    Gads, another publisher just requested a full on the same book and asked for the fulls on four of my other books. Another requested the full. That is a spread of 11 books between three publishers. I can't figure out what's happening to draw such good fire. I can only think they read my credit list and history all the way through and got curious somehow. I also just won a best YA title of the year from the N. N. Light Book Awards contest--they might have picked that up. I don't think I could start the new year any better than this. I still 18 submissions out there and my agent has about 12 running for another book.

    Thanks for those heartfelt well-wishes. May all of you draw some good fire and lime light this year!

    Currently writing a new and shiny paranormal romance from a prompt:

    At an old bookstore, you find a book that helps you interpret your dreams. But something is strange about it. You fall asleep reading the book and find yourself in a dream that you cannot wake up from. What is it? And how will you snap back to reality?

    I'm thinking of something surreal, along the lines of Al Stewart's, "Year of the Cat."

    That sounds really good. I just did something somewhat similar, only in was a portal fantasy. I love the dream part of it.

    Yawning my head off, eyes watering, getting ready to go fall into a bath before bed. Just plowed through the first two drafts of a flash fic this evening for the first time in for-ev-arrr and if I wasn't so tired I'd be doing a Snoopy dance over that.

    What am I doing? Preparing for the day, even though it's nearly 10:30 in the morning. I overslept. And there's not even an interesting story behind my oversleeping.

    I woke up around four this morning, needing to relieve myself, as I often do during the night since my prostate prevents me from completely emptying my bladder. Wait! Too much information! Sorry.

    On returning to bed, it occurred to me that I hadn't thanked my brother-in-law for the gift he gave me on Christmas. So I tried to fall asleep, but it kept nagging at me that I hadn't thanked him, and I had actually tossed the gift in the trash. I felt enormous guilt. I don't particularly like my brother-in-law, but he is family.

    After laying in bed for about ten minutes, tossing and turning, I finally got up, went to my office, retrieved the discarded gift from the trash can, and sent a brief email to my brother-in-law, thanking him for it. Ahhhh. Relief. No more guilt.

    While I was up, to help me sleep, I toasted a bagel. All those carbs would surely help me sleep. Naturally, the dog got up to see what I was up to and wanted a biscuit, which of course, he received. He seems to get a biscuit every time I go into the kitchen. Or my wife goes into the kitchen. Spoiled dog.

    The bagel is the reason I overslept this morning. It's like taking a sleeping pill.

    There is much to do today. The Vikings take on the Saints in a few minutes, but before watching that, I need to go out and play fetch with the dog! Ugh. The retired life is exhausting. And then at 2:40 this afternoon, it's the Seahawks vs. the Eagles! Don Henley is 72, for crap sake. He can barely walk! I'm taking the Seahawks in that one.

    The Eagles suck, anyway. It's not even the Eagles with all the replacements; it's more like an Eagles cover band. Glenn Frey was the voice of the Eagles, and since he died, they're just cashing in on the name. And Don Felder has completely sold out to the extent that nobody in the band can stand being around him, so they have somebody else playing his parts. Joe Walsh? He's not even a member.

    Just kidding. My mind isn't that far gone yet.

    Thinking about getting my cat put down, if she even lasts until tomorrow. She's old and sick and has taken a big turn for the worse in the past couple of days. I think her kidneys have shut down.

    awww, I am sooo sorry... *hugs*.... what a tuff day...
    She lost herself in the trees,
    among the ever-changing leaves.
    She wept beneath the wild sky
    as stars told stories of ancient times.
    The flowers grew toward her light,
    the river called her name at night.
    She could not live an ordinary life,
    with the mysteries of the universe
    hidden in her eyes....
