Dear God in heaven, no one should be awake at this hour of the dark. In fact, I was 45 minutes ago. At what is really 4 o’clock in the damned morning. Because as the only team member at Evil Day Job without a kid, I don’t get asked if I’d like to travel, I just get sent, and I have to be 2 hours away at 8:30 for one of our projects. Given that this is happening the brutal week we shift to Daylight Savings Time (which is obscenely early and should not be happening until after Easter), I am NOT a happy Kait.
There is much profane muttering going on as I ingest my tea and try to figure out how to prop my eyelids open with stilts.
I’m packing something for breakfast because there’s no possible way I can actually EAT right now. UGH.
This is not natural.
DABWAHA voting is open, but my bracket is not yet up. I believe they are supposed to be posting a schedule as to what is going up when, but this first round with all 64 finalists will be voted on in 2 bracket sets, each open for 12 hours apiece. Right now it’s 2 pairs from the Historical category. It’ll shift at noon to, I suppose, the other 4 from that category and they’ll have until midnight. Red will be up either Thursday or Friday. I’m hoping for Friday, as I’m on the road AGAIN on Thursday (:more profane mutterings:). Rest assured as soon as voting goes up for Red you will be hearing from me via every social media outlet I’m on. I’m going to need every RT, facebook share, reblog, and friend ambush “You must vote for Kait!” y’all can give me if I’m going to stand a chance. Be ready.
In other news, I’m finally back to writing prose, after nothing for several days, plotting for two, a day of fresh prose on the new novella, and now yesterday back to DOTH. I did a full read-through to get myself back in the story and holy crap, I love this book. I mean seriously. Magic and horses and broody cowboys? What’s not to love?
I have to get on the road and continue to think ugly thoughts about my boss, who is still asleep in bed like sane, reasonable people.
