A Christmas Survey

 
 
I found this little survey (via Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf, via Lindsay's Library)
and since it's still (technically) Christmas week, I thought, what the hell? People are still pretending Christmas! I apologize for starting with the first two answers; if this was my list, they wouldn't be on here. Just skip to the happier #3 question, if you like.


Favorite Christmas song(s): Honestly? None. Well, that's not exactly true. I can tolerate (note the word tolerate) the classical songs ("Gloria in excelsis Deo", and stuff like that), but not much else. Generally, I'd rather not listen to "Christmas" themed music...by anyone, anywhere, ever! Especially this pissy year, Holly Jolly nonsensical songs just depressed the hell out of me. Ugh. (To hell with you, 2016!)

Favorite Christmas movie(s): Again, not much. Bad Santa comes to mind and there was one Hallmark romance movie (yes, it's true) from ...a few years back, that I enjoyed, but I can't for the life of me tell you the title. I think, after a quick scan through Google, that it was called Christmas with Holly. I wouldn't say either one is my "favorite" but I can watch them. Unless we add Star Wars, since it generally releases in December. Then yes. That. Star Wars. :)


Best and/or most memorable Christmas gift you ever received: My mom found an old pic of my family and framed that. Also, my first word processor,without which...you know I wouldn't have so many books published.

Real tree or artificial tree?: Artificial. I like real, but because of my husband, Allergy Boy, artificial is best.

What tops your tree? Star? Angel? Bow?: An angel that looks like it was made out of stained glass.


Do you send out Christmas cards? Do you go photo card or traditional?:Yes, I do still send them out. And I go traditional.


When did you stop believing in Santa?: I don't remember 2nd? 3rd? Fourth grade?

Do you have any special Christmastime traditions?: I don't turn the Christmas lights on until Solstice.

Do you have a favorite type of decoration -- snowmen, trees, Christmas village, etc.?: My Christmas tree. I tried to do a more Victorian look, except for the lights, of course.

Do you have any sentimental decorations or ornaments?: That angel I mentioned. I inherited it from a friend of ours who passed away quite a while ago.

White lights or colored lights? Big old-fashioned lights or mini lights?: Colored mini-lights.

When do you start decorating for Christmas?: I try to put the tree up within the first weekend or maybe second week of December; any earlier than the that is too early. But like I said, I don't turn the lights on, officially, until Solstice night.
 
Favorite Christmas treat: Peppermint coffee creamer. :)

Do you like sugar cookies? Gingerbread cookies?: Yes.

Do you say cocoa or hot chocolate? Do you like your warm chocolate-y beverage with marshmallows? I say Hot Chocolate and sometimes, I like marshmallows. I have to be in the mood, I guess.

What do you eat at your Christmas feast?: We usually do ham of some sort, and black beans and rice, too. But most importantly, I look forward to mom's lasagna. :) The Italian side of me needs it! ;) She usually makes it special for me to bring home.

Do you open any presents on Christmas Eve or do you wait until Christmas morning?: We wait until Christmas morning.

Favorite Christmas-y scent:? Baking cookies.
 
If you could ask Santa for any gift this year -- and know that he'd bring it -- what would it be?: Mechanical fingers like Ghost in the Shell so I could type more without the fingers dying. ;) 
 
Guess what? I didn't get them. *sigh* Oh well. Gotta do this the old fashioned way. ;) Anyway, those are my answers to the survey. Hope those first two answers didn't depress you. Have a good day and New Year!

Christmas Sunday Update

Sunday Post by Kimba Caffeinated banner
Sunday Post was conceived by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

This week's been busy, and a tough one. My hubby had the week off so I didn't get much done in the Vlogmas challenge (poor planning on my part, there) but oh well. It's nice having him home. We finished up our Christmas shopping, went out to the park several times, watched a few movies. Might seem boring but that's a good weekend, to us. :) We'd talked about going to see Rogue One again (which we lovedlovedloved!) but alas, it didn't happen. I imagine, when it comes out on DVD, it'll live in our player for quite a while. (yes, if you haven't seen it, it's sssssooooo goood!).

Also baked up the banana bread everyone seems to love around here.

Books I got this week:

The Most Unsuitable Wife by Caroline Clemmons.
A Question of Faith by Nicole Zoltac
Betrayal's Price by Lisa Blackwood
Let it Snow by Erica Ridley
Dissension by K.A. Salidas
 Shadow Stalker part 1 by Renee Scattergood

What I read this week:

Finished Kickin' and Dreaming, A story of Heart, Soul and Rock n Roll (aka the Heart biography) by Ann and Nancy Wilson. And if you are a Heart fan and haven't read this book yet, you should! I really enjoyed it. If you aren't a heart fan, oh my! You should check them out. Dreamboat Annie-Bebe Le Strange is a good place to start. ;) Red Velvet Car, Jupiter's Darlin' and Fanatic are great too. Heck, I like almost all of their Discography! :)
Also finished up Laura Strickland's The Tenth Suitor.



