Have you ever thought about what it would be like to live in a world that existed within the one we live in. One where the people who existed within it looked like us, yet whose minds operated on a different level? I am finding it an interesting concept. But that is not what this is so called blog is supposed to be all about, right? Here, I am supposed to be telling you about any advancement I have made in the storyline I am working on… and those others are working on for me. Right?
Sarah didn’t get her copy of ‘Merika’s Story’ finished, but says next week… work is getting in the way, which it has a way of doing. Candy got her work done, and I promptly renamed the story she had been working on. It is no longer ‘Lost Kingdoms of the Empire’, I call it ‘Rising from the Ashes’. It is how the Elves are beginning to rebuild their worlds after the Demon wars ended. Eniko says she isn’t too far off from finishing ‘The Phoenixes Choice’. I am beginning to get more serious about writing ‘The Goddess’. I now am in the middle of Chapter XII, but will have to begin typing, or I am going to be sorry I didn’t later. I have approximately 7 chapters to type out now, and that is not a good thing.
The bratz, true to their characters, have begun to wake with the sun, and decide that I should too. Thena is bringing me her pompoms to throw. (She likes to play fetch in the early hours.) Tath, well, he is Tath… hiding when someone new comes that he isn’t certain of, panicking when my one sister in law or her daughter comes… they are the claw clippers. There is nothing more that those two cats hate than having their claws shortened. I am seeing the reason for this. My kitchen chairs are definitely looking worse for wear, and it is not my nails that are catching on those threads. Something tells me the flyswatter is about to get taken out of storage. Trouble is, they are doing this in the middle of the night… mama has to sleep sometime, right? The little sneaks are always where they belong when I wake up, in bed, under the cover, because I keep the house cold at night so they will behave. Snort.
I am having trouble keeping my mind focused on one thing lately, in case you are wondering why ‘The Goddess’ isn’t showing any great signs of progress. It isn’t that the storyline has stalled in my mind, it is that so many others are crowding into the same area that it inhabits in my mind. There are definitely limits to how fast I can write. Teryka Rose is forming in there, and it wants to come out. Although, it doesn’t need writing as bad as ‘Final Contact’. That should be a very interesting book. Well, that should give you an idea of how my world is evolving. I should have Chapter XII finished today, and by working on XIII by the end of the day, and IF it keeps me awake during the night, I will have it done by tomorrow morning. Yes, definitely time I moved the computer to where I can use it during the day. It is time I played a little catch up. If I did, perhaps I would get more serious about writing this. Mainly because ‘Hidden Kingdoms’ is bothering me too. If I can keep my focus, before RTC Ottawa, which happens at the beginning of August, I could be finished 3 novels, and be working on a fourth. I must admit, my mind is really taking some strange twists lately.
On that note, I am gone… time to feed the kitties, and myself… yes, in that order if I want to eat in peace. Until next week, stay well, and think about the event I am holding on FB on the 15/16th of this month. Yes, it is party time, and maybe that is what my Elves are missing, their celebration of completion, or at least, should we say, intermission?
