Mid afternoon yesterday the call I'd been waiting for finally came. Do you know how many minutes there were between 6am when I got up yesterday morning and mid afternoon. Let me tell you there's a lot of minutes. The call was to say they were doing reference checks for the role I applied for.
Then I had an indeterminable amount of time waiting for them to call me back with an offer. I know my references are good, but nothing is sure until it's confirmed. I wanted to ring someone, tell someone - but what's to say until I have a rock solid offer.
I felt like an excited two year old the night before Christmas.
All of my research that I was doing for the book I'm currently writing just ground to a halt, my brain refused to think as I waited and waited and waited.
So on a total different tangent, a question as I wait... angel or gypsy - which would be your preferred female character in a romance novel. I've done the contemporary genre and now I want a mix of contemporary and the unexplained but I'm torn between both. There's probably a fancy genre name for it no doubt, but lets face it I can make it whatever I want it to be.
I want to write something a little bit different and by no means do I want to go the vampire or shape shifter storyline, they've both been done to death - literally. I've started writing and there's an element of magic in the storyline but I don't want to overdo it and I need to understand where it (the magic) is coming from.

(because honestly I didn't sit here for a hours waiting for the call to come so I could conclude this post - especially being that it didn't come till late this afternoon, because you do want to know don't you?)
So yes, I got the job - woohoo, now I just have to wait for the paperwork and the finalised details. Onward and upward to new challenges.
