There’s a lot going on over here at Chez King…
Wedding crafts are all over the place, but slowly getting completed and put back into storage.
Wordcount is slowly but surely growing on THE ANDERSEN ANCESTRY. Silent giggling is going on as I’m adding new wrinkles to the outline I already had. It’s part of the process for me…I need to have some kind of plan, but sooner or later, somewhere, somehow, I’m going to go off outline. Generally that’s a good thing. Some of the best scenes I’ve written have been off-outline, brain sparks of inspiration that just flowed. And scenes with Bert the frog tend to come out that way. However, this time, it isn’t. And that’s all I’m going to say about that. 😉
The Boy has started indoor soccer tonight, so I got writing time while BF took him to the game, and I had a cousin stop by with her daughter, who was selling Girl Scout cookies. I’ve somehow managed to resist the people selling them at work, but I couldn’t say no to her. I think I showed restraint by stopping at two boxes. Hey, I do have a wedding dress to fit into, after all!
The Fuzzy Menace is being clingy and needy these days, and has been trying new and interesting ways of attempting to fit onto my lap while I write. I swear she’s going to end up on top of the keyboard sooner or later, but it’s incredibly cute and all kinds of distracting. I am learning, however, that no matter how much lap I might have, a netbook and a fourteen pound cat is too much for my lap to hold all at once, although Elizabeth the fuzzy menace keeps trying to find a way to make it work. Right now, she’s lying across my right leg, while I have the netbook balanced on my left, and she’s leaning up against the back of my right hand, purring as loud as a diesel engine.
I’m still working on putting together a schedule of appearances, etc., for 2013, and will post them soon. There will be some online stuff coming up as well.
Needless to say, life is a lot insane lately, and not a lot of news to report, so suffice it to say that the new book is coming along, and I’ll post as I get more information that I can share.
