale to get older dude pig training before adoption. That should be the end of the accidental breeding unless one of these gals is a hermaphrodite. 

 

Rededicating Myself to the Home Business and Some Other Good Stuff Too.

I’m sitting in front of my computer drinking a new meal replacement drink my BF is getting into marketing. It tastes like melted chocolate ice cream and is only very slightly too thick. And that is my fault since I used 1% milk instead of the skim or water it recommends. So yep, I will be full for awhile. This is great news since my dad bought me Spicy Nacho Doritos and I want to eat the whole bag in one sitting then regret it for the rest of the day, only to go out tomorrow hunting for more delicious salty snacks. Mmm melted chocolate is good enough to distract me though.

My http://www.1fuzzymonster.com link has been down for 3 weeks. Some server insanity kicked it off and my tech pal got the dns settings working today. I uploaded stuff and I am still waiting for it to appear. I am tech savvy but I am no programmer so I could have done any number of things wrong. But it is a good sign that I may have a quicker link to my business back up and running. Not that I ever stopped. I even have 9 pieces in the Metropolitan Bakery in University City, 4013 Walnut Street, Phila, PA. Check it out! I just want to get going on the money making part of my endeavors.

Last night I made a ton of lists. I did some research. Now all I need to do is start.

So this is me starting. (Plus I’m also starting a fitness plan…)
