Bugs, Cheezits, writing, and no air conditioning

Our air conditioning has been on the fritz all season and we’ve been too cheap to kick in the $$$ for another one, even though it’s been one of the hottest summers on record. Funnily, however, it’s been okay. The nights are cool, and as long as we get those nice cool nights, we’re pretty comfortable. If I wanted to go all environmental and simply turn off the air conditioner altogether, I think I could do it. As a result of having the air conditioner shut off, we’ve had our windows open. That means we have more bugs in the house than usual. I found a cicada on the bedroom floor this morning. *has the willies*

Clearly, I don’t have much to blog about today.

I’m just sitting here, revising The Darkest Kiss and eating Cheezits (I luuurve Cheezits. They’re one of my guilty pleasures). For the record, TDK will be about 90k when it’s all finished. That means I’ve written about 60k on it for Sweaty Seventy (which haven’t been very good about updating lately). I need to get to 70k, since that’s the goal, but there’s still time! I have lots of other projects in play.

On October 1st, I’ll start Witch Heart (title subject to change). I’m really looking forward to writing this book.  I might even start early.

  1. Oh yikes!

    We don’t have AC either (I’m too cheap to cool the house for the 2 weeks a year we really need it) but I don’t think I could handle finding bugs in the bedroom. Eek.

    You need screens for your windows!


  2. Not sure if this will matter, But Keri Arthur’s upcoming Book 6 of her Riley Jenson series is also called The Darkest Kiss. Your publisher may not be aware of this, but you might want to change your title.

    Have a lovely day! :-)


  3. Seeley — We do have screens, but I think the bugs come in from our screened in porch. I leave the door open so that cats can go out there. The cats just aren’t doing their job very well. *g*

    Tez — I think I saw Gena Showalter has a book coming out with that title too. Popular recent title!
