I like snow, and I’m not going to apologize for it. I knew there were a couple of systems moving toward Michigan, with the barest chance we might get some snow last night. Sure enough, when I woke up in the middle of the night, there was a dusting. But alas, it was gone by the time I woke up, washed away by the rain. The real snow is still across the Great Lakes and won’t get here until tonight. What I don’t like is ice. Snow=good. Ice=bad. That’s what I’m concerned about with this next battle with Mr. Freezemiser. My dogs don’t like snow at all, but they like it when we sit and watch Guy shovel it.
I wasn’t able to crack open chapter four yesterday as I had hoped. I had to spend more time than expected on three when I realized that things had to happen faster and the text had to be adjusted so Peri didn’t look stupid. Also had to go back and add in another death, fortunately this one is off page and wasn’t even her fault. Seriously, this isn’t supposed to be a dark book, but things just kind of . . . happen?
Today is going to be rough. I’ll be lucky to get through chapter four by the time I push back from my desk, but it will shape the rest of the book and so it deserves a little extra time. I’ve got a bad feeling that I just trashed half of it by my tweaks in chapter three, but if the book is tighter, than that’s a good thing.
For those of you who have ordered Tour T’s and haven’t gotten them (which I hope isn’t a lot) hold on. Guy is going to make another print run very soon. If you want to get in on this latest go, I’m going to send you right to the website with the ordering info. Wearing one gets you in the family photo I try to take at every store. Oh! And if you have shirts from previous tours, wear them to the event! You can be in the picture, too. ;-)
