"And She's Going Dowwwwnnnnn..."

I'm going to cut to the chase right here: I'm taking down the blog. Well, not taking it down, per se, but at least taking a break from writing posts. (Yeah, I know, I need to! I write SO MANY posts that you guys just can't keep up with them all! Just kidding.)

It's kind of hard to keep remembering to not keep my nonexistent blog readers hanging. I think my last post was in September, and before that, May! Not cool, you guys. (I meant I'm not cool for doing that.)

So as of right now, you can still read other blog posts, but don't be expecting anyone to be updating it. Unless something amazing happens, and I just want to share it. But I have to face it: I don't have an exciting life!! I have absolutely nothing to blog about. So yeah. Farewell, fine friends! <3

I Was Dead, but Now I've Come Back To Life Like Captain America! Er, I Mean, Jesus!

Wow, folks! Is it really September? And my last post was in May? Well, you won't believe me when I say I've died and come back, but it must be true or I wouldn't be writing it here. :)

How is everyone on this lovely autumn day?

Maybe it's not autumn for you. Maybe you live in the Yukon and it's 20 degrees below zero. Or maybe you live in the Southern Hemisphere and it's spring for you. Doesn't matter, here it's gorgeously cool and the trees are changing color, the birds are singing, the smell of pumpkin candles is in the air...

So a few things have happened with me. Yes, I got my cover figured out, which no one cares about any more since that was May and now it's September (unless you live in some alternate universe and today is actually Luna 5). But a main thing is the hopeful startup of my writer's group!

Basically, me and about 7 or 8 other people (or more) will be posting chapters of our story on a website. We'll all have pen names too! I'm thinking something like "Jennifer Doyle" or something else that is far from my real name. Ideas? I think that pseudonyms are great in that they give people who may or may not know each other and may or may not feel comfortable sharing their precious WIPs with each other.

Another thing is the TV show Sherlock from BBC!!! It is amazing!!! Benedict Cummerbatch is Sherlock and Martin Freeman is Watson. It's really well done but extremely intense. So I've been consumed with Sherlock Holmes stories lately. I've seen movies, read books, seen plays about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's greatest literary heroes.

Anyway, I'm not dead but I do need to get off Pinterest and get outside before it gets too cold to be unbearable. Can't wait for fall!

On Alcoholic Establishments and Cheese

Two blondes walk into a bar...

You'd think that one of them would have seen it coming!!!

(Da dum, CRASH!!)

Sorry, that was really bad...

It's been a while, friends! Mostly because my eyeballs have dried out trying to match the colors of a certain graphic with a certain background and a certain text to make a certain cover for a certain CreateSpace novel that was finished a LONG time ago.

I am on cover 9, people. COVER NINE!!!

And I'm getting just a tad bit irritated...

But enough about me, I'm just ranting here and giving you a little update on my pet project. :)

But really, there's not enough going on lately to tell about... except maybe the planned shooting of Artemis 2!!

No, Artemis 2 is not a person. It is the WIP name of Catching Fire-- and I can only deduce that it's called this because Artemis was the Greek god of hunting? But I think it would be SUPERB to be an extra in it!!!!

Sorry, no I'm not promoting the Hunger Games... don't mind me...

Anything else? Oh yes, I've heard it said that if you eat Cheddar cheese right before going to bed, you dream about a celebrity. I haven't tried it myself, yet, but I plan on doing it soon.

Whoa... that was just really random...

Anyway, sweet cheesy dreams and good luck to me on staring at a computer screen for hours on end trying to get the PERFECT shade of yellow...
