Can't trust that day. Monday, Monday. Sometimes it just turns out that way.
Amen, Denny, John, Michelle, & Cass (that's The Mamas and The Papas for those of you not paying attention). This day began crazy for me. Little Man didn't sleep worth a flip. Which meant Momma lost major amounts of sleep. Which meant Momma did not write as she should have. Which mean Momma went to work in a poo-poo mood.
Totally not a good thing for a Monday morning when you work at a courthouse and the first two handfuls of people who walk in are tattooed criminals with bench warrants who need to be added to the docket.
Boy, that was a mouthful, wasn't it?
The day started looking up, however, when...
One of our young summer workers--the same talented person who created the very first fan art for my WIP, Displacement--gave me this:
|Hogwarts, Slytherin House Beaded Cuff|
Made it over the weekend while watching her BF play video games. I know, right? If I even attempted something this complex, I'd end up with a big plop of colorful nothing.
Then, I snuck in a little writing. Shhh! Don't tell anyone! I'm about to begin Chapter 6 and am totally excited. These characters have already burrowed into my every waking thought, a truth as scary as it is wonderfully delicious. Dontcha just love it when the voices in your head have nice, snappy dialogue? Me, too!
At lunch, I headed next door to the library to check out this book:
And also ended up with this book:
Which I've decided to read first just because I like the dog on the cover. Valid reason, right? Plus, it features a Barry Lyga gush on the back--"Paul Griffin takes risks other authors never even contemplate. Stay With Me is beautiful and horrifying and bittersweet in the best way possible."--and since I love, love Barry (see my review of Boy Toy here), I figured, "Why not?"
How was your Monday, Monday? Do anything or read anything interesting?
Peace, Love, and Junior Mints,
