It may be cold, but the sun is rising in a clear sky this morning, and I’m betting that it gets warmer than the paltry 33 they are forecasting. The chipmunks have been up now for two days, and that sun is hot. Hang in there. The warmth is coming. You can’t stop the sun. You can only delay it for a time.
I’m listening to Electric Area on my Sirius this morning. I can take about an hour of it and then the “boots-and-pants” begin to drive me nuts, and then it’s over to Chill or maybe Spa if I am really strung out. And I’ll admit I’m a bit strung out today, but in a good way. The plotting for Peri II is going extremely well, as in I know this has the bones to be the best thing I’ve written to date. I can’t wait to get it on paper so I can go back to Peri I and bring some of this new sparkle to it. I’m pulling from OMG-everywhere, and it’s draining even as the exhilaration has me at it until the next idea is teased out, tried, and worked in or abandoned. Hence the need to shift to something very calming on the radio. This is nothing new, but feels compacted this time, a pattern that’s becoming recognizable and allows for better control, because when the mind shifts over to pure creativity with no regard to reality, the messy chaos follows you out of the office door and into the real world. If you’re not watching for it, it will break things.
I’m not explaining this very well, but if I go silent on the blog for a few days, it’s only because I’m working, and will only stop in here to mention stuff like it being the last chance to get a personalized The Undead Pool. (Seriously, it is. I’m going in tomorrow to sign in the back room, and from then on, it will be signature only. International is okay, but email them for a quote first at email@example.com. And be sure to tell them when ordering whose name you want it signed to, or you’ll just get a book. [order signed book]
I won’t be going utterly silent, because that just doesn’t work for me, ( I love my FB) but I probably won’t have an organized thought on my blog until at least Monday. :-)
