It's hard to believe how much time has flown by since I started this blog with all of one post. Two weeks ago it was freezing in the mornings, a few early hours registered in the low 20 degrees even. Winter had arrived! We even had a few rainstorms! And this weekend, a mere week before winter officially starts, the temperature soars above 80!!! Mother Nature is severely confused!
In another three weeks it will be the next year... I am not ready! Where did the time go? There's so much more I wanted to get done! Earlier this week I finally stopped denying that Christmas is just around the corner; even purchased a few small presents, some Christmas cards to write, and yesterday we bought a small tree! I even finished decorating it today. So the home is starting to look like the 'season' it's supposed to be.
Work keeps me busy even though business is slower than normal--the economy hasn't moved much in an upward direction yet in California--but there is always the paperwork.
Writing and reading take a lot of my afterwork hours. Trying to tell people about the novel on Amazon.com and Essential-10.com is interesting; I'm not good at self-promotion. And I'm trying to finish three other novels--a lot more work than I anticipated. Seems I'm never happy when I get on the proof-reading mode and spend more time re-writing what's already written and not adding enough new stuff. But it's a big part of writing and it keeps me happy.
I'm also spending a little time on another very short fan-fiction. Sometimes it's easier writing characters that someone else created than the ones you invent yourself. It is a lot of fun, too. And I enjoy the feedback on the different websites I've posted them.
More next time... Hopefully, a lot sooner than the last post...
