I have a confession to make: I am completely obsessed with AI art. :D I've been experimenting with the Dream app by Wombo on my phone for days and days now, trying to get awesome images of characters and places from Hunter's Moon. It certainly isn't perfect, but I've improved my technique (which keywords I use, etc.) and gotten a lot of cool pics!
For my next few blog posts, I thought I'd show you a bunch of the best ones, accompanying some character sketches (pun always intended) so you can get to know some of the characters from my books!
As I promised last month, here’s a poem (really, a parody) that I wrote recently! :)
[“Ode” is short for Odious! ;P Also, for those who may not be aware: April is one of the most dreaded months for Americans because it’s when taxes are due! April 15th in particular (although it’s the 18th this year) is a day of infamy. ;P]
Well, I've just completed another revolution around the sun this week,* and to celebrate, I thought I would give you guys a gift, hobbit-style! :) So here's a deleted scene, an excerpt that got cut from the beginning of Hunter's Moon because it didn't get the plot started fast enough.
Well, I decided to be cliché again and do a love-related post in February. LOL...
I'm not going to do a list of 28 things like I did a couple of years ago. Just some random ramblings and some pictures. :) Because (and this is NOT a thing I love) I'm crazy busy right now!!
Well, this past year certainly flew by like a whirlwind! If you want to see what I got up to, work- and business-wise, check out this post in Thinklings’ blog. I thought I’d talk here in my personal blog about more, of course, personal stuff. ;)
This post is a continuation from last month’s. Here are the other six (fiction) books I read in the second half of this year:
Does anyone else feel like this year has absolutely flown by at top speed??
Back in June/July, I followed a trend I saw on TikTok, the “mid-year reading check,” which was a great idea for a blog post (and ended up as two posts). This month and next month, I present to you my end-of-year reading check!
So, here’s what (fiction) I’ve read in the second half of this year, in chronological order, with a bit of commentary about each book:
Well . . . guess what! For our tenth wedding anniversary, earlier this month, Oscar and I (finally) went to Hawaii! :D As you'd expect, it was AMAZING and we had a fantastic time!! Below are some of the best pictures from our trip! <3
Well, I’m copying off Katherine this time...heh. (And her post isn’t even quite up yet!) Plus, I’m doing a similar topic for the next Thinklings newsletter next week—you can sign up here to read it—so I decided to whip up a quick nostalgic post for my blog, too.
Yes, this is a rather eclectic set of topics and somewhat of a rambling post! Heh. But you’ll come to see how those topics are related. It started off as a footnote to my last blog post, but it grew and mushroomed and before I knew it, it was long enough to be its own post—and since I’m always in need of (and struggle with getting) new ideas for content for this blog, I jumped on it!
