  2. Yay! Look at you go! ^_^

    I love outlining! It helps keep me focused, among other things, but that's a biggie. I hope it's going well for you! ^_^ You put the wrong link in for Emily's book, by the way.

    I've decided that I'm a X-Men fan and have picked up some comic books to read. :P Plus, I decided it's time to knock another 220 page "novella" out in my Stephen King Anthology.

    1. I may have read some short books in the past two days to get me to 33 books...

      Thanks for telling me about the link--all fixed. X-Men comics? Hmm.I like comic book movies, but I don't think I've read comic book since I was a kid.

      It--the writing--wasn't going so well for me, so I picked up Libbie Hawker's book and it gave me some good ideas on outlining that I can apply to the next draft, whenever that'll be. Plus, her historical fiction book gave me some ideas for the short stories and novellas I intend to write for NaNo this year so that I can either submit or publish them next year.

  3. I've been stuck in the Agatha Raisin mystery series and having a blast. Looks like you're moving along as well. :-)
