Right? I mean how cool would that be? We’d have the whole day off to drink hot coco or bundle up and go build snowmen. Or…something. Yes, we had our first snow of the year yesterday. It was pretty, as I looked out the window but I didn’t stop to take a picture. I’ll try to do that today and post it tomorrow. While it wasn’t the earliest snowfall–that was October 26, 1957, it was still a shock to the system. Cooper, however, was in his element. Rain. Snow. Dang dog doesn’t care as long as it’s wet and cold. Brrrr!
I should go make an LOLPic about snow days. Because…PROCRASTINATION! In the meantime, I’m using this one because it sort of fits. On the other hand, if I followed this LOLPic’s advice, I wouldn’t be here visiting with y’all. I guess it all works out in the end. So..what’s up with me? Hrmmm…
I wrote 5K words yesterday on MOON SHOT. I discovered something about Mac McIntire’s past that blew me away. Iffy is being very twisty-bendy-devious these days. Y’all will be so surprised when you get to that part. At least I think you will. The good news is, I wrote a smidgen over 5K words. The bad news is, I’m still behind my NaNo word count. S’okay. I’m only down about 5700. If I can write another 4K today, then I’ll only be behind about 3400 words on Tuesday. See? I’m catching up! Even if I don’t get those many words written, I only have to write a little over 1800 words a day to finish on time. S’all gravy.
The Only finished the print cover for THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC. Yes, I decided to offer a print version of it, since I can get it into two libraries that way. The library in my hometown has asked for notice anytime I have a book coming out in print. I plan on donating a copy of of TOBM to go with SEASON OF THE WITCH, which they already have on the shelves. A reader asked her local library to order my books for their shelves and they did. That was pretty darn cool! I’ll let you know when it’s available for sale!
Saturday was OKRWA chapter meeting. The morning speaker was a retired OCPD homicide detective. He was interesting and I got his black humor, which not all the writers did. Their loss! 😆 After a fun lunch in the Museum Cafe–we hold our meetings at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art–NYT best-selling and RITA award-winning author Linda Goodnight spoke on craft–The Plotting Circle. I liked the way she outlined her process, and it works for either a plotter or a pantser. For a puzzler like me, it just solidified things in a physical way that I tend to do in my head. That said, I like the idea of having a diagram to look at. In other news, the membership saw fit to elect me as the incoming 2015 chapter president. Dang it. 😦
That was my weekend, since I refuse to discuss college football any more this season. 😉 What fantabulous things did y’all get up to?
