I’m guessing everyone survived Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Sofa Sunday (according to the Guardian newspaper), and today is Cyber Monday. Log into your browsers…ready…set…mouse hovering over all those one-click-buy buttons…
I should have put my books on sale. Or not. I did that one year. I didn’t sell any more books than I did the year before or the year after. Color me Grumpy Cat. I actaully went in search of a Grumpy Cat Cyber Monday meme. I’ll never get that hour back.
So…besides it being the Monday after T-giving when all the on-line retailers try to suck your credit cards into the vast cosmic void of the internet, it’s time to rehash my exciting laugh. … … *yawn* Okay, I’m only kidding a little bit. I got some writing done. And I got some plot thingies figured out. And I plan on getting some more real work done today.
Sports was a mixed bag. I swear the OSU Cowboys are all Jekyl and Hyde this year. They play an incredible game against a highly ranked opponent and win. The next week, they play an unranked team and…lose. It…I just…no words. OU won so now the Sooners take on Texas in the Big 12 championship. Texas beat Oklahoma during regular season. This is the Sooners’ chance to get their own back.
I fell into a reread of Jayne Castle’s Harmony series. AMARYLLIS, one of her early scifi romances released in audio last week and I got a deal on the audiobook. There are two more books in that series that haven’t made it to audio yet but since the St. Helens world and the Harmony world are sort of sister planet/places backstory, I jumped into Harmony with AFTER DARK. I’m up to the 5th book now, DARK LIGHT.
Random trivia: Do you know what the name “Ariel” means? Silver Hawk. Who knew? Still, fitting for my bad boy fae from the Penumbra Papers. And yes, he’s making a cameo, along with Roman, in the current PP WIP.
Not much TV or movie watching. LIVE PD, and PD CAM are about it. Oh, and some of those odd science shows like “What on earth?” and “Secrets of the Abandoned.” I never know where I’ll pick up some weird idea for a plot twist, setting, or story line.
And that’s what’s up in my world today. What’s going on in your neck of the woods?
