Gosh! Is That the Time?

At the beginning of this month, hubby told me something I didn’t want to hear. My response was something like this: “What do you mean, I’ve only got four weeks left? By my calculations, I’ve got all the way up to eight weeks. It’s to the end of July, right?”

“No, no,” he insisted. “The BEGINNING of July.”

He wants to know what happens next, folks. He says I have to give him time to read The King’s Sacrifice, book two of The Khekarian Series. I also have to give myself time to shelve it (briefly), to read it with fresh eyes, and – of course – I have to have time to change the ending because he’s convinced it’s going to be NOT AT ALL the ending he wants. See? I keep my secrets. Even hubby doesn’t know the plot.


I can tell you now, I WON’T be changing the ending. Mumble mumble, necessary, rah rah, repercussions, blah blah blah, yeah yeah.

So… what now…?

Oh, yes, I know – PANIC!!!

The Do Not Disturb sign has gone up on my door. Hubby gets to babysit the house and cats. List of Things To Do is handed over. Top Priority is: Keep Writer Supplied with Alcohol (necessary for brain development – if a brain cell sees double, there might not BE twice as many brain cells, but it can seem that way, and every bit helps).

I might have to lock the door to keep the horde out. That’s okay, says hubby, he planned to lock the door, too. Funny, I’ve never been in a room with the door locked from both sides before. You know what that means. Right. A straw through the keyhole for refreshments.

Optimistic? Oh yeah.

Capable? Um… (of course!)

I’m at my desk, right? Well, yeah…

Typing? Confidently!

Ready to get on with it…? What? I didn’t understand the question.

GET ON WITH IT! – Sheesh, arguing with myself. That’s a bad sign, isn’t it?

Okay, okay. Just letting you know where I stand, folks. Yes, I’ll go off now and get some work done. Mutter, mutter, mutter…

Oh yeah. Cheers! 🙂

      LOL. Ooh, I knew this post would get a reaction out of you! 😀

      I’m not letting you guys gang up on me – I’ll be stuck in my office with nothing but pizza slid under the door and the occasional straw through the keyhole for refreshments!

      I’ll have you know, I’m working hard to get it all done on time – I still say it’s looking good – And I’ll remind you it’s not July yet.


      I’ll keep up with the updates if that helps.

      Cheers! 🙂

      Hi Artie, I don’t think that will work – if you read the Mij chapter you’ll know that a) Allyson knows more about extracting info than most, and b) that she’s done a lot of research into the subject! And no, she doesn’t (usually) practise on me! 🙂
      Even if I threatened to withhold the refreshments I still wouldn’t have any idea of how fast she was progressing as she keeps everything under lock and key so unless you’ve got some NSA contacts?…
      … and duck!
      Cheers, Greg
