That damned holiday where you’re thankful for three day’s worth of leftovers is finally over. The turkey’s gone. The relatives have all gone back to their own homes. It’s finally time to get back to work. *cracks knuckles*
Thanksgiving wasn’t too bad. I somehow managed to get more days off during this chaotic holiday than in previous years, which I’m thankful for. I got to spend time with the niece and the family. I survived, which is better than I was expecting. I don’t really enjoy eating so much food and pie when I’m attempting to be healthy. I mean, I had no choice but to eat that Berry Blast pie, and the Apple Pie…and the Pumpkin Pie…
Black Friday was atrocious this year. I still can’t believe that Walmart’s doorbuster sales started at 8pm. What the hell happened to Thanksgiving dinner? I don’t know about other states, but I guess in light of recent events, Florida will have to start doing everything early so we can get done on time. There wasn’t even anything worth going out for this year, but tradition of going out with the Mrs. and meeting up with my friend brought me out until 2am.
As I said, Thanksgiving is over, the weekend is gone, and it’s back to work. I have a few people test-reading the sequel to Daylight Hours now. I’m hoping to hear back from them soon. It’s nerve-wracking and exciting all at once to let people read your work. Especially if it’s a sequel and they enjoyed the first novel. I stepped away from The Kris Grant Series for a bit and started drawing up notes on a new story idea. It was a beautiful morning here in South Florida and it was refreshing to wake up and write in a notebook with pen and paper with the sun on me and no cloud in sight.
Monday is almost here. That means another free chapter of Daylight Hours. We’re up to Chapter 17 so far. I’m hoping that any new readers keeping up with the chapters is enjoying the novel so far. It gets better. I promise. Although, I wrote it, so you can’t really trust me. I guess you’ll just have to keep reading and make your own conclusions in the end by writing a review of the novel online. But what do I know?
I hope everyone out there had a good holiday. I’m glad I got to see my family–despite any attempts to end their lives–and I can’t wait to see them again.
