Magic Eye Friday - an easy one for you...

It's Friday! The weekend is *holds thumb and forefinger close* only that far away! 

On my blog, Friday means another Magic Eye. Now, for all the followers who can't see them very well, this fishy one is a bit easier. You're not actually looking for a hidden image, it's the fish themselves which become 3D. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!!


So, the English weather has declared Autumn (Fall to my American friends) and as much as I've enjoyed the Summer holidays - now they're over, I'm glad to say I've found my writing mojo again! I've completed a short story for a Halloween special on Kindle Users Forum, and I'm itching to get back into the second book in the Soul Protector series. Ideas are flying round my head at the most inconvenient times(!) and I have to keep stopping whatever I'm doing to jot them down.


What made the mojo come back? Is it because I'm back in a routine and exercising again? Or could it be something to do with the kids returning to school this week? The house has become much quieter during the daytime, although I'd kind of got used to working amidst zombie noises on the PS3, my two arguing and ten kids traipsing in for refreshments halfway through a kick-about.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy your writing mojo has returned! I love Fall ... Autumn ... whatever it's called I love it! My favorite season and definitely the time when I'm happiest.

Oh, fish! Lovely!

I'm the complete opposite. I've just gone back to work in a school and I'm still getting into the work/write groove ^^;

But you're so right - autumn is definitely here!

Liz said...

Yay Magic Eye! And I love fall - definitely my favorite season.

Eileen, it is a pretty season (depending where you live.) We say Autumn across the pond, but I used to live in LA for awhile when I was a kid, so still think of it as Fall - which is far more descriptive don'cha think?

Amanda Leigh Cowley said...

Miss Cole - Thanks for the fish love! yes, a bit different when you work in the school - have you picked your routine back up yet?

Amanda Leigh Cowley said...

Liz, glad you're enjoying Fall. I love the seasons right up until mid-Winter, (loses it's magic after Christmas), then I can't wait for Spring!

Hi Amanda. I'm a fellow Fantasy group campaigner, swinging by for a visit. I look forward to reading your book excerpt.

I've always been a big fan of the Magic Eye images. I just scrolled through your blog and checked out the ones you've posted. Pretty cool!

Congrats on getting the mojo back. I'm in the middle of revisions for my first novel, so I'm just praying I don't LOSE it!

Cheers!