I think that was it.I noticed that this year, I didn't quite read as much as last year. So, I hope to do a little more next year! *g* We'll see.

This week's posts:
Vlogmas Attempts
A bit of Flash Fiction for your Christmas reading pleasure
Just a quick note to say...

Since I figure y'all won't be around much to read this update, I'll stop now. I hope y'all have a lovely holiday!

Vlogmas attempts

If y'all are ever on Youtube, I've been participating in the Vlogmas challenge. Or at least, trying to. The challenge is to post vlogs every day in December, preferably, I think, Christmas related. Well...what I'm ending up doing is snippets of days in the life of a writer.

The videos take longer to make than you'd think, and somehow in there I haven't had a chance to make more since Saturday. Hubby's been home on a long weekend and that makes it hard to record videos. I admit it, I'm not one of those who can shoot a video in one room while someone's in the other. On the topic of writing/editing I can't do "read aloud" edits when someone's here, either. I don't know, but it feels like I'm either (a) talking to myself or (b) being rude.  (And no, in case you're wondering, I don't feel the same way about knitting or writing when he's home. For the most part).

But I do have a few videos up, and will add to them when I can. Hopefully before the end of December, but I'm not holding my breath. If you're curious about, like I said, a day (or rather, days) in the writer's life, you can find them here

Creeping up on Christmas

Sunday Update meme by KimbaCaffeinate
Sunday Post was conceived by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.


 Another week upon us. I thought about doing this post as yet another Vlog, but just didn't get the chance. I like doing them, considered Vlogmas. But shooting and editing my vlogs do tend to take a lot more time than simply typing my thoughts up.  I did make a book trailer for Lady of the Tarot, that I'm pretty pleased with but  no. No vlog this past week. I went to the dentist and they had a cute tree up. *smacks forehead* I know I could've filmed it. All I kept thinking was that the pine smell was too strong and driving me nuts. How how it didn't bother my husband, who's usually more sensitive than I, I have no idea. Now, don't get me wrong, I love pine trees, have lived among them at some points in my life, but this for some reason, was just too concentrate. Oh, well.

As I look back over last week, I'm pretty pleased with everything I managed to get done. The carpal tunnel calmed way down (thank the gods!) so I worked on rewriting the end of a work in progress. I think it's better for it. I hope. We'll see what my beta readers think.

I also managed  to finish up that shawl I was working on. :) I even got to wear it this weekend, and it worked nicely, (in the cold grocery store!). I think it might work out nicely when that one cold day hits. *fingers crossed* We also got the Christmas tree up, and the last of the Christmas shopping done. So, phew! One less thing to worry about. The Christmas cards are coming along but...that's a different subject. And I have a Christmas present I'm working on that must be finished this week. *shhhh*)

On the reading front, no, I didn't manage to get up the review of City in the Autumn Stars, however, I did finish it a few days ago. I enjoyed it very much, but must admit, it didn't end the way I thought it would. I hope to get a review up on my review blog this week. Also, I'm almost finished with  The Tenth Suitor by Laura Strickland so be on the look out for that. Next on my reading list will be The Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander. I have an omnibus of that on my shelf and I've been eyeing it. So, at least, I plan to start the first book. I recently discovered this fantasy series is based on the Mabinogion (how did this book escape my notice all these years??? Pagan fiction, ya!!!! :)) so I've been itching to read it. (I hear tell Disney is trying (again) to make movies of it--this time the whole series. With how horribly they failed with Black Cauldron, I suppose all we can do is hope for the best?)

 
What with Christmas creeping ever closer (already??) we'll see how far I get through any of my reading/writing/blogging projects.

This week's blogs (if you missed them). Just two:
My post for the Indie Advent Calendar 
and last Sunday's post.

And a picture from last week (which you might've seen if you follow my Instagram account):

palm fronds by and copyright to Juli D. Revezzo, December 2016

These were lying out in the park. I like the look of palm fronds when they're all laid out like this. (hate having to clean them up out of my yard, though). But sometimes, they remind me of old brooms. Anyway, that's me, this week. How was your week?

Indie Advent Calendar and deleted scene from Lady of the Tarot


Christmas keyboard
As part of the Indie Advent Calendar I thought I'd show off a deleted Christmas scene from Lady of the Tarot. I hope you enjoy it. I'm not going to say that this isn't...possibly spoiler-y because, heads up, it came in the original quite late in the story and after a couple of big revelations in Reign of Tarot universe so. So, just a heads up, this outtake might seem to give a bit away.


Deleted scene from Lady of the Tarot:


The savory scents of beef broth filled the air, the makings for the Christmas pudding. Beneath it, the syrupy fragrance of mincemeat pies. Emilie ignored her growling stomach, in favor of the doorbell. Carolers, perhaps? Maybe her uncle had come, not saying a word beforehand to keep from ruining a Christmas surprise for her aunt.
A hint of cold seeped into the room as the maid answered the caller. Her skin still damp from the mist of her morning bath, Emilie shivered and moved closer to the fire. The warm glow eased her discomfort.
The maid soon entered the parlor, carrying a small box, wrapped in brightly colored paper and bows. “For you, Mademoiselle Emilie.”
Emilie rose and took the package from her. She opened the card.

