Wednesday has been a blur. I started the day with a doctor’s appointment for some random, mysterious pains in my abdomen. I’ve been having them for about a month now. Yes, I should have gone to the doctor sooner, but I’m just so tired of doctors. She’s not sure quite sure what it might be. The two leading possibilities are Kidney Stones and scars from my gall bladder surgery interfering with the movement of my intestines. Pleasant, I know. LOL I do have some good news to share. My blood pressure was, for the first time in over a year, a decent number (128/80). I’ve been very tense the past month, so it was a bit of a surprise.
My online presence is still sporadic while I try to reorganize my art and shops (the source of my tension), but you can still follow me for the times when I am sharing articles on writing, books, new art and cat antics. However, I do not auto-follow on Twitter. I don’t even get notices for when someone follows me. So if you do start following, say hi and I will follow back. Unless, you are a spammer. Then I will send my attack cat after you. 😉
Wilder’s Mate – I finished reading the ARC late last night. Oh. My. God. Bree did warn me this was more. . . just more. Review to come on Friday!
I’m also about half way through with Burn Down the Sky and may have a review for it next week.

How to Write Great Fiction – is a great post I found at RedBubble, with videos from amazing authors on writing.
I like your art share Amanda … you seem to be a genius with fractal art! I can and do get lost in your images.
And you must also be a genius reader. I feel like I am positively plodding along compared to you. Right now I am reading the extremely well reviewed ‘Midnight Riot’ by Ben Aaronovitch. At 50 pages in it is a compulsive read. I may review it at Shelf Life. Finished ‘State of Decay’ and while I liked it, it could’ve/maybe should’ve (?) gone a bit deeper in getting to know the characters and wrapping things up at the end … so, no review on that one.
I, too, went to the doctor today … no pain, simply a progress report on some meds I’m taking. It must be disconcerting that your doc doesn’t know what is causing your pain, but congrats on your blood pressure.

Thank you! I do enjoy creating the fractals. They are such a release!
Genius reader? You haven’t met my daughter. LOL 😀
