I might try to do a chapter of the current free novel later, but no promises, as I woke up and wrote four posts now cued at PJM to go up at their convenience.
This thing isn’t exactly under my control, but at least some stuff is getting written.
And I want to work on the interrupted novels. Normally I do the chapter in the morning before I clean, but I cleaned yesterday. So today I’d like to work on other stuff that’s been hanging while there was a wall preventing me from working.
Of course I also have ALL THE COOKING to do.
I am also typing this in my night clothes (I know, I know) because we had a gas leak this morning, which was just fixed.
So, yeah. It’s been 2020 all over. And while I’d like to write a chapter on Witch’s Daughter, it’s not actually my main priority, as the books that have been stopped for months are finally coming to life, and I’d like to finish one of those…. yes, while I must start cooking because younger son (whom we haven’t seen in months) is coming home tomorrow. Which yes, of course, means I must cook for three thousand give or take a few.
Look, if things go well, it’s the last holiday with both sons in Colorado and able to come home for it. And if things don’t go well, it’s the last holiday when I can indulge in massive and unreasonably abundant cooking. Maybe the last holiday to be properly and excessively American.
Not being Maudlin, but you know it’s a possibility. In the same spirit, in the certainty that Hillary would win, in 2016 we went out to a burger joint, kicked the wheels off our diet and had burgers with buns, fries and coke. One last great American meal.
In the event, the fat lady hadn’t sung, and the totalitarian non-lady didn’t win.
Let’s hope this holiday meal is also a prematurely maudlin “last time to be excessively American.”
Anyway, still alive. Going to shower now, and put clothes on. Part of the issue of being low carb is that I must make all the stuff we’d normally buy, like crackers for the baked brie appetizer, and bread to go with the meal. I’ll do that and desserts today, and meats and veg tomorrow.
I also really want to finish my cyborg detective short novel, if possible. Computer looks about to ready to be operational on Monday. (And allow me to publish.)
So probably no chapter today. Sorry to play hooky. I’ll try to do two next week.
