Sunny, clear, and HOT.  
This morning as I signed into LJ, I felt this wave of warmth and comfort one usually associates with homecomings. I've been on LJ for going on six years, now. I suppose in way, this is my online home. I love sipping my morning coffee as I scroll through my f-list. It's not just about fandoms, it's about wanting to know how dragonsinger's revisions are going, or what new adventure randomeliza is going on, or what experiences fatema is having in Bangladesh, to name just a few.

I miss you guys when I'm gone for awhile, as I have been lately, busy with writing and other RL things. Even when I'm only doing brief update posts, like this one, they make me feel more connected. How did we get on before this vast social network took over the world existed? I can't imagine my life without my 'online friends' in it.

I just wanted to say. Because I was so happy signing into my LJ this morning. :D {{HUGS ENTIRE F-LIST}}

Now, on to the writing update. I didn't get quite as many words as I'd hoped yesterday, but we all know how beginnings mess with me. I can feel the ball starting to roll, now. I expect great things today.

Also, it was a record breaking 107 here yesterday! You guys, the only other time I have been in 107 degree heat was that summer in Texas! We had a Texas temperature in green, wet Oregon yesterday! OMG!

Today's projected high is supposed to be slightly less, at 105. Dude, I am not built for this. Stop with the crazy heat wave, already!

I've been on LJ for most of my adult life--since I was 21, I think. That's almost 10 years.

I really can't imagine life without it, though I don't expect it'll be around forever.

I've probably missed an important post somewhere, but what is this novella that you're starting?

And, my revisions...aren't really going right now. But next month, I'm pulling it out and getting down to business.

Hey, Happy Birthday, btw! :)

The novella is set in the same universe as Nemesis (space pirates), and is due for submission to a Space Opera anthology on August 10th. So I'm writing it as quickly as I can!

Thank you.

Oh, cool! Go! Go! Go! You can so do it.:)
