Hey. A pun.
I’m actually talking about the show, House. Last night, I laughed and cried. I swear the writing on that show is fantastic. So is Hugh Laurie. (You can’t stop our love! LOL!) I look forward to my Tuesdays with House and yeah, I know people are excited about the World Series but weeks without my House fix? Sucks.
I wrote past midnight last night. A little fact about this writer’s life is –I struggle with fight scenes and in the types of books I like to read and er, write, they are a necessary evil. Whenever I hit a chapter that requires one, I procrastinate. A lot.
But last night, I won the battle. I had written the scene and still didn’t like it, so I scrapped it. (I know, Rachel, I know!) But no worries, sometimes the best thing a writer can do is write the crap down, discard it and start fresh. And this stuff felt soooo much better than the piles of crap that spilled from my fingers over the last week.
It went so well, I moved beyond and found a better transition for the next chapter. Maybe I’ll meet my goal this year after all!!!
In store news, Heather is a sweetie. I think she may be responsible for more traffic to the Write Snark than all those ads I used to buy. Note the used to…
I backed off to see if maybe word of mouth would work a little while. I’m always following links from the store back to their origins and I love nothing better than to see discussions about the different shirts, mugs and stuff on message boards.
My newsletter subscribers doubled and I plan to make the mailings every couple of weeks to share specials. Check out the store for the Halloween special!
I hope the newsletter amuses. And speaking of amuse… I loaded new bumper stickers this morning. Here are a few of them.

Oh yes, I did say I’d put up the writing from Scene From a Pic. I lied. I’ll load it tomorrow. I haven’t found just the right picture to inspire my Snarky readers yet!
