I should have my character profiles completed a long time ago. Unfortunately, I am still working on them. My outline is only two-thirds done which also should have been completed this week.

All week has been a struggle to get anything done between the hubby, an Amazon parrot, and 5-month-old collie. The hubby is constantly grumpy, the collie is either knawing on me, biting me on the thighs or laying on my work. The parrot has been irritable and squawky (noisy) which makes the hubby grumpier, to the point I could scream.

Of course, the New Moon is tomorrow. That has a lot to do with it. I used to work in a nursing home and the cycle of the moon effects everything....believe me! I've seen it over and over again. It was extremely obvious in the nursing home.
Trying to get my character profiles done is grueling. Frown I have all but 5 done out of 20 and then I STILL have to go back over every one of them to double check all of the information and fill in the blanks..
Try to focus on how much it will help with consistency and focus.

You're building a team, in order to play the long game.

I'm taking a short break on the character profiles and decided to work on the outline a little bit. Then I will go back to the character profiles.
I've added a new item to my portfolio:
 Clothesline Etiquette  (E)
What is clothesline etiquette anyway?
Looking for plot formulas and how to make the most out of them.
I have been working on a novel that has been sitting for awhile. I am not sure how to restart it. I am at a brick wall! I have the characters and the basic plot in line. The plot is bits and pieces. I have a beginning and an ending but the middle is the problem as well as getting back into it. Any advice or suggestions?

So to request a review you need to use 1,000 points?
The lowest amount that it can be set to is 900.

It’s that or you can post a link to your item here and ask people to do it out of the kindness of their hearts.

You can also put items on the Plug Page for people to find.
I think what you are looking at is the auto rewards addon feature. Yes that costs GPs that are paid out to reviewers. It is not required. "Auto-Rewards.

These are two of the many free ways to get reviews. "Please Review and "The Shameless "Plug" Page

I was just notified that I got the puppy I wanted. He is 3 weeks old right now. I will be bringing him home around the first of May. They are currently calling him Mark. His name is going to be Sir Laddie. He is a sable and white rough collie. (I have OCD, Obsessive Collie Disorder--LOL) I am so excited I don't know if I am going to be able to sleep tonight.
Once something is posted is it possible to edit what was posted? I have posted a short story I would like to make changes in but don't know how.
No problem. Open your item, then look for a gear shaped icon on the top right of the page. Click that and one of the options is "edit".

Trying to figure this place out still. Went to the newbie feed which is set up good but clicking on the links brings up another confusing page and I don't know where to go from there. Lost. Frustrated. How am I supposed to exit and save this post?
