No the title isn’t a mistake. I did not make a grammatical error. I said what I said and I stand by what I said. I don’t remember what movie that last sentence, wait I do remember what movie that last sentence came from. The movie McLintock with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara from 1963.
Anyway to the point. I’m bad about that, have you noticed. I start out to say one thing and the next thing you know I’m off on some crazy track that doesn’t go anywhere near what I originally intended. Here I go again. I have to wonder how I ever get anything done. This little quirk of mine does come in handy at times. For almost a year now I’ve been wearing many hats, hell I been doing that pretty much all my life. I’ve had to flip flop from one thing to another at the speed of light and stop and turn around on a dime. Often this comes with all kinds of interruptions to the interruptions of the interruptions with distractions to the distractions, wait, what was that you said honey, to the distractions. Right now my hubby, God love him, has an old rerun of a rerun of an old country music group with the sound just a touch, we’re talking sonic boom, to high and I’m trying to concentrate on what I’m doing. Yeah right.
Anyway back to my point, I did have a point, I think I had a point to all this…What was it now? I know, I was about to share some cute little tidbit of wisdom. OK, Maybe not wisdom but merely an observation relating to my life.
Oh I remember now. It has to do with the picture I am posting with this. The image says it all I think and if not…
Rather cryptic sounding isn’t it. Soon it will be done. No other explanation in the title just those five little words. Depending on how you emphasize it, it can take on so many meaning.
Say it with a touch of sadness and it could mean the final moments before a criminal is put to death by someone who cares for the criminal, a person is going to have to do something they rather not do because it will bring pain to someone they care about, or even the end of the world.
Now say it with a big of anger and the meanings change, of course in this instance instead of using it and will spelled out in most cases it will be hyphenated to it’ll and now you have Soon it’ll be done. When we’re angry we tend to talk quicker, more abruptly. In this case it could mean a person not liking what they have to do but really has to, the victim or a member of the family of a victim who is referring to what to them is a monster in all probability being put to death, or you’re the one taking out the world and happy that you are getting major payback for something you felt the world did to you and don’t care you’re going with it.
Of course there is also the casual tone and in that case you’re probably referring to something that is part of a routine and you’re reassuring a coworker maybe or maybe you have a cake in the oven and soon it will be out. OK let’s face it, I don’t think anyone would refer to the end of the world in a casual tone unless you’re an alien and taking out the world is part of a routine. I wonder if they will speak in any Earth language should that happen. Probably not so they would have an entirely different way of saying it but the meaning would be the same regardless.
So did I go through all this ridiculous rhetoric just to explain the title of this little fun filled blog? Of course I didn’t. As usual my mind goes off on something else after typing in those five silly little words. Who’d a thunk it? Me going off on some silly little tangent caused by five very simple little mish mosh of letters is not unusual. So maybe I should get to the damn point before you all run and hide.
As you may or may not know I just spent the better part of a year working on a book with eight magnificent writers to put together a book. In a couple of weeks, God willing and the creek don’t rise, the book will be in paper back and I’m stepping away from it. The people who worked so hard on the stories in this book, and they did believe me, will be picking up the reigns and carrying it from the moment it goes into hard print. There or those who will say I did a lot of work as well, and I did, but now I want the eight wonderful writers to shine. They are a fabulous group of people and if you include others from our group who were our support system, go to people, helpers, what have you, this is almost a small army of people I’m grateful to.
I’m so very proud of all the people who got involved with this project and helped to make it a reality. Actually I’m a little in awe of all of them. Thank you to each and every one of you.
The book of course is Something in the Shadows An Anthology of Horror Stories and ‘soon it will be available in print.’
