Ideas Whose Time Have Come

At the book store today: Hot Guys and Baby Animals, the calendar. Their motto? “It’s hard to choose between studly men and adorable fuzzy cuteness. We say, why choose?” That said, many of the animals still need forever homes. The guys seem to be unavailable for adoption.


Not white-washed SF cover: I saw two covers today at Barnes and Noble. One was featured a decidedly African woman, which looked like an urban fantasy. She had the right facial features, and a beautiful afro. Another was an Asian woman without the usual Kung Fu accoutrement. Inch by inch.


Never being done with your story: Draft 5 is done. Man, I can’t proofread. Betas, I apologize. However, I went through it and caught nitpicky stupid mistakes. I…um…am dissatisfied with the last vampire scene, so I will be climbing back into it from the mind of young narcissistic vampire William, and see just what he *would* lay out for a “vengeful death trap.”


Taking work home over break. Not an idea whose idea has come, exactly. But something that *is*.


Fantasize about turkey, and I’ll see you later.
