Today is the first day of the rest of the week. Officially it was Sunday but that doesn’t count because everyone is home on Sunday.
So what does this have to do with Vampiring and Parenting? Absolutely nothing, except it is a school day, and we’re still Vampires (at least I am.)
I’ve taken some time out to write and finish up a book. Of course my brain suddenly filled with rust and sand. I have about 10 -20 pages to do some final touches on and I’m done.
This book has nothing to do with Vampires or this blog. There is no fantasy or paranormal creatures in it. No Werewolves lurk in the pages under a full moon.
It starts like this:
All of us Hobbs kids were exceptional liars, except my brother Jordan who was a liar by default by his refusal to tell either lies or the truth. There were seven of us. Jordan was the youngest and had no discernible personality or identifying character traits except for his unusual refusal to talk, unless it was to speak about his love of the Lord and his belief that our brother Steve, now deceased, would soon come back as an avenging angel.
The book goes on for another 300-400 pages. I’ll let you know when I’m done.
I hear rumors of cooler weather, which means something under 90F. I’m not holding my breath. Really, I’m not holding my breath.
In the book there are parts where the characters think back to the past. Not much, but they do from time to time. OK only the main character does because it is written in first person.
I mention that because today, while I was doing busy work and driving I was thinking about things that happened a long time ago. All of the dusty drawers in my brain were being pried open by some unknown force.
What was odd was that I suddenly saw people not from my younger inexperienced self but as I am now. How odd to look back with a rational view of things without the drama or emotion. When one looks at experiences without emotional attachment is like seeing a whole different movie. It really is.
Now you’re wondering what my story is but that is another blog post. Just read the other story and let me know if you’d read that book.
In the meantime I have to get creative.
