The leaves are turning colors and falling, and it is beginning to have the odd night where it dips into the frost zone. Sooooo, I had them install a new furnace so I don’t freeze my digits. These things are important. Snoop is grateful, he doesn’t have to hide under the feather blanket anymore, he can sit in front of the register where the warm air can blow over him and give him earaches. He doesn’t care at this point, but when he is having issues he will let me know.
The new furnace isn’t perfect, something isn’t right… almost melted. Thermostat is set for 21, and it hadn’t quit at 28C. Can anyone spell sauna? When I shut off the heat mechanism the fan wouldn’t quit running, though that isn’t on either… sigh… someone goofed up somewhere and I am not taking the blame. So there.
Finished the rough copy of ‘Growing Pains’ yesterday.. . still might rename that, though in some ways it is appropriate. Those Elven children sure have their parents tied in knots. I won’t mention what they are doing to poor Daroth. He might be able to rule a nation, but he is at a total loss how to handle a generation of powerful Elven children. They love him, as long as he doesn’t cross the line.
Well, going to be a busy day here again. Have people coming, going to finish another chapter on ‘Luthien’s Song’ … got half of it done yesterday. Hadn’t planned on that. I have a feeling about that short story…. uhmmmm… maybe novelette… dare I say the word… novel? There is so much information running through my mind and I want to release ‘King’s Daughter’ first. Good thing I have a winter and a summer to separate now from the release time somewhere next fall… haven’t set a time there yet. I could be releasing two Elven Chronicle novels back to back… Do you think people would like that? Will see what happens, the books haven’t been written yet so it is early days.
Well, I guess it is time I got off my assets, did some dishes… and prepared for what is to come later today. Wish me luck and good writing. With luck we should have ‘Theory In Depth’ and ‘Embracing the Light’ formatted by the end of the day. Then I will pass on ‘Return of the Legend’ to Morganna for editing. Still plan of taking a small brake and doing more reading, that month and a half I had planned on only lasted for a week and the pile of books I had planned on reading is still half there.
Until next week I am off and running, pen in hand… going to have to get another, this one won’t last out the day… another pen bit the dust.
