A Day Late and Dollars Short

This should have been posted yesterday, but I forgot what day it was. In fact, on Sunday I still thought it was Saturday. So, I lost a day somewhere.

If you find that missing day, please let me have it back. Iโ€™m missing it terribly. ๐Ÿ˜‰

As for the mislaid dollars, well my brother did give me some money. However, his version of money is limited โ€“ by some camel with a needle aversion. I canโ€™t really complain as I got enough to cover Christmas, or whatever holiday we choose to celebrate in wet and windy Wales.

As I warned my not-so-wise sibling, the price of everything is going up, and January will probably bring bigger price-hikes. Meridian, the place we are trying to move to, just got voted the Best Place to Live in America, ย byย 24/7 Wall St., an online financial news corporation. Already, suitable wheelchair-accessible houses are selling within 48 hours of going on the market. And the price will have a knock-on effect in the Treasure Valley area.

His excuses for not advancing the money to buy, are getting lamer every time we talk. The property to finance this has sold, for a considerable amount โ€“ millions โ€“ and my share covers my requests, and more. But he can always justify dragging his knuckles.

Maybe, after Christmas, there might be real news โ€“ or NOT.

There are also things missing on the writing front. Not exactly days โ€“ although the timeline of the story is a challenge โ€“ nor dollars, or pounds; could do with the Royalties though. Instead, having been a 2015 NaNoWriMo winner, the wheels are spinning.

I was working to an outline, but then I killed off a second character. Now, my detectives are all over the place, searching for evidence and scenes. Which means that the outline has to be re-thought before the Chief Constable closes down the investigation, and Iโ€™m left with a cold case. Or should that be a cold novel?

So great is my stressed-out confusion, that Iโ€™ve even re-installed Scrivener, believing that I missed a trick or two by abandoning it. Well, it did lose another novel โ€“ but I had an RTF backup for that.

Rant over. Off to plot another brutal murder โ€“ MUAHAHAHAHA.
