Spring is on the way...maybe.
Obviously our groundhog saw its shadow as spring weather is not really here yet. March came in roaring like an angry lion and morning frosts still cling to everything when sleet isn't falling. As for the writing front, it is not going too well. Still dealing with the loss of a family member to whom I was very close. Unfortunately, my sealed computer on which I type and edit all of my writing is in the room where said family member spent a great deal of time, especially during the short period of healing after initial heart surgery before complications set in. Too many memories in that room. It makes it very hard to work. As for further book publications, that can take some time. Editors must evaluate everything that comes in using a first come first served system that can keep a book waiting in their pile for several months before they can even look at it, it is especially time consuming if a writing is seeking a new publisher as I am doing. My current publisher is okay with a good distributor, and the books look great but they don't have the clout to get that many books on store shelves. I am currently distracting myself by re-arranging the house to bring a furry companion into my life, and as I am a decided cat person that means a kitten...eventually. I am still kitten proofing the house. It could be another few weeks before I feel it is ready for the adoption of a meowing companion. To make matters worse, my eleven year old laptop has decided to slowly die, while I am using it to type book two of Sapphire's novel series. I have not updated my facebook page very often because of the dying laptop and it is also why this update is a little late. I guess I'll have to get a new one one of these days. I just got used to it too. Yes, I am more than a little old-fashioned, not to mention reclusive. Getting a new laptop would mean going out and talking to people, not my strong suit. It was hard enough getting a new writing computer a little while ago. Oh well, as long as I can get Sapphire's second book typed out, or at least as much as I've currently written, on the old laptop things will be fine. Listening to music and watching DVDs of "Last of the Summer Wine" has been keeping me sane these past couple of months after losing my mother to complications from heart surgery. This has been a long and depressing winter.