Emilie,
Merry Christmas. I’m sorry I haven’t called on you lately. The business of my
uncle’s is taking far longer to sort out than I thought. I miss your fine laughter
and the beauty you bring to
Nightingale’s Reste.

“Emilie, you’re blushing,” Grand-mère said interrupting her in the middle of Linton’s flattery.

Emilie cleared her throat and turned back to the message.

Do forgive me and accept my gift. I found this bracelet in my uncle’s
belongings. I think it belonged to my grandmother
.

Was this why Linton had come to visit her, the first week of December? Now that she thought back on it, perhaps, when he took her wrist in his hands, he'd been measuring it for fit. She turned the note over.

As to that other question, have you found anything? I’m still looking.
Linton.


The question he’d come so late at night to ask. She hadn’t found an answer to the who behind what he said his uncle—and her father—had done in the war, nor who they’d offended. If there was a who, she hoped Linton found out by now, but his note proved otherwise. Thinking of the story gave her chills. As it did to think of her lost brother. Would they never solve these mysteries?
“Well, what do you have there?” Grand-mère asked.
Shuddering, Emilie pushed Linton’s statement aside. For the moment. Opening the small, festive package, she gasped.
“Emilie, don’t keep me in suspense,” Grand-mère said as she came to her side.
She pulled a delicate silver bracelet forth. “It’s from Linton,” she said, clasping it around her wrist. “For Christmas and for neglecting me, I think.”
“Gorgeous,” Grand-mère said. “But should you accept it?”
Her fingers paused and the bracelet slid down her wrist. “Why shouldn’t I?”
The doorbell rang.
“Oh!” Grand-mère cried. “Who’s come now?”
The maid appeared on the parlor threshold. “Captain Bartram, ma’am. I’ll tell him to come back.”
“Oh, look at the hour!”
“I’m not ready,” Emilie said. She brushed her fingers over her hair, still tied up with strips of cloth to enhance her curls. Linton’s card and gift made her feel silly for dreading to emerge. Now, her guest reminded her of the reason for her reluctance. Just thinking of him out there reminded her of her nightmares, the touch of a million spider legs tickling up her arm--real? Or imagined? Remembered from a dream?
“No!” Grand-mère said and tugged Emilie up. “Show him in and give him tea. We’ll be right with him.”
She ushered Emilie up the back stairs to her room and whipped open her wardrobe, extracting her fetching red velvet dress.
“Can’t we send him away?” Emilie asked.
“You don’t want to see him?” Grand-mère asked.
Emilie removed her nightdress and the maid wiggled the red gown over Emilie’s head.
No. “Tell him to come back at a better hour.”
The maid buttoned the last button then picked up a hairbrush. “Ouch!” Emilie said as she tugged it through her tangles.
“Begging your pardon, ma’am.”
“Emilie!” Sinjon’s deep voice boomed up the steps. “You’ve a visitor.”
Why did he seem annoyed? She was the one annoyed. “I know!”
Grand-mère opened the door and shouted, “Don’t scream, children! It isn’t polite.”
“Well, he’s here,” he said.
A pang of guilt stabbed Emilie; she need not take her nerves out on Sinjon. She longed to creep to the kitchen, or the attic, and hide there for good. No such luck.
“Entertain him,” Grand-mère told her brother. “We’ll be right down.”
“You go, Grand-mère,” Emilie said. “I’m not presentable.”
Grand-mère looked her up and down. “Nonsense. You look fine.” She plucked up an ivory silk sash and tied it around her waist. Her soft touch urged Emilie to the door. “Come, let’s not keep him waiting any longer.”
Emilie snatched Linton’s bracelet from her vanity, slid it on, then followed after her grandmother.
Nicholas waited downstairs. Emilie deflated. Go away, go home! she prayed. Shoo!
But he remained, smiling up at her. “My dear girl,” he said. “Don’t you look delightful? Marcus.” He turned to the man behind him, carrying a stack of wrapped gifts. “These are for you.”
Grand-mère tittered in delight. Emilie pushed the bracelet underneath her sleeve and stepped forward, opening the top box. A dress of white silk, striped with black hid beneath its covering. “It’s lovely!” she said.
“Should you like to wear it to church,” he said, “I’ll wait while you change clothes.”
“No,” she said, sliding the box top back in place and handing it to their maid. “We’re late. I’ll wear it for you for new year’s eve.”
“Or when we present you to the king.”
Shock trundled through her. “The king?”
“Why shouldn’t you make his acquaintance?” Nicholas asked.
“Yes, but… I ...” She’d already been presented to Queen Marie. “I don’t think it’s necessary.”
“Of course it is.” Nicholas took and kissed her wrist. “As you are to be my wife.”
If she presented herself to the king, her chance to break off her engagement would be lost.
Emilie tugged at her collar and wondered if it were possible for a noose to feel soft as linen.

