there!, Hello

Grumpy Today...

Woke up from sequential nightmares (two nights of this and counting). Feel weary to the bone. Worse, I'm sniping and grumpy, today. Ugh.

I am increasingly repulsed by the subject matter of the book I'm working on now (a very dark fantasy-thriller type story spanning the years 1981-1989, combining and expanding my pseudonymously published Cave and the Vamp cycle of stories; I hit the 45k word mark, about halfway through the book and it currently looks like this is going to be a two-volume tale). They are delving into things that bother me, and the sense of fun that I got from originally writing the stories seems much diminished by paying wide-eyed attention to Consequences (a Life Lesson right there, I'm sure). Of late, I have also been grappling with the notion that I may very well be finished trying my hand at out-and-out horror. Is this just me being a grump? Probably the latter combined with a desire to Do Other Things right now.

Then again, I could be feeling black moods simply because my in-laws as well as my folks are coming to town this weekend.

One thing's for certain: it's hard to concentrate when my sleep-time is lousy.
