As Mondays go, today is not too bad (so far). Halfway through, and nothing dreadful yet. The Nebbish is out of town for a couple days (YAY!). That cheered me right up when I remembered. Most of the time I answer him as briefly and cheerlessly as I can. Anything else and he would take it as an invitation to hang around chatting. Because chat he does. Not very professional of me, perhaps, but you can only feign enjoyment of someone’s company so far. In this case, not at all.
Anyway, my Box of Ideas has been filling up over the weekend. Dang, this feels good! I’ve been getting ideas for stories for magazines that are openly seeking submissions, some with rapidly approaching deadlines so I need to get busy.
As you guys know, music is a pretty potent muse for me and I just got Nox Arcana’s new CD, Theater of Illusion. Ooo, ooky-spooky! The only thing I don’t care for are the talking tracks, the first one, “Abracadabra” and “Hypnos.” I find that stuff annoying and skip those. But the rest of it is good, and inspiring. You can hear some sample tracks on the Web site, if you’re interested. I had intended to bring it with me today, and of course left it at home. Argh! Oh well, I have photos and CDs of my other muse with me, so all is not lost.
Oh, and Chazz is getting up a book club over at Goodreads, if anyone is interested. First up, To Kill a Mockingbird.

Thanks for the advertising 🙂 Some interesting books picked for the club for the upcoming months, including; The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick then Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H. Lawrence.
And that album sounds really good, I will need to gt my hands on it.
You’re welcome 🙂 I may not make it through TKAM in time, but I’ll definitely join in for the PK Dick. I saw the DH Lawrence on the agenda… Hmmm 😉 ought to make for some interesting discussions!
Yeah i don’t think many people will read TKAM in time, but I’m really looking forward to the PK Dick book and hope DH Lawrence does make a bit of a splash 😀
