Your Friday moment of Zen thinks this is not cool. Not cool at all. (wink)
Here’s a snippet from my work in progress, MIME SHAFT: book 3 of the MIME series. #bookqw
I had the original idea for the Mime series when my children were small, and I was struggling as a dirt-poor single parent. I kept notes on it, but really didn’t start writing the novels until I joined an online writing workshop about 18 years ago. Even then, there was very little that I could do was far as writing time was concerned. I was a single parent while I was taking care of my mother when she was dying, while I was working two jobs, while I was going to college. And when my mother died and college was over I had to deal with mandatory overtime and a long commute that made for 80-hour weeks. But I never gave up on the dream.
I now have the time (in between renovating this house, taking care of my wonderful husband, and my editing career) to finally write these books. Book 1 – Mime – is nearly finished. Book 2 – The Sands of Mime, which I wrote first of all because it contained the original concept – is done. And I’m about halfway through writing book 3 – Mime Shaft. Book 4, Mime Stream, continues to flesh out and I cannot wait to share this world with you all.
Well, okay I can wait, but I think I’ve waited long enough. I want to get this done!
This post brought to you by the elusive, endangered Sand Cat. Thought to be extinct in the wild, but still there in small numbers, they are bred in several zoos.

This week’s #bookqw keyword is “Simple.” Here’s a sample from Writing the Entertaining Story, my book that shares all I learned in 15 yrs of running @Abyss_Apex

Your Friday moment of Zen for February 12 is there for you.
Every Friday I try to share something uplifting, lighthearted, and just plain fun. Watch this space.
This week’s #bookqw keyword is “tangle.” That word was not in my fiction WIP. However, here’s a selection from my non-fiction work-in-progress, Wolves’ Masquerade.
Wolves’ Masquerade is, I hope, the last item affected by my recent kitten-induced fried laptop. I’m currently working on it on two screens, trying to combine the best of two versions from my backups, and adding a few hundred new words of it that I lost when I gave up on One Drive, which would not allow me to have anything on my C drive… and that made me uncomfortable.
I’m really excited to share this one with you all when it’s finished.
Here’s a recent picture of my new cat, Snickers.
