It's December which means Christmas is around the corner.
It's been a little warm for December I think. It's been in the mid sixties. I know after I say that though the temperature will drop.
The house is beginning to show its age I think. We had to replace the hot water heater because it leaked. The repair man said once it starts leaking there's nothing to do but replace it. It was a costly chore, but I don't have to worry about it for another few years at least. I think the next thing to be replace would the AC. It's about ten years old and sits out there in the heat, wind, rain, and hasn't been serviced yet. Come to think of it, I don't remember the one at my childhood being serviced or maintained either for that matter.
I entered a writing contest. The prize being virtual applause. I didn't win for one reason. The story wasn't meant to be a romance story. It's an urban tale with romance elements. I was sorta talk into entering anyway and while it sounds like a good excuse, in the end, I let myself get talked into entering. Eh. Such as life. I have fun writing and that's the important thing.
Since the last post, I've written a couple more stories and deleted a couple stories along the way as well. I started writing short stories and my first submittal will be this month. I worked on that one so I hope it'll be accepted. It's sort of a twist on the tale of Shangri-La.
To any reader out there, Happy Holidays to you and yours.
