I Once Had a Boyfriend so Wrong

I Once Had a Boyfriend so Wrong

Someone visited my blog using this search: Klingon in a thong. This is just crying out for a limerick…  Any takers? Anyone else wish they were going to Dragoncon?  To keep in the know, visit DragonconTV.  I swiped this pic from there.  I probably won’t do a word update until much later.

However It Works

However It Works

So… I loaded up my software late this morning and stared at it.  Then stared at it some more.  Realized I still have a bit of plotting to do, but instead got up and grabbed lunch.  Returned to eat while staring.  Wished for more food, especially since I spent the morning reading Brooke Taylor’s Undone […]

Top SF Flicks, No Reservations and Word Count!

This site lists Ten Truly Underrated Science Fiction Movies–I’d LOVE to hear your feedback on the choices.  And uh, will you laugh to find out I own a copy of Enemy Mine??? 😉 http://www.movieretriever.com/blog/editors/115/Ten-Truly-Underrated-Sci-Fi-Movies And for something completely different: My daughter and I LOVE this movie.  The music is wonderful.  We went through so many emotions–from tears, […]

Fast Drafting and Spoonerisms

Fast Drafting and Spoonerisms

I have some unexpected time!  I didn’t know how to feel about it earlier.  There are both good and bad aspects to this new situation. But, the hubby surprised me.  He brought up using this time to finish the first draft of WTT.  Oh, he is soooo smart, my beautiful man.  😉   With what […]

I don’t always like these.  I prefer to add a flavor to my own strong coffee, but this one is seriously yummy. Don’t forget Rachel’s giveaway!  Check out Jeaniene Frost’s new cover.  I didn’t think it could get better than the first one in the series, but the color scheme and sexy pose on this […]

My critique partner, Rachel Vincent, is hosting a give-a-way on her blog and all you have to do is comment.  She also posted a picture of the two of us at Brooke’s signing Saturday evening. 🙂

A glimpse into Chaos. 😉   Yesterday was full.  Left the house at seven thirty for football practice, scrimmages and weigh-in.  That was done around twelve thirty.  Five. Hours.  It has rained so much here lately, the humidity is something else.  It was a long, long, hot morning.  We returned home only to face backed […]

Oh Yeah, Baby

Oh Yeah, Baby

I’ve been missing Whedon so much, I’ve been playing old show episodes.  So… how many of you have seen this????  Can we start the letters to keep it from being canceled now?  Get a head start? 😉 http://www.dollverse.com/trailer/

Snapping the Whip

Snapping the Whip

Spent some time talking over my plot with Rachel  this morning and she loves it.  In fact, she pretty much ordered me to go get it done so she can read it.  I have pulled out an old habit I thought was crushed under my high-heeled black boots.  (Yeah, I’m six one in them and look […]

Celebrating With Chocolate

Celebrating With Chocolate

5000 words this weekend!  And they’re good words!  Okay, some of it is pretty rough, but that’s the beauty of a shitty first draft.  (Check out Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott for details.)  Got most of the plot worked out, so a rewrite on the synop shouldn’t take long.  Unfortunately, some of the writing is out […]
