I must be crazy.
I have, going on at this moment:
The A to Z blog. This is a wonderful event with hundreds of bloggers from all over the map who have committed to a post a day (except Sundays) in April with each day’s theme being a letter of the alphabet, in progression. Some of them are hysterically funny, some of them are very educational (I am going to visit D.C. shortly, I think) some of them make you think, and all are pretty good. For more info, check HERE . It is a lot of work, but enjoyable. I’m still in it.
The Small Celebrations blog hop. This is an every Friday post where you celebrate something that might not be earthshaking but is nevertheless something worth noting. It is the brainchild of VikLit AT THIS BLOG (do visit the blog and the Friday Hop – well worth while). I have had to drop out for the past three Fridays because of sheer busyness, but after April grinds to a halt, I’m back. And perhaps sooner.
MOURNINGTIDE is set to be published May 15. I need to get things up and running (would anyone be willing to do a post for me?) and I am finalizing things.
…and because I am bringing things into line for a series that I am writing (didn’t start out that way, but they’re all connected), I am giving PHARAOH’S SON a rewrite.
I think that’s about enough for now. We won’t mention a new job or other things.
…and yesterday I had a brainstorm for a story set in the timeline of my series. After what I’m calling ‘Jubilee’, which is nowhere near being finished, and before LORD OF THE TWO LANDS, which is in the works and about 25% done.
Now, it is delicious to know that I still have ideas, and to see that the ideas are viable and could be very entertaining… But I think I have enough on my plate. Still… The notion of two strong personalities grappling over a suddenly empty throne… A hint of murder, a hint of betrayal…
And I wasted about an hour last night and today finding photos that would represent the two characters. (The lady, on the right, seems formidable…)
I am a fool.
