It's the middle of the week... already!

It looks pretty dark out there today. I think it might rain. Not sure, though, because it looked pretty much the same yesterday and the sun made a few appearances.

You know, I personally don't mind walking in the rain. Of course, if it's pouring, it can be a little (or a lot) annoying... but mostly, I find it very refreshing. But I have to be walking on my own. It's a total pain if it's raining and I've got my daughter with me. I worry about her catching a cold or something.

Speaking of my daughter, she's been home with me all week. So far, it's been going pretty well. She does her own thing for a while in the afternoon just after the hubby leaves for work, and I get a chance to catch up on all my internet stuff. Then we go for a nice walk and get back to do something together. I think she likes that. I've had to alter my writing time. Instead of squeezing some in during the day, I now find myself writing mostly after she's tucked into bed.

At the moment, I'm working on a zombie story. I got up to 6,214 words last night and would love to wrap it up tonight. I know where it's going to lead me. No happy endings in this one, but I think it'll end up being a suspenseful, horror tale. Which is exactly what I'm aiming for. :) Lots of violent stuff has happened already and I re-read it from the beginning last night because I wanted to change a few things.

I was originally going to write in the POV of a teenage girl, but when I decided to change the timeline, I had to change her age too. The direction of the whole story kinda changed then too. I'm much happier with it. Although she thought she may have reached safety, she'll be off again very soon. And you know, writing this story has given me a few other zombie/apocalyptic story ideas. For longer stories. I want this one to be a shortie.

Anyway, just thought I'd check in now because I've got some stuff I need to take care of later. Nothing exciting, just some other online stuff, walking and going to the post office. Again. I seem to be sending something almost everyday now. :)

Have a great one!
