Since it's been almost a month

I surmise that this is a good time to post a note to my readers.

Lots of out of town work has been keeping me on the road and off the computer. My muse is flighty when I'm at home. When we're on the road, the little thing's almost invisible.

She seems to be more active as the weather cools, and we're getting ready to get our first dip into the fifties this weekend.

I would be remiss if I did not say that the ideas that some of you have sent me are finding their way into one story line or another. Community Too gets the most suggestions. I think many readers have pictures of the main characters in that story fixed in their mind's eye, as do I. It's pretty easy for me to think 'What would Cindy do' and get a bit of story. All I can say is 'Thanks'!

It's not my fault

I actually have a REAL job, you know, because it gives me pocket change to go with the HUUUUGE checks I get as a writer here. The real job has been pretty demanding, of late.

However, driving back and forth over the roads I get a chance to mull over the stories, and I came up with a new one. It's in the queue. It should show up today.

In the meantime, I hope to sort of ramp up the posting schedules on my other stories as well. To all of you who've sent me email and comments, asking if I was okay, thanks.

It's all about ME...

Many of you know from the news that Louisiana, my home state, has seen some record-breaking rainfall and widespread flooding. A few of you have asked how I was faring.

I didn't flood. My work is affected by flooding at one site, another is iffy, and on top of that other projects are thundering down upon me.

I'm working on the stories as best I can. Dorable, my adorable and flighty muse, goes into hiding when work gets crazy, but she does give me a quick goose or two... I just sent a chapter of Dorable off to the editor, so in a day or two...

Until then, remember, patience is a virtue.

Vital signs

I still got 'em. To those who've written, asking - thank you.

Summer is a bad time for me. I despise the heat, despite being a product of this fetid armpit on the Gulf of Mexico. My employer is adding more 'systems' to my little area of responsibility, and not only that, the guys in the next region over have asked for my particular skillset, as well. Means a lot of miles, lots of nights in a hotel room, far, far from home.

I'm still working on the stories. Dorable, my flighty little muse, has made herself scarce and very moody. Maybe she doesn't like summer either.

Hang on, folks. I'm not dead. I will be posting again soon.

Crack open another one.

Had to open up a new story - a little different, but not TOO different. Just want a couple of people to be happy with meeting each other and and twisting a couple of lives together.

Like most of mine, there's a slow start, then I have to think of interesting things to talk about.
