I'm a northern girl. This snow-drama does not compute. I'm all for staying off the roads when it's not necessary during a snow-storm, but after days of snow just sitting in the roads, I'm ready to organize a grass-roots effort to drive north, procure some rock-salt and a shovel, and teach the south that it's okay to move the snow.
Seriously, guys. It's not like you're the Wicked Witch of the West. You won't melt if you touch it. Go ahead. I dare you. Bend down and move a clump of snow off the sidewalk or the road. It's cathartic, and it produces this thing called ... TRACTION!
I bought a little shovel for my car, and I went out to shovel out my parking spot. People stopped and stared as I did it. Like I was doing something innovative. Silly me, I'm of the ilk that believes when you have to remove snow from your car, you should also move it off the pavement, not let it clump up, melt, refreeze, and create giant mounds of impassable, craggy, mini-parking-lot-mountain-ranges.
So yeah, the sun is out again today, hopefully doing some more melty goodness. Except there's that part where there's nothing more dangerous than an endless stretch of icy road with liquid melt sitting on top of it to negate any and all traction you can possibly get. But activity is starting to return to SC, thankfully.
The southern mail delivery motto seems to be: Sorry, y'all, sleet, rain, snow, and dark of night are guarantees that you won't see your mail for a month. Hope you weren't expecting anything important. Which is great when, you know, you're waiting for your first electric bill and it doesn't come, and you dig around online to find your account and its overdue because your mail guy never brought it. I think I'm getting about 50% of my mail, if I'm lucky.
Interview is rescheduled, so fingers crossed. Very nice place, so I'm hopeful.
Book-wise, I'm awaiting a guest-post or two, a review or two, and an interview or two. I shall post updates when I get them. I've become a total narcissist, the way I Google my own stuff to make sure no piracy is taking place, and seeing if any mentions are floating around.
The One Hundred Romances Project is going well, too. Getting some decent reads in, and I have an awesome group of reader/reviewers on board.
Janie: Yeah, that damn plot bunny won't let go. So I've jumped ahead in the story to try to work out the angle, see how feasible it is. It's not how I anticipated the story going, but I should know by now that I don't control the characters, they call the shots. But I'm doing some writing, so hopefully I'll make a decision for sure about the new plot bunny, and we'll go from there.
No bed yet. *facepalm* But the 6-8 week window hasn't closed yet, once that starts lurking I will start to rage.
I should go out and get out in the world today, but my tummy is feeling meh. Guess I'll lounge around and see if I can get more writing done. How's it shakin' in your neck of the woods?
