I didn’t make my ROW80 goals this week. I haven’t done (hardly) any planning on Immortal Blood. I think I’ve edited one paragraph. Even Viho has shut his muzzle. I haven’t been delighted by his snark for at least three days. So, I’ve been floating in limbo.
Being in limbo might not be a bad thing, though. Final exams started yesterday, and I’ve had a bunch of panicking students for the past week. That won’t end until Monday. After that, though, I have four weeks of (relatively) uninterrupted bliss to see what kind of mischief my friends have been able to create while I’ve been away. I think I’m actually looking forward to a different kind of frenzy.
Because it’s WIPWednesday, I’m going to put up 7 sentences of “Fireheart” continuing where it left off (I think it was last week).
“Perhaps. But he won’t be the Consort for a long while. Not until I’m dead, so I’m not going to worry overmuch about it,” Mikhail said. “I’m sure Alizaane will keep him in line. And if not, then Kiah will be more than happy to do it. Most saziks don’t get along very well with spouses of their chosen bonded. Kiah is more intelligent than most…and more haughty.”
(Sazik is the Tibetan word for “snow leopard.”) Kiah, bless his furry heart, is much, much bigger than a terrestrial sazik. And more protective. Not to mention vicioius. Nothing will hurt Alizaane as long as he’s alive.
See you Sunday. Hopefully with more good things to tell you.
