yesterday I had a long whine about the lack of rain, and what happens today? It rains! Maybe I should whine a bit more often :)

Of course, as lovely as this rain is (and it's been raining steadily for three hours now), it's not drought breaking. No where near it. We'd probably need months of rain like this to ease the situation--and just watch, if that happened we'd all be whining again :). But at least it's enough to give the trees a bit of a drink, and maybe help them survive.

And it is lovely to sit here in my office, and listen to the sound of the rain on our tin roof. There's nothing like writing to the music of rain :)

Speaking of writing--I finally hit the 100 page mark yesterday, so I am officially a quarter of the way through the sixth Riley (which has the working title of The Taste of Death). The novel continues to curve away from what I'd originally planned, but it's all good. For example, the scene I wrote yesterday. Originally, I was intending to have a secondary plot line about a rogue vampire revenge-killing gay men. It's now morphed into a rogue vampire going after men who seem to have no common link except one--they all know the same man. But is he the reason they're being killed? You know things are never that simple :) I'm now in the middle of a scene where Riley is meeting her first female vampire boss. I think it's going to be an interesting meeting!

Living in Arizona most of my life, I got use to there being very little rain. Now in California, it seems like that is all there is for a month or two out of the year. I'm not complaining, I just wish it didn't rain so hard on the days I have to go out in it. The one thing that drives me nuts is having the bottom of my pants wet. It's always cold and to have them brushing against the back of my legs... not a pleasant feeling to me.

For some reason your post reminded me of the 4th of July in Seattle. Strange how words can spark a memory.

Happy Writing.
