The bright side to writing your blog posts well in advance is that you don’t have to think about blogging for days and days. And then you have something you want to say, and you forget what it’s like to actually WRITE a blog post all in one sitting. That would be today.
So what’s been going on in my life this week?
I’ve been tackling things on my To Do list all week, and I’ve gotten down to what I think are the last 4 “main” items that need taken care of soon. Two of which are relating to my edits and deadline things (which isn’t until July, but really I’m almost done anyway). One’s not really a MAJOR thing that needs done, just something I want to check off so that I’m not always thinking “gee, I really need to get that done so I stop thinking about it.” Yes, in my internal monologues, I use the word “gee.” I also use “humdinger” “nifty” and “boss.” As in “this book is really boss.”
My internal monologue is clearly written by a seventy year old man.
I cannot stop sneezing. I’ve been sneezing for two days. I think it’s safe to say I’m either allergic to author questionnaires, or the finale of book 1 (which I’ve been tweaking a little).
I finally – FINALLY – finished editing my video for Villains week on the Rebels. That’ll go up sometime tomorrow, and I’ll post something with a link in it tomorrow. I spent far, far, far too much time working on this video. Now I’m just thankful that I’m done with it. 🙂
Supernatural and Vampire Diaries ended last night. I’m way more depressed that TVD is done, though, since I think in terms of overall seasons, TVD had a WAY stronger season overall. Supernatural this year was so hit or miss that it really bums me out. The last two seasons of Supernatural had finales that had me buzzing for days afterword. This one was simply…okay. Plus, Vampire Diaries had a MUCH cooler final twist.
I got the final, signed, totally final version of my contract back yesterday. That was so awesome. Not only does it have MY signature, but it’s also signed by the President of Llewellyn, which is the bigger company that Flux is a part of.
And finally, a snippet of a scene from a book that I haven’t really started writing yet (okay, there’s a first chapter, but it’s still a little fragmented). But this stretch of conversation popped into my head this morning, so I HAD to drop everything and write it down. You know how it is.
“Looks like you need some help,” he said, flashing me his Wheaties smile and twirling the stick in his hand. “But let me take care of our friends here, first.”
The zombies continue to advance. Up close, I realize they all look identical. Really old, really desiccated. They could have been triplets. Except no one had ever heard of triplet zombies.
It took me a minute to recognize the weapon he was swinging around so confidently. “A hockey stick,” I ask, aghast. “You’re going to fight them off with a hockey stick? Are they Canadian zombies?”
Hope you guys have a great weekend!
