Something New

Head to the grindstone, working hard to keep the ball rolling at work and with my writing. I can't shake the feeling that something big is about to change in my life. In fact, at this point it's more than just a feeling, it's a certainty. I'm not sure what it will be, but I've had this constant feeling of expectation for months now and I'm really excited to find out why.

I guess that might sound a little strange -- but life's always been like that for me. I'm sure there are many others who can relate to it when I say that there are times in your life when you know something is coming -- a tightness in your gut, there for no real reason, one that won't go away. Whatever it is, good or bad, I'm waiting. Come on, already-- let's do this!

I've been working on a slightly different project than the majority of my other books, an end-of-the-world apocalypse scenario. I know... *yawn* right? There are a ton of them out there, I understand. I'd like to think mine's different than most of them, though. In the same way that the Walking Dead focuses more about the people and their personal struggles than the zombies that surround them, I'm zeroing in on a group of characters for mine, really exploring who they are and how they're coping with tragedy on such a mass scale, how they're reacting to losing everything and what they do to try and regain a sense of control in their lives again... all the while trying to deal with an outside threat. I'm about 75% of the way through the first draft, and I like where it's going so far. My editor says this is "the one"... we'll see,
