Yes, I remembered. Though shhh.. it’s like 2:15 am in the morning, but I will schedule this to go out when I should be up.
Please remember, this is Sunday, my day away from the computer. I know!! You are shocked! Wendy? Away from the computer? What the heck?!?!?!
Since last Sunday was a success, we are making it permanent. And then we went one step farther, since it really took me all day to edit 4 pages, something that normally takes me a couple of hours if that, talking with Karen, we decided that Saturday is the day to play on the computer. No working on stories. Instead, if I am here, and on the computer, I get to play with my new video making program, or making banners. Or gif’s that move and stuff. Or whatever I want, as long as it is not a story.
I spend every day on this thing, but weekends are hard, everyone comes into my office to pull me into discussions that I have to pay attention to. Or we spend the day out shopping or walking around. Plus to be blunt, if I only work, and not allowed to play, well it aint good. Not at all. Instead, we are being proactive and pushing for me to have days away from the stories.
Other news, we have spruced up the site some. I was bored with all the writing on the side, so talking to Gyllene, she mentioned that I can replace the Betas names with buttons that once clicked will take the user to their site. Then I asked about the gifs with names. We figured out I could do it, and I went to town. Everyone either chose their own Gifs, or I somehow picked ones they love. Bertie Bott, Gyllene and 4PadFoot all made their own.
Then, I had more fun. 4Padfoot got online with me, and we played with our programs. She found an easier way for me to do what I was doing, and can add frames and so on. If you want to see what I did, click on the button below. For those that don’t know, Andrew Lee Potts was my first inspiration.
This is what happens when I get bored of things. I push my envelopes. Plus this past week was a drama filled week and I just needed to get my mind off of it. Yeck.
Good news for those that are following my health. Which seems funny to me, but here we go. Sleeping 4-6 hours is now normal. Without anything but OC drugs to help out. Yeah!!! I also finished the one month on the bicycle officially on Friday. So I am moving on to the Elliptical!!! Also, Hubs went with me to make sure I am using the weights right, and low and behold, he found out real quick why my arms gained muscle so fast. I was only doing 315 reps on just my biceps and triceps. Seems my 24 hours have 4 machines of each exercise of different makers. And yes, I was doing each of those machines… 15 reps x 3 on each machine. I skipped some cause it made me look sideways at them thinking they are the exact thing I was doing… just named slightly different. Hi, my name is Wendy Kittyinaz, and I have Blondes in my family tree, and I married a Polish man. Aforementioned Polish man chuckled, and told me no wonder I was gaining definition on my arms. :Head desk:
I am doing all this because I decided, life is just too short. I want to run again, and to do so I am working towards that goal. I want to feel better, so again, I am working towards it. Only I can change my life, and no one else can do it for me. It takes me an hour-hour and a half to work through it all, and I am proud of myself. I am eating healthier, and I am learning slowly how to do other things. But writing is my main focus, and after I get these lovely stories done, I will be working on my Original Fiction so I can start pushing it out there and see if I can work on getting it published. Well, let me correct that statement. I AM getting it published, just if it will be myself doing it or a publishing company will be the part I am still deciding on.
Also, the writing contest. It is open to anyone who wishes to enter. Sitalia25 asked me for an Angel, and I added Bella per her request. So now Bella is open for anyone to write on now. Just to clarify a question that has been asked many times in the chat, they have to be a character in one of my stories. What you do with them, is up to you. No, they don’t have to BE the character in the story. For instance Mommy4Thomas wrote one for Damon, and she did her own Damon. MissRon80 did her own take on Godric. It is all up to the writers. You just have to use a character from a story. If you have an idea, but don’t see an Angel for it yet, contact me on Facebook, or email the ladies. I will be happy to make one, and you owe me a story. That’s it. For more information, please click on the Bella Banner above. (Remember, you will be consulted on the pic, and the color of the wings and other stuff!)
Now for the fun part!
This weeks person I am going to honor? Kelpie!!!
This woman amazes me constantly. I was first introduced through her interviews on authors I read. I found her, was impressed with the get to know feature on her site. Then there is the Skarsporn Sundays. Such a treat!!! I went through her site, and she also writes!!! I even found a fellow writer who writes kinda like me and has many stories in her head all the time. She and I speak a lot on how stories seem to but themselves into our muses and we are stuck writing down ideas or even chapters.
Then, there was the offer when I mentioned I needed a beta for my Once Upon a Time fic, The Best is yet to Come. She told me she would, and soon had the story being handled. One thing I have learned, don’t ever beta your own work. Though there were two of us working on the fic, there were still errors. It happens. We were far more concerned with the story plot than making sure we followed all the rules. Missron80 tried, but hey.. I rather have the story.
Then there was a difference of opinion, and MissRon80 was no longer working with me. Kelpie stepped forward to work as my co-author on it. Holy cow. We are set to write one chapter a month, and we have stuck with that. But she pushes me all the time for the next chapter. She watches it with me… she instituted Wednesday with Colin pics. Yes. I love Captain Hook! Look, when 4Padfoot was playing around, she made me the pic below. And I found someone who loved him just as much! Not only does she love it, she enables me by sending out (me) pics every Wednesday. I look upon them as my reward for posting .
In addition, we were talking about warning buttons. And she made me some when I fell in love with hers.
Are they not awesome??? LMAO! Now to remember to use them!
She is a busy mother, and she still has the time to write, she encourages me to go to the gym with her own antics (And I have a look alike David Tenant there to drool over…) She brings a quick wit, and has no problems talking over anything. She has helped me with my new role as the interviewer of TB/SVM for the non-canon awards. She makes her own banners, and is willing to jump in and help any of us out on the group.
So.. Thanks Kelpie!! I appreciate you!!!
Hmm here is a surprise. I made one. I had NO idea what I was doing, and somehow I mashed the right buttons and made something. No one was more surprised than me!!! After I did it, 4Padfoot helped me out and showed me some tricks, telling me to play to figure out what I want to do. I have the computer, I have the program, and hopefully I can make some videos for my stories. Hey. I am doing my banners!! Gyllene and 4Padfoot now are not bothered to make the easy stuff anymore. I ask them for the hard stuff now. LMAO!
So here is my first ever video.
It is Damon, Whataya Want From Me. Click and leave me your opinion.
Next up, well I am keeping with the Damon theme, and will put back 4Padfoots tribute to him to inspire me…
I went to look for more and see what I found!
This video is out of the order, but dang it. I LOVE this video!! Absolutely love it!!!
Harry Potter Next Generation. If you go to the video on You Tube, she lists all the actors used. I found it because Andrew Lee Potts. And the scenes with him are from Primeval. LOL!
For those that watched True Blood, here is something to help wash that yucky flavor off your tongue.
Sookie & Eric – I still love him
Then there is this Once Upon a Time that I just clicked to watch as I was finishing up this post, but you are getting it instead.
emma + hook | i’d come for you.
Lastly, I will leave you with another Damon…
Damon Salvatore | Counting Stars
Thanks!!! Enjoy and hopefully I will be seeing you tomorrow!
