Let’s start with the bad news. I think I’ve put on weight. I don’t want to talk about it. I’ll just make myself feel better by having a couple of jammy dodgers, and a Coke.
In other news, SuperGoo is still on vacation. I hear the theme songs of all her Disney Jr. and Nick Jr. shows in my sleep. When we do turn off the TV, she scribbles then tries to stab me with her crayons.
Oh, she naps for all of two hours, and doesn’t fall asleep till late.
And, she thinks I double as a Jungle Gym.
Ain’t motherhood great?
As far as my reading challenge goes, I’ve gone through five books, but according to goodreads.com – At my current pace, I am one book behind. Thanks a lot. Nothing I love more than pressure.
Anyway, I’ve decided to cheat with romance novels. They’re nice, short, and don’t require me to be fully awake, or lucid. No disrespect. It’s a genre I have enjoyed for many, many, many years.
In writing news, all I’ve done is respond to interview questions (borrowed from J.R. Ward’s The Black Dagger Brotherhood: An Insider’s Guide) for my heroine/protagonist for Good Intentions. I should actually be banging out an outline.
On the income side of things, I’m still talking contracts for possible freelance jobs, and exchanged a couple of emails with an illustrator for a non-fiction book I’m editing. I’m waiting for everyone, including myself, to get back to me.
How about I add you to the list ? Check out my heroine/protagonist’s response sheet below, and let me know what you think. Feel free to send interview questions of your own.

Description: Mary was beautiful, tall and somewhat striking, for such a shy person. You could almost feel her willing herself to be invisible. Maybe that’s why she was such a great runway model, she was the perfect clotheshorse. Designers loved her. Skinny, with just enough curves to satisfy the local clientele, but not so much as to throw off a design. She was damn near perfect. If only she wasn’t scared of cameras.
