My Flyboy and I will be leaving Dallas tomorrow and back on the road heading to Charleston.

Back in Dallas, more ideas to use while I was in Cincy. But the main thing Cincy made me want was Pale Demon which isn’t out yet and won’t be until Feb/Mar. I did get to read part of the first chapter and like always Kim Harrison is wicked cool.
In Dallas, and its been a crazy day.
I have so many wicked cool ideas to add to Blood that it might become more of a novalle than a short story but we’ll have to wait and see. The journey has been helpful even as I’ve gotten sick with a migraine and had to vomit which isn’t fun but will add to Blood’s content perfectly. We even saw snow today which I think I can use during the main characters travels. So the drive is truly working out well for research.
It isn’t making me feel any better about Artemis. I still miss him and wish he was traveling with us, but I know he’s with Cleo and Ladybug playing and having a good time. When we get to Dallas I’ll put pictures of Arty up like I did Cle. I just haven’t been able to yet, I don’t have all the pictures with me.
I know I’ve been slacking the last couple of days, I’m sorry. I had to fly home to drop Isaac off at my Mom’s that was fun, big black cat going through security twice… don’t ask. Lol. I also got a whoping migraine that made me yak not fun. Spent a day in Dallas and tried to get home friday I saw four airports and got home 3 A.M. Sat morning. The house is almost done, it has to be, we’re out of it tomorrow so all thats left is cleaning. Fun, fun, fun.
I still have classes and tonight I will work on them hopefully. Cross your fingers. After tomorrow I’ll be back to my normal schedule of chatting. See you soon.
There are days I really with I had a mentor. When I worked in the legal field I had one. He was an attorney I worked for back in Dallas. He’s no longer with us but during my time working for him I learned a lot. He showed me the good side of the law he worked in and opened my eyes. Before working with Richard I thought all PI (personal injury) attorneys were ambulance chasers. Richard wasn’t and being the kind of attorney he was made him a great mentor.
Now that I’ve changed gears and am trying to get published I wish I had a writing mentor. I know you’re probably wondering why I don’t consider my Thesis adviser a mentor. Well that’s because she didn’t really do anything for me. I excepted more like what you see and hear about on TV. and in major colleges but I didn’t get that. I think some of my classmates got that from other professors but I fell through the cracks.
I think I’d learn a lot from a mentor and there are a few author’s that I’d love to have as a mentor but with their schedules I doubt they’d have time. Author’s like Kim Harrison, Patricia Briggs and Vicki Pettersson. Still it would be so cool to get their knowledge and have their opinions when working on edits or when I got a rejection, bad review or something related. It would be wicked cool to run ideas off them too, because you know they’ve probably had similar thoughts. But the likelihood of something like that happening is very small. A girl can dream though and that’s what I’ll keep doing because lets face it, I may not be too Chicken to put my name and face out thereto be published but I am to chicken to ask on of these authors to be a mentor. I know it’s silly but I don’t think I could handle their rejection. I look up to these women and want to some day stand along side them.
