Gertie is taking a nap with her stuffed snake while I write.
Now that I'm not running around after two pups (our pug Gus doesn't count since all he does is sleep), I am taking advantage of this dreary snowy weather and getting some writing done. I just love working during a winter snow, looking out the window and getting inspired by the scenery.
The view from my office yesterday. It's actually starting to snow again as I write this post!
On days like these, working from home definitely has it's advantages. No morning (or evening) commute, especially during days like today. I don't have to put in "unscheduled leave" during bad snow storms (not that there's a bad storm today), I can snuggle in my warm fleece p.j.'s, and make endless pots of coffee without having to share.
Oh, and on a somewhat related note, I've been watching Dawson's Creek on Netflix (another self-employeed perk) and while I enjoy re-hashing the exploits of Dawson & Co., I am sooooo annoyed that they are using a different theme song! UGH! At first, I thought it would switch over to Paula Cole's "I Don't Want to Wait," after a season or two, but no... as I get to the last season, I'm stuck listening to "Run Like Mad," by Jann Arden instead. Apparently it's some kind of Sony royalty issue with Netflix/DVD's.
So, to get to the main point of this post, this week on the work/writing front, I've managed to finalize the audio files for PARALLEL (should be available early Feb), worked on my taxes (one thing about being self-employed that isn't desirable), did some edits on my current WIP, did research for PARAMETER, and scheduled a book blitz tour for February with the lovely ladies at Kismet Book Touring.
That's all I have for now until I have something better to report other than the weather...
