Waning Moon
Sunny and cool

I’ve had two full nights of sleep and feel like a different person – much renewed! Guess my Downstairs Neighbor actually read and understood my request. Big help.

Finished reading through the material for Confidential Job #1 yesterday; now I have to write it up. Got some business letters done that must go out before I leave tomorrow – I don’t want any loose ends hanging.

I’ve been called for jury duty in about three weeks. I don’t mind; I think it’s important to do it and NOT do everything in your power to get out of it. If you are a citizen of this country, you have two duties that must not be shirked: one is to vote; the other is to serve jury duty. Just think if you were unfairly accused of a crime – wouldn’t you want a jury of your PEERS, not just those who couldn’t find a way out of serving jury duty?

Did some research. Packed for the coming week, but have to repack, because I couldn’t fit everything in, and I’ll be damned if I end up taking a huge suitcase that I have to wrestle down the length of 42nd Street! I’m hardly even taking many shoes – doesn’t make sense at all! 😉

Got through over 600 emails yesterday, from the account I can’t access from offsite, because I was afraid it would overflow while I’m gone, and I’d lose something important.

Putting together the projects I’ll work on this week, and my materials for the Muse conference, which begins a week from Monday! I’m so excited about it. I’m as excited about attending the workshops as I am to run my own!

Still need to work on some articles today and try to get them out tonight or tomorrow morning. They’re taking longer than they should, for resistance reasons more than anything else.

I started the next novella with the characters from Revenge Tangents this morning. It’s called Prince Paisley’s Chintz and I’ve finally hit the tone I want for the series. I have to hold, remember, and apply the tone when I go back to do the revisions on RT. I also need to raise the stakes in RT a bit more. The first three should come out next spring – well, I’ll give you more details about the whens, wheres, and hows as soon as some more details are settled, but they’re definitely coming out! I need to come up with a pithy title for the series (I love the word “pithy”).

There’s a shoe sale on nearby, and I know I should work first, shoe shop later, but . . .what do YOU think the chances are of that happening?

I’m taking the home turf turmoil day-by-day, trying not to let it sap my strength too much so that I have the strength to organize the move. Hold good thoughts for me, and protective ones against the Evil Developers.

  1. Congrats on getting two nights of good sleep! May your neighbor continue to be considerate!

  2. I’m keeping everything crossed. Well done on the 2 days sleep, and have a great week.

  3. I’m glad you were able to get two full nights of sleep. It does make a person feel good.

    Have a good week.

  4. As always, I am sending good thoughts your way! A shoe sale, huh? Is itsad that I only have about 6 pair of shoes? *G*
    Very glad the downstairs neighbor let you get some rest, finally! Hopefully your neighbor will continue to do so.

    Have a great time this week!

  5. I slept two good nights in a row, too!
    Must be the moon, or something (you would know, right?).

    Best to you this week!

    Sylvia C.

  6. Glad you finally got some solid sleep! Have a great trip next week and hurry back – but not too soon (if you know what I mean).

    I’d be interested to know where the inspiration for the title (and the story if it is related) for Prince Paisley’s Chintz came from. If it’s anything to do with the town in west Scotland – I was BORN there! 😀
