It's been a week of +33 degrees C (91 F) heat and it is doing nothing for my word count. With humidity, it feels like 45 C (113 F).

My little office on the second floor is an oven. We don't have central air, nor do we own a window or portable air conditioner. I wake up nekkid, having somehow melted out of my pj's and reformed outside of them like the T-1000 if he wanted to shimmy out of his boxers. We have two fans going at night to keep us from dying, but it's been a rough week.
On the other hand, I've been going to sleep earlier just to avoid being conscious while it's so hot. So I guess it must be balancing out...
Quick updates:
I sent a partial for Her Cinderella Secret to the Champagne Rose line at Red Rose Publishing.
Still no word back about Fighting for Her Love v. 2.0.
Focus has been on The Ghost of Pense lately. I'll get back to my Desire book when I know where it's going.
Oh, also, I should mention that the wedding went well. It was the happiest blur of my life.
Here's a picture that pretty much sums it up:

Yes, those are Stormtroopers. My older sister arranged for them as a surprise at the ceremony and reception. My dream came true.
And in case there was any doubt about how nerdy I was, for the record, we got the officiant to declare us husband and wife in these exact words:

Therefore, by the authority vested in me by the Province of Ontario and the Marriage Act, and by the Power of Grayskull, it is my honour and delight to pronounce you legally married. Live long and prosper, May the Force be with you, so say we all.

That's her attempting the Vulcan Live Long and Prosper hand sign. Not quiiiiiite there...but good enough. 8 )

    You guys look SO CUTE together! Too bad you're competing with stormtroopers for visual attention....

    And I lurve your line '...the happiest blur of my life...' and am dying of envy that I didn't think of it sooner to put it in an MS

    What does Mr. Essex think about your writerly ambitions?

    I doubt Mr. Essex will ever read any of my books...but I don't expect him to. He gets my stream of consciousness storytelling day in and day out anyhow. Plus, he's my go-to guy when I need to work out GMC and male perspective, as well as acting as my human wikipedia 8 )

    THAT is an amazing wedding. Holy buttcakes, I am so jealous. I feel like a poser of a geek nerd. I could code for hours and it would not make me nerdy enough to be worth the awesomeness.

    That said, I hope your audience yelled out "So say we all" back at you!
