Five Thing Thursday: December 26th.

Welcome, everyone to another installment of Five Thing Thursday and…

Here are Five Things I want you to Know:

Thing #1: I am *So* sleeping in today.

Thing #2: QUEEN’S WILL update: I’m about 6-6.5 thousand words into the first draft. I’m closing in on the magic 10K number which will then become (after polishing and feedback) the written portion of my Taos Toolbox application .

Thing #3: The next edition of the Sparks from the Forge newsletter will be going live on January 1st. Start off the year with news about where I’m at and what I’m doing. You can sign up via the finely-crafted link at the top of the page.

Thing #4: This Week’s Audio Landscape has been brought to you by… Unleash the Archers.

Thing #5: This coming year (and this thing may have been influenced by the current musical selection as I’m drafting this post) I want you (and, by “You” I mean “Me”) to challenge yourself to to take those things that bring you joy and turn the volume up as loud as you can go, as often as you can.

I realize that you can’t be “Up to 11” all day, every day, but there are those sweet times when you need to crank the volume up and Rock. Out. Loud.


What am  I reading this week?

The Vagrant, by Peter Newman

Grimspace (Sirantha Jax #1) by Ann Aguirre

How have I been relaxing and refilling the well? I saw Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker the night it opened. No spoilers, but I really dug it. Outside of that, I’m off work for the remainder of the year – relaxing and thinking ahead to 2020.
