Don't laugh, but I have a Paypal. One day I'd like to make a living at this, but in the meantime I'd at least like to pay for my website and other costs. If you like what you read, maybe drop a few bucks.

Summer in Florida

Summer in Florida sucks. I was sweating into my eyeballs and it stung. I had to go to the store, though. I'm going to be adventurous. I'm going to try to fry bacon for BLTs. I don't think I've ever done that before.

Otherwise, everything's ok. Found out that I'm having a serious sleep problem. That explains why I drift off every morning and sometimes in the afternoon. Yet, I still have insomnia sometimes. Go figure...

I'm still working on my second book. I've got the first draft done, but every time I go back and look at it I find more mistakes. I'm frustrated. I'll try to work on it some more today.

That's why I watch TV more than write - I can't be blamed for any of the mistakes TV shows make! That coffee cup? Not on me. That plastic water bottle? Not my bad!

Anyhoos...another day, another fear of failure...

Fun Writing Experiments

#1 Horror Movie Rules

#2 Mash-up two titles from the Fall Crop of TV shows

Mash-up two titles from the Fall crop of TV shows & make a new title. Explain what that show would be about. It can be serious or not-so-serious (which is what mine is.) Example: Timeless Conviction. Synopsis: A young woman is convicted for a crime she didn’t commit. She attempts to break out of prison in hopes of clearing her name; however, she’s caught in a time loop. She relives each day, each time finding a different way to escape, and increasingly forgets why she is convicted, and why she wants to escape. A list of the new shows is below. I’m just counting September and October, but if you want to throw in November, that’s fine! I figured I’d do this at mid-season, too. 

Full list of new shows here.

First Poem I've Written in 20 Years

I was inspired tonight when I found out that Cynthia Nixon (Miranda from Sex and the City) is going to play Emily Dickenson (My favorite poet) in a movie. 

I know Miranda wasn't the vixen of the show, but vixen rhymes with Nixon.



Working on my new book

Up to page 86 of my latest book. I know. I'm slow. The naps don't help. I went through the 86 pages again, and I'm glad I did. I fixed someone who had red hair at the beginning and brown hair towards the middle. I also realized I had the characters in Orlando in one chapter, then immediately back in Jacksonville, going to Gainesville. I had to fill in a little transition there.

I'll keep plowing along!
