Traveling


We traveled to Springfield, Missouri over the weekend to see friends and family. It’s about a 3 hour drive from our house, we left Friday morning and came back Sunday afternoon.

Today, I should be working my fingers off recreating the lost ending of Competitive Dreams. I admit, I’m not. I slept like the dead last night except for a weird dream about a giant millipede. I also slept an extremely long time for me. Usually pain forces me out of bed after about 7 1/2 hours or so, not this morning though. I slept a great deal for me and only woke up when I did because I set an alarm on Sunday and forgot to turn it off once we got home.

I have basically spent all day staring blankly and thoughtlessly at my laptop screen and I feel sleep deprived still.

Today it’s hot, tomorrow it’s supposed to be lovely and much cooler (a 20 degree drop is expected overnight) with highs in the 90s today and tomorrow in the low 70s. It is my intention to go to bed early tonight and then get up tomorrow morning and work outside all day. I’m hoping going to bed early, getting a good night’s sleep, and then the joy of working outside tomorrow gets the creative juices flowing again. I think I have 2 maybe 3 days more of writing to finish Competitive Dreams, at which point it will get edited by Editor 1 in totality and then go to the next round of editors.

My goal was publication at Halloween, but I have some doubts we can get all the editing completed in time for that due to the missing ending. However, it will release in November if we don’t make Halloween, so you will get a D&R novel before the end of the year.

  1. My smart watch scolded me for not getting enough sleep. I told her that my pain wakes me up and I can’t get back to sleep. The app had a lot of suggestions about how to sleep better. I told it to shut up and mind its own business. Electronics will take over the world they are bossy little things. Sci-fi is now true😁
