very scary

Am posting at LUSTBITES again today... on Ancient and Modern, a reflection on the fact that I've been writing for Black Lace for fourteen years.

The trouble is, I burbled something about 'what would I be doing in another 14 years' and now I've scared myself sh*tless because it's dawned on my how very, very old I'll be in 14 years time.

Of course there's nothing I can do about that, but still, it's frightening... :(

ps. hottish excerpt of Gemini Heat there too.

Did you -really- have to say that? Now I'm terrified of where I'll be in 14 years. OMG. OMG. Seriously, 14 years........... omg, I'll be 40! Ugh, I'm so going back in my hole away from blogs that can remind me of scary realities like age... or royalties... or... Congrats on 14 years Portia. :) *tossing confetti*

Thanks for the congrats, Ally, but if you'll *only* be 40 in 14 years... you'll still be a young woman just entering your prime!

I think the only way to handle life is to live it one day at a time, and enjoy the pleasures of the moment.

I've decided that I'm definitely *not* going to do any of these then and now type posts... well, I might, but I'll not dwell on the actual years so much, just reflect on a comparison of the books.
