Rockin' & Rollin'

On sale at www.hiwtc.com
I've been holed up in my office today. I had two stories due but I'd decided to procrastinated over the weekend. This morning I could hear the sound of sand scratching through my editor's hourglass into the past.
I couldn't find a syringe to shoot up coffee, so I snorted a few lines of expresso and got down to business.
Within two hours I'd knocked out both stories and still had time to walk with Jilda, and feed the critters.
After I fired off the stories to my editor, I pulled up my Project list and the highest priority was getting my book ready for press.
I'd been dragging my feet a little on that effort for some time because I needed to liquidate a few holdings to have the money for printing.  But when I learned last week about Amazon's Creative Space
(I mentioned this a few days ago), it changed everything.

A friend had edited 45 stories before Thanksgiving. These pieces make up a majority of the book, but the edits had been collecting dust on my desk.
I knocked out 15 of the edits before I started twitching uncontrollably and seeing monsters, and giant insects out of the corner of my eye.  I decided it was time to call it a day.
Tonight was yoga night which was exactly what I needed. I stretched, breathed, and almost fell asleep during relaxation.
I'm about to fire up the kettle and drink some Sleepy Time tea. Y'all have a great week and do something remarkable.

  5. What a lovely sounding day. Mine involved the Doctor, the Post Office, the supermarket ... oh, and trying to complete my daughters' passport forms. I could have done with some Yoga :-)
