Writing is going well. I passed the 50,000 word mark AND the ending is starting to gel. Can I say PUMPED? Okay, I will! I'm PUMPED! I've just been forcing the writing out, hoping something would come to me, and it has. Talk about relieved.
Sitting butt in chair and writing something, anything, is soooo true! Eventually your mind (or muse) will figure it out. I'm having fun now.
I finally got the instructions I've been waiting for to submit my short story for an anthology contest my chapter is putting on for chapter members. They are looking to publish by November 1, so I shouldn't have to wait too long to find out if I made it. And if I make it, I expect you all to buy a copy of the book.
Ah, just kidding.
Well, not really.
Spider update: Yep, he's still alive. I assume it's a he, since I don't see any eggs. If I did, then I might have to do some slaying. So far he's just been busy catching moths and rebuilding his web. And so far, I refuse to open the back door. Ain't having him in MY house. How do you like this picture? I finally got one of him being active.
This Friday, I will be doing my husband a HUGE favor and will stand in line at the AT&T store so he can get the iPhone 5. His iPhone 3 died back in early August (the phone part broke, not the rest of it) and when he heard the 5 was coming out soon, he decided to wait. I know it's been killing him. He bought a cheapie phone, one that did not require a plan, just to get by. He's been barely getting by, too. I'm tired of hearing him whine about it.
So, yeah, I'm going to be good and hopefully get him one of the 5s. I figure it will be no different than when I had to stand in line at Dragon*Con to wait for a panel (or at the RT Con when I had to wait for a meal). I'll have a book. It'll be good.
