Reading progress update: I've read 201 out of 256 pages.
Some Must Watch - Ethel Lina White

at this point, the whole scenario has this lovable absurdity to it. shall wrap this up tomorrow morning before work, most likely. it's running about 3.5 in the ratings game, but that could take a wild swing, up or down, by the time I'm done. crazy book.

the style--including the oddball dialogue--is not my favorite way someone can choose to tell a story...but I love the story itself, the tension, the creepiness, and I'm really enjoying it overall. I have a suspicion about who the psycho-killer is, so I hope I'm wrong, cuz the book will dazzle more if I get some surprises towards the end. I like it.

I think Helen should just get the heck outta there. ("What, Tigus--and have all that foreshadowing be for nothing?!")

reminds me a bit of the Mary Roberts Rinehart books I've read. and it looks like this particular dark and stormy night is going to go on and on. I wonder who will see daylight.

Taxes and stuff -- and 43,025

In amongst everything else, I put together my tax returns the past couple of days.  There weren't any surprises, because I've kept my bookkeeping up to date.  I knew my liability was going to be modest, with no panic at the last minute.  All I have left to do is make copies for my files, then seal the forms and check in an envelope to drop in the mail tomorrow.

 

Yay!

 

My studio is still a complete and total disaster, but I did get some time on the rock saw, and slightly diminished the inventory.  (We're talkin' a dozen or two rocks out of thousands, so it's not a whole lot.)  The slices from Friday and Saturday are cleaned up and the first batch is in the tumbler.  More will be started in the next few days.  If the weather cooperates, I may even get more time on the saw later this week.  This will be a good thing.

 

Depending on how many I end up with, the stones will basically take most of the summer to process.  I already have lots of other stones to work on over the next six months before the 2018-19 show season, so that will keep me busy building inventory.

 

Having finished my taxes, I have a really clear picture of my 2017 income -- as well as 2016 -- vis a vis both the jewelry and art shows on one hand, and my writing on the other hand.   Bottom line is I need to write more.

 

Bottom line really is I want to write more. 

 

I never seem to have time to read, let alone write.  When I read, I write.  I think I've written that more than once in the past, but it's true.  It's like a priming of the pump or something.  But the past several months especially, I haven't been able to gather sufficient reading time.  All those books on my "currently reading" wall?  For the most part, I'm still currently reading them.  I just can't find the time to finish . . . anything.

 

That has to stop.  And it has to stop now.

 

The Secrets of White Apple Tree Farm is currently at 43,025 words.  I have more in hand-written scribblings that I need to transcribe, but I have no idea at all how much is there.  There have been many nights when I've lain in bed and thought through some of the the plot lines, but can't find the time to write them down.  Are they forgotten?  No, they're cemented in my imagination, waiting for time/energy/discipline.

 

I want to write this book.  I want to write this book NOW.
