Oy, now what do I do?

AddEmoticons04262Yes, it is true, the rough draft of ‘Luthien Story’ is done. 1317309lsk5aj07xu I even set up a contest for people to guess at the word count of it on the event page that was, my FB page, etc., even am about to offer a prize of an arc of ‘Guardians of the Future’.  xmas-drummer-smiley-emoticon The younger generation is growing up, like a bunch of weeds.  Their parents will trim them into line.  AddEmoticons04263 Snicker.  Yes, I am somewhat stoked, but more lost than anything. AddEmoticons04274  I promised myself a break, but am fighting to settle down. AddEmoticons04259  Of course you know what that means.  Yup, working at the first edit and rewording where I think it is needed.  AddEmoticons04267 The books I want to read when I get this done aren’t going anywhere.  (and yes, maybe I can settle down when this is done.) AddEmoticons04220

We are still freezing our assets off here, but they are promising the weather will break a week from Monday…  AddEmoticons04259 No, they didn’t say who or what it would break. AddEmoticons04279  I would say it could be worse, and remembering the temperatures at the end of December it could be, but as it is only a couple degrees warmer it isn’t by much.  AddEmoticons04274 Making sure I don’t go anywhere close to anything steel that has been outside for any length of time or I will look like that little boy on ‘Christmas Story’ who had his tongue frozen to the flag pole. AddEmoticons04263 Yes, sigh, it is still that cold here.  Looking up and calling “S-p-r-i-n-g” Blast but I need something more than a good furnace to keep me warm. AddEmoticons04264

Yes, I know… Snoop. cat 36 And he is sitting beside me purring and tossing me kitty kisses and hugs. cat 26 He has eaten, his stomach is full, it is time to lay down for a nap. cat 10 No, not with mama… don’t bite me. CatSmiley11 Oops, forgot, he last his teeth, don’t gum me. addemoticons00954 22-31-47  Ouch, was that a claw? addemoticons00932 22-11-37  Seriously, his wants are simple… nap or else. AddEmoticons00949  He is an equal opportunity kitty… cat 42 he would like to be given the same time I give my manuscripts, nights don’t count. cat 28  Those belong to him anyway.  cat 44

This week is going to be easy, AddEmoticons04258 first edit, formatting, and getting the cover of ‘My Darling, Janice’ underway.  AddEmoticons04267 That manuscript is leaving for last edit today.  Hoping to have it back for the end of April. AddEmoticons04262 I am good with it if I get it before. AddEmoticons04267 The sooner that is done the quicker I can move on with the following edits of ‘King’s Daughter’. AddEmoticons04258 This year’s story are moving fast towards completion… boogidy, boogidy… and in a month or so from now I will get down to writing ‘First Contact’  (I already have the name for book two of the Tantalus series.  ‘Integration’.  Yes, I have the story line for that one too. AddEmoticons04263

Well, this has gone on long enough, time to give a little furry body some of what he is looking for. CatSmiley21  Following his lead.  cat 53 10-16-27  Until next week… we will continue to freeze and hope for the world to begin to thaw. AddEmoticons04268 sad-face


Have a good week, and may you be warmer than we are.  AddEmoticons04257

    Enjoyed it immensely. I was doing good reading and then got distracted. Can’t wait to see the cover for MDJ. I am anxious to read the first in the new series. Wish some of your weather would come our way without being that cold though. LOL
