It's Too Hot!
We've had over thirty days of triple digit heat. There have been twelve heat-related deaths during this heat wave. A police dog even died locked up in a police car; her handler forgot to put her in her kennel. Worse yet, there are no charges against the officer. There is no rain in the forecast. And I am having a hard time blogging or writing these days. My poor apartment A/C can only do so much in the high humidity and I think I've invested half my life savings in popsicles in the past two weeks. I'm getting a lot of reading done, though, hanging out in bed in a tank top and shorts under the fan. My cats are loving it. They hate getting out of bed.
If I could have just one day of rain, I think my brain could cool off and I could write. I have a couple of short stories I'm working on right now and a novel to get started on. Wish me luck ... Hope my keyboard doesn't melt.
Happy writing and happy reading to all!
