But you don’t have to be crazy-organized like me to feel it. Even if you haven’t started on the shopping yet, you can feel it coming. The days are shorter and cooler (or just downright cold this year!). The trees are becoming bare. The ads say hey, get ready because it’s coming. It’s on television, on the radio, on the Internet, and in your inbox. In fact, we do have one radio station already playing Christmas tunes all the time, but I haven’t had the heart to tune in for too long yet. It’s still just a bit too soon. It’s not time for turkey in the oven or trimming the tree, not just yet. But it sure isn’t summer anymore either, and it’s obvious that Halloween is weeks past! And so, we hang in limbo and wait. It almost feels like the calm before the storm, even if it’s a storm of celebration.
It will come. It always does, and it won’t be much longer. So take stock and get ready, because next week, Holiday Season 2014 opens – whether you’re ready or not!
I'll tell you one thing that isn't awkward: I have the concept for Book 2 of The Earthside Trilogy worked out! It came to me last night just before I fell asleep. Let me tell you; a virus is trouble whether it's biological or technological. And yes, the cyborgs are coming. Why? Because I want them to, that's why. And they're awesome. I don't have a title for Book 2 yet, but I have a feeling it will be coming soon.
That’s all today. Take care, and have a great weekend.
