When the rivers all run dry

Frist off I have to apologize for disappearing for 3 weeks.  No excuse I’m trying to post once a week (as well as trying to get my author facebook and twitter up and running) but I’m just not in the habit yet, I think of topics I want to talk about and then forget. 

I got good news at the end of last week, both my fourth story in my hyena hockey series and my novel that got dropped have been picked up.  The publisher is looking at a twelve week turn around.  I feel like I should be more excited and I can’t tell if that is because I’m tired or because it is so darn hot out.

How hot is it?

Hot enough that several major roads in and around Philly buckled today.   Something that I don’t talk about much is that I work in an un-climate controlled building , it’s been I the 90’s at my work station for the past two days.  I lift and carry for a living, so I’ve been going through a lot of water.  But let’s be honest, water, juice and sports drinks don’t help as much as they say they do.  Better with the liquid than without and it isn’t as bad as all that.  

But I hope that the first two days of summer aren’t what the whole summer will be like. 

This week I haven’t done any writing, and that is pretty odd for me, but maybe my brain is just resting in preparation for the editing.  Or maybe it’s just that I have been working too hard. 

How about you guys? What have you been up to?  Reading? Writing?  Movies?

I have to get some books off of my "to be read" pile. I may just move a few - since I know I'm not about to read them and just go back to them when I need something.

this has ben a very bad week. I would have thought I lost 10 pounds from working in a sauna... but no such luck.

Thank you.

Yeah. You know on the radio they are always talking about "hot yoga" and I keep thinking "well I lift and carry in the heat all the time and I don't lose weight"

I know I'm a little late commenting... but I'm also getting back into things after disappearing twice!

It's 100 over here in Ohio right now, and the temps for the rest of the week (as well as the next) are sticking to the high 90s. As if this drought couldn't get any worse...

Yeah I'm haveing trouble finding consitancy right now.

This week has been nice - in the igh 80's but today it is suposed to be close to 100 again and then on for the forseeable future. Sometimes I wish I worked in a climate controled building.

Did I ask you where in Ohio before?

Nope, you haven't asked. xD I live about forty minutes from Cincinnati. It's going to be crazy going down there for the next two weeks since we're hosting the World Choir Games.

I heard a thing about the World Choir Games on the radio today - it sounds crazy!
