Let's see: what have I been up to this week?
The re-write of Only In My Dreams is out of the Meat Grinder and with my Beta readers. Hopefully the story is a lot tighter than when I first sent it in. It's about the same length as the original (I think), but focuses much more on the main characters and their conflict. Crossing my fingers on it, since if this doesn't work I'll be scrapping the whole thing and starting from scratch with different mates for both Sarah and Gabe.
The arthritis is kicking my ass this week. I wound up taking almost a full day off when I realized I couldn't concentrate. Spring will be over soon, the rains will stop, and I'll be able to walk like a human being again. Until then, Aleve? I love you.
Editr Kitteh has forgiven me for being gone for a week. He allows me to open doors and be his pillow again. He even deigned to lick my arm to help me wake up the other day! Too bad it was five a.m., roughly an hour and a half before my alarm goes off. Oh, and he's tried several times to kill me while I feed the dog! So all is right in his world.
And there were new releases this week! Sorry I didn't get them up sooner, but, well... Ow.

"I hear there's a wild bridge tournament down the street. And you know Bridge. It's a lot like sex. If you don't have a great partner, you'd better have a good hand." Barry Weiss, Storage Wars
"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?