If you'd like to check out the rest of LADY OF THE TAROT, it's available at Amazon for Kindle, the audiobook can be found at Audible and Itunes, and it's also available in paperback.

The synopsis is as follows:

Lady of the Tarot by Juli D. Revezzo, Gothic romance, historical romance, tarot,  French Revolution,18th century Europe, Reign of Terror, fantasy romance


WHAT THE CARDS FORETELL MAY BE REAL, AFTER ALL

1793: Having escaped the Reign of Terror, Emilie Maigny took refuge in England, trying to come to grips with the life and loss she left behind. When her brother, Sinjon, returns, a terrifying evil swoops down upon her. Nightmares plague her now, providing strange clues ... but to what?

Scottish-born Linton Morrison spent his entire life in luxury, whiling away the hours in intense study of the tarot and the cards' hidden meanings, but until he met the lovely Emilie Maigny, he would never have guessed how important his study might be--to his life and Emilie's survival when terrible evil strikes.

A Cypher is all Emilie needs, but what is it? Is Linton the key? He may charm her heart--and he may be her only salvation.



New book trailer:

As I said above, LADY OF THE TAROT, is available at Amazon for Kindle; the audiobook can be found at Audible and Itunes, and it's also available in paperback.

Thanks for reading. I hope y'all have a merry Christmas, happy holidays!
Juli

What blogging gets done with carpal tunnel

Sunday Update banner by KimbaCaffeinate
Sunday Post was conceived by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

So this week, again, there wasn't much to report. I worked a little more on my Nanowrimo book and a few other writing projects. I did, however, accomplish one thing: Last night, I finished up the shawl/poncho I was working on. It's not quite ready to show off the finished product. I hope to be putting the final touches on it this week--before it gets chilly enough to wear!  We did manage to sort of start the Christmas shopping. Santa's bringing me something I can't wait to get my hands on! *rubs hands gleefully*

That's really all the news there was this week. 

Reading:
I'm almost finished up with City in the Autumn Stars so I hope to have a review up for that this week. I've also been reading The Tenth Suitor by Laura Strickland. It's an historical Christmas Romance and so far, I'm enjoying it. :) It's relatively short, so if I get a chance I hope to have that finished up before Christmas--at least, I'll put up a blurb.

I didn't get much at all in the way of books, this week, just  Wicked Intentions (Maiden Lane Book 1)by Elizabeth Hoyt (Free on Amazon). I read her book To Desire a Devil a few years back and enjoyed it so I thought I'd try another.

On the blog.
I didn't post too much this week, as y'all know, I had a bout of Carpal tunnel to nurse. Feh. I'm eyeing Dragon but don't know when I'll take the plunge to purchase it. It seems like it's got a heck of a learning curve.

Anyway, what I did manage to post this week is as follows:
Black Friday and writing weekend (okay, I'm fudging here, as to the length of the week)
and Post Nanowrimo 2016 update.

I hope y'all like the video. :) I have another to get up, I just haven't had a chance.
Did y'all have a good week? What'd you manage to get done?

Post nanwrimo 2016 update


So Nanowrimo, done, over for another year. How'd y'all make out? I myself hit the golden spot several days ago, clocked in at 53,702 words by their count. 
 
 


53,702 / 50000 words. 100+% done (sort of!)

So, with the hand feeling the carpal tunnel backlash a little bit, I thought I'd do a vlog instead. Yep. The lighting wasn't as good as I thought it was when I was yaking in that room, (I think it's the camera not picking enough up), but it's getting darker sooner so filming outside is becoming less and less easy. I hope it fits for this blog and I'll keep working on finding better lighting situations. Until then, though, Enjoy!


Likes and subscribes to ye old youtube channel are welcome, if you'd like to. :) Thanks for watching/reading.

Happy Black Friday/writing weekend. #smallbizsat #ShopSmall #smallbusinesssaturday #BloggersBlast


Gratitude is the sign of noble souls. Aesop

Good morning, all! I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving (for my friends here in the states who celebrate it)

As most of you, I spent Wednesday in the kitchen and Thursday with family. Friday...? Well, I do not like the crowds so I try to stay in and off the streets. :) We enjoyed our free day.  Alas, no I don't invest in Netflix here so I have not seen the Gilmore Girls reboot--so no spoilers in the comments, please! We're hoping like mad (lighting candles, sacrificing hobbits and dwarves) that they'll get their act together and release the episodes to DVD. And yeah, there may've been some thousands of words worth of writing. :) I told ya, I very rarely take a day off.

Geeze Louise, is it Thanksgiving weekend all ready??? 

What am I grateful for?  My family and friends of course, you all, my readers. Those that read and love my stories. (Thank you!!) The good weather we've had here the last few days. The fact that I might actually have something I made to wear when we do get chilly! :) Florida, eh? Good coffee, good tea, books, reading, pop culture. The great music I love, the nearing release date of Star Wars (*rubs hands gleefully*) and much, much more.


