Tis the season

All my friends are writing novels and I am packing for my yearly trip to Equine Affair in West Springfield MA. I am really not looking forward to the show. I’m not in great physical shape right now. I don’t normally talk about pain, but there has been more of it than normal for the past two weeks. I can’t really ever tell when a flair is coming and it isn’t always convenient (like when I have to move a lot of boxes, set up a store, stand on my feet on concrete for 14 hours and then do the whole thing in reverse) so I’m guessing this week will be rough.

The pets aren’t pleased with me leaving. They always lose their minds when I pull out the suitcase.

Hopefully everything will go well and maybe I will get some writing in.

On the up side I sold my Christmas story - all 10K of it. It is one of the few stories that I have written and read over and liked even in the first draft, so I am happy it sold.

Congrats on seeing the story :) That's fantastic!
On the other hand, I'm sorry to hear you've been in pain :(

On the other other hand, while annoying, isn't it nice to know you do matter to the pets? My puppy gives my sad eyes when I pick up car key.

I'm looking forward to seeing it out. It is sort of a tie in with my novel that is out.

I have to say I am not looking forward to a week sleeping on a couch - but heck I get a lot better with my body mantance after this show every year.

It is nice to know they will miss me - but when they get into 'cat anger behavior' mode it kind of sucks. Angry cats pee on things... sigh*

Ouch! And congrats!
Hi, Bodge! I'm sorry to hear about the confluence of extra pain & the Equine Affair event. Does it ever fail...? Try to be as careful with yourself as you can. Yeah... You wish! Sigh. Well, take along all of our hugs & know that we'll be thinking about you.

Congratulations on the story! I didn't realize it was a tie-in to your book! How very cool! Naturally, I'll be buying/reading both!

Re the edits coming through while you're gone, I don't suppose they can wait for revisions until a week after you get back? Who bought the story anyway?

Haven't heard from or about your mom recently. Email me?

Hugs!
