The rain is just beating down on our roof right now and I must admit people, I am feeling like writing. It is something about the sound of the rain that just gets to me. It calms me and the writing juices flow. I guess I like the rain weather here, because tomorrow the sun will be shining bright again and there would be no traces that it had been dark and gloomy the day before, as if the rain had never happened. So no matter how much it rains, you are guaranteed that the sun will shine again soon and brightly at that.

These are the last 11 days until my contract expires with my literary agent and until I can say what is and has truly been on my mind for a while. I have asked her to withdraw my manuscript from the entire submission process, so now I am just waiting out my contract.

My colleague, the one who doesn't like me, has been offered a transfer. It is a better position with a better chance of advancement in the future and she accepted the offer. She will be leaving next month and then there is the prospect of my boss needing to replace her with someone else. I am still looking for another job too. The company I work for is just...lets just say we have different ideas of what is right and wrong. The sooner I find something else the better. I actually did apply for a new job today, but a lot of people applied for it, so we'll see.


  1. I hope you find the perfect job, Murees. I'm sure you'll find it because things happen for a reason and they happen at the right time. Good job with your writing and making use of the rainy weather.

  2. I like the rain, too, as long as it's not accompanied by thunder and lightning (it scares my dog. It's raining right now, as a matter of fact, and I'm considering doing some writing. =)

    Best of luck with your job hunt.

  3. Yeay! You're almost free to get that story out there. Sorry it was such a bad experience. But now you're empowered.

    And you're going to find an awesome job with morals that coincide with yours!

  4. hope you get the job you love honey..

    M.J. - Thank you, you are always so kind!. I hate the thunder storms too. Last weekend I had to spend most of the morning comforting my dogs, because they don't like the thunder either.

    Katie - Thank you and you are just so nice and kind and I am grateful.
