It’s a busy time of year as an adult, but I have to admit that it’s still exciting. It actually started for me three weeks ago, when I had my business trip that successfully combined into a vacation in Washington D.D. My final “big” meetings of the year are usually in mid-October (they were this week), which usually gives way to more routine administrative work through the rest of the year. The final quarter of the year is also huge for book releases and sales – it’s when I usually make the most in royalties, so the writing life is exciting too. This year is no exception. It started on October 1 with the release of Night Life Paranormal Stories and continue as I release Obsidian (I’m aiming for a Halloween release date) and the Short and Happy (or Not) – An International Anthology of Stories on November 1. Then I volunteer for our church Share Our Stuff (SOS) event on November 8, there’s the Christmas Craft show in mid-November, and off through the holidays. Plus, fall weather is the best around here, and it’s college football season.
It looks like fall is just as exciting for adults as it is for kids, albeit for different reasons. And that’s interesting, because maybe things don’t change as much as we think they do after all. Yes, you have that whole being responsible thing going on, and it is different when you go from experiencing the magic to making it happen, but even that can be more fun when there are good things going on. It’s something interesting to think about.
That’s all today. Take care. Have a Happy Friday tomorrow and a wonderful weekend.
