#WeCreate NaNoWriMo Update and Ponies Galore!

Frankie Av

Hello everyone!

I completed my fifty-thousand word goal for NaNoWriMo a few days ago. I’m continuing to write as Emergence isn’t quite finished yet, but I am very happy with my progress.


The injury to my hand appeared to get better with the heat and splinting. I felt it was in a good way so I took off my splint day before yesterday and managed to worsen the healing injury. As a result, typing is slower than usual! I’m finding even the most tiny of things difficult as the hand is such a complex joint, and you forget how much you use your hands–even your non-dominant one! But, I’m getting there!


I’ve received most of the My Little Ponies for my collection which I ordered this past week and a half. Very pleased with all of them, and even included a few G2 and Equestria type, even though they are not my favourites. In fact, I’d go so far as to say I hate Equestria and think G2 ponies are ugly, but they came in a couple of bundles so I have them as part of a more fuller collection. (Though, I am getting to like the G2 a little XD) I’ve lost count of how many I have in my collection. It was over 700 last year, but I sold some so I need to do a recount of all the ponies. I bought the little houses and castles and nursery for display purposes. I have been collecting these for years and don’t have a single pony on display!


As for drawing, I haven’t even attempted to draw a thing for a few weeks. I did buy a My Little Pony adult colouring in book, purely as a part of the collection you understand….and I coloured some of that in while I was unable to type! Colouring in is almost as relaxing as sticking stickers into my sticker albums XD


My attempt at colouring in! I think I need better pens XD

That’s it for now! I hope you are all well and enjoying the weekend! I’m away to write for a while 😀 Bye for now!

Write for Yourself!


In this video, I discuss how I’m finally, finally, finally back to being myself again, and why it’s AWESOME.

Also, I talk about how knowing your characters turns writing into a piece of cake!!!

Oh, and an update about my wrists! Spoiler alert: I get to keep writing.

Less Talk, More Writing. Back on the Wagon!



Physical Therapy


LET THE RECORD SHOW: When I am wrong, I will admit it.

So, the doctor says…



Friends made me promise to cease writing and go to the doctor to make sure my wrists were not at risk for some permanent damage. So, because I am a good, obedient girl I did as I was told and went (also, it should be noted that my husband does passably well as a fussy spouse strong-arming me into doing things I don’t want to do, like saying yes to the anti-inflammatory shot).

I’m off for the weekend, so beg Frankie for a video and say a prayer (if you do that) or send happy thoughts my way that my wrists may improve despite needing them to slay demons over the weekend.

OH, and BIG NEWS on the job front! ^_^

I haven’t updated in a while because my wrists will not let me.
