Editing plan that might actually kind of help...



Okay, if you're anything like me you'd rather jump out of a burning building onto broken glass than edit your book. You see, we put our blood, sweat, tears and sometimes sanity into the words we put down on the page, and the thought of going through those labor intensive pages brings on the urge to projectile vomit...at least for me anyways.
Here are just a few tips that kind of help me whether the editing storm.

Writing tips that kind of actually work...



At times I can suffer from some massive writer's block. It strikes without warning and sometimes in the worst possible moments. It's frustratingly just part of being a writer. However, there are a few things that can help push past writer's block. I have a whole list of practices I engage in. I plan on sharing those in another post. Today I just wanted to post this little helpful list that I found awhile ago and really does help get shit done. If you're struggling to finish that book and it's become a sort of Herculean task I highly recommend following at least the first three bullet points Chuck Wendig suggests.
*Write five days a week
*Write 350 words a day
*Write 260 days per year

It has helped me, especially the 350 words per day. It helps me keep trudging even when it seems like I have nowhere to go. I tell myself, "Hey, if I can write 350 words per day eventually those words are going to add up and I'm going to have a finished novel in from me."

HALLOWEEN Month - Cute Zombie Tattoos

Last year I did a post about Zombie Tattoos because I love zombies and I love tattoos. So I decided to do another Zombie Tattoo post this year, but this time I'm focusing on the cute adorable zombies tattoos - the ones in a moment of inebriated weakness I might actually have permanently inked on my body.
So here are some of the cutest zombies ya ever did see -

Marie Antoinette zombie...classy yet horrifying

Zombie Cupcakes will always be one of my favorites.

My Little Pony Zombies are freaking adorable.

Snow White zombie. I like that this one isn't afraid to go a little more creepy than cute.

Disney's Belle zombie - with Chip! I love it.

Another My Little Pony Zombie. The colors mixed with the fact that she's truly freaky
made me fall in love with this tat.

Hello Kitty Zombie. The intestine coming out is just that added bit of gross-out that got
her added to my list.

This will ALWAYS be one of my favorites. ALWAYS.

Pooh Bear Tattoo. The little Brainz Hunny pot is a cute addition.

Adorable little bird zombie. Love the worm coming out of the
abdomen.

HALLOWEEN Month - Costumes for the lazy

Say you're just way too busy working or taking care of your kids costumes to properly come up with one for yourself. Besides, sometimes you're just not in the mood to push through the throng of glitter and fake Samurai sword wielding shoppers at your local Party City...and don't even start with Saver or your Goodwill stores...they're even worse. Like I've said, I LOVE to dress up, but being a wee bit lazy has its perks, especially when there are some other incredible options. Options in the form a single piece...or a onesie. I go crazy for a good ONESIE. They're comfy, warm in the winter months (not that it ever gets too cold in AZ) and some of them are downright adorably awesome. Here's a few you can button or zip up Halloween night, head out to a party or take your kids trick 'r' treating.

We all know how much I love Unicorns...

Who doesn't love Alice in Wonderland...

Adorable Ladybug...

Despicable Me Minion...yes please...

Monster's Inc...Sully Onesie


Go find the one that's right for you and have a snuggly no-pressure to put together an elaborate costume Halloween.

HALLOWEEN Month - Nail Art

Hey y'all, I wanted to do a super quick post that still celebrated my love for Halloween, so I thought why not post some ideas for how to dress up your nails on Halloween. I love manicures, particularly because it means I don't have to do any work, but I'm sure you can also do some of these by yourself.
So here are some ideas...enjoy...and try not to breath in too many fumes while attempting these -

HALLOWEEN Month - Costume a day - Feeling Horny - Be a Unicorn

Seriously...who doesn't want to be a Unicorn? I mean, seriously? They're fabulous. They're surrounded by glitter. And according to Supernatural they can shoot rainbows out of their ass.
So here's just a few ideas on how to make yourself a the most fab magical creature for Halloween -

You ain't a Unicorn without an actual horn 'duh'. This gal makes the most
delicate incredible horns I've seen yet. You can find them on her Etsy shop here -

An awesome wig. Whether you're thinking white, rainbow, or some other
color mash-up, a good wig makes a difference. I ADORE dressing up
and have gotten a lot of my wigs from this site. They have a nice assortment and aren't
crazy expensive -

A rainbow or white tutu is a great idea to add over white 
tights or a white leotard. This lovely lady makes tutus in sizes
baby - adult. You can find her shop here:

Furry boot covers. Can you use them more than once?
If you're AWESOME then hell yassss -

A second horn never hurt anyone. Find these bright
gems here - 

And in honor of Supernatural...you can shoot a rainbow out of your ass
