Clearing My Brain

After driving one run of the #7 through the Walmart and Target parking lot (among other places), I feel a little bit like this fellow. I'm not bad right now, actually. My husband had a worse day than I... However, by the time we are into our second week of these nasty runs we will definitely feel green and want to go "Bah Humbug" to the whole thing.

Ah-h-h... I feel better having gotten that off my chest. But, just so you know, I may have to let out steam again at some point later on this week. But tomorrow I will post the Coffee Klatch post, Tuesday I hope to put up another Teaser Tuesday, which I've missed a couple of weeks in a row, it seems. Wednesday I have some more humorous comics to post. And I think that is all I can promise you all at this point.

As for what I'm working on, well, it's a novelette. And it slightly deviates from my Sabrina Strong Series, as  it's horror fiction, and has nothing to do with the series. It's actually derived from scenes I took out of Vampire Ascending, because as I realized these scenes were very unrelated, and made the book too long. I saw that I actually had another book, basically. But I don't think it will be much longer than 50,000 words--which is right around the range for a novelette. I've wanted to put this one down, but until now I didn't really have the time. Now, maybe I do and will be working on that for the next several weeks, see what I can do with it. 

Hopefully you all had a restful Sunday. I'm ready for some R&R!


  1. Rest and relaxation sounds great to me, too, Lorelei. Two more weeks and then I will get some time off. Perhaps two weeks, but we'll see. Have a good week, my friend...somehow. :)


  2. Alright,Jimmy. You and I will be off about the same time. I should think I will get some writing done. That's my R&R.
    See you on your blog tomorrow!

  3. Hang in there Lorelei! I too can't wait for the season to be over. I love the sentiment but the holiday has been hijacked by consumerism!! Everyone is getting a gift certificate this year because I don't have time + I don't know what to get them. I haven't gone by a mall and plan on visiting only in the off hours, after everyone has gone home. Sorry you have to be in the thick of it...

  4. I know how you feel, Lorelei! Shoppers are utterly feral at this time of year. R & R sounds so good after the stress-y weekend I've had. Sigh. Anyway, good luck with the novelette!

  5. Dora,Thanks for the sentaments. I just wonder why people continue this madness.

    Emma, hope you will get the rest you need too. Thank you!
