I know it hasn’t really gotten cold here yet but the time change has happened and once again 5PM looks far to similar to 11PM for my taste. It also seems to have a drastic effect on my mood the older I get. I’m finding that I get much quieter and introspective and more annoyed and depressed even when I’m out and about. Now I’m sure this isn’t rare especially in a place like New England. As a matter of fact I know it isn’t rare since I’ve seen other friends on social media ask about the same things repeatedly in the last month or so.
I would love to be able to move to a warmer or sunnier climate, Hell I’d move out of the country if I had half a chance! That it seems is not in the cards any time soon and I know it’ll get worse when the actual cold and snow show up and all the yearly aches and pains that come along with being old and living in a cold climate. Then the real fun starts… not really.
Amazon not giving me my new release bump that they did with my last book and the not stellar sales of my new book haven’t helped with my mood either. Although, from what I’ve been told by the people that have read it is that they have liked it the best of all four of my books. Granted they may or may not be a bit biased but I hope not too much.
All of this, combined with the fact that I am starting to believe that I am half bear has led me to what seems like hibernation. So if I seem off lately I do apologize it is not intentional and nothing is really horribly wrong. I just seem to have come down with a case of the winter blahs a bit early this year is all.
On the plus side, all of this staying in has made me want to get more work done at least. Now if I could just stay awake long enough to do some, damn bear side!
If you read this and get a chance check out Strand book 1 “The Antilles” I hear it’s quite good!
Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving all!