Oh, now before I forget... This being Small Business Saturday, I'm going to (attempt to) keep this short so I can get out to some of my own local small businesses. If you're staying in and would like to still shop for your bookworms and friends, may I suggest, Passion's Sacred Dance? It's on sale (the ebook) for $.99 and the paperback also is a % off, through Monday, also, If you like steampunk or Victorian Romance, the paperback of Watchmaker's Heart is 10% off through Monday.

If you like candles and shiny stuff, my friend Beth is having a Grand Opening sale at her newly opened shop Seawitch Designs. She's got the best pagan themed and homemade themed candles, and some lovely new journals I'm drooling over. Also, Deborah Castellano's  Mermaid & Crow is having a sale. Details here. I love the look of her candles and her handspun yarn (can I just say, I'm too chicken to try working handspun yarn yet?!?) And don't forget The Forest Witch teas, if you have tealovers on your list.

Anyway, those are on my list.... So I'd better get a move on so I can make it to some of those local shops (who all seem to close early, for some reason!)

Anyway, I just wanted to stop in here, say a belated happy Thanksgiving/Turkey day holiday weekend, and I'll talk to you soon! Nano friends, keep writing! The finish line is in sight. Literally! I stopped just shy of my nightly goal, yesterday, so I should have a word count update for the Nanometer soon. :)  Enjoy your day!

Nanowrimo day 23: Progress Report #amwriting #Nanowrimo2016

 
So, how've y'all been doing in your word counts, my friends? Mine have been... better than I'd hoped, given hand pain. Some days I've not hit the 1667 needed, and but mostly this month I've exceeded the count (case in point,  yesterday=3,000+ words and the day before was 4,000 words). It just all depends on the day. I've got baking to do today, before the holiday, but I still think I can hit 50,000 before the end of the month. In fact, I'm sure of it, where I left off last night. I might even pass it on Monday or Tuesday, if all goes well. My official count today?


36234 / 50000 words. 72% done!

(No, I have not updated it on the Nano site. I usually only do that at 10s. This time, I'm hoping the next update will be 50k so haven't stopped to do any validation. Sleeping, eating, yes; email, yes; blog, yes, and okay, maybe I've paused to do a wee bit of historical research, but validation? Not so much.

Boy, I tell ya, that 36k certainly looked further away than 72% until I updated that bar! Woot! Quite a difference from saying earlier in the month that I wasn't sure about this, right?

Granted, the knitting and blogging has had to suffer, and I've been meaning to make a Nano-tagged video but...best laid plans. Writing comes first, and  that's okay. :)

How are y'all doing with your Nano projects?

Nanowrimo update day #19 #amwriting #Nanowrimo2016



Just a quickie for today. How ya'll doing? I'm ...ouchie! And a day...well,I won't say wasted. Some days I've not hit the 1667 needed, and some days I've exceeded the count. It just all depends on the day. I did do some writing yesterday, but I'm starting to feel my carpal tunnel rear it's ugly head, so I needed a break. So I shot some videos for the Youtube Pagan Challenge. Who, me? Perpetually behind? Surely you jest?

The Videos are:



and more here, if you'd like to take a break and do some mindless Youtube surfing.

On the writing front, I decided to make a left turn with my Nanowrimo manuscript so a little bit of the wip has changed. It's been a fun change, though. I've also noticed (again) that Nano's counter vs. my computer's word count are slightly different so I always have to seem to do a little more than my goal mark to make sure Nano's goal fits correctly. Oh well. it's not a big deal.

How'm I doing today?  25k words down, more to go, and 10 days to do it. Yeah. I got this. :) I think, with the idea I'm coming up with, in the end the manuscript will exceed 50,000 words. I'm just hoping I can hit that 50,000 before November 30th's cut off. I've managed before (yes, even with Thanksgiving break).

How are y'all doing with your Nano projects?

Nanowrimo--day 16 Are we making progress? #amwriting #Nanowrimo16

Two weeks in and ...well? I've got just over 21,000 words in my Nanowrimo project and steaming hopefully toward 25k--which is much more than I had before! And you know what? I might not have to throw all of them out in the second draft. Or if I do, oh well. I'll live.

And don't say I would be further along if I wasn't watching videos like Rachael Stephens' on Youtube. I indulge in some mindless Youtube surfing after doing my words for the day--or when recharging. I can't be the only one who does that. Right? (Right?)

At any rate, I haven't updated my total yet. That's on the list of projects for tonight, if I can squeeze it in. I did so much yesterday, I'm surprised my fingers aren't stiff and protesting too much for me to write anything the rest of the week.
Yeah, it hurts.

 I've had a bit of a breakthrough though, in that I tried making a tentative *shudder* outline for what's to happen in the next section of the story. *Sshhh* Don't tell the muse!

Outlining has never gone well for me.Well, realistically, maybe what I've done is more like a list than an outline. Yeah, that won't scare the muse off. ;) We'll see how much I stick to it in the next 30,000 words. It was inspired by Linda Barsi's idea here.

