I'm totally scatterbrained right now, so here's a randomosity post...
I started writing again last night. Shroudlands Book 2. I only got out about 850 words, but I like them, so it's all good.
The other day a reader contacted me on FB messenger, asking if I had any plans for more SCIU books and whether it would be any time soon. The answer is yes and no. Yes, I have plans, but 'any time soon' is problematic. I'm one of those writers who had to follow where the words take me. If I try to force them where they don't want to go, it all comes out flat and crappy. You don't want flat and crappy. Right now, the words are taking me down the fantasy path. They might take me back down the SCIU path soon, but I can't tell that ahead of time. It is what it is. I was bright enough in that moment to encourage her to try my other books, though. Time and Amazon will tell when or if she follows through with buying those. Since she's buying my books in paperback, I have to wait until they ship to see they were purchased.
I've been watching Grey's Anatomy reruns again. I tell myself I won't, and then invariably, I do. It's an addiction.
We're supposed to get snow again tonight, I think. Blerg.
I need to make granola bars.
My mom got one of those Ancestry DNA test things. The results are pretty much what I thought they'd be. Scottish, Prussian, Eastern European on her side. The genealogy told me that, so it's good to know the tree is on point there. No native American, so that myth's now firmly put to bed. My sister also got hers done, but she hasn't got the results back yet. Since hers and mine are the same, it'll be interesting to learn what genetics Dad brings into the whole thing.
I'm enjoying discovering more new music. I have pages and pages of songs that I still need to look up, but it's a neat little side timesuck. I like this one - Colder Heavens by Blanco White - a lot.
And I think that's all for me today. Anything random going on in your world lately? Are you as scatterbrained as I am?
