Good grief! Some of the authors were posting at all hours of the night, and I know they're not from the other side of the world! I was sound asleep. After getting up, I began a phone argument with ATT, I was spitting nails until I hurried off to teach. Luckily, I had two great classes today. I figure whenever I can get students talking, its a great day.
That lasted until I had to come home--snowy, icy roads for forty-five miles. My partner and I stopped on the way home for dinner. I had the crab sandwich, crab meat on English muffins covered with Hollandaise sauce. I was still crabby over my phone call so figured dinner fit. It was very good. He had the smelt. Is there a message there?
I arrived home, shoveled the sidewalks which have already filled with two more inches of snow. My cats started fighting when I came in, opened my email to 300+ mails and then remembered I had to post. This is a normal day filled with highs and lows, which is why I write. Writing gives me an escape. Plus, I love telling stories.
In February my scifi story CREWKIN comes out. Can't wait! That will definitely be a 'high' day.
CREWKIN: Renna lost her ship and crewkin, the people she has lived with since birth. Refusing the suicide solution her company recommends, she now has to find a ship on which to serve -- no easy matter when you've been raised in a closed society. Everyone and everything is different from what she has known.
