Kharma, Thou Art Heartless

Losing a job sucks, especially contract positions that promise to end on a certain date.  You do the work plus extra that is needed, happy bosses smile, everyone loves the output, then you get shafted.  My husband was informed yesterday he has no job after this Friday, five weeks earlier than he we expected.  He had already updated his resume and put in a few applications to other companies. (fingers & toes crossed for good news soon!)

On to brighter things.  Editing is slow but steady.  I'm working on several projects, the main one being a story I finished eleven years ago and that took four years to write.  I still love this story and the SciFi/futuristic universe, and I want to continue creating stories here.

I also started another paranormal series two years ago about a fictitious town in Texas with Scottish Highlanders which I hope to get back to next year. (No, I won't reveal how the Highlanders got to Texas yet.)  I want to do NaNo this year too.  Last year I started but had to drop out due to time restraints.  I'll be better this year.

What else?  Not much accept... next week school begins!

Writing tip: play with unexpected occurrences to add spice to the plot and character development.  It can add conflict, dimension to characters, and interest to scenes.
