House, Yard, & Writing Time

untitledHow I would love to put writing time first, but I am in the process of taking over an extra room we have for an office…

As many of you know, I’ve had to take on extra work, so I’ve been working 6-7 day weeks. This next one is going to be a 12 day week, then, whew, I am hoping to be able to find some freelance jobs and take two days off a week at my other job. My husband has also agreed to taking on more hours at work when they need him. He’s only been part-time for a long time. What can I say, I’m running on burn out, and would love to get back to writing:)

House work:( The reason I am moving my office is because it was in the living room for a while (we had a roommate.) Our roomy has moved in with his beautiful girlfriend (now I have an office), and I have been fighting the constant blare of the TV.  Apparently I’ve been living with some serious tunnel vision, my house is pretty messy for my standards. So as I’m moving the house is getting a good cleaning, pictures of my new office to come.

Yard Work:( Since our dog has passed the utility guy can now come into the back yard and read the electric- or can he? The side of the house is pretty narrow (that’s where he needs to get in-from the side gate), and he would need to be a very skinny guy or very short. I went back there the other afternoon-how embarrassing- the whole side is overgrown with sunflowers. It’s a good thing my cat is tiny, and can walk under them! I won’t mention all of the weeds I have to take care of from this wonderful rain we’ve been having!

I have so gotten behind on everything!

The reason I am writing this post is because I have to get a few things done. My postings will be less frequent for a little while. With my new office area I will have the blessed quite I need to write-I just need the extra time to pull everything together. LOL I’m almost wishing for winter, that would take the yard work off my list. Almost.

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. Visit Lynn at: Website: Twitter: @lynnthompson8 Facebook: Goodreads:
