It’s getting colder, dropping below freezing, and staying in bed longer seems like an increasing good idea. It’s not. That soft warmth is a trap, intended to keep you prisoner—an addict to its embrace. Don’t fall for it. Don’t be like me.
Joking (or half-joking) aside, a sudden cold snap can make you feel incredibly lethargic. I’m not sure what brought it on, exactly, but I haven’t seen the sun in days. It’s either been too overcast to see more than the vague position of the sun or, like today, raining nonstop. It’s scary how a sudden change in weather can affect you. The only thing scarier will be my power bill now that I’ve turned on the heater. Wish me luck on that.
As far as a progress report goes, I’ve completed my revision on one of the side stories I wrote a while back. I won’t say who it’s about because that would ruin the surprise, but as I went through it a second time, I felt as though I was reading a fairy tale. I don’t know if it’s because the story lends itself to a fable-like reading naturally or if the style of writing I used to hide the identity of the main character made it feel that way, but that’s how I felt. In any case, My current plan is to release it for free on the website shortly after the book launches or maybe at the same time. I would really like to get the other side story revised, but it’s a much longer piece, and February is coming quickly.
Geez. I can’t believe February is so close. It feels like I’ve been working on getting this book sold forever, but as the time for release approaches, I’m growing more nervous. There’s still over two months to go, but it feels like tomorrow. However, today is today, which means there is work to be done!
Oh, hey! It’s been a while since I actually talked about the book itself, huh? I didn’t even mention Thanksgiving, but that’s okay. It’s used to be overlooked ;(
