Celebrate: Dueling Turtles & Giveaways

The Inner-Self Duel
My good self (start writing again!) is fighting 
my bad self (watch TV, eat junk food, sleep late!)
Who will win?

This week I'm celebrating:
1) Using the AC and staying inside most of the time is keeping me from turning into a barbecued chicken. Yay AC!
2) Got some chores done, including the all-important cleaning of the AC filters.
3) I've been getting a lot of compliments from reviewers and Twitter folk on BLOODWALKER's cover.  That makes me so happy!

Do you have internal arguments about doing what you're supposed to do and what you want to do?

My kind and wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits Blog

Celebrate: Pokemon & Giveaways

It turns out I didn't have the flu last week. The fever was from a jaw infection due to grinding my teeth when I sleep. That's the third time it's happened in a year, and the other two ended in abscesses. Apparently when I tell myself I "must" write my WIP and work harder, I get really stressed and clench my teeth at night.


So I need to take it easy.
Stop and smell the roses.  
Or play Pokemon Go.


Anyone playing Pokemon Go?
