I don’t know what the deal is but I have been so cold this fall and winter! I’m suddenly the woman you work with who wears like a coat in the office and has a space heater under her desk. My poor husband walks around in shorts and I’m wearing three layers and the heat is on full blast. Today it’s really, really cold and it’s not just me. We may even get snow mid-week and this morning as I took the middle monster to school we even had a bit of wet snow for a bit. The boys are whipped up about snow days but I’m so ready for them to be in school, LOL.

Last night I met my Sven goal and surpassed it by 2k! This morning I woke up having written 102K words since October 15. I’ve written several books (from partial and one from word zero) as well as partials and a metric ton of edits and revisions. I feel very productive and now that I face the end of this year and start of 08 with loads of deadlines, I’ll be needing those extra days for revisions and crit on Battlefront as well as edits on Standoff and Celebration for the Dead and FLE on Wolf Unbound. I’m totally in love with Sven.

Battlestar Galactica Razor was pretty darned good on Saturday night. I had some lovely red wine and we snacked on chocolates two little birdies sent me in congratulations for my Berkley sale. My kids actually stayed asleep and no one interrupted!

Okay back to work! Don’t forget to enter the Sexy Devil contest!!

    We had our second snowfall last night, and with the temperature at -26C with windchill, (That’s -14 for you Americans. LOL ) this one is here to stay. And like you, I am digging out blankets and sweaters and wearing three layers even in the house. :neutral:

    I sympathize about the cold. I’m always cold. LOL

    Congrats on all that writing. That’s amazing! And congrats on all the wonderful things happening for you lately. You deserve it.

    I’m SO glad we don’t get snow in Auckland. It’s fine to play in the snow for an hour but gets tired, quickly. I hate the icy part.

    Lauren, all that writing scares me. :grin: I’m really impressed. And the good thing for all your readers, including me, is the fun times we have in store reading all these new books!
