I must admit I haven’t felt much like blogging lately. I don’t feel like I have much to say now that I’ve turned in the final Tor book. It’s a really odd place to be. I still have work floating out on the sea of publishing, but I have no idea when I’ll hear back about it or if it’s been eaten by sharks. *g* I suppose I’ll know if I see body parts floating on the surface. Okay, I’m done with the water references.
I’ve found it interesting to read through some of my old ideas. I’m actually surprised by the quality of some of the work. I didn’t think I was writing crap at the time, but a lot of stuff doesn’t stand up once a few years have slipped by. So far, all my contemporary work is holding its own. I’m still making notes on my YA. I haven’t quite decided where it should start. I have a couple of beginnings down on paper, but I’m not sure either is going to work.
Tomorrow is my aunt’s 87th birthday. I can’t believe it. Doesn’t seem possible. Happy Birthday, V! May you have many, many more.
Shiloh wanted me to mention that she’s doing a fund-raiser for the victims of the hurricanes. If you’d like to help, check out her site HERE.
Today I have workers crawling all over my house. We have a year to get everything repaired for free, so we’re taking advantage of it, while we can. I’m currently waiting for the carpet guy to arrive. Hopefully he won’t have any problem re-laying my carpet now that they’ve fixed the floor squeak.
I’ve been playing a lot of video games since I submitted the book. My current obsession is Rachet and Clank: Tools of Destruction. This game is so incredibly fun. I can get lost in it for hours and plan to tomorrow once all the repairs are finished.
I taped True Blood, but I haven’t watched the episode yet. If I enjoy it as much as I think I will, I’ll be buying it by the episode. We recently got rid of HBO because we weren’t watching it. If you caught it, what did you think?
And before anyone asks, yes, I’ve seen these posts. I find them interesting.
