Busy but productive day.
It’s amazing how much you can get done when you get your way.
After resolving the challenge of having my vision in a way that isn’t bloat and a nightmare to administrate…
I have the Author’s Note, Introduction, and About the Book for the current project ready to go.
I also have a book cover sketched out.
Once the cover is complete I will put up a landing page complete with the above sections available to readers.
So you get an idea what all the fuss is about.
Happy with the day’s accomplishments I folded laundry before making for my desk only to find the Castle Mascot looking a little down.
Initially thinking he was mad because I didn’t give him his arugula I did so then made for the desk.
How it fell to me when he isn’t my pet is a whole other story…
I think it was a conspiracy by certain members of the household who seem to think I needed a hobby.**
When that didn’t work I decided to try an oldie and potentially goodie.
And not just any music – Gyro’s fav’s!
80s and New Wave/Synth.
I sat down and quickly pulled together music from compilations and other sources I knew.
From high school!
Bette Davis Eyes kicked off the list.
No, not male which are his favorites, but a husky voice and plenty of synth.
He immediately turned to the sound of the music.
While I have a preference for heavy metal
AC/DC, Krokus, Judas Priest, Alice Cooper, et al
I do like plenty of 80s/New Wave
Men at Work, Rockwell, Big Country, Eurythmics, et al
I tolerate Spandeau Ballet – his absolute fav based on his behavior – but otherwise like most of what he likes.
Including the currently playing Eddie Grant’s Electric Avenue.
He LOVES this one!
I just realized as I was typing – I need to add the Cars.
He dances to them.
With any luck I’ll have the landing page for the upcoming project available within a day or two.
** I have a hobby. It’s called reading.
Note: By the time Rockwell’s Somebody’s Watching Me was finishing? He’d turned his entire body toward the source of the music – my iPhone in the kitchen. It is fun – and sweet – to watch his behavior change when this music is on.
