I woke up this morning, from a night of being used as a trampoline by two cats that sense spring and springing in the air, and found a green Yoshi on my pillow. It is looking suspiciously new, but I know Tath can’t open the drawer where I keep them and, I can guarantee, Thena can’t. Even if they could, neither could get the keychain attachments off of them. I made the mistake of throwing it, and the Tath cat was all over me like a rash. He is certainly one happy kitty at this time. I eventually put a stop to the shenanigans because it was getting a little rough. (Too rough for Thena, she took off for parts unknown in the house.)
So, you probably are wondering how my little reading holiday is going. I am on my sixth book, four more in the pile and I have read a part of George R.R. Martin’s latest book. I have one or two to listen to on audiobook after this and I can respond to the writing pad that has been calling to me over the last week.
What else have I been up to? Besides beginning to see the signs of the spring rush when it comes to safeties, very little else. This week I am expecting to get a little visit from my niece and her little family. Beyond this, I made a few changes to the chapter I wrote in ‘The Tratchar’; this was before my reading began. I also made the first set of changes to ‘An Elven Love Song’. So you know Eniko has 2 more files waiting for her attention. Right now, Marie is working on ‘The Legacy’, which will be a short story coming out in the near future. She will then work on ‘The Warrior’, while I write ‘The Tratchar’. I have set out 9 books to read during my next break, which will be after I finish ‘The General’. This should be sometime in July, while we prepare for the release of ‘Final Contact’.
I am deciding what to do after my next break and am leaning heavily towards ‘Rebuilding the Empire of Light’. Not sure yet if this will be another novella or not. I am assuming so, but you never know. It will come, as will the rest. I have a few other irons in the fire, but you know how that goes. By the time this year is over, I can see where I will be working into 2022 releases and, for some little reason beyond my comprehension, the further ahead I get, the more I look at things and feel that I am falling behind. Does that make sense? Anyway, until next week, take care and enjoy this gorgeous weather.
