Snowmagedon Part II is currently underway here in Lexington, KY. The Gubna has declared a “state of emergency” for the entire state! State Troopers and National Guard are helping stranded motorists. Some of them were trapped in their cars for eleven hours! I felt so sorry for them and was thankful my husband didn’t have to go to work, but other friends were forced to go in by their employers. One employer threatened one friend with being fired if he didn’t come in! When the governor of a state requests you to stay off the roads and at home where you are safe is reason enough not to get on the roads in my book.
However, as I said before, The Husband didn’t have to go to work so we are in a nice warm apartment with our dogs and turtle and I am busy writing while he is busy resting – he doesn’t get to just veg out in front of the TV often.
(Even the turtle is out of his big tank because the water turned colder than what he needed. He is now in the small tank beside me on his heating blanket with a heat/sun lamp over him. Lil Dude is not as happy being beside me as I am to have him. He is trying his best to discover a way out. Before the small tank was ready I had him on the laptop and singing. This was perfectly acceptable. He didn’t try to run away or hide. He was warming up and was quite content to tuck his legs into his shell and a good part of his head. He did not want to go into the small tank.)
The vampire/terrorist story is coming so quickly now it is time to switch to the computer. Even though part of my day has been typing in previously handwritten chapters, the progress toward the final draft is going very smoothly. There are some “mistakes” I’ve corrected, of course, but not so blaring as to make me shudder. In fact, the continuity of the story benefits from the “mistakes” found. Hopefully this will continue throughout the typing phase. I am very curious to see how many words I will end up with after this phase is through. I’ll post this later.
