Rain Witch!

We’re having real weather in Southern CA!!! Rain!

And it’s supposed to rain all week long.


I plan to take full advantage of it and work non stop. I’m half way through my revisions and they are DUE the first week of February. If I’m not around much it’s because I’m either:

Typing frantically.

Begging for inspiration and banging my head on my desk.

or I’m under my desk, drinking appltinis and muttering to myself about stupid Wing Slayer Witch Hunters.

In the meantime, Key’s book is flashing in my head in random scenes…like I’m suppose to make sense out of that? Never mind that Ram just keeps showing me this one scene over and over.

Linc’s being suspiciously quiet…and that’s always a bad sign.

I need more appletinis! How about you?

    Oh Jen… I would help if I knew I could.
    **Pomm Pomm in hands: You can do it Jen Yayay!! I got your back, we all got your back!! We know you can do it!!! Pomm Pomms shake!!!**

    Okay, whew… I need to exercise, lol. Linc is being quiet you say, lol.. Humm.. **slips sneaky shoes on to go see what he is UP to this morning** And Ram keeps showing one scene over and over huh… Well, we know he is a military man, so he is very disciplined. You know he is just showing you his worhtlyness!

    But if all else fails, I will be under the desk with your with a HUGE pitcher of Appletini’s!!!

    Rain rain go away little Jen wants to play… Okay, so maybe I shouldn’t quit my dayjob. LOL

    Sorry to see the weather’s gross for you, but like you said, it’s giving you the opportunity to write. Yay for that. I second Cecile in the cheerleader section. You can do it!

    All my characters are being quiet this week – which is never a good sign. In fact, now that I think about it, it’s probably a sign of my muse’s usual mid-winter vacation. That bitch. Doesn’t she know I have work to do?

    *Joining Cecile and BE on the cheer* We all have faith in you, Jen. You can do it :)

    Hey, at least your rain isn’t freezing. We had freezing rain and sleet all night. Ewww. That’s worse than snow. Plus, it was kind of foggy. Made for really great visibility. Half of our flights at work were delayed due to weather. I’m just glad I don’t have to go back in today.

    Must go now. Time for my DaySleep.

    Cecile, thank you! Your support means a lot! But do you really have those pomm pomm out for cheering me on or are you taking those in the lair?

    Okay guys, appletinis under my desk at five! :-)

    B.E. I hate when the muse just takes off for sun and fun, leaving us behind to start at a blank screen. I’m so sorry!

    The rain is all right, I’m just going to work. Had to get the grocery shopping done early, and now it’s butt in the chair for me. (Any staying offline!)

    Dawn, hope you have a restful day-sleep. You’re so right about not having freezing rain. It’s cold enough, but not freezing.

    We have hit a warm spell here. YAY! The kids were happy since they had yesterday off from school and I enjoyed them being outside most of the day.

    Rainy weather is a good time to work a lot, either that or sleep but I doubt that would really get you anywhere.

    Has anyone read the book Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick? She is doing a signing here tonight and the cover alone intrigues me enough to want to go.

    Great Cheer Cecile!

    I have Linc with me so that is why you haven’t heard from him….sorry. Do you need him?

    (whispers) please say “no”

    GOOD luck with your writing. I hate it when people and screens go through your head and you are trying to focus on something else. I have begun to carry a notebook with me to help.

    have a good day!

    Jen could you tell me when the third magic book is coming out? I looked around the sight but didn’t find any information on it. This looks like a fun sight. Lots of good friends!

    Hi Pam–the third book will probably be out in early 2011, with the fourth book released right after. As soon as I have firm release dates, I’ll post them.
