Four Mondays Should be Enough

October has five Mondays. Today is only #4. There’s just so much…wrong there. 😆 And I took yesterday off. I lazed in bed, watched a bit of nothing, listened to a book to the end, started the next in the series, and ignored work–including setting up this post like I normally. Now I feel guilty. So a quick rundown, in case anyone is playing our at-home game…

Sports were slightly better. I’ll watch the World Series. OU got their mojo back and beat TCU. OSU had the weekend off. Purdue is my new fav collegiate team. They beat the other OSU. Unranked Purdue beat #2 the Ohio State.

Writing? No comment. Except National Novel Writing Month starts in just under two weeks. I really need to get my shit together.

Reading: Or lately, listening. I’m on book 4 of Kristen Ashley’s Fantasyland series. I’m a bit up and down on the books. Fantasyland is a parallel universe to Earth, where many of the people “here” have twins there. There has magic and is sort of an 18th/19th century version when it comes to living conditions. Lots of royal political intrigue, horses, fancy clothes, and a mash-up of any given Disney movie and Game of Thrones. Upcoming, new releases in Nalini Singh’s Archangel/Guildhunter series and Ilona Andrew’s Hidden Legacy series. There’s something else on my wish list but I don’t remember off the top of my head at the moment.

TV: About the same. Live PD, though I have Nathan Fillion’s new show, “The Rookie,” DVR’d and need to get it watched. Also, I’m behind on “Mayans MC.” I just haven’t been in the mood.

I actually made it to the OKRWA meeting Saturday. It was fun to reconnect with my local romance writing buddies. I’m teaching next month so I’ll definitely be there. LOL What am I teaching? Setting up and using a series/book bible. I learned by trial-and-error.

That’s it for me. How about y’all? Any news to impart? How did your week go? What’s on tap for this week?

  1. It’s definitely Monday and 5 is definitely too many in a month. Yeah, we hooted pretty hard when we saw that Purdue had beaten Ohio State. We may not follow football anymore, but that’s just fun. I also heard Michigan was up to some BS, which makes me sad. And reminds me why I stopped watching football. Glad you had fun at your meeting. You’ll knock their socks off at the next one.

    No news here. More of the same. Kinda kicking my own butt today and getting some work done. Slowly, but still. Paid bills today (cuz I totally did not want to do it Friday) and now I’m waiting for the mail to come so I can run errands. Other than edits, no plans for this week. We’ll see what comes along.

      I caught a hint of the Michigan dust up but didn’t pay much attention. There were several upsets but since OSU wasn’t playing, didn’t help us. I only really care about two teams and don’t always watch. I’m a jinx. 😆 I got chapter 1 rewritten but I really think I’m going to have to go back to square one. Which is a pisser. :/ At least the MS is open and I’m working on it. *sigh*

    You’re giving the program next month, Silver? I’ll have to come down for the meeting. Hopefully I can rejoin RWA and OKRWA next year.

    I am listening to the Vesik Series, bks 1-3 right now, waiting for Ilona Andrews new book too. Although I may make myself wait to listen so it lasts longer. I’m alone today at the office, saints help the PD, so I have my tv shows on my phone to listen to and watch.

    • Silver James says:

      I’ll have to look up the Vesik series. I’m thinking once I finish Fantasyland I’ll move on to Nalini’s A/Gh relisten. ARCHANGEL’S PROPHECY drops before DIAMOND FIRE. And there’s fewer books in the Hidden Legacy series so…. Yeah. Putting both off but that gives me more to listen to, right? 😆 Have fun at work today!

Got something to say?
