Anne's Randomness

And the floor shakes

I'm in my bedroom blogging while the puppy-dogs romp out in the living room (the roommate is with them, preparing to watch the Army-Navy game). The floor shakes every time the dogs hit it together. I can only imagine what it's going to be like when the pup gets his full growth.

This will be a short post as there's not much going on in the world of Anne originals just now. Having just released a novel and a holiday collection, I think I deserve a bit of a break. Fan writing is going fairly well, but that's for tomorrow's post. Today, I shall simply say a great big thank you to everyone who has been so encouraging!

I shall also mention that the order form I referenced on Thursday has been written up, and can be downloaded from the Contact Anne page, or by clicking here. It allows the ordering of either e-books or paper books by means other than a credit card, since that's something of a problem I've heard several of you mention.

On the writing side of things, well, I've got some new ideas that shall be discussed on Tuesday (short version: my first idea about something, seven years ago, may well have been the correct one) and I'm hoping to have good news for Thursday's post as well. But for today? Well, there are a few bits and pieces, but nothing much to report.

And the floor shakes again... huh. Maybe a short story about people who live in an earthquake-prone region, and the story to explain it is that the local goddess's dogs like to wrestle! And for those who ask where I get my ideas, that's where. From seeing everything that happens around me in a new light.

So there's nothing earth-shattering to report today (except that possibly the floor of the house will be caving in soon). Just a nice, quiet Saturday, or as quiet as possible when a pair of happily crazy dogs inhabit one's home. And a slight bit of disbelief about people who can't see what's right in front of them, but that's another story.

From myself and from the lap-Poppy, have a great Saturday. Stay warm (or cool, for those in the Southern Hemisphere), stay dry (or damp, for those in dry climates), and I'll see you all tomorrow to chat a little bit about the current progress in the Dangerverse and related tales!

I would normally wish to say it was a nice quiet Saturday, but fortunately it was not. Not particularly eventful, but not boring either. The neighbors undoubtedly hate me now, but oh well. I don’t even know any of their names, and I put up with their noise (and shouting, and police interventions) often enough that I’m sure they can put up with me in return. If anyone complains, I’ll point them your way, because it really is your fault, Anne.

On the fictional front, what if the earth literally shattered? What could cause it, and what if it wasn’t the end? I think that was one of my favorite images from He Nearly Killed the Cat: the castle floating in space. (I suppose I should disclose that I wasn’t terribly fond of that story; all the really big questions I had seemed to get ignored entirely.) One of the movies I was raised on was The Neverending Story, and I always liked the scene at the end with the tower floating in space. I feel you can never go wrong with a good apocalypse. If all else fails, end the world and tell stories about the survivors. Yes, I think I’ll write one… Thanks for the idea!

Oooh, almost forgot. Last week you were talking about the sounds of Christmas in Glenscar. I didn’t remember until quite a bit later about the Coventry Carol. I don’t know how common it may (or may not) have been, but it’s at least conceivable that it could have been performed within the given setting.

Well, not everyone is going to like everything I do. Though I'd love to hear what questions you had, in the service of possibly answering them better next time. What exactly did I do to your neighbors, though?
