to be warmer than normal here in the valley of the sun. Christmas day is forecasted to be 78 degrees. Not bad.
I learned yesterday that the insurance adjustor hadn’t visited the body shop to evaluate the aditional damage they found, so they haven’t even started working on my truck. That means, I’m stuck driving the little Kia deathtrap until at the earliest, Wednesday. The thing is so small it feels like my rear is going to scrape on the pavement. I’ll be glad to get my truck back.
I finished the first draft of the story I had tentitively called Casino, renaming it to The Adjoa Gambit, but I wasn’t happy with the result and decided to back burner it for a while. I started a story yesterday that has been coming to me for a while. I’m hoping to finish it in time to submit to the Q1 period for the 2006 Writers of the Future contest, but that window closes on the 31st. I got 1500 words done yesterday, and it’s coming out easily, so there may be hope if I don’t need too much revision. No word from my Q4 2005 entry yet.
