Weekly writing check-in: the one with another deep freeze

 

You guys, it’s so cold here I’m not stepping out on the deck to take a picture. It’s making those horrible cracking sounds that have you think the whole thing is going to splinter beneath your feet.

It’s been another quiet week. I was really busy at work, so I’m pleased with the word count and tutorials I did manage. I should probably check to see if I have any reprints to send out. Or just wait. I’m bound to get some of the eight stories I have on submission back very soon.

Stay warm, everyone!

Weekly writing check-in: the one with the deep freeze

wintercoldIt’s one of those mornings where it’s so bright outside you’re convinced it must be warm as well.

You would be wrong.

It’s a balmy negative eleven at the moment.

It’s a good day to stay inside and write or read or really do anything that doesn’t involve opening the door to the outside.

A quiet week this week–I think everyone is hibernating. No rejections and I didn’t send anything out, either. I did manage brand new words after finishing up the brainstorming and outlining of episode 3.

And that’s about it for this cold, cold day.

None, but if you haven’t listened to Ghost in the Coffee Machine over at The Drabblecast, you really should. I’m still so excited about what a wonderful production they put together.

Carry on

Yes, it’s true. Now you can have Geek Girl and carry things in it too: 

 

It's a book, a purse, a book, a purse!

That's the first page you see.

Actually, you can have just about any book and carry it too, thanks to Karla at Bagitude. Or playbill, or album, or game. 

This was one of my gifts from Bob this year. Except. I discovered Bagitude to begin with, and had a Geek Girl one made for Darcy. So … surprise? Not so much. Still, awesomeness factor = high. Bob suggested I keep my bookmarks and pens in there for book signings, which is exactly what I’m going to do. 

On a completely different note. It’s minus seventeen degrees here this morning. Minus. Seven. Teen. Dude. It’s so cold, the ice on the back deck is making that bone-jarring cracking noise. So every once in a while, it sounds like someone is firing a shotgun right outside the window. 

Because dangerously cold isn’t enough. It isn’t winter unless it’s scaring the crap out of you at random intervals.
