My house is in chaos. I’m a tidy control freak, and even though I’ve imposed some order on the mess, it’s driving me f#cking nuts! It even has me talking like a pirate!!! And in moving everything (and I mean EVERY SINGLE THING) out of my office and master bedroom, I’m pretty sure I’ve unearthed some creepy crawlies. ::shudder:: I found one on my wall today that was massive, with a ton of legs. Killed that sucker and threw in the OUTSIDE trash can. Didn’t even trust flushing it down the toilet, might crawl back up. And, yeah, it was pretty squished, but you never know.
On the other hand, I’ve been writing every night as I always do. It’s one thing I can control, plus it lets me escape into my characters’ worlds where the water stays outside where it belongs.
But enough kvetching. First up, let’s all take a look at the new Banner on my Street Team’s Facebook site. Isn’t it beautiful? The design is by Rasit Creations (www.rasit.info) There’s a new button, too. You can see that at the top of the left sidebar on my blog. (www.dbreynolds.com)
Working hard on Aden. Aden, Aden, Aden. He’s a complex guy. He has a good heart, but the heart is a muscle and he hasn’t flexed it much lately. Francesca will take care of that, but it won’t be easy. Oddly enough, Aden and Lucas are drinking buddies. They’ve been on the prowl together more than once. I try to imagine those two walking into a bar … All the other guys might as well go home, right?
I’m also working on a new project. That one’s very nearly complete. Like, one paragraph and it’s done complete. I’m keeping it under wraps for now, but I hope to have news before too long.
I keep adding to my 100 Books in a Year challenge. Added a few. But right now, I’m beta reading the highly anticipated Book 3 of THE HELLEQUIN CHRONICLES by my good friend (and brilliant author) Steve McHugh. The rest of you will have to wait until November. Eat your hearts out, people!! Mwahahahahaha.
Didn’t see any movies, but did see the latest GRIMM (won’t somebody please take Juliet far away?) I loved the way Monroe leapt to Rosalie’s defense! He’s usually so mild-mannered. Fantastic. And SOUTHLAND continues to be one of the best shows on television. SNL with Melissa McCarthy was hilarious. And as always I have Buffy up on my TV (no sound) while I’m working and last night it was the show where Angel comes back from hell. Sweet. I’ll say it again, David Boreanz was a hunk.
Of course, tonight I’ve got nothin’ because I’m writing this from a hotel room. Yes, they managed to chase me from my house for at least awhile. The repairs they’re doing will make the house unlivable for a couple of days. I’ve got to be back over there at 8:00 am tomorrow, er this morning, to let them in and get everything started. 8:00 am!! That’s unnatural. ::sigh:: I can hardly wait until all of this is over and my life is back to normal. I’m hoping elves will come in the middle of the night and move everything BACK IN to my rooms like magic. Unfortunately, I’m fairly certain that isn’t going to happen.
Okay. I’m going to try and get some work done, and maybe catch a few hours sleep before I have to get up at the damn crack of dawn! Argh!
Have a good week. Hope to catch you all next Sunday, from the comfort of my own damn house. And maybe with a snippet as a reward for your patience.