I have to be honest, for the most part I seem to have done this kind of thing for a while now. However, I don't usually write it out 1. 2. 3. Usually I'll go "This first, this last. More WTFstuff comes here in the middle". :) With this one, my outline has looked like: "This first and...um...um...um...?"  Which I haven't used as a writing model for ...well, years.So when I hit that um...um...um...stage I thought, "aw, heck, let's try an outline". So I'm hoping the "outline" will get me a wee bit further.

Out from under the "planning as I go" stage, I can say I've hit that point in my Nano project where I feel other projects in different stages whispering "Come edit me! Aren't I ugly enough for your attention? MeMeMe!" Anyone else hear that?


No? Just me?


Oooookkkkkaaaayyyyy! *Whistles* Going back to my little rubber haunted room now.

and I would just like to say if I didn't have my crockpot and got all the week's cooking done on Monday, I 'm not sure I would've gotten that 22,000 words done by this point. Now if I could just have one for the blogging....

Those of you who are participating in Nanowrimo, how are you doing, thus far?

Sunday post on Monday

Sunday Post was conceived by Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.


Whoops! I meant to have this one go live yesterday and the music post go up today. Silly me, I didn't schedule them right. Duh. Okay, so hello! How was your week? Mine was okay. I've been working hard on my Nanowrimo project and ... I feel like I'm trudging through mud,frankly. I'm still not quite through 16,000 words.(No, I take it back. It is. See below)

*deep breath* It's okay, I don't have to win this one. Really. It's okay. (and then, I saw a blogger say she'd done 60,000 words in three days. How da fuck???) I don't think my hands could take it. Anyway, it's still going. I'm not sure where it's going--no that's not exactly true, I do (sortakinda) but it is. It's a story I've had kicking around for a long time, so no worries. We've got more than we did before and so we will get there. :)

My sprints were interesting, in that I tend to type a lot more in a short amount of time than I thought I did before I discovered the sprint counter. :)

Plus I had some research to do which resulted in cutting out about a thousand or so words. Still working on that title though. Titles=hard. Anyway, as of this morning (Well, yesterday but I only typed all the handwritten stuff I did yesterday into the computer this morning), I made it up to:



16143 / 55000ish words. 29% done!

I will say, the majority of that 16k has been written in the last 14 days, though. :) I'm not really sure my end point will be 55k or even 50k. I'm just sorta letting this one go, final word count wise, and we'll see what happens when we get there.

Let's see... writing, I got a few new videos up (okay, I think I see one of the problems with doing the prescribed Nanowrimo daily run!) I'm so far behind in the Pagan Youtube Challenge, I doubt I will get to all of them before the year is over. C'est la vie.

Reading this week: Still City in the Autumn Stars. Getting through that one slowly, too. There was a pretty blech fight scene in it last night that I needed to stop. Nightmare potential and we didn't want that, as late as I was reading. I'm also reading Ruined City by A.F. Stewart and enjoying it as well. :)

Books I acquired this week:
Enchanted by Destiny (Paranormals of Arilase Book 2) by Beth Caudill
Here Comes the Witch (A Paranormal Witch Cozy Mystery): (Main Street Witches #1) by Ani Gonzalez
 Must Love Ghosts: A Haunting Paranormal Romance (Banshee Creek Book 1) also by Ani Gonzalez
Knead to Know by Liz Schulte (actually, I got that one the last week of October, but just apparently forgot to add it to the list)
and Dark Desires by Eve Silver (ditto on when I acquired this one)

 Anyway, so that was me, today/this past week. I've got to get some dinner cut up and in the crockpot. Chicken, potatoes, and veggies soup Mmm..... Same as every week, so that's why I don't add my weekly menu much here. :) We're simple as far as our diets go. Have a good week! (or few days, depending)

What's on your Shuffle this week--#4

This week, it's been a little bit of throwback. Are there any Stevie Nicks fans out there in the tribe? Well... No, she's not released a new album (grumblewewantnewmusicgrumble!) but a remix "new/old" version of two of her classic albums released recently. I've been listening to the reboot (new/old version) of Bella Donna lately. More specifically, the half with all the alternate takes. Not much more to say about those but that they are really neat and I'm enjoying it. If you're into her, don't miss it!

Once again, for the Veterans out there.

It's been a few days, I realize.And what a few days, huh? A friend of mine would argue we are social animals, but I would argue, some of us aren't. Between a funeral and then all the rage flying around online,  I've needed the days away from this blog, because I'm finding I'm currently drained, emotionally.


So, it's been DVDs and knitting for me just to keep my equilibrium in check.

On the upside, I've got a chunk of my Nanowrimo project done. But before the day goes by us, I just wanted to say thank you to any and all Vets who might be reading this. Thank you for your service, for your sacrifice. May the Morrigan and her kin watch over you all!

