Let the typing begin

That is what I told myself at the beginning of the week, and to be fair, I have almost caught up to where I am writing. AddEmoticons04231 I am over my expected word count in ‘Kings of the Empire’, no surprise there. AddEmoticons04263 I still have 3 chapters to type out and I am running in excess of 106000 (closer to 107,000) words. dog5 I still have to write out several chapters.  I am not sure where this will end yet, as the moment I tie one loose end up, two more pop up. AddEmoticons04268  I will tame the octopus yet.AddEmoticons04212

My nocturnal duo has made their objections known in no uncertain terms. cat 32 That is not to say that they are not allowing me to do the typing, just not writing or sleeping much. cat 39 They are unsettled in the night, and want to be held the moment I walk away from the computer. cat 26 While I type, they sit on a chair and watch, side by side, black and white faces directed towards me, with their blue eyes focused on me with an intense look..cat 3. we are casting a spell, you will be finished, or you will not sleep.cat 53 10-16-27  We demand, we deserve.cat 44  And one of them has learned respect for the flyswatter. cat 50 (She has to start fearing something.) dd27 The sound of that swatter striking the table gets her off the kitchen counter pronto. addemoticons00954 22-31-47 Speak about feeling empowered! smiley-happy120 Tath sits on the chair and watches her, he knows that as long as he isn’t on that counter he is safe. cat 28 unless he is trying to sharpen his claws on the chair, then his butt is grass and I am the lawnmower.cat 36

The pb arcs for ‘Into the Demons Lair’ came in, and they are gorgeous..clicking-your-heels-smiley-emoticon. doing Snoopy dance here.  Becca, along with the few others who have seen them, told me it was so, but now I know for sure as well. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon In the meantime, ‘To Capture an Ancient’ is posed to enter the last stages of edits. AddEmoticons04267 Sarah will get them the moment she returns the one she has, which should be any time now. Smiley-Begging I don’t believe it should take her long to do go through ‘TCAA’ and then we will see which one we will send her after. AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09 The choices from the backlog to fix are getting smaller, which makes us all want to celebrate. AddEmoticons04262 They all looking forward to going through ‘Kings of the Empire’, which will go into first stage edits sometime in May. AddEmoticons04274 I had planned on taking that whole month off from writing, but I will be happy to get what I can. AddEmoticons04279 I will then either go into ‘Lost Kingdoms of the Empire’, because it is a short, or Intercession, because it releases right after KOTE.AddEmoticons04258  And already the kittens are giving me that look.MSN-Emoticon-155

To be fair to the little toads, they are not jumping on top of the china cabinet anymore, not since Thena jumped, and missed. cat 54 That is a long way down for a skinny looking pussycat. cat 47 Very had on the bones when you land on hardwood… she has put in a request for carpeting in the living room.cat 26  Hot happening cat, I like my maple floor. CatSmiley11 I could just see the two of them using the carpet for a scratching pad.  Sigh.cat 53

Well, it is time to hit the keyboard again, the jet propelled duo is tearing up the racetrack here, and may or not, spend their time resting after this. addemoticons00954 22-31-47 They spent a restless night and need a catnap.cat 10  Monday I will get the mail off, which got partially forgotten on a chair here. AddEmoticons04267 10-25-02 It is time to get this done, and next week looks like the time to do it. AddEmoticons04259 10-25-09 With that in mind, I will report on progress at that time. smiley-happy120 Perhaps I will have good news to relay to you, and the last of the books on the Elven Chronicles will have quit growing. AddEmoticons04264 I can then concentrate on the next two phases of the story. super-happy-dance-smiley-emoticon As ever, stay healthy, and until next week… have a good one. cat 36 AddEmoticons04225 10-09-00
