Allie and I woke up early and went bird watching. We got some amazing photos and had a lovely time in the early morning stillness.
I finished my second novel a few weeks ago and am trudging through the editing process. It's really a blessing... and a ton of work. It occupies all my waking thoughts and I am fully immersed in the imaginary plot. I feel I know the characters as if they were my family and friends. I put the final touches on the cover and am pleased that I'm on track for a September release.
The girls were kind enough to take some photos of me for some work I'm doing because I need a headshot. As the person who prefers to be behind the camera, I really appreciate all those people who happily let me take their picture! Posing well is a skill. I tend to shut my eyes, tense my mouth or look plain odd! Here are some outtakes.
Me with my OPENED mouth... not a bad metaphor, but not the look I was going for.
I wish I knew what I was thinking during this shot, but don't I look smug?
