You know, it’s been a LONG winter. Maybe not GRRM long, but longer than I wanted. Much longer than I wanted.
But it’s finally warm out. The snow is gone and there is music in the morning when I go out. I’m still adjusting to my work schedule, but it’s getting easier. I’m not fighting it as much. Now, of course, I have allergies, but I’ll take allergies over snow pants, seriously.
I’m still sort of on crutches, although I’m not using them very much. I go back to the doctor’s on the 30th, and hopefully they’ll finally give me the go-ahead to stop using them fully. I’m walking on May 5 in a charity walk, for MS research, and I will be damned if I do it on crutches! But hey, if I have to, I have to.
Writing is going good – I’m working on the rough draft for Deep Waters, the 2nd Pendragon Casefiles novella. The first one, Into Thin Air, is on schedule to be released at Balticon, and I’m hoping to have copies soon for reviewers. Want to review it? Drop me a line at val at vg-ford.com and let me know!
I’m also working on FaeryTale Princess again. I’m really liking this story, and my writer’s group is intrigued. Also, at this point, the hero is kind of an ass. Which is fun to write. Don’t worry, he won’t always be. It’s sort of a romance, after all!
I’ll have cards for my proofreading business and swag from Lake Knight Paranormal (the ghost hunting group in Pendragon) at Balticon. I might even read from the first novella!
So yeah, life is looking up. I find it usually does in the spring. I just wish it wouldn’t take so darn long to get here.
