Status Report

In front of me: Chapstick and coconut lotion
-It's cold and dry, and I'd rather be thinking of the tropics.

To my right: Four books in various states of reading completion, and nine books either waiting to be cracked or on pre-order and due to arrive within the next two months. Also, jokers. Please note that one of the partially-read books is on my kindle, which I'm rationing because I lost my charger and the replacement I ordered hasn't yet arrived. You'd think the machine was my source of oxygen or nourishment the way I'm fretting over it.

To my left: Two shaved felines, one sleeping son, a dayy jobb that's finally considering slowing down from its screaming heights, clowns, and a car that's still at the body shop. (Thanks, East Coast winter storms, for disrupting national parts shipments.)

Behind me: Two completed novels, plus one stalled and another recently begun, a novella and a half, five short stories, and a folder containing a staggering 52 ideas and starts. All of these either began during or almost entirely completed during 2010.

It's not yet 9:00 p.m. and I'm going to bed (where I will likely read for three hours before passing out). Over and out.

  1. Your right side (sorry 'bout your cord) and behind you stats sound achingly familiar. Also on my right is a car with a disfunctional stereo cause I can't get the security code re-entered.
