Ten weeks left in the year and time for another Sunday Update.
I bought a new keyboard this week. The HP keyboard I was using had its letters rubbed off way too quick and the spacebar was sticking. Bleh. I bought the cheapest keyboard Wallyworld carries to replace it. Other than a very slight wobble, it's working fine. And my only gripe is that the backspace key is slightly farther right than my old keyboard, so when I go to backspace I often hit the \ instead. I'll get used to it.
I tried to write yesterday. I opened Early Grave and stared at the last few paragraphs. I made a slight edit. Then I stared at it some more. I stared at it several times throughout the day. I closed it down before bed. Bleh.
I'm reading the second book in a series where I loved the first book, and I'm loving this one, too. Sleepy Hollow: Bridge of Bones (Jason Crane #2) by Richard Gleaves. It's a paranormal YA with suspense and horror, I guess. Edge of my seat here, people. If you're looking for something in the Halloween spirit to read, definitely pick these books up. (I think the third book just released.) I also read the second book in a SF series and a literary novel. I raised my reading goal to 90 books earlier this month and I'm already at 76 for the year, so it's all good. Of course, if I was writing more, I'd be reading less, so I'm not sure how happy I should be about all the reading time I have. =o\
Fishing was unproductive this week, but the area is so pretty. I love Fall almost as much as I love Spring.
Yesterday, I saw a yellow-bellied sapsucker. They're back for the winter! Yay!
I'm debating contacting my editor and making an inquiry into getting one of my older books edited. I mean, I've edited it to the point where it was once in the query machine, so it's not a hot mess. But it's not publication ready either. It's not a typical book based on what I've put out so far. Then again, neither was Blood Flow and I went ahead with that. (To good reviews, but poor sales.) So, do I go ahead with that and maybe have something for readers sooner or do I plod ahead with one of my newer books in the hopes it will be ready sometime next Spring? :shrug:
And that's it for me today. What's up in your worlds?
