Today ran by fast

I spent the morning doing a lot of outlining work for a short story I’m working on. It’s set in Faith Hunter’s Rogue Mage world (awesome books, btw, if you’ve not read them), and so this requires me to do a lot of research in the world and making sure that I can write the story I want and that I stay within the already designed confines of the world. I figured out a lot of great stuff today and I have a strong idea of most of the story. I hope to write many words tomorrow.

Have you ever gone shopping and bought clothing that you had to take back because it smelled? I bought these jeans that I really liked. But they had a chemical smell to them. I washed them twice, and the smell didn’t even abate a little. That meant I had to take them back today. I suppose it’s good shorts weather is almost here.

Tomorrow I also plan to start some seeds. I haven’t prepared the garden yet, so I’ll get the seeds started now and plant in the ground in a couple weeks.

I’ve been doing a series of posts on Magical Words about self-publishing. Today I talked about choosing covers.

    I love the rogue mage series. I’ll look forward to reading your story.

    Yes, I’ve had trouble with clothing that stinks. I’m chemically sensitive, and that makes it really hard. I bought some Jockey underwear a few years ago and it reeked of perfume. No amount of washing with baking soda, bleach or vinegar helped. More recently I ran into another new item, that had picked up a chemical smell. I dread even putting these things in my washer because it can move the scent to all the rest of my clothes. I tossed in some borax, and wow! It totally got rid of the stench.
