I had great plans for writing this month. They were going to be like this:

“Get up Monday morning & start writing! Then write during nap time! And steal an hour after Ted comes home to write! Do that every day until the book is done! HOO RAH!”

The reality: go to bed Saturday with an impending cold (no, not con crud; I’m afraid I’ll be Patient Zero for P-Con’s crud this year), be utterly wrecked by Sunday night, be such a Snoresy McSnoresA-Lot that it drives the poor husband to sleep in the couch, eke every moment of sleep possible out of Sunday night and Monday night, and spend nap time desperately crossing those items what could be accomplished via computer off the To-Do list. Which was 32 items yesterday and is down to heck fire, 22 today.

Kickstarting & Other Good Stuff!

My since-forever-ago writing partner & dear friend SL Gray is running a Kickstarter! She’s tackling revisions of her fantasy novel THE DRAGON UNDONE, and I, for one, am eagerly looking forward to the new revised manuscript. Join me in helping make this project happen, so that we all might revel in the delight of new stories to read!

I have also recently donated one of the newer Gryphon Beach stories to a fundraiser campaign for a little girl named Gwen whose move to a new school put her and her family between a rock and a hard place with regard to Gwen’s autism. If you’d like to read the story (and loads of others by many, many other writers over the next months), please do check out the fundraising program!
