Rain and Stories

There is a connection. At least in my mind. Or it could be that I just didn't want to do two separate posts. *smirk*

Kansas is known for things like Oz, and prairies, and the origin of the Winchesters, and... weather. Rain and wind and rain and wind and some more rain. Seriously? The days have been sauna-like with the wind being our only solace and the nights a dark terror with the wind our nemesis. To explain it better, I give you, the curious dead person:

A curious fellow died one day and found himself waiting in the long line of judgment.

As he stood there he noticed that some souls were allowed to march right through the pearly gates into Heaven.

Others though, were led over to Satan who threw them into the burning fire.  But every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into
the fire, Satan would toss a soul off to one side into a small pile. After watching Satan do this several times, the fellow's curiosity got the best of him.

So he strolled over and asked Satan what he was doing.

"Excuse me, Prince of Darkness," he said. "I'm waiting in line for Judgment, but I couldn't help wondering. Why are you tossing those people aside instead of flinging them into the Fires of Hell with the others?"

"Oh those . ." Satan groaned. "They're all from Kansas. They're still too wet to burn."

I've finished the first chapter of my next WIP, "Hear No Evil."

However, I'm leaving next week for our first vacation with Mo Chuisle. We're taking her to San Diego, CA. To have lunch with Shamoo and see the Pacific. Kansas babies need to see the ocean. Just to remind them of how vast and amazing the world is. I am really looking forward to "unplugging" from work for a week, seeing her little eyes take in the differences we're going to show her. She's not quite two, so she won't really remember this -- but we will. And we'll show her pictures.

Anyway, I told you all that to tell you that I'm hesitant about posting the first chapter now because I don't want to put more than two weeks between chapters if I can help it. I've started chapter 2, but I don't know how much writing time I'll get next week. SO! I am going to post next Wednesday or Thursday to buy some time with the writing of the 2nd chapter.

I hope to see you -- it will be the first WIP I'll be posting on LJ (along with and and I'm really curious what the experience will be like.

Here's to a weekend of light and laughter followed by a week of luck. I know we could all use it.
