Hello, Monday. You’ve come back again. Whoppee. Not! However, I am enjoying the rain. It’s been feast or famine in the weather department this year and we’re in desperate need of rain so it’s all good.
Let’s see…What’s going on in my world? Hrmmm…
Inspiration: So, I was taking a shower and washing my hair on Saturday morning in preparation to head to OKRWA. And Iffy opened the shower door.
Iffy: I have an idea.
Me: I’m taking a shower here.
Iffy: But it’s a really GOOD idea.
Me: Tell me after I get out and dressed.
Iffy: But it’s the whole opening to DOUBLE TROUBLE. Rocki will love it. Your readers will love it.
Me: Showering here. Soap in my hair.
Iffy: See, Dom gets a phone call from Gabe. And Mother’s there and…
Me: Soap. Conditioner. Shower.
Iffy: Okay. Never mind. Bye.
Me: Wait. What?!?!
Me, scrambling out of shower, wet, conditioner in hair, chasing Iffy: Fine. I’m out. Tell me.
So there I was, wrapped in a towel, hair dripping, typing madly. And damn if the Muse wasn’t right. 500 words that’s the rough draft of the opening of DOUBLE TROUBLE, the Hard Target/Barefoot Bay crossover for the August Kindle World release.
That’s pretty much the writing I’ve done this weekend. Life intruded. And weather. And dogs. Cat. Muse. I blame all of them for my lack of productivity. However, the STL Cardinals took the Cincinnati Reds for 2 of 3 games. Lots of home runs which was awesome to see. I know y’all really wanted to know that.
What else? Dang. That’s pretty much the sum total of my life. I read a little. JD Robb’s BROTHERHOOD IN DEATH was AWESOME! I’m doing a back-to-back re-listen to it. Read it the first time, listening now while I do stuffs. Read Laura Kaye’s HARD EVER AFTER, which is ostensibly the end of her HARD INK series. Nice way to tie things up, with the couple from the first book getting married after all the trouble is over. Sort of. 😉 Nothing else I’ve read jumps out at me.
Oh, I may or may not be around tomorrow. Depends. It’s the 21st anniversary of the Murrah Federal Building Bombing. We’ll see. Yay for PTSD. Not. 😛 I really need to find a really-REALLY good book to get lost in. Dang. I should have waited to read BROTHERHOOD. 😆
Okay, it’s Monday. No more procrastinating. Time to hit the grocery store. And put in a load of laundry. And…coffee! I need more coffee! Oh, and new words. Yeah, yeah. I’ll get around to them. What about y’all? How was your weekend?
