Instant gratification

I'm an instant gratification junkie. Have I mentioned that before? Probably. I sent a manuscript to my editor recently and I was just thinking, 'I wonder when I'll hear back from her.' Then I looked at the calendar. ... It's been two weeks as of yesterday. Impatient much? LOL. ::shakes head at self:: I need to find a distraction... Oo! Hula-hoops! And there are Blue Angels flying, too! I'm off to the back yard. TFN!

Friday Quizzage

I'd make that a regular event if only I could remember from one week to the next. LOL.

Your Mind is PG-13 Rated

Your mind is definitely a little dirty. You're naughty, but not trashy.

You don't shy away from a dirty joke, and you're clearly not a prude.

Guest blogging

I'm guest blogging at Kate Davies Blogs! today. I know, I know: Not much of "today" left at this point, you dork. But the post will be up tomorrow, and the next day, and... I've tried twice to announce it to the Samhain Cafe, but cyberspace and yahoo aren't feeling the love today because neither post has appeared.

Anywho, stop on over if you're so inclined. I'm seeking the help of the title gods and goddesses. (Psst. That's you guys. ;) )

New Beta Reader

I'm breaking in a new beta right now. She's quite brilliant. She knows when a story is well crafted and when it isn't, and can tell you in exactly what ways it is or isn't. I can't wait to see what she thinks of the manuscript I sent to her earlier this week. I know it'll be a while; it's longer than any of my others. I can wait. That doesn't mean I'm not excited, especially since she's the first person other than me to read it. I'm gonna start humming Carly Simon if I don't start thinking about something else pretty quick. LOL

Draft complete!

I finally have the first draft of last year's NaNoWriMo novel done. I had to read it twice since I first completed the roughest draft before I felt it was ready to see the light outside my hard drive. Not that I'm going to pester my betas any time soon. They're very busy women and I have plenty of other stuff to keep me occupied for now. Eventually, though... Look out, ladies! ;-D

Happy Canada Day, eh?

Happy Canada Day to all the citizens of the True North! Since it was GLBT Pride weekend just this past weekend, and since you're way better than the US with the whole equality thing, I fly my Canadian Pride Flag today in your collective honour.
