Will the Grinch Steal Christmas?


So frustrating, time flew by and I still haven’t got all of my x-mas shopping done, work, work, work!! I have to pay the bills.

My husband works the morning shift now and leaves at 5am, my son goes to school at 7am. I have a later schedule, so when I get home at night I only have a couple of hours to hang out with my family before my husband goes to bed, plus I’ve been working weekends.

What normally is my writing time has been eaten up by steam cleaning the carpets (I have a dog and a cat and a friend of mine has a new puppy that lives at our house 1/2 time due to his working double shifts– not to mention my dog has an on again off again boyfriend that comes to visit once in a while), shopping, and many other items on my list I have put off.

My ceiling is leaking in three different places now and the roofer can’t fix my roof until the middle of January:(  State Farm was one of those items on the list and still is. I have a feeling I’ll be sitting in their office again.

I’m committed to cooking x-mas eve dinner and I still have gift wrapping to do… Yes, I am overwhelmed and took on too much this year, besides I am No Chef. I’m not very fond of the art of cooking. If I had my way I’d take a nutrition pill everyday and Not cook. Well, except for bacon-I Love bacon! Has anyone come out with a nutrition pill that fills you up yet? Wish me luck with the dinner.

To top everything off I’m still trying to fine tune Blake before the book goes to print, I’ve been working on my YA Novel and writing some short stories in my extra spare time at work, which hasn’t been much.

Phew, I can knock mailing x-mas cards and gifts off the list:)

There are some days the Grinchy green wants to show and those are normally the days I would like to hide my head under the blankets and not get out of bed. I’m almost ready for this year to be over, past ready for my roof to be fixed and Blake to be printed. The roofing business is booming. I’ve been waiting for the roofers for 4 months now, that’s how much damage the hail storms did over the summer and the gaping hole in my bedroom ceiling doesn’t keep the cold out and can’t be fixed until the roof is. 

That’s it for now… This rant has made me feel much better. Thank You all for listening and Grinchy/Merry… Merry/Grinchy Christmas!!!

Lynn Thompson’s home is in the Land of Enchantment, and, yes, the land is enchanting. The skies are blue, the stars are bright., and there are beautiful panoramic landscapes surrounding her hometown. Lynn wades through the craziness of life to follow her true passion, writing fiction. You can find her, or not, trekking through the mountains, searching for fairies and vortexes, keeping her eye out for anything paranormal, or sitting in the hot springs in her spare time. Lynn doesn’t have a specific genre she writes in. Characters have a way of leading her stories. She follows. Lynn is also a sponge when it comes to knowledge. She’s always on the move to continue her education in writing, marketing, social media, digital media, and hopes to find the extra time to add some criminal investigation classes to her repertoire. Lynn has three novels out: Blake, Sterling, and Tarnished Gold. Blake is the beginning of Montana’s story. Her need for seclusion, at least, for one winter. She does not get what she wants. There is someone or something in the mountains stalking her, people keep showing up on her doorstep, and she meets Max. Max knows what is hunting Montana, but won’t tell her. Montana’s lack of trust in Max drives her to fix her own problems. If she had known what she’d be confronting that night, she never would have sedated Max. Sterling is the second novel in the Montana Dayton series. Montana moves to Florida hoping to escape her old life, and regain her normal life back, but her past has come back to haunt her. Not only does she start losing time, she continues to wake up every morning wearing gorgeous jewels and is surrounded by precious gems. She never remembers where, or who she’s getting the glittery baubles from and is hell bent to get back her memories and return the jewels. Afraid she has been out robbing houses in the middle of the night, she is determined to figure out what is happening on her own. That is until the dreams and the strong pull to explore the gulf. When she finally realizes she needs help, she is powerless to get it. Tarnished Gold is Sam’s story and will be coming out around the new year. Sam first appeared in Sterling and demanded her own novel. Lynn has bowed to Sam’s wishes and is writing that story now. Lynn is also the proud owner of: Dark Fates. Eight short stories that are fun, but still on the dark side. Dark Fates-Madness. Four dark short stories. News Worthy. News Worthy stands alone with five short stories. Watching the news first thing in the morning may not be fun, but dissecting news clips and re-writing them into short stories that had a different ending was a blast! Dark Fates Collections is compiled of Dark Fates, Dark Fates-Madness, News Worthy, and features Karma Shay’s adventures.
