Ju-ly, Ju-ly, Ju-ly-y-y-y, It never seemed so strange…

Well, we’re smack dab in the middle of summer, now. Temps have been rising horribly into the hundred-teens, and I’m getting cranky. Especially when I realize that 1) There’s three and a half to four more months of this, and 2) Billions of people across the planet live surrounded by trees and green growing things and can be outside during the summer without the flesh peeling off their bones and their inner organs gasping and dying like a bunch of shriveled-up raisins.

Not that I’m complaining or anything.

Okay, not much.

But really. It’s HOT here. I mean, seriously! I tried to take a cold shower the other day, and there wasn’t any cold water. If that’s not bad, I don’t know what is.

And now for an update on all things novel related:

  • As of last night, I have twelve rejections, eight outstanding queries, and one request for a full (which is a MAJOR yayyy! but doesn’t necessarily mean anything).
  • Editing on The Fire in the Glass is going absolutely terrible. I’m very disheartened.
  • Re-reading The Rose Queen and thinking it might be possible to fix after all…

And that’s it.

Guess I’ll blame the heat for my increased levels of inactivity.

Dang heat.
