I learned this weekend that it is impossible to sneak up on my husband with 5 cats in the house. They, curious as to why I'm standing in the dark guest bathroom waiting to pounce, blow my cover every time. And as I'm trying to be inconspicuous(and they are cats) cannot explain to them my need for stealth.
Who doesn't like giving your most loved person a good scare? Don't judge me.
As far as writing goes, I have printed out a good portion of my novel for my editing. Edited the first 5 pages of that aaaaand...nothing more.
This weekend has been dominated by rereading The Hunger Games(in prep for Mockingjay on Tuesday), working as a favor to one of my bosses on Saturday, and today grilling and watching Law and Order reruns. Busy? You bet your butt not.
I have thought of working on and off, but this website: QueryTracker.netBlog makes me feel a lot better about being a bum this weekend.
Monday I will get back to work and bust them out.
Got a bit of great news this past week. My very lovely, very funny, (very much missed since I moved to a new state 4 years ago) friend, Whisper, has agreed to help me with my novel content. I have my author, and so good at editing she should make it a career, friend going over all the grammar, punctuation, and structural things for me. What I have been lacking was content editor.
Mrs. Whisper reads YA a bit and will be able to help me decide whats appropriate, whats missing, etc etc. And I couldn't be more thrilled. She has already done chapter 1 for me with amazing results so I hope, pray, and might even do a little Whisper-dance to keep her on my reading staff.
Speaking of dancing, I can't help but want to Snoopy Dance every time I think about Mockingjay coming out on Tuesday! Who's with me? So Excited! Feels like I have been waiting so long for it. Oh wait, cause I have!
I'm going to have to work hard Monday on my own book because, come Tuesday, I'm going to be so absorbed in Katniss Everdeen and her serious woes. I doubt I'll notice if someone tried to cut off my own toe.
If you haven't read The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, do yourself a favor and get them. I haven't been caught up in a series like this since Harry Potter came out. And my Harry Potter tattoo should tell you something about that one.
If you haven't been able to tell as of yet, I am a nerd. I thank you. ^_^
I'm making my mom watch True Blood this week. I, reluctantly, let her borrow my first season b/c I, nor her friend, have been able to properly describe the sexiness of Eric Northman. Can you put that in words? I would like to see someone try.
I say reluctantly because it took me a while to get over the whole nudity factor when debating on giving my mom the dvds. I'm an adult, yes, but she is still my mother. My love for the show, Northman, and the story won over mother-modesty.
Fun fact: Eric Northman was Meekus(from zoolander). Love it.
Hoping everyone has a great week.
