It's been a little rough at work this week. I worked 26 hours in the last 3 days and 6 of them were yesterday...
Needless to say, I slept in today. The poor puppy woke me up with his whining because it was past his breakfast time :( Sorry Ajax!
Today I'm mostly relaxing and getting my lazy on. When my fiance and I ended up finally at home for the night, yesterday, I was so darn tired! I begged to be let out of my writing for the day, promising three chapters today. Well, I got a pass, and now I have to write three chapters! Ha ha ha... oooh...
I've gotten the house cleaned up a little. I really hope to be a full-time author one day, because our house will be so much cleaner then! Though, if I had free time all the time, maybe I would be lazy and get less writing done? In case my fiance reads this post... that last sentence was just a joke. Ha, ha!!
In writing related news... no chapters yet. However (here you should picture me triumphantly piercing the sky with a jabbing forefinger) I did make an outline of how to end my book. I never make outlines, the story is always floating on waves of imagination through my brain. But, I'm getting down to the last bits and I want to make sure everything is in its correct place - especially since this will be the first novel I've ever finished.
If all goes according to outline, this book will be finished in 8 (eight!) chapters. I just had a small moment of foreboding there, so I had to spell out eight. 8 is too close to the sign for infinity, and I don't want infinity chapters until I'm done...
I think it will probably be closer to 9, but we shall see.
Also, for those interested, here is my current (as in, in progress) reading list:
(Hardcover) The Heretic's Daughter, Kathleen Kent
(Borrowed, hardcover) The Host, Stephanie Meyer (I have not, and will never, read Twilight, so don't ask)
(Hardcover) The Monster Book of Zombies, anthology
(Hardcover) A Whisper of Blood, anthology
(Kindle) The Hangman's Daughter, Oliver Potzsch (umlaut over the o in the last name, laaaazy)
(Kindle, free) Bright of the Sky, Kay Kenyon
I know there are more, but some of them are actual printed books and got lost in the shuffle in the house...
In my Kindle sample queue:
The Demon Queen and the Locksmith, Spencer Baum
Amber Magic, B.V. Larson
The Gift of Fury, Richard Jackson
