Not much time to post. It's 4pm, and I've still got to feed the horses, fix dinner, take a shower and drive 30 miles to work by 6:45. It's supposed to start freezing rain or some such crap this afternoon and then warm up and just rain. At least, that's the last report I heard on the way home this morning.
Things really slacked off in the ICU while I was off. We went from full capacity down to 2 in one day. That's the way it is in our unit: you just never know how it will be from day to day, which is why staffing is such a bitch. We had 4 nurses and a monitor tech scheduled last night, and three of them stayed home. Wish I had been one of them because I could certainly use the time!
I did get some reading done on Outcast. I hope all you third person people like it, because if you don't, it's going to be really hard to go back to first. Plots become much more involved in third and I will admit that it's fun to hop from one part of the galaxy to another with the turn of a page.
I'm still letting the sixth book in the CSC series rattle around in my head, trying out different characters and situations. I haven't completely settled on the personality for my heroine in this one,either. She's one of the very few female Zetithians left alive and was orphaned during the war as a child. As a result, she's younger than her hero, Trag. Not sure how I'll deal with that. He might see her as a cute kid or a hot babe; it's hard to say. Will she see him as a seductive sweetie or someone she can't stand? Don't know. Most of the time, these things come out when I'm writing and then the story takes a twist even I don't expect.
I'll keep you posted on my progress, but I gotta go right now, the ponies are waiting for me. But before I rush off, here's a little something to warm you up on a cold, dark night.
Good thing I have a ready supply of these, huh?
