Red Dirt Royalty #7 hit THE END yesterday. Now to spend today and tomorrow working on continuity, typos, language, flow, and story. Easy peasy. 🙄 Needless to say, when a writer is under a contracted deadline, we get a little squirrely. Okay. We get a lot squirrely. Okay. I get a lot squirrely.
So, what’s going on in the rest of reality? Yeah…I don’t want to go there either. Oh! It’s only 16 days until Pitchers and Catchers report to Spring Training. Baseball is good. *nods* And that pretty much sums up sports at the moment. I know the Super Bowl is next week. *yawn* I usually only watch for the commercials and I was sorely disappointed last year. Luke Bryan has been tapped to sing the National Anthem and since the game is on Fox, we might actually get to see him sing it.
Reading: It’s contest reading season so most of the books on my reading list can’t be mentioned. Ah well. I have glommed onto a new-to-me author and book that is…well, it’s weird to call a fantasy about gryphon attacks delightful, but this one is. There’s some romance. There are warriors (Riders) who–wait for it–RIDE magical beasts, including one dragon rider. There’s scheming and family drama and the author’s voice is…delightful. I’m about halfway through and wishing I had more time to read. If you get the chance, glom onto HEARTSTONE, the debut historical fantasy by Elle Katharine White.
TV: Nope. Not going there. Every time I turn it on, seems I just get pissed off. When I’m not writing, I’m reading. The shows I care about are DVR’d. I’ll catch up on them soon. OH! Speaking of commercials, who has seen the newest Subaru Dog-tested ad where the Golden couple’s windshield is getting splattered with gobs of goo? The only thing that would have made it better would be if the dog in the car in front of them had been a Newf. I know. I’m so easily entertained. 😆
Oh, in case anyone is curious, RDR#7-Deacon came in at a few stray words over 49K. I’ll know the final count tomorrow. Until then, send coffee! And that’s pretty much my life. What’s going on in your neck of the woods?