What's on your Shuffle this week--#3


radioheart by Juli D. Revezzo; radio photo from Free digital Photos; heart from scrapkit

This week, I'm listening to more old school stuff. When we were out last week we found a copy of a DVD called It Might Get Loud, which is a documentary of Jack White, Jimmy Page, and The Edge playing together. For a Zeppelin fan, and a fan of White Stripes (like me) it's pretty neat.Especially watching Jack White teach Page and Edge his song "Seven Nation Army".
 


Jack White. Teaching Jimmy Page. Can you imagine??


You can see the trailer on Youtube here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ul6xOdPCsCE
 
There you go; something to take into the polling booth with you this week. (Not really, but you get the idea!)
 
 So that's what I'm listening to right now. How about you all?

Sunday Post--first week of November.

blogtitle banner by Juli D. Revezzo
I hope your week went well. Mine was... busy. Yes, I foolishly signed into Nanowrimo again. As of this writing I didn't work on the Nano project at all for more than a few hundred words, but added 8,000 words into something else--Something that I've had a tentative deadline for, for this week. This for the last nearly two years. It's not even close to being ready to release yet. *headdesk* I've sortakinda officially shelved releasing until sometime next year. Give me time to work out the bugs. Besides, I'm closer to finishing/releasing another project. No reason to put that off. And I'm going back to the original Nano project this week--So technically, I suppose I did sorta finish (almost) all my revisions from last year, this year as I had predicted last December. (I guess that ole intuition does sorta work from time to time)

Meanwhile, I contacted all my winners of the Magickal Samhain giveaway. Yep, busy.

Also this week...because I was crunching that "no way I'm going to get it out this year" project, to the tune of taking a night off for shoulder pain, (8,000 typed words in one week!) I used that time to experiment with writing on the phone. Verdict? It will work in a pinch, if I'm not home, but I don't get as much done as I do when I'm in front of the computer.

And I finished knitting a headband (this one) for a Christmas present that's currently in the blocking stage.

I love the striped quality of that yarn, don't you? It's one skein of yarn, just dyed like that. Neat! :) These projects always take me longer to finish than I expect so I'm glad I made it in enough time to, you know, wrap it up before the New Year holiday.*phew!*

I also squeezed in some reading, a little bit in two different books. I'm so close to the beginning of those, though...I'm not ready to say anything about what they are.  Hopefully, I'll let you know soon.

On the new pile, I found some exciting things at the bookstore (well, exciting to me). Did y'all know Michael Moorcock had a new comic out? (*pause and insert omgomgomg!fangirl squee here*) I knew it was in the works, I'd just never seen it...until yesterday. I found three of them (I think they're compilations of the entire 12 issue comics) at the store: Elric: The Balance Lost, vol. 1, vol.2, and 3. YAAAAA!! It's another of his Elric-crosses-with-Von Bek-and-Corum tales. :) I'm almost finished with City in the Autumn Stars but no doubt I'll be diving into Balance Lost really soon.

Addendum to last post about #Nanowrimo2016--or, slowing down when?

And then, Aine Orga reminds me, this being the tail end of the year, just after Samhain, and just before Winter Solstice, it's more the time to slow down than speed up. Time to give ourselves a break.

Which puts the thought back in my mind why the hell is Nanowrimo scheduled in November?!?

I mean, realistically,  I get why they chose November: To give us poor, broke authors time to create something for Xmas gifts. But that doesn't factor in time for your beta readers to read your crap first draft, nor time for you to revise it, and get it back to your editor, and them time to read it, and you time to sulk and revise it and sulk some more.

Just to give you a bit more realistic look at how long it may take to produce gold from your Nano coal: Lady of the Tarot took me six years from seed of first idea (before I discovered Nano, to be frank, but ironically, about the same time of year) t'ill the day I felt it ready to hit publish.

Six years for one book, but that was actually a really, really teeth-pulling project. At one point, my good friend that eggs me on thought for sure our dear Lady wouldn't see the light of day, ever.

 And that, my friends,is why I have so many writing projects going at once. I'm sure it's probably the same for all my other published writer friends. Our Nano projects are just one more for the "soon to be revised" piles.

(Case in point: even though I wrote in my last post that I want to whip my barely-started Victorian into shape, Caitlin's got a great idea she's wanting me to steam ahead at, too. And she may actually take point. Too bad Nano doesn't give you slots for multiple projects. :))

So I don't know...We'll see how my Nanowrimo run turns out this year. Anybody got a brand new set of fingers I can borrow this month?

Still not sure about #Nanowrimo2016

Why do I say I'm "not sure"? (No, that's not a reference to Idiocracy!) Simply, if you've followed my blogs for any length of time you know I've tried Nanwrimo before. Even "won" one year.


I used it in... 2014 (I think?) with Mourning Dove Locket to get my head around that story. To be very honest, I think I crammed half of MDL into that last week of Nano that year. I attempted it with Druid Warrior's Heart for the same reason (um, switch 'em. DWH was in--oh, lord!, 2012); I finished DWH's November run getting real close that year. I think it was... 48,000 or something like that. I moved its forthcoming follow up into the next Nano (2013). Spent that year gussying up DWH, and as for the follow up?  Yes, you read right, it's still in the works. Ugh.(Strangely enough, LADY OF THE TAROT is one of the few manuscripts-in-progress that didn't get logged into NanoWrimo. I worked on it around all the others.)


