Title: Memos for the couch later in life

Originally published: Jun 16, 2004


I just finished up another story. Very happy to be done. I love the story, but it was a slow train coming. My five-year-old deleted it once, and then I deleted the ending once. OY! Thankfully, I was able to put it back together again, and am happier with the ending than I was the first time around. I’m trying to decide what to dig into next. The Italian Gods one is calling me, but the anthology wildcat shifter that I’d been working on keeps answering the phone. I’ll let them duke it out. May the strongest story win. LOL.

I’m thinking that my writer’s block may be over now. It was short-lived but felt like an eternity. I hate not getting things done! I’ve been researching different languages for the books I’m working on and now know how to say “I can’t get it up” in five languages. Always good to know.

Now, if I only had that kind of equipment, it’d make more sense.

It’s been raining most of the day here, and my oldest two don’t seem to care. They’re drenched but having a blast playing outside, so I’m leaving them be. My youngest is here watching a Ronald McDonald video. I never thought a five-year-old VHS tape that we bought at a drive-thru would make him so happy. Proves I know nothing!

Am I the only one who feels like they are parenting blind? I hope not.

My poor children are going to need so much therapy when they’re older. I remind them when I correct them now to write it all down, so they don’t forget it on the ‘couch’ later in life.

I’ve spent most of the week updating my homepage. It’s coming along nicely. It’s a bit harder to do than I first thought it would be, but I’m happy with the results. Maybe someday I’ll be an HTML guru, but in the meantime, I’ll have to settle for my limited skills. That or hope for a sexy young buck who knows how to build websites to fall from the sky. If that happened, I’d hope for a storm. Might get more than one that way. 🙂
