A Reminder, a Contest, and a Puzzle! There’s no excuse for being bored!!!
Saturday, April 11th, 2020

UPDATE: The winner is Mary McCoy!

Repeat: There’s no excuse for being bored!

When the kids get mopey, my daughter gives them chores. After she kept doing that, my granddaughter asked for a large canvas and some acrylic paint. My dd had the kids dress up twice now for fun “photo shoots” outside. There’s plenty to do other than watch Tiger King. You just have to find something that inspires you.

Okay, so I’m luckier than most. I get to be creative every day. It’s kind of my job. But when writing becomes work, I turn to paint and pens. When it started to look like this crazy lockdown would be a longterm thing for me, I looked around for something I could do that would keep me busy, so I joined the #100dayproject art challenge. Which is why I’m driving people on my Friends page in Facebook nuts with pictures of what I’m creating—the cool and the really, really bad. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, tell me what new challenge you will undertake if this thing goes on forever for you, too. Will you learn to paint? Take up writing poems? Dust off your camera?

Also, just a quick reminder here, folks…

One Hot Night

New Orleans Nights: One Hot Night releases on Tuesday!! It’s FREE in Kindle Unlimited. It’s a fun, very fast-paced, and sexy story! Promise! You won’t be bored! Here’s what it’s about and where you can get it.

Hot Sultry Nights, Hot-Blooded Heroes…

Part of the private security team hired to keep visiting international dignitaries safe, New Orleans detective, Remy Cyr, has several interesting run-ins with a certain local reporter hellbent on crashing the convention’s nighttime events. While she’s certainly a nuisance, sneaking inside in a variety of disguises, he can’t help admiring how resourceful and stubborn she is. As sexy as she is pretty, he soon can’t resist her attraction.

A socialite determined to earn her own way in the world, reporter Stacia Rice is determined to dig up dirt at the convention, anything to earn her a spot on her newspaper’s front page. But one handsome, dogged cop keeps getting in her way. When they find themselves alone, neither can resist the intensity of their instant attraction.

When a group of armed men invades the venue and takes the dignitaries hostage, Remy realizes that he and Stacia are the only ones who know, and the only ones who can save them…

    4:11 for me!

    Jennifer! That’s not a small dream, unfortunately. Here’s hoping you find something that “fills your well” while you’re on lockdown.

    2:42 What a fun puzzle with an awesome message. I am dabbling in design. Something I play with occasionally. Very occasionally. But I am playing again. Yes, for me it is playing. It’s fun and I create some wonderful things. Right now it is summer tops, so it is useful too.

    I’m working on slowly decluttering the house, which isn’t terribly fun, but a good thing nonetheless. For fun, I’m playing with my sister’s sewing machine ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks for the puzzle! 2:36 <3

    We are now exercising every day by doing videos off of YouTube and now the pool is open so we will be adding in swimming laps everyday before we just play around in the pool.
