What’s Up Doc #3: Where Were You Yesterday, Lady? #amwriting


We stalked you and you weren’t there!

Salutations readers.

I went AWOL yesterday because  friend need me to help her out with her two children which meant I had to spend the  morning cleaning up and vacuuming, then spent the afternoon herding four children.   I was already feeling pretty drained when I got up, and by the time they went home I was even more tired while my Minions were high on the energy of guests and friends!   Then the husband took us to the gym where I had a less than stellar jog-trot session around the indoor track (husband said I looked like I was about to vomit), while the kids ran amok in the child watch room.        It’s been very hard to concentrate this week.

I did have an Inconsistent Cook FAIL with some dinner rolls, but I forgot to take pictures of the little rock-like breads.  Fortunately, they were still edible.        I made a wonderful split pea soup too, which Minion #1 turned her nose up at simply because it was green and she didn’t remember that she used to gobble it up from my bowl last year.      It was all we had so she didn’t each much all day until dinnertime (or supper if that’s what you call it), then ate it.       As I say, hungry people don’t complain about what is on the table.

I have not written much more in my story, but I have at least decided I’m going to have a go at making it a novella length.   I did lose steam and succumb to the lure of editing and went back and re-read what I have to fix some errors.  I couldn’t help myself!       Some days I feel like the whole thing is crap and the voice in my head tells me I suck and must be crazy, and then other days I feel almost accomplished like I can do this.  I am pretty sure this story is much more firmly planted in the realm of Scifi than horror.    I’ve even almost settled on a title for it.     The main character is a vampiric creature by nature.   No, she doesn’t do shit like sparkle.
