Good Days


Today is a good day :)

My office is up and running, and already I have sent a submission sucessfully from there. Today, I actually got to do some writing at last. It's been way too long since I did that. It feels good to be back in the authors seat again, (especially in a spanking new office...lol...)

To make my day just peachy, the wonderful SM Blooding and Crew have nominated my blog for the wonderful and prestigious 'Lemonade Stand Blog award'. Thank you so much Frankie, you're an absolute star! ***heart***

This week I officially opened my office. Yay! I have a real office...at last! This is a major plus for me, because the only access I had to a computer before was in my livingroom. Not good! Have you ever tried to write with the TV blasting out behind you? Ever tried to live in a three bedroom house with eight people ...lol... Not good! It made writing at the computer impossible. It made everything impossible! But that was then, and this is now.

Now I have the coolest office in the world. So, what makes my office cooler than any other? Well, the answer to that is I built it myself. I'm a carpenter by trade. Six or seven years ago I worked on a site building barn conversions and managed to 'acquire' enough materials to build my very own, mini barn conversion in my garden. It's awesome, with a hand built staircase leading up to an open gallery upstairs. It's only small, but it's been crafted to the upmost quality. But the coolest thing about it is, it's now the place where I create my stories, and it will be the place where I get those stories published.

And I did it all myself. That will make the achievement even sweeter.

For anyone interested, here's a picture...
