On Fire

Quote Du Jour:
“Bring it on. I prefer a straight fight to all this sneaking around.”
–Han Solo, Star Wars (Episode IV)

I should be tired today, but I’m not. My brain was on overload when I tried to go to sleep last night.

A situation arose at the office yesterday and, without going in to detail, suffice it to say there were potentially slanderous comments made to me. I refuse to sit by while some pompous jackass disparages my work ethic. I’m damn good at what I do and I always get my work done. And besides that, I will not sit by while he tries to go around the system, simply because he doesn’t like a certain someone and doesn’t want to work with that someone.

I worked for the Boss From Hell for two years. I’m not going through this again. I’m not going to sit idly by while I get pushed around and dumped on. F-that.

I talked with a trusted friend and got some advice. I took action this morning. Let the chips fall where they may. I’m not some bimbo that will sit here and take. I’m a hot-head with a backbone. 😉

I guess I’m still riled up about it.

I was last night too. So much so that I wrote FOUR issues of the romance serial in about an hour. The brain was flying and my fingers could barely keep up. And I type 100 wpm. Funny, because I couldn’t get myself to write the romance for anything in the world earlier this week.

And then I got on the phone and yakked for about an hour. 🙂

Made some more edits on the WIP and got about 2000 words total on it yesterday. I’m up to 27,256 now. I feel very close to this story as well as the characters. They have really developed a life of their own and it’s exciting.

    You have to stand up for yourself, because no one else will.

    Good luck.
