Lightbox obtained

I’m in love!

I got much better pictures for very little extra work. In fact, I don’t think setting this thing up is any more work at all than trying to find a clear, well lit space in a busy kitchen. I had a little extra time today and photographed everything I could get my hands on.

As for the book, it’s been wonderful getting back into writing. I finished the first chapter Sunday and made decent progress on the second last night. I’ve decided to aim for two chapters a week. Deadlines work wonders for me, so I’m feeling optimistic.

Valentines wrap-up

The goblins have been successfully distributed.

Somewhere between two and three dozen cakes have been decorated.

(A light box has been purchased to improve the quality of future cake photos.)

Time to work on the book now. I’ve got a number of writing projects going, and am always picking at them here and there, but I tend to keep just one on the front burner. This story’s been kicking around since 2014. One of those with a few false starts under its belt. I think it’s the right time to give it another try, and I love what little I’ve written so far. My goal is to have a good manuscript ready by the end of June.

Better get back to it.
