Ready to go!
Thursday, May 21st, 2009


Starting new untitled cowboy story!

The craziness is past. I shipped the paranormal proposal off to my agent. We’ll see what happens. Cross your fingers!! In the meantime, I can’t sit and wait. My “writer muscles” would atrophy. It’s tough when you take a break. You come back to a blank page and second guess yourself to death. So instead, I dive right into the the next thing. And the cowboy stories are so dang easy to slide into! :grin:

Cleaned the pool this morning and pulled two dead tree frogs from the traps and fished a baby snake from the water. I didn’t want to check the type of snake it was, because if it was poisonous I’d have had to kill it. It was way too cute to demolish. Went for a swim afterward, then dressed in a dry suit and shorts so I can hop in whenever I get stuck in the story.

Bummer about Adam Lambert. But fantastic he won’t be married to that godawful “No Boundaries” single. Can’t wait to see what he does next. I wish Kris luck. I know he’ll do well too, but really, Idol was all about Adam this year. I bought an iPod yesterday. Guess whose performances I’ll be downloading?!

Well, I’m off to join friends for some timed writing sprints. Later!

    You know we love it when you write and then write some more.

    Did you get your fill of our spells then since you got the proposal sent off?

    That No Boundaries song sucked big time. I thought Adam was great too. Did you see the look on Brian May’s face from Queen when Adam started singing We Are the Champions. He was probably thinking Freddy would be proud. Have a great Holiday weekend.
