I woke this morning to discover, alas, that my day in the sun is over. Still, considering I never imagined in a million years I’d ever make the top ten of ANYTHING, at all, getting to number one at All Romance Ebooks for twenty-four hours was more than fun.
Did you ever have one of those days when every news headline from “Jellyfish Gone Wild” to “California Plans to Control Emissions” just cracks you the hell up? Or a simple misreading of something or being interrupted makes them seem funny? Like “Protect Your Most Valuable Asset“.
My family is putting up Christmas lights, and naturally, all four of my men are screaming at each other. It’s kind of that time of year. “Shut up, don’t know you know this is a dang joyous family event?!!” During the annual lighting of the house, my daughter and I hide in my bedroom like the family Frank. I’m sorry, now, that I didn’t write a Christmas-themed story. I am sure to rectify that for the coming year, because I like Christmas and have always made an effort to make it as special as possible. Now that the children aren’t little anymore that has become harder, what with everyone wanting to go everywhere with their friends and liking their music better than carols. It’s becoming more difficult to involve them in family activities that don’t have to do with them getting cash.
It’s fun to remember though, back to my own childhood, that when my parents were saying the same things about me I wasn’t gone, I was just different.
So, tomorrow, the TREE. Yep. This will mean housecleaning and possibly cookie baking. In the mean time I have finished the rough draft, (actually this time I think I really did) of the sequel to St. Nacho’s, and next week I will be working on my one other WIP, ePistols at Dawn and then, perhaps, I can submit them and spend Christmas doing something else besides worrying about work.
And for Aidara because Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without Korean boy bands or colorful scooters…
