Christmas is around the corner, or so the programs on television keep reminding me. It must be early for that this year for me, because I am not feeling it. I have finished my gift shopping. The house has been cleaned, and will need it again before the big day. I need to go into the city to buy the last items needed before I can make up Christmas dinner. (I don’t want to go, but I need to.) What I really need is sleep, yes, I am severely deprived.
Why? You ask. Well you see I have these two furballs that sleep in my bed. They have been romping up a storm on a nightly basis. Tath, especially, believes I owe him attention, so he brings me things to play fetch with him… you know what I am talking about, things like straws, pieces of material and the occasional pompom. He tires a lot faster than Snoop used to at his age, which is a good thing. Thena has taken to hiding under the cover so he can’t get his claws into her. She isn’t into romping in the middle of the night, as the hissing and snarling testified last night when he knocked her off of my hip. Of course, it doesn’t help when the Elves won’t quit talking at night either, been getting in extra chapters that way.
How is the writing coming lately? I have been averaging a chapter a day, which means I am approximately 10 or so chapters from finishing ‘The Priestess’. I can see signs of ‘The Warrior’ beginning to thread its way into the storyline, although our Dark Elven Princess has yet to make her appearance. She will though and Kestriel won’t know what hit him. Yes, he is opinionated, he is a High Elven Prince/Warrior/Dragon Shifter. How much more elevated can you get, as far as he is concerned. His pedestal is wobbly though, I promise. How is the edits coming? I am not sure, I have not heard a peep about any of it, although I had great hopes I would as I was told. We will see what happens though. The one thing I do know is that if I finish writing and typing ‘The Priestess’ on schedule, it should be out of my hands before the end of the year.
Well, with little to say, I am out of here. Tath is nagging and Thena looks ready to attack him because he is being loud. In the meantime, have a good one and enjoy the season. Yes, I know… I will get my tree up yet. Until next week…
