This Morning

For some reason I just couldn't focus on writing while at the library this morning. Maybe I was more in the mood to edit, or do something else. I did get a few words down for something though.

My books from Shocklines arrived today. I was surprised mehitobel's book was signed but the site did mention it. :)

The neighbors with Piper may be moving. Or some of them. There is a U-Haul outside and my husband has said the noises from the apartment have made Zilla barky today.

One show that has cracked me up due to the sheer entertainment value is Parental Control. I just can't believe some of the things these boyfriends and girlfriends will say to the parents. It's so disrepectful and completely on a different relationship than I ever had with my boyfriends' parents.

One great thing about my husband (I don't think I could ever pick just one thing) is that he's always on the lookout for ideas for me. While flipping through the channels he found an episode of Made where the piano student who lives in the house of matriarchs wants to be a rapper. We watched some of it together. Just when I would pick my jaw up from the floor something else would make it fall again. I'm thinking to myself, "OMG! There's so much material here!" If it weren't for him I wouldn't have seen it.

This week I finished reading Revision: A Creative Approach to Writing and Rewriting Fiction by David Michael Kaplan. Some of it really clicked for me. It also explains why I do okay with either the beginnings or the endings of my story. It's like they get worked around in my head until they're good before I get them down on paper.

I also finished How to Write a Dirty Story: Reading, Writing and Publishing Erotica by Susie Bright. It didn't tell me much that I didn't already know.

ancarett is a highly talented friend who let me snag one of her wonderful icons earlier this week. I haven't done much writing today but wanted to use it. Enjoy!
