Murphy must love me because that law keeps messing with my life.
Yes it has been one of THOSE weeks.
It started off great (long weekend, how can you miss, right?)
Don’t misunderstand. The weekend went great.
Got lots of writing done.
Got some reading done, yes I know, shocker.
Then Tuesday came. Tuesday, after a long weekend is a MONDAY, with the added bonus of having Murphy been given extra time to think of extras to add to the day.
Anyway enough said on that. Tuesday came and we start off with a bang… TID is finished off in record time.
Followed by the formatting for the Short Story books, followed by one crisis after another, followed by an S.O.S. from Becca that ended with me sending one out to Eniko… When in trouble, call in the cavalry.
By the end of the day the trouble hasn’t got away, but Becca has the book interiors done.
Then there is the covers. At this time I believe Eniko has two done and Becca has the backs of two to either finish or add or whatever… you get the idea.
It is supposed to finish coming together this evening.
(and if it works it will be Elves 5 – Murphy zip) Does anyone believe this? Sigh. Me either, but we can dream.
Snoop has watched and listened to all of this with interest.
He isn’t very enthusiastic about going outside anymore, he knows what is coming and when he goes out the North wind lets him know it is only a matter of time.
He hates it when it whispers in his ears. Flicks his tail at the great outdoors when he comes back into the house and gives it dirty looks. I have told him he is getting to be a grouchy old pussycat.
He knows who to try to butter up.
Neither of us can do a thing about the weather, but it is his bed I sleep in and he likes cuddles.
Heading back to the books, things are going smoothly… ‘King’s Daughter’ is around 15% done… ‘Lúthien’s Song’ is around 18% done… ‘Living in the Light’ is 33% done. Eniko is slowly working her way through the first edits of ‘My Darling, Janice’ Morganna is almost finished the second edit of ‘Guardians of the Future’.
Now to settle down to one or the other. Or maybe they will all come together. Then my editing staff won’t come to me and say… almost finished with this one… when is the next one coming? (Sound familiar?)
In case you are wondering what happened to last Saturday’s blog, so am I.
The blog went up, the notices went out … it looked great with all those dancing turkey’s.
Then it disappeared… poof. So not fair.
Until next week… all I can do is hope this stays were I put it…
and keep …
Have a good week and get ready for Halloween.
