It Is Done – Lillian Darnell Gets an Identification Card

October 14 2019:

She survived getting an ID! Extreme anxiety and pissed offness having to go do this (on Lillian’s part). You can tell she was nervous in the second photo and had calmed down by the 1st photo. She does not like these new rules that come with turning 18. We were only there about an hour. Plus, she registered to vote too! Whew! It is done now. 🎉🎉🎉🎉 Next up. Getting fingerprinted for her library volunteering …. More extreme anxiety over that one!

Thank you to the lovely DMV worker who graciously overlooked that I had made the appointment for the 15th. (And did not make me get in the “no appointment” line!) Today is not the 15th! I’m losing my mind!!

Words of Alchemy – The Indie Showcase

October 13 2019:

Thank you to Richard for the feature on his Indie Showcase! I share a bit about the writing process in this post … I hope you check it out. It’s a pretty quick read. It would be great if you have time to “like” the post, or share it, or comment on it. Thank you! (The post has been viewed over 2,500 times since it was published last week – WOW!)

“One genre I never gave much attention was that of poetry. Much of it left me dazed and confused! I never in my wildest dreams could have known that one day in 2013, poetic words would begin to populate my mind and demand to be set free. So began a 6-year streak of writing poetry inspired by my near-daily walks, by nature and by my life experiences ….”

The Indie Showcase presents, Camilla Downs

 

Proofreading and Submitting the Kindle Version with a Toast – Words of Alchemy

October 10 2019:

About to begin round 7 of reading the entire book out loud – from the title page, copyright page, through to the about the author page (for proofreading purposes). Whew! Fingers and toes crossed that this is the last time so I can get it to the book designer tomorrow!

October 12 2019:

Done!! Just submitted ‘Words of Alchemy’ to the book designer! Should be able to order a proof book in about 2 weeks. In celebration I created a word art image with content from the book’s website page. Thanks for the support and interest in pre-ordering!

Thomas and I toasted to me submitting the manuscript to the book designer!! Pumpkin pie spiced ginger ale … (non-alcoholic).

Magical Animated Book Cover – Words of Alchemy

October 4 2019:

This is just magical. Truly love it! Animated book cover!

In Words of Alchemy, Camilla Downs invites you to walk with her to share her love of Nature through a heartfelt free-verse poetry memoir.

During her daily strolls she is mindfully present as she delves into life in the raw and experiences her heart’s observations.

Camilla embraces what happens when she opens her heart and invites the written words to flow. The Alchemy of Love and Healing is what happens.

“These poems take you on a calm and loving walk through the verses of the author’s thoughts. Alchemy is a perfect word for the title as Camilla Downs understands nature; connecting with its magical, medicinal qualities and beauty which she conveys throughout her poetry.” – Ailsa Craig, Author of The Sand Between My Toes

Throwback Post – Character is Happy and Has An Ability of Yelling

**THROWBACK POST**

May 21 2015

Thomas completed an application for employment yesterday. His character is happy, personality is good, and he has an ability of yelling.

Yes, yes. He is indeed a very loud young man. I think I’ll hire him. I’m sure I can find something for a loud, happy, glad young man to do.

Lillian Wants to Know – Who Made This Rule

October 4 2019:

She’s a bit overwhelmed with having to sign documents so soon after turning 18. She would like to know who made this rule!!!

It’s taking so long for construction to be finished on the new apartments, she turned 18 while waiting. So …. had to sign the application! Anyone know of a short term place we could rent for the month of November? Our lease here ended the end of August, management let us stay at our old lease rate for September. Had to pay a month to month rate for this month and can’t do that again! 😱 I’m serious if any of my Reno friends have thoughts. Move in just got bumped again to early November at the new place. With their record, I doubt it will be ready.
