welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-lover, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

total randomness

here i am again, doling out the random thoughts that flit through my head because i want to write **something**, just not my work in progress at the moment.

♦ i like playing with the symbols in Character Map - can you tell?

♦ i don't like planning war strategy, which is why i'm putting off writing Blackheart. i'm at the point where i have to figure out where several groups are and it's giving me a headache.

♦ yesterday i told my 16 y.o. son (the one who's helping me write the bad guy scenes in Blackheart) that my novel is like a 2 year old, clamoring for attention, but i'm the one having tantrums over it. his response (in his best macabre voice): "It's trying to kill you." touche.

♦ Mary Connealy's Wildflower Bride (book 3 in the Montana Marriages series) is available on Amazon, a week early from its bookstore release date. i've already ordered my copy. waiting that extra week was just too much.

♦ my mind has been captured by another story idea. i think that makes over 20 stories i want to tell. when am i ever going to have the time to write them all and still get my novel finished? gurr. does this happen to you?

♦ i've started yet another blog, but it's not ready for public viewing yet. i'll let you know when it's up.

♦ suddenly my mind is blank. guess that's all for today.
