More Fun . . .

Actually, I'm taking a tiny break from editing. Really I am.

Your Ultimate Sci-Fi Profile: which sci-fi crew would you best fit in?

You scored as Serenity (from Firefly). You like to live your own way and do not enjoy when anyone but a friend tries to tell you that you should do different. Now if only the Reavers would quit trying to skin you.

Serenity (from Firefly) -- 88%
Nebuchadnezzar (from The Matrix) -- 82%
Millennium Falcon (from Star Wars) -- 81%
Moya (from Farscape) -- 75%
Stargate SG-1 (from Stargate) -- 69%
Galactica (from Battlestar: Galactica) -- 56%
Enterprise D (from Star Trek) -- 38%
Bebop (from Cowboy Bebop) -- 38%

I'm finding all these quiz distractions interesting, and I'm not cheating to get the same answers. I am really a huige Firefly/SERENTIY fan.

MLE -- Update

Well, I did it. I just sent my story to an e-pub. Now I get to forget about it until I hopefully hear some good news soon.


PS: I dunno if this is a coincidence, but Astrologically today's color is gold and the pub I sent MLE to has "gold" in their slogan. ;-)

Reindeer Games

Okay, needed cheering up, so I played along. Look what it got me . . .

You Are Comet

A total daredevil, you're the reindeer with an edge!

Why You're Naughty: You almost gave Santa a heart attack when you took him sky diving

Why You're Nice: You always make sure the sleigh is going warp speed

Rejection, ha! I'm feeling better.


Rejected . . . Again

I just received my first rejection of 2006. Phooey. It was from the last agent on my list. Now I get to start all over and make another list and continue my search for representation. That'll have to wait until I write more on MLE. And eat some chocolate.

Oh well. Back to square one.

My Loving Enemy

New project: a short story that won't leave me alone. Goal is 10-12K, to be finished by this coming weekend. I just started today, and hopefully, I can complete this story quickly and get back to editing the biggie. ;-)

Six in '06

Happy New year!

Well, I've survived another hectic holiday season, an I'm eager to get back to my writing. Resolutions aren’t usually my thing, however this year there are several things I really want to accomplish. Currently on my desk are three completed manuscripts and one unfinished story. For this new year, I’m devoting the first quarter to completing and polishing all four, plus I’d like to write two new stories. Hence the “Six in’06.”

Of course there are other small projects like articles I want to write and classes I’d like to teach (one is already approved, yea!), plus I want to post here at least once per week instead of once per month. I’ll have to see how everything shapes up and post it here so I can stay honest about my progress. ;-)

BIAQ Goal = edit 4 projects:

Jan - 110K novel
Feb - 90K novel
March - two 25K novellas

0 / 250,000

Happy writing,
