Here’s my bi-weekly update to prove that I’m still alive. I have this fear that folks will think that I have been sucked into some temporal vortex where little gremlins will tear me apart and replace me with a shell that is populated by even smaller gremlins that will live my life unbeknownst to all my loved ones.
I could be over thinking this though.
Work is still work – busy and life sucking. The ‘relief horizon’ keeps getting pushed back but holidays are coming up which means Finals are right around the corner so we’ll get a spike in activity, then a lull. I’ll take it.
Thanksgiving was fun. Went to Dubuque to see my family and then drove on to St. Louis to visit friends. While there, I was given the task of naming their new kitten, tentatively called ‘Peep’. I offered them ‘Little Bo’ or ‘Peep of Doom’. Surprisingly, they didn’t take either one.
Writing progresses. A little bit of work on Carrionhove but a lot of work on my query letter (where a sentence can equal a day’s work). My goal is to have the query complete by the end of the month so I can start sending it out in December/January. Also came up with a plot for another novel that I might do after Carrionhove but that’ll be then.
