Lots of interesting stuff is going on.


HeartLA has its monthly meeting today. It’s always fun to get together with other writers. We have a couple of members who are “characters” and one was in fine form today, which made for an interesting meeting, but otherwise, it was great.

We had several visitors, which is always gratifying. When I was president, it was my goal to raise awareness of our group and it looks like it’s still working. Today a couple of them mentioned their story ideas and they spurred my imagination.

Today’s “workshop” was on goal setting, done by my friend Rhonda and now I’m psyched about working harder to get Sword & Illusion finished. I’m still struggling with one of the early chapters that will have repercussions throughout the book. So, I really need to make sure it’s right.


Not much to say here. Beloved was sick a little this week and I was kind of afraid I was getting it, but possibly not. We’ll have to wait and see.

The Girl got an industrial piercing in her ear and I’m not totally thrilled with that but she is 19 so basically, whatever!!

The Boy has had some bad days in school. I’m not sure if he’s past it or not, but we’ll see next week.


I saw a layout someone made with my Mardi Gras 2009 kit:

Kayla's Layout

You can find this kit at any of the stores listed on the sidebar.

I also found out today I’ve made my first sales at two of the stores, so that’s pretty exciting.

I’m still trying to figure this whole thing out, but I’m still having fun.


I’ve given up hitting the snooze and I’ve done pretty well, but I can tell you it’s taking its toll on me. I think that’s why tonight I feel so tired and almost like I might be getting sick. We’ll see. I didn’t go to Adoration last night because I’m getting up at 5:45 am every morning and had the HeartLA meeting today so being up until 1 am just didn’t sound healthy.

Well, I’m off to worry about my characters and try to get another kit finished. Talk to you all later.
