Schrödinger’s Cat

In a departure from the usual topics, today I want to tell you all about Schrödinger’s cat. Of course, Schrödinger is not really the owner of this particular cat. In fact, I’m not sure what her name is, but since this is one of those real life stupid stories, I thought you might like to hear it.

The story starts months ago when a ginger and white cat started showing up at our front door. Now, we already have cats and they weren’t particularly pleased with this new development. Of course, Mr Ginger wasn’t bothered by this.

Dinner, Mice, Spn, & New Site Progress

It’s been a busy week so far and, I don’t doubt, it’s only going to get busier as we are hosting our first wedding at work this weekend.

Last weekend we went for dinner with Howard’s father, siblings and grandparents, which was nice. We’d meant to see them a few weekends previously but things hadn’t worked out and so we’d ended up rearranging plans.

However, it ended up being a lovely meal and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Will be nice to meet up with them again soon.

Whatever The Weather, Cars, & Cats

It’s certainly been a busy couple of weeks. Sadly, that means I’ve barely gotten any writing in on the new books. I was aiming for a good 10k words on Lightning & Power, which I plan to release first, but I’ve only just managed half of that.

Of course, that’s from a combination of new work commitments, bank holiday disruptions, and trying to get two new front tyres for my car. The latter doesn’t sound as difficult as it has been, I admit.

However, my locking wheel nut key was badly worn – something I’d been unaware of due to not having needed to remove the tyres since the car was bought last year. This meant we physically couldn’t get the wheels off because the locks couldn’t be turned.

Slow Progress, Daffodils, & Impromptu Nights Off

Writing has been pretty slow progress this past week. Obviously, I’ve had a lot to take in with the new job and, sometimes, that doesn’t leave as much mental space as I’d like to form new words on either Lightning & Power or Calling The Wolf.

However, as I write this, it’s amazing to know that the next book I sell will be my hundredth book sale since I began. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but, so far this year, I’m already only eight book sales away from beating my total books sold last year, which is absolutely amazing!

That’s also only seventeen book sales off my best year (2014) total!
