Lightbulb Moments

I’ve had two lightbulb moments yesterday:

1) The crock pot works better if I turn it on. Fortunately, this lightbulb moment struck before the contents had time to go bad.  Nice save on my part!

2) Night Magic is coming out in less than a month–March 22nd. Finally! After waiting sooooo long!And Sinful Magic is just 3 months away.

But I didn’t get the lightbulb moment I desperately need. I’m plotting the next three Wing Slayer Hunter books, sort of like a trilogy (I don’t have any release dates,  sorry!), and I am stuck, as in  S.T.U.C.K., on the middle book.  I know some of it, but can’t figure out this one key part. It’s making me cranky. Sigh.

So those are my lightbulb moments, what are yours?

    I had a lightbulb moment this morning. I had to stop at the grocery store on my way home from work to pick up some things for a potluck tonight. As I was walking into the store, I remembered that JD Robb came out Tuesday. Yay! So I had to go down the book aisle so I could get it. I have to finish Kresley Cole’s latest before I can start reading that one though.

    Yesterday I was sitting on the couch when a lightbulb went off over my head. It was Wednesday! Which lead me to remember that I never picked up lottery tickets and that Hubs wanted a newspaper. Off I went to the store. Needless to say, we didn’t win.

    Not a huge illumination, but I take what I can get. ;o)

    I keep having the same lightbulb moment over and over, and no matter how many times I shut it off it keeps coming back on. This year my oldest will be 18, daughter turns 16 and youngest starts HS. All three of my kids are hitting milestone moments and its making me feel old! Where did all the time go? The only thing that could make this year worse is if I was hitting 40, but that’s still a couple years off. Normally I don’t feel this way at all, don’t know whats up with me. :( Okay time to turn that lightbulb back off, lol.

    Dawn, that’s a lightbulb moment with good timing! I’d have remembered that AFTER I left the store. I want to read Kresley’s book too!

    B.E., LOL! Maybe not huge but the lightbulb moments get us through the day. It’d have been great if you won though.

    Carla, I’m not sure if there will be three more books (after Phoenix and Key’s), but I’m trying! The three characters I’m talking about are Ram, Linc and a new hunter named Eli Stone.

    Val, I really understand that! I had those same lightbulb moments when my kids were that same age. It’s a bit of a shock. That lightbulb seems to turn into a flashing neon sign :-)

    Jen, so….it’s Linc’s book that’s giving you trouble? Hrmm…. *waggles eyebrows* You know where to find me.

    Light bulb moments? Office chairs with wheels do NOT roll on carpet. I need a plastic mat, which necessitates a trip to Office Depot. Which means an expenditure of money because…uhm…OD! (Why yes, I love office supplies and consider it an addiction. Why do you ask? :P )

    Is it Friday yet? I need appletinis, STAT!

    Silver, ahhh! The plastic mat on carpet–I has it! But the only reason I have it is because Wizard gets it for me, then replaces them as I break them.

    But I LOVE office supplies! Doesn’t everyone?

    Surprisingly it’s not Linc. Now Linc should be the middle…but there’s a twist, and well it ends up that Eli is the middle book as I’m plotting it now. However Wizard helped me figure this out…I think. I’ll find you if I need you–probably buried under brand new office supplies :-)
