March Break

It's four days into march break, and I've had a great time lounging on the couch, watching my Star Trek Voyager DVDs. Today though, I'm going to make some attempt to get some writing done.

It's been interesting, watching this show. Not only is their out-of-uniform fashion something to be remembered with fascination (there are some speedo shots that should have been banned...seriously) No, what I find the most interesting is the politics. What makes Star Trek so interesting to me, is the rich history and depth of world building that's grown with each new series and movie. As someone who's favorite part of writing is developing the character's history, and in some cases, the history of a made up world, Star Trek has always been something of an inspiration for me.

It had been a long time since I watched any of these (except the new Star Trek Movie...yum!) I'll be watching them now with more in mind than entertainment.

A Sale!

I received a contract for Jewel of the Highlands yesterday from Red Rose Publishing. Very excited. It's been a while since I've had a sale, well it's been a while since I've done much serious writing.

I've been trying my best to keep up with my writing goals the last month, but with no real heat in the house, it's hard to write. My writing office is now a pillow on the floor of the living room, with the laptop on the footstool for our poang chair. I think my butt and back are going to go on strike at some point. It's not the most ergonomic set up. But, since we can't heat the sunporch, where my desk is, it'll have to do. Apparently, their best guess for when we'll have our new furnace set up is March 21st....

Okay, back to work. Or maybe out to get a coffee...at least the car can be kept warm.