I did attempt Camp Wrimo this summer. I had a  *cough* secret*cough* project I was trying to bulk up so it seemed like a good idea. But revisions of other things took precedence and so I ended up bowing out. I'm now almost done with that project (I think! I hope.)  As of yesterday, my total word count for the year was nothing to sneeze at, anyway. 111,930 words. Yeah. Twice as much as Nano's official (arbitrary) 50k (but I will admit, that is half the word count of the year before). Because? I'm  still revising the stuff from the year before (and from 2013, apparently)!
  
I've also had three releases this year, and this blog, and other stuff going on that requires the fingers and thinking of anything but new fictional text.


I do have two books I'm revising now (this month!), plus two more you haven't heard about yet, (one of which my friend is going to bop me if I don't get off my butt and get to releasing!) And one which I've been trying to get out to a beta reader since early 2015. (which I wrote something like 40,000 words of in two weeks of January, 2014, that one, if I remember. Hey, when the bug bites... :))


 Revising all that text is the biggest problem with Nano: forcing myself to write fast involves way less care to the writing and more revisions than I would have if I didn't cram a novel into one month. And yet, nearly 112k  this year, isn't anything to sneeze at. That's what comes from not scheduling myself to write only in one month. Sure the difference in word count from last year to this bugs me, but... I don't want to drop what I'm doing right now--revising one book I have to get out to my beta reader now now, and revising one she's already seen. Guess which one I want to release first? 


(My editor is going to bop me!) 



However, I did just sign in and fill out my "novel" info for this year. I'd like to do another Victorian Romance, but as you can see, I've got a lot of other more pressing revisions going on right now. So I don't know how far through it I'm going to be able to get before November 30th.



Point is, if you want to write, sit your butt down at the computer, sans social media!, and just write.  Even 400 words a day will get you there. You might surprise yourself with what you can do if you apply a little self-determination to mix.


So, I hope y'all do well in Nano this month, but I don't know how I'm going to do or how many official check ins I'll be able to make. If I can just get a good working title for the project besides "Character's Name's Victorian Romance", I might have something. :) I'd like to get beyond chapter one (yes, I confess, I have one chapter I've already written and been struggling with ever since), but we'll see. Good luck, everyone!

Five Facts about Samhain--#Sundayblogshare #Samhain #Samhain2016

 
 
Samhain (or Halloween) is one of my favorite holidays. I always loved dressing up. I've been Alice in Wonderland...a witch, an angel, a vampire. Even Princess Leia!

Since I've gotten a little older, every year about this time I find myself revisiting the stories around Samhain. By now, most of you have heard the accepted stories about Samhain, how it's night when the veil's thinnest, how it's the Celtic new year. Well...


According to the lore, there's no doubt Samhain was important.

What we do know is the Celts would hold their most important Tribal meetings at this time of year. And the lore itself bears this out. For instance, in "The Sick Bed of Cuchulainn" we find this at the very opening:

"EVERY year the men of Ulster were accustomed to hold festival together; and the time when they held it was for three days before Samhain, the Summer-End, and for three days after that day, and upon Samhain itself."

So they definitely saw it as the end of summer. Many a time when a fae being or god crosses into our world, it's at Samhain.

In the story of Nera, a mischievous soul asks the hero Nera to "put a rope around the foot of a hanged criminal" The ghost then wakes up and asks Nera for a drink. EEP!!!

So supernatural mischief, yes. Important day, yes. New year? Well.... some sources say yes, some sources don't mention new year in conjunction with it at all. Whatever the ancient Celts really thought about Samhain, we'll never know. But they left us with what has become a day of fun.


Foods of Samhain
  I thought I'd send you off with a little feast. Some sources say Pigs were slaughtered to give to the kings as tribute. So definitely pigs formed some portion of Samhain feasts. Some sources I read suggest pomegranates are good to eat on this night, however…. Remember Persephone. I think I’d stay away from the pomegranates, if I were you!

Apples were bit, too. Apples were considered a food of the Otherworld. For instance, in the Irish epic poem  The Voyage of Bran, about the god-king's journey into the Otherworld, a woman comes from the Otherworld and offers a apple branch (silver, no less!) to Bran. With this, he sets off on his journey.


Peeling an apple was used as a divination tool: The longer the peel, the longer the person doing the peeling would live. They were cored and candied and baked, for the Samhain revelers' feasts,
Also, pour a libation (of apple juice?) for loved ones who've passed, esp. if you've lost a few this year (I have, alas!)

(*it's hard to say whether Samhain was a holiday outside the British isles. I'd have to do more research on it to answer that question!)


So, there you go. A few little facts about Samhain. And if you do invite your Ancestors in tonight? Do leave them a little feast, perhaps on a little plate on your altar. They will be hungry! Have a wonderful Samhain.

What are you planning for the festival?
