Jalousied (n): 1.a blind or shutter made with horizontal slats that can be adjusted to admit light and air but exclude rain and the rays of the sun.

I had a very busy week writing. I've been working on my dystopian fiction and it's coming along better and better every day. I'm happy and excited. If all goes well I should have it done in the next two weeks, put it aside, then revisit mid-april for revisions.. Temporarily I'm planning its release for this fall. May, it goes to my editor.

Next week will be just as busy. We have a birthday in the family to celebrate and I need to continue writing.  Lately, it's the only thing that keeps me sane. My own time. My imagination. My characters. My writing. My precious.

I feel like this is me and the ring is the writing.

My other writing included composing 13/26 posts for the A-Z Challenge. So, halfway through. Phew! I'm hoping to have most of them done by the time April arrives.

This week I also joined Pinterest. Still trying to find my bearings, but it's very neat because you can post on the board things that interest you most, from fashion, to cooking, to books. I'm still figuring out the pinning part and how to use it best, but the concept really intrigues me.

You join by invite only, but if you send them an email, it takes only a couple of days for the invite to come through.

So far I've posted my books and the link takes you directly to amazon. You can basically pin anything that you like from the web because the source is automatically referenced by a direct link. Very convenient.

You can embed the item to your blog to look like this:

Have a great weekend everyone! Have you joined the A-Z Challenge yet? Over 1000 people have and we're waiting for you! What's been precious for you this week?

Interesting use for Pinterest.
And hope you don't turn into Gollum!

I'm still not sure about Pinterest. I'm getting bogged down with all these new things that keep popping up. I don't need any more distractions :-)

I haven't given in to Pinterest yet. I'm addicted to too many things already! But dude, this is tempting, lol.

Keep up the awesome work on your wip! You are an inspiration to get my butt in gear, lol.
