While the cat’s away…

So, Eric’s on his way to Nebraska to visit family and, due to my earlier trip and other circumstances, I’m not. Yup, I’ve got the place to myself for close to two weeks. Back in May, when Eric’s trip was scheduled for June, I was excited. Now, I’m a touch more anxious. The weather is hotter and the world is quieter. And I have a full slate of things to do. Gone are the visions of me "vacationing" while Eric’s gone.

Health-wise, my cough is gone. Until the sun sets. I had another miserable night of coughing instead of sleeping. I managed a few hours on the couch.  Maybe tonight will be better. Regardless, I need to workout tomorrow. There was no disc this morning; it’s been a week since I’ve done anything.

Eric and I have continued talking about Luck for Hire. I’m going to start writing some vignettes. The plan is: I write things, things that will probably be wrong in the context of the world we’re trying to build. Eric will critique them. If there’s hope for the piece at that point, I’ll do a rewrite and they’ll probably get posted here as #FridayFlash. Which means, the first vignette is due tomorrow at 6-7pm AZ time. Eric will bounce it back to me that evening or Friday morning. It’s good to have a deadline, but also a little scary. Our last few projects have been very start-stop. Do I still know how to do this?
