UNQUIET Update – April 25

The title of the new book and series is official. Book one is UNQUIET. The series is UNQUIET SERIES.

Things are very unquiet. I wish I could muffle these voices for a few hours at night for some kind of reprieve. Two mornings in a row I woke up with severe jaw pain from grinding my teeth. I knocked out about 2,000 words yesterday and woke up today with no pain. Coincidence? No. I blame these characters and all the unquiet. Today I hope to do another 2,000, if anything to save my teeth.

And again, I have new distractions in the household. Rescued feeder rats now living in a three-story rat condo with access to daily snacks of Cheerios and Cheez-Its. They know they are surrounded by predators, but one of them chooses to snooze the day away anyway, and the other has decided to spend all her time on the top level TEMPTING THEM.

Here’s the dog as she watches them and imagines what they taste like.

Here’s the dog after being told, “No, you can not eat the rats.”

The cats are so crazed from temptation that they refuse to be photographed.
