On the writing front
Well, work continues on my site. Also, I turned in book two revisions to my agent, and I am so excited about it! I think it is so amazing and the best thing I ever wrote. That, of course, will change when the inevitable "This book is the shittiest piece of crap in the world" period begins. Anyway, now I have to think of book 3. I have only the barest idea for it, though certain things are slated to happen.
The other day I went running and I got all these ideas on how to work the plot, and I wrote them down (I've learned to bring pen and paper on runs) but now I can't find the little scrap of paper. Argh!! So, that's what I'm doing after I put up this entry. I hope to find the scrap, and if not, I'll work on simultaneously convincing myself the ideas weren't that good and that they'll surely come to me later.
Kitty Softness Smackdown Rumble! Still time to place your bets!
How to bet
1. Leave a comment here or at Stumbling Over Chaos by 10 am CST, December 6 and choose May (Chris's cat), Oblio, or a draw.
2. Give the name of a mass market paperback you want us to lovingly buy for you (mystery, scifi, fantasy, urban fantasy, or paranormal romance) that's likely available at Uncle Hugo's Science Fiction Bookstore or Uncle Edgar's Mystery Bookstore. (They have pretty much everything current, and a huge used section, so odds are good they'll have what you want. You can poke around their site to check. If there's a title you've been desperately seeking but don't see on their site, list it first and then list a second title, just in case.)
3. Leave your email address if it's not gettable from your profile.
