So I got a new printer for Christmas. It's wireless! It should run on the same router that puts out a signal for the entire house! Except... it doesn't. The computer can't even tell it's there. And that's besides the installation disk sounding like a yeti clearing its throat. I'll get it cleared up, I'm sure, but for the moment it's very frustrating.
And then there was this morning. We took the little dog to his puppy class for the first time. He proceeded to ignore me for most of the hour and play too rough with another dog. I'm sure we'll get the message across to him in the end, but again, for the moment, his antics are infuriating. Especially when he's usually so good at home.
This shall be the last cat report, unless any actual news arrives, in which case you will all hear about it immediately, and through every avenue open to me. Sadly, as most of you have likely realized, that means there still is no news about Poppy and Sesame. And as hard as this is to type, I'm beginning to think there may never be any.
I don't, yet, know what this means for my writing. I've always loved cats, and even losing one when I was young didn't affect me quite like this (we let him out and he simply never came back). Am I going to be able to keep writing in Trycanta, or do a sequel to Killdeer if the right idea comes along? Honestly, I don't yet know. We'll see.
Moving off the sad topics, I've had a most intriguing offer from one of my readers, which I'm hoping will turn into something fun and exciting. I haven't yet received the go-ahead to tell all, but if you've ever loved one of my stories so much you wanted to jump inside and live it yourself, this might just be for you... more info to come!
As for other writing, well, there hasn't been any for a while. Ideas come to me still, but they're not as insistent as they often are. They poke their heads up and wait patiently for me to see them, and then they go obediently into their little holes and wait for me to call them. Which, just now, I don't have the emotional energy to do.
If and when that changes, I promise, O readers, you shall be some of the first people to know. For now, the stories are dormant, but far from dead. And who knows when they'll wake, or what will bring them back? We shall have to wait and see. Thanks, as always, for reading, and I'll do my best to get a fanfic update posted here tomorrow!
