So Damn Hot

Break for Lunch

Hey Reader,

Just a quick note while on my lunch break! I'll probably journal again later tonight.

Anyways, so far Journey has been thirded for Best Drama. I'd like to thank Cierah. I am hoping that I will pick up the third for Best Serial. I am going to cross my fingers, that's for sure! There are a lot of good stories that do need it, too, so do go through and pick the ones you find worthy!

I guess I better get back to work. . .will it ever cool down enough so I don't feel like I'm going to die? I work in a warehouse, folks, with NO air. Sigh.

Until later today then,

Hey Reader,

Finally! It is FINALLY raining! I can't tell you how thankful I am to hear the sounds of thunder outside my window. Oi. Maybe it'll knock some of the heat down. The damn heat wouldn't be so bad, really, if it weren't for the atrocious humidty. I absolutely despise 60% or higher in the humidity. It makes the simple act of breathing unbearable. Please, oh please God, let this rain storm take away the oppressive humidity!

I have spent the majority of my night working on my one-shot. It's not quite done yet, but it is getting close. I have two, complete stanzas finished, and I am on the remaining third one. I wrote quite a bit last night, but when I re-read it today, it seemed rushed and I wanted a little more. I didn't want to shortchange the story, so it'll be a bit longer on the wait than I had hoped. I am nearing eight pages and have surpasssed 4,000 words on it, and when I started, I had no idea it'd be this long. At this point, I am hoping to have it finished sometime either tomorrow or Wednesday, so that I can send it off to my beta-reader and have it posted perhaps this weekend. We shall see. If I didn't get so tired around quarter to 11!! Gah.

I know more of  you are wondering how the next chapter of Journey to the City of Endless Night is coming. I haven't looked at it since I really got into working on the one-shot, so it'll be awhile. I know, frustrating, huh? I figured as long as I'm working on my one-shot, I'll let Journey rest until it's finished. I'll be able to attack it with a fresh eye, then. The only disappointing thing is that means I probably won't be able to have a new chapter posted during the voting period at the Guild. Oh well. I really write the story to entertain myself anyways. The awards thing is just a side benefit.

Speaking of the Guild, you can still become a member while the thirding period is open. Once voting begins, they will not accept any new members, and you'll have to wait until the next recommendation period. So, if you're interested, feel free to check out it out here. I know I sound like a broken record (why do people say that? Records that are broken don't play. They repeat constantly when scratched..anyways), but I'd like to thank doggieearlover for the nomination, Shawna560 for seconding, and Cierah for thirding. I have been thirded thus far for Best Drama, but am waiting to see if I will make it to the ballot in the Best Serial category. We shall see. I hope so!

Anyways, I'm hoping that I will have the story done very soon. I am anxious to see what everyone will think of it. It's been fun to write and I'm enjoying it.  Then I'll return to the huge, monster epic that is Journey. I'm looking forward to so many ideas I have plotted, but alas, that is for another time!

Until next time,

Far Away Eyes
