Can you guess the reason?
I’ll give you a couple of clues–up there is a photo of an adorable little kitty cat (clue #1) and chez moi is inhabited by an eloquent and persuasive kindergartner (clue #2). Get it?
Well, looks like we might be adopting a feline. As if Mom’s hands weren’t full enough already.
It’s not like she ambushed me. I’ve been hearing about it for a while and foolishly thinking that it’ll pass. But no, every day her yearning gets stronger. I have to admit, she knows what she wants and how to get it.
So anyway, while I haven’t given in to the demands yet, I have started researching the “Felis catus.” You know, the usual stuff–energy levels, grooming needs, kitten or cat, kitten or adult–that I need to check to make sure we have a good fit in case I cave.
With that going on, other things have had to give. The biggest other being blogging.
And oh, I have been battling a fourteen-year-old Ficus that is shedding green leaves like crazy. For almost a decade and a half it’s been with us, we consider it family. Even the cat brigade has been counting dropped leaves and hoping Mr. Ficus will pull through. Last night I got Mr. Ficus surrounded by space heaters (guessing the problem is the sudden drop in temperature and lack of light because of continuous rains). The dropping has not ceased but I can see a slowdown.Fingers crossed.
Alongside the unrest, I’m chugging along with the writing. The final part of Elementals just came out, as well as the boxed set for Season One. Much fun project that has been.
Updates on ongoing projects:
- The Firefly League: 20,000 words Sci-fi YA novella – Undergoing massive rehaul after some great (constructive) but not uplifting (lot of rework) feedback from editor.
- Maia and the Regency Protocol: 120,000 words Sci-fi YA novel – At editors for 1st round of edits.
- The Eternity Prophecies (might be renamed): 40-50,000 words Sci-fi Thriller – currently at 6,000 words.
Not too shabby, eh? Or so I want to think.
Hopefully I’ll get back to posting here regularly as well.
