Two Minutes

So I have had something running in my head since ... well since before I woke up this morning. You know that feeling, when you're half awake and half asleep and arguing with the alarm clock because you absolutely DO NOT want to get up and ruin whatever is running in your head? Well that was my morning. And then, I get into the office and I have been on the phone non-stop. I haven't even had time to get it the brain buzz on paper yet! Just thought I'd swing by and say that... maybe it will turn into something. Maybe not. Okay, need to make the most of this two minute break! Have a good day!

Happy October, everyone!

Can't you feel the changes in the air? I love it! The season for scarves and sweaters is coming / here - depending on the time of day, you know, since this is Utah we're living in. Freezing in the morning, sweltering by noon, raining like a flood at 3:00 pm and then hot at night. You just never know!

Well, we did get childcare worked out -for anyone who was interested, but it sure is expensive when you're not family! The girls are excited for the new pre-school / daycare setup and we'll have to see how it all works out. In the midst of all of this, I've had to try to organize an office move at work and get everyone in my group across the building with their things. It was crazy! But now, sitting in my nice new digs... life's looking pretty good.

So my sister, my adorable little (but bigger than me) sister, came to me and said, you should "write a story from [so and so]'s persepective" and I turned to her and said, but I already started from this other character's. She said, I don't want to read about that. I want to read this. So, being that she's my sister and currently my biggest fan and not because I pay her to be, I thought, huh, that could be fun. So as I've been working to finish my second manuscript (nope, no takers on the first yet, but still have a few queries out there, we'll see - thinking positive), when I need a distraction I've started on the stories of a couple other characters. And well, who would have thunk I had such funny people talking in my head?

OK, that's it for now. Have a great day everyone!
