• Finished outlining next book, feeling pretty hip. Time to do some yoga and get knocked down again. My dog does stretches better than I do. #
  • Grilled angel food cake for breakfast…mmmm….. #
  • via @maleesha: Star Trek: Tik Tok http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZWaWrvJ7nA Awesome. #
  • Tim: Defender of the Earth by Sam Enthoven – another good book ruined by a transcendental (read: deus ex machina) ending. #
  • Things transcending life as we know it are problems, not solutions. He got it half right. Fun female lead though, especially the very end. #
  • Yesterday was a bad day. Today will be better, because I said so, and I can do things like that. #
  • The dog is eating my hose. It's all fun and games until you threaten my strawberries. #
  • Fatally Flaky by Diane Mott Davidson: Fun cozy read, good recipes, but I called the ending. I LIKE to be bamboozled by mysteries. #
  • Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan: YA adventure. Not deep, just fun and easy to relate to. Not as good as book 1. #
  • Wild Robert by Diana Wynne Jones: Novellette? Not sure what the point of this was. Felt like a truncated novel. #
  • Almost cleared out overdue liberry stack…yesterday's bad day = a lot of reading done. Oh, well. #
  • I hate this McChrystal thing, but it's been a long time coming. #
  • I'm thinking of calling the new book, a dark fantasy set in 1960s South Dakota, "A Chance Damnation" – whaddya think? #
  • Frames – Disappointed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZdx9e3YdVY&feature=related First song on the new book playlist. #
  • C1 on Chance Damnation done: "Someday, he was going to marry her, and there would be problems." #
  • Heh. That quote probably made you think I'm writing a *totoally* different book than I really am. #
  • Ray and I are off to her belt test for high-yellow. Wish her luck! She has worked SO hard on this kata. #
  • Back from test – won't find out until next week. #
  • I am very witty, insightful, and productive when I'm avoiding something else. #
  • Somebody send me a deadline! #
  • Time to give up on the submission to LCRW. They've had it for 10 months and won't respond to my "Hello?" inquiries. #
  • I am in love with Wanda Jackson. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzJ3hiqsi0U&feature=related #
  • I finally found it! Tennessee Ernie Ford singing 12 Days of Christmas! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eu0uSQ_vbZw #
  • Now that's a bass. #
  • Johnny: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgK-1mpSljI&feature=related

    As a child, he had cried, as all children will. #

  • I'm having waaay to much fun looking up songs for this book. #
  • Muppets spoof of cooking shows: http://www.youtube.com/user/MuppetsStudio?blend=2&ob=1#p/u/5/2Qj8PhxSnhg #
  • Leon on the Spitting Image by Allen Kuzweil – YA silliness with a lot of spit. Unexpected ending. #
  • Hello, Twitter. Goodbye, Twitter. #
  • C2 Chance done (new POV): "Theodore rolled his eyes, as if to say, There goes Aloysius, trying to save the world using his mouth." #
  • C3 Chance done: "Or maybe he was praying that Theodore wouldn’t kill him." #
  • Interestingly, if you burn a cow with anthrax, it may take up to three days to get rid of the carcass. #
  • That's a lot of wood. #
  • So I don't forget, Theodore has a garab knife. http://www.marcialtirada.net/filipino_weapons #
  • I have the next set of e-mail subs prepped (for Ray's book). Going to wait until tomorrow, scan over the one more time. #
  • Hardcopy subs have to wait until I get a new printer cable. With switch from old PC to laptop, I need a converter! #
  • Off to the farmer's market! Lee has to work today. #
  • Decided today will be a dreadful day, as in, I'm going to do all the things I've been putting off, or a good many of them. Like Quicken. #
  • Front yard trimmed, yoga done. Arms shaking. #
  • Quicken and hustling done. #
  • Ungha. #
  • C4: Any minute, the flames would spread to the dry grass outside the church, and all hell was going to break loose, if it hadn’t already. #
  • These chapters are running shorter than usual, about 1500 words to my usual 2000. #
  • Hm…is 72K too short for a horror/dark fantasy novel? #
  • Sometimes I love the unknowns implicit in an outline. "HOW am I GOING to pull THAT off?!?" #
  • C5 Chance done: "And thinking about Maeve maybe being pregnant when she’d died wasn’t making him any less nervous, either." #
