1) Word Count Goal - complete. YAY! This novel may just get finished after all. I feel like I've been writing it my entire life.
2) Steampunk - I feel like I should write a steampunk novel. I know, I know, don't time the trends, but everybody wants steampunk right now and I LOVE steampunk. I loved it before I even knew what it was. Now that it has a subgenre, well, could be a match made in heaven. Also, Lamplight is a noirish YA suspense, how perfect to follow it up (assuming it gets published and I have a fan base wanting something similar) with a steampunk - both dark and suspenseful and very YA. Hmmm....
3) This is the first Wednesday since So You Think You Can Dance named a winner (if it were anyone but Jeanine the winner would only be known as NotEvan to me) and I'm having withdrawls. I *would* be saying - hey, it's on in a month, no biggie - but I'm still reeling from spoiler news. No, I'm not over it. Once it's common knowledge, expect a rant! Or two! I take my reality TV very seriously. And for some reason, the dancers more than anyone else. Why is there a special spot in my heart for dancers? I don't know.
4)Betty Boop is willing to sell the cat to get her pink poodle. I worry about steadfastness for that one.
And that is all.
