I have a bunch of stuff going on right now—some good, some not so good—so the blog’s suffering. I apologize. But a few random thoughts in list form:
1. Bought a book that’s supposed to be the first of a trilogy. Yeah, but it didn’t mention the trilogy is set within a longer series, which I figured out after slogging through thirty-something pages of backstory. While I’m trying to be less cynical in ’09, I can’t help but feel that was a marketing gimmick to suck in readers like me, who have to start at the beginning. I’m done with it.
2. What is it about dropping children off in a school parking lot that turns parents into :censor: morons?
3. Just realized there’s a Firefly soundtrack! Will be downloading as soon as I move from desktop to laptop.
4. Still stuck writing the love scene for DG3. I’m not sure if it’s the description of the sex itself or the major characterization turning point blocking me, but I need to get through it. That’s my goal for today.
That and making chili in the crockpot.
