A New Week

It's Monday, which means that today's the day to have a shiny perspective on things -- maybe try to be a little happier, a little brighter. You know, crap like that. Of course, today is also the day traditionally that diets begin, so I don't know about the whole "happy" thing. Maybe I'll just have some cupcakes and enjoy the momentary yumminess that only chocolate can bring.

((sigh)) Sorry. The coffee's brewing. I'll be more coherent soon.

Meanwhile, the WIP is up to 49,500 words as of this moment. I've got 14 days to bang out just over 30,000 words. So I need to average just over 2,000 words a day. Considering I babble over 2,000 words on phone calls with my mother, this should be a cakewalk.

Oh, there I go mentioning "cake" again. Hmmm. Maybe the Universe is trying to tell me something... Or, at least, my stomach is...

Book Buzz of the Day
Creepers by David Morrell. I had the pleasure of meeting David at the Backspace Conference this past June. Let me tell you, the man is damned smart, very funny...and very serious about the business of writing. His latest book is written in real time, from what I understand, over a period of eight hours. I can't wait to dive into it to see how a master does it.
