Review, Voting, Discovery, and Research

Hello Lovelies!

Today I relished the opportunity to sleep in. I wrote until about 2am after watching a little Lucifer and listening to Talk of the Tavern. 
Today I had a slow start. I finally had an opportunity to rent Mr. Holmes (for FREE) starring Ian McKellen from the library. If you’re any kind of Sherlock fan or fan of mysteries, I highly encourage giving this delightful indie film a try.

After some writing and basic puttering, it was off to vote and research at the Central Branch location of the St. Louis Public Library.

First I voted:


Then onto the history section and special collections. The Library is an incredible historic building and the turned leaves only made it more stunning. These pictures are from inside: 

On the way to the special collections, I had to stop and take pictures of the colorful and intricate stained glass and stairwell lamps:


As I started my research I stumbled onto the STL250 Cake Book and found my cake sculpture! It was a pleasant surprise to discover this book and see my piece in print:

Onto research:


And lastly, a few more shots of the fabulous staircases that come down to the main hall:


NaNoWriMo update: 12,975 words. I’m on fire…and my neck hurts, lol.


And as always, thank you for reading,
Victoria

5th of Nov and NaNoWriMo

Hello Lovelies!

Twelve years ago today, my mother passed away after a long battle with MS. Her death reminds me to keep living my dreams and her words “everything is going to be okay”.

I’m planning, working hard to get everything in place for a great 2018.

So this year I’m participating in NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month). It’s a challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in November. 

I’m already near 10,000 for NaNoWriMo. Expect great things next spring. 🙂

Many, many thanks to those who downloaded copies of The First Ten Bites! I look forward to your reviews and comments. Here’s the current rank on Amazon:


And as always, thank you for reading,

Victoria
