♫ A-Z has been interesting to say the least. what i'm really looking forward to is having the alphabet titles disappear so i can get to know new blogging friends without the restriction of "today's post has been brought to you by the letter ?"
♫ i had to restrict how many new blogs i followed, so i limited myself to writers, and fantasy writers in particular. i don't think there are many of us fantasy writers out there. we need to stick together.
♫ why is it that when i'm in the groove of writing, the story comes out of me so fast that my fingers can hardly keep up, but when i think about all the parts that have to come together and how big it is, my brain freezes up? would that be called "performance anxiety"?
♫ we're planning to put our house up for sale in June. that's basically a month away. if you hear shouts of panic, they're coming from me. i'm trying to stay calm. thank goodness we don't plan on moving until September.
♫ i loved having friends over for an Easter party yesterday. i'm very glad for the quiet today.
♫ we're going to another friend's house for an Easter party this afternoon. i'm glad i don't have to be the hostess. i can just veg.
♫ it's so much easier for me to write when i know no one is going to read it. performance anxiety again?
♫ my house is so uncluttered right now that it doesn't feel like my house. it's going to be more uncluttered in the next few months. i wonder if i'll get used to it.
♫ someone asked me in an interview to say a little about my novel. why am i having a hard time figuring out what i want to say about it?
♫ it always feels weird when someone wants to interview me. i'm just a mom who writes. i've always felt like interviews are for famous people. at the same time, i've always wanted to have a voice, and i have it in two venues now - blogging/facebook and writing.
♫ i used to love watching The A-Team t.v. series. after watching the A-Team movie and loving it, the series didn't seem that great. maybe it's because the characters in the movie seemed more real, or there was more danger, or Liam Neeson is nicer to look at than George Peppard. the only character i still like from the series is Murdock. i like the Murdock in the movie, but no one does Murdock like Dwight Schultz.
