Holiday Writing

At left, this evening's decadence: eggnog and rum. If you add enough rum you get that wonderful marbling effect.

I'm composing. I'm drafting. I'm writing.

He's how it works: I put my ass in a chair and I write.


Yes, there are lots of other distractions. No, I'm not responding to them.

Day job -- it's a good day job so there's that -- then gym, then a little household clearance, then library and desk.

I'm fixing old work. I'll looking at structure and twists and character development and changing those parts that have never quite worked.

There's a novel in the folder but through the holiday: short stories. 

Watch out. The body count is climbing.

The rum bottle is nervous it might be next.

Who can say?

Eggnog and rum! Excellent. 'Tis the season!

My day is practically yours, but mixed around a bit: writing, gym, cleaning...and writing again (since it *is* my day job).

I think I'm at 50 bodies now. No one should live in those little towns I write about.

Good luck with the revising!

Nothing more dangerous than a sleepy little town with azaleas around the flag pole outside city hall!
