Random miscellanea

It never fails—as soon as you hand something to somebody to read, you are overwhelmed by the desperate need to change it. I should disappear the kid and make him a returning soldier. Some days writing is nothing more than barely contained madness.

Real life has been kicking my ass for the last ten days or so, hence the blogging-lite. It should settle down soon. (I hope. Jeez. I’d like to not feel like a gerbil in a Tim the Toolman-souped up wheel.)

Managed to catch up on the Troubleshooters while hangging out at my brother-in-law’s doctor appointments, and I LOVED Dark of Night! Will try to blog about it this week.

The short kid just had to have this t-shirt from Old Navy this weekend. I didn’t notice the typo unti I was cutting the tags off at home, and he won’t let me take it back. It drives me mad.

    May I suggest a blue marker to correct the error?

    It would drive me crazy too.

    Yeah I love when my book’s in the galley stage and I’m reading it and wanting to change….oh….everything about it. And I can’t because it’s already in final press setting so pretty much all I can change are typos at that point. :gaah:

    Omg on the shirt typo. O-M-G. It would make me insane too.

    Hope life settles down for you soon. Miss you, dammit!

    Barely contained madness, sounds about right! :baby:
