It's Raining, It's Pouring

Okay, so I’m sitting here writing this blog entry while rain pelts against my office window. Where did the week go? I can’t believe my last entry was on Monday. I’ve been so busy writing and living my life that the week just flew by. Anyway, most of the writers I know are at this moment gearing up for the RWA National conference in Reno. Alas, I won’t be there this year…but I expect full reports from my friends.

Well, I think I hear thunder in the distance so my Internet time is almost up…

Urgent Warning!

I’ve been visiting my regular blog haunts this morning, and I just noticed an extremely important warning on Deidre Knight’s Agency Blog. Anyway, I urge any of the readers of my blog to scoot right over there and read her warning.
  • Knight Agency Blog
    Please take the time out to visit her blog. I would elaborate further, but I think it’s best if my readers hear it straight from Deidre.

    I'm So Excited!!!

    I’m so excited. Tomorrow I’ll be getting my copy of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Yesterday, I read this interesting article about how the Canadian copies of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince will be printed entirely with recycled paper that is free of pulp from ancient trees. Ancient trees are generally defined as being trees that are at least 150 years old. The Canadian Publisher of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is Raincoast Books. Activists say their printing of the book will save more than 28, 000 trees. To give you a visual picture of that number they say it is more trees than what will fill New York City’s Central Park. Wow.

    I just skipped over to Marjorie M. Liu’s blog, and I just have to rave about the cover to her book Shadow Touch. It’s one haunting cover. The color scheme is catchy and there is just so much to entice the eyes. Okay, I’m going back to my writing now,

    Spitting Nails

    Okay here’s one of my biggest pet peeves in some people. People that can’t seem to mind their own freaking business! Why can’t some people just concern themselves with what is going on with their lives, instead of sticking their noses where they don’t bloody belong? And I’m sure I’m not alone in having this viewpoint. Here’s another thing that really ticks me off. People that seem to think they can talk for other people. I mean give me a break. I’m perfectly capable of speaking for myself, please and thank you. There’s no need for anyone to put words in my mouth. I’m a pretty private person, and I like to keep my business just what it is-MY BUSINESS! I don’t really like to air my business, and I don’t appreciate being backed into a corner. I especially don’t like being forced to defend myself or anyone else that has been put into the corner with me.
    Newsflash, I believe in treating people with respect, and I believe in being nice almost to a fault…but don’t piss me off. I can and do bite back. I’m sick to death of people thinking that being sweet and kind is a weakness that they can exploit. Or worse, they think that I’ve got fluff between my ears. Well, I guess I can only say one thing. Those people that think they can push me into a corner aren’t worth the time or trouble. I really do try to see the best in people…but sometimes it’s just a lost cause.

    I’m off to write,

    My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the people of Britain, following the horrible terror attacks in London.
