A few early morning thoughts

Let my start by wishing everyone a Happy Valentine’s Day.

Right now, I’m feeling a bit envious of my friend Cedar Sanderson who is attending LTUE this weekend. LTUE is a “con” I’ve wanted to attend the last several years but the stars just haven’t aligned. Maybe next year. You can check out Cedar’s post about what’s been going on so far over at Mad Genius Club.

Last night, sitting in the audience at the Dallas Symphony, my muse decided the music was a good influence. Either that or she thought it was a good time to torment me. Either way, the next part of the book, the part that has been hanging me up, suddenly broke loose. That’s the good news. I now know what needs to happen to move the story forward and how to get there. The bad news? I was in the symphony hall and not able to make my notes.

Before you yell at me for not following my own advice and keeping something to take notes on with me, I did. I had my smartphone. The problem is that in a darkened hall, it is kind of obvious when you are working on a device of any sort. Add in the fact I was there with a group of my mother’s friends and, well, note taking wasn’t going to happen.

So, as soon as I got home last night, I quickly scrawled the basic premise down on a sheet of paper. I was too tired to break out the laptop or tablet to do so. Now I’m hoping DK (Demon Kat for those not familiar) hasn’t done something exceedingly evil like eaten it or shredded it. At least the idea is still clear in my head. Maybe, by the time all the errands are run today, I will be able to sit down and get the next chapter or two written.

Other than that, I’m trying to figure out how to fit in a trip to Petsmart today for their adoption event. It’s been some months since Rocky died and Mom is finally ready for a new dog. We’ve been looking but haven’t found one we can both agree on. The problem with today is the event falls right in the middle of when we are supposed to meet a friend at the airport and take her to pick her car up at the dealership where she’s been having it worked on. So. . .said friend may be going with us to look at dogs  😉

Yes, I’m wandering, but I’ve decided that no matter what, I am going to blog each day. The entries may not always be deep, meaningful ones. Hey, let’s face it, it’s morning and deep and meaningful is hard to do before enough coffee has been consumed. But I’m finding out that a 400 – 500 word blog entry is a good warm-up to getting some writing done. That’s important.

Now, go hug your loved ones and wish them a Happy Valentine’s Day.
