when you're hot, you're hot

three thousand words on thursday, and nearly five thousand yesterday, and i have 7500 words and counting. i had other things i wanted to do, but this story seems like it wants to be told. it's about a woman who connects to her long-ago love via her blog. (and no, it's NOT based on reality. at least, not THAT part.)

it's time to let it brew a bit, let the bits and pieces floating in the brew congeal, take shape and form, mostly because i have other things to do. the Angels have been patiently waiting, laying groundwork. i'm reading cards at passiflora today... if you're in the neighborhood, stop in and say hello :).

i have a gift list to make - there's nothing like waiting until nearly the last minute to up the excitement quotient. hopefully most will be online orders. and tomorrow, writing friends are coming - so i have a house to tidy up. i hope we can get our tree today, too. i have to remind Beloved it's time to cut up the old one for our Yule Log. this is the only way i'm able to justify to myself having a live tree for christmas.

so off i head to the shower... to dream, and to plan.

and furthermore, the war must end. blessed be.

working those fingers to the bone you are. watch out or they will be ready for one of the potion pots. LOL
keep up the good work. wish i was in the "neighborhood" as i would stop in. but this is the best i can do. thanks for dropping by for a visit this morning. we added 13 more jars of marmalade this morning and going to do the syrup later this morning.

Now that I know what this great feat entails WOW!! That's awesome. It must be just pushing to get out of you and onto the page. What a great feeling it is to have it come so easy!! And I can't wait to read it =)

I bought two of your books on Amazon. The third one that I ordered was out of stock... and it turns out it is the first book of the trilogy! Of course... but I went back and ordered it day before yesterday and am looking forward to starting them!! I should have it by Monday =)

Wonderful stuff. I am going to get our tree today, & I've started Christmas shopping. I've bought something for my sister and my present from my husband. What a great start!
