Last night, I finished revisions on Boy Band. The next step, of course, is to run one last spelling and grammar check before sending it off to my dearly beloved editors. One of them lives in California, so I have to email it to her. That’s great. I can get it sent off tonight. But my other editor lives right down the street and I like to print it off and give it to her. Unfortunately, I do not own a printer, so in order to print off full manuscripts, I have to drive to Staples.
Well guess what?
THERE’S STILL ICE ON THE ROAD.
Guess what else?
IT’S SUPPOSED TO GET WORSE TOMORROW.
That’s right. Texas is planning on 2-4 inches of snow. I mean, snow is a lot better than ice, but I still can’t get out and drive in it! All the stereotypes are true, folks. Texans cannot drive in snow or ice. If you get behind the wheel in this stuff, you are asking for it. I speak from experience. I totaled my car back in 2010 because I thought it was no big deal. Nope. It is a big deal. I was lucky enough to walk away with just a scratch, but I am through taking chances when it comes to ice and snow.
So, that’s my snow rant. The good news is I have brownie mix. And a LOT of books I haven’t read yet. So the cabin fever isn’t too bad. Still, I REALLY miss the sun. The sun is my friend. I like the sun.
I say there’s no time for celebration, however, because I have two new projects that I need to have finished by Saturday. I’m really excited about them, but I also really need to buckle down and focus on them as well. That’s good, because I like being busy, but it’s unfortunate because I just started reading a new book and it’s really good and I want to finish it and do nothing else and the cold, grey, weather outside is only making me want to do nothing except lie around and read even more. Yes, I know, that was a very long sentence. I’m sorry.
Good things are happening, y’all. In spite of the cold.
