A new blogging friend of mine, Suki, posts these wonderfully fun things called Biblioscopes on the 23rd Mandalation . She picks a book and chooses passages to represent signs. You guys should check them out. Look what mine said this month. The part in italics is the part of the book she landed on for Aries.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
But he understands, and I know Sanchez does, too, that if we could somehow get the Turks in, it would actually worsen security.
Do not ask for help on your projects–your “help” may make things worse.
Hmmm… I’ve been kicking the idea around of getting into a new critique group. Not leaving my old one, but also meeting with a group that meets once a week, or better yet, works through email. I need a constant fire under my butt right now. Still mulling the idea. The biblioscope does make me wonder… (g)
My family wears me out. I probably shouldn’t vent here, but this will give you an idea of why. It’s father’s day and I made plans to have an easy gathering here because some people wanted to get together, but they couldn’t decide on where. We had talked about going to the lake with friends, but nothing was ever planned seriously and I didn’t know what was up with that. I’ve been gone so I asked my husband to find out about those plans. (I was speaking on a fun panel and will get to that.) Anyway, to make a seriously long and twisted story short, my parents made plans and since they already had something set up and I already had something set up, I just said cool, we’ll just go ahead with our plans… no big deal.
Nothing is ever a “no big deal” with this family. I’m getting calls and hearing rumblings of drama and even being accused of thinking things I don’t. I’m also worried we upset our friends because of that misunderstanding.
I woke up feeling pretty good and now I’m all twisted up. A doctor once told me that illness wasn’t going to kill me, my family would. I love them, but someone needs to introduce them to chill pills.
Okay, I need to say I’m not usually this tan. Don’t have the patience for it. But I’ve been taking my work outside and got lost in it a few times. Uh, too much apparently, because that’s freaky dark. Eck. Plus, the lights were out and I think I got less of the flash… Man, I hope so.
The meeting was a blast as usual. The mall’s power was out and we conducted the meeting on emergency lighting. Then the lights went out completely and one of the author’s whipped a flashlight from her purse and we just went on as if nothing had happened. We were in the middle of an author’s shining moment. Cindy MaroltCyn Marolt Fiction Author has picked up a dream of an agent and had some fantastic news. I won’t go into details because she might want to do that herself. But check her out! I expect to hear great things in her future! Anyway, she was right in the middle and the lights went out and we just went on. The security guards came in and chuckled, shaking their heads. Someone yelled out, “We’re romance writers. We like the dark.”
Yeah, we do.
I think the panel was a success because already, one of our authors went home and started her own. Check it out! merlinelovelace.com Click on blog at the top. Merline Lovelace is something else. Seriously. Click on the page that shows her books. Be patient while it loads. There are so many!!!!
So, I hope everyone has a wonderful Father’s Day. I’d like to say here that I hope my husband’s day picks up because he is a wonderful, wonderful father and deserves all the best. Love you, babe.
