Today was my favorite kind of winter day; the kind where I can run around town in shorts and a T-shirt.
Real winter with snow and icicles and gray skies is great for about a month, and fall is great for about three months before that, but unless it is September 1 – December 26, I do not like the cold. When asked that age old question, “Would you rather be hot or cold?” my answer is always “Hot.” I’ve heard the “But you can always add layers” argument a million times, but the thing is, I can tolerate the heat. I mean, yeah, I’ve been overheated to the point of dehydration before and it’s no fun at all, but I hate being cold so much more than anything that heat’s managed to do to me so far. It’s probably because I grew up in Texas where a “chilly” day is like, 75 degrees.
Last night, I was working on a sequel and I got write a scene I particularly enjoyed and actually longed to experience myself. I’m not going to tell you about it since, you know, it’s a secret, but I can tell you it involved kayaking and I love kayaking and I wish it was summer so I could be outside all the time and hiking and kayaking and swimming. That would also work a lot better if I wasn’t an adult with grown up responsibilities. Oh well. Hopefully someday, I’ll find a way around that.
In other news, the #Plague is still running rampant throughout my sister’s old high school. Needless to say, I did not end up attending their show. I hate it because I’ve been looking forward to seeing it for so long, but I just can’t risk it. It’s all over the local news here how 676 students and dozens of staff members are sick with it. Yeah, that is a big NO THANK YOU.
Also, Cemetery Tours ended up selling TEN copies in the last few days! Oh my goodness! That might not be a lot for a mainstream author, but for an indie, it is HUGE and I thank you all so much! It’s also up to twenty-two exceedingly positive reviews on Amazon, so I really can’t thank all of you enough. 85 people have either added it or marked it as “Too-Read” on GoodReads, so I’m hoping that in the next month, we can raise that number up to 100. In the meantime, I will be working furiously on finishing the sequel and getting it out there. I hope you all enjoy it as much as the first one!
Thank you all again and have a great weekend.
And stay healthy.
