This is not a corpse speaking...no really, I'm somewhat alive.

I've been offline quite a bit lately working on FINALLY finishing my first book (rough draft only). I'm not done, but I'm not dead.

Yet.

I figure I need to finish, because my excellent friend Sarah did a Tarot reading for me recently that was essentially a GIANT COSMIC WARNING that I'm "excessively fertile."

I suppose it could've been a universal-warning about an impending apocalypse babies, but I choose to think of it as a not-so-gentle-reminder that I have NOTEBOOKS full of characters and plots just waiting to break out of my overstuffed brainpan and ravage the world.

Also, I've been wasting time looking for a house to rent in Florida, because FUCK THIS WEATHER. Oh Minnesota, I will joyfully leave behind your backstabby version of passive aggressive nice AND your never ending cold.

Oh, you think I'm kidding?

    1. Well this decidedly isn't my husband (who only comments as Anonymous when he comments here)...

      I'm not working MnRF anymore anyway and only expect to be out once or twice a season to say hi. But I'm sure we'd try to coordinate with Superbetsy when she's home for Fest whenever possible.

  2. Welcome back! Congrats on your first draft--what kind of book are your writing?

    I hear you on the weather -- so sick of anything under 60 degrees. This winter was awful and I'm glad to see it end.

    1. Thanks lady! :) Paranormal romance/dark fantasy. Hilarious, right? I am NOT an expert on romance.

  3. Glad you hear you aren't a corpse. And also, that you haven't stopped posting because freckles sucked your soul away.

    Paranormal romance/dark fantasy - super cool! I've also got piles of notebooks full of languishing characters; every time I try to write anything that isn't fantasy, fantasy creeps in. I have a hard time keeping romance out, as well, even though I'm also so not an expert.

  4. Agreeing with you a bit on the Minnesota portion, since it's April 11th and I can look out my window and see a scene that makes me crave Christmas movies and hot chocolate. White fluffy flakes should be reserved for November and December. I think it's time for sunshine and lemonade.

Unload your brainpan, but please prove you're not a Russian spam-bot. Or Skynet. I don't want the T1000 after me.
