It's Thursday afternoon.
Apart from being a little windy on and off, today has been sunny and warmish. Spring has sprung.
The Boy Wonder and I went to town today so he could get a home theater system thingy. He seems delighted by it now that the thing works! Took some fiddling with and a phone call to the retailer.
I found myself at the stupidmarket while we were out, and miraculously came home with the ingredients for Rocky Road.
I shall make some tonight.
Today is a chocolate day. It's a chocolate day because I don't smoke. (and haven't done for 7 years now)
Some days I just need chocolate.
This morning a brand spanking new review was emailed to me. It's for TERRORBYTE. Which made me stupidly happy because I truly love that book.
It's also added hugely to any pressure I already felt to follow both KILLERBYTE and TERRORBYTE with something magnificent - it's quite frightening to discover someone who LOVES my work because that brings with it expectation.
Hence today is a chocolate day.
Tomorrow you all get to see the review.
So tell me... how do you handle the expectation of others?
