What Jude's up to:

It's been a fantastic month! *Very big grin here* I'm writing again, almost smoothly after months of struggling to get anything done. Having said that, I can tell you all I've finally, only 2 months late, sent in the first in my (hopefully) new series called Daybreak 2525. I won't know until the end of August if Doc is accepted or not, but I do know Claire was looking forward to the genre of series I had planned. So, cross your fingers everyone!

It just feels sooo darned good to sit down and not feel an empty terror when I look at a blank page. Whether the book is accepted or not, I know I can either create something else, or do whatever fixes needed to make it a good fit for that publishing house.

Now I'm onto the next one. Actually, Jenna Byrnes and I are onto our next one in the Kindred Spirits Series, tentatively called Dylan's Dilemma. As is our usual practice, I begin the book and Jenna does the ending, so the first bit is done. Jenna now has it in her capable hands and I'm looking at the next in my 2525 series. I'm also thinking it's been much too long since I wrote a femdom story so want to dive into something in that genre soon. I tell you, it's like I've been sleeping and have just woke up with a brilliant idea or two, or three. Speaking of numbers, I hear Jenna has a half dozen ideas flashing around inside her head. The poor dear!

On to personal bits. I've just gotten back from seeing my specialist and things are really looking up. I've lost some weight, and am totally thrilled about that, and it seems that along with the meds I've been taking, have done the trick. The swollen optic nerve is not as swollen, so I may be on my way back to whatever normal is. I really do feel so much better. I think I was so used to feeling unwell that I just accepted it as how I was going to be. I'm grateful that's not the case.

Animals: All are doing well and I've got a doe who's come close enough for me to hand feed. She appeared one afternoon looking like she'd been hit by a car. She had bumps and gouges, some fur missing off her back, a rather large sore on her leg and a terrified look in her eyes. The others picked on her. That's the way of nature. She was injured, they need the extra food to make it through the winter.

Anyway, I tried to keep an eye on her to see if she really was badly hurt. She didn't limp or favor any particular leg or have difficulty eating, she just needed a little extra help. I took to sitting out with her when she came. That was enough to keep the others away for just a little while so she could eat. I progressed to making sure she had a bit of apple. And of course, that progressed to coaxing her in to take it from my hand. A few days later, she brought her fawn. I was nearly in tears. What a wonderful surprise. She's still the low man on the totem pole, but I make sure she gets enough, her and her fawn. She'll make it over the winter for sure. I'll do my best to see to that. She's still missing some fur, a patch on her back so I'll be able to identify her when her coat turns.

And that's it. If you'd like to see the rest, you've got a couple of choices. You can join my yahoo group and chat a little as well as receive this and more every month. Or, you can sign up to my mailing list. Both links are below.
