Saturday Rambling

Let’s see – I feel very accomplished this week. I finished my novella and got it out to crit and beta, then I sent a submission in to my editor at EC and got back to Wolf Unbound. I thought about Celtic Triangle but as I’m going to be interrupted again to finish up Stripped after I get comments back and then after my agent sees it she’ll have suggestions too, I thought I’d just see how far I could get into WU instead.

The first week of school went well. They just built a new school near our house so everything is new. Teachers, building, schedules, etc. We had one mess up on the first day but otherwise things are well and the boys seem to love it, which is good. And I actually get about 90 minutes of time in the afternoon to write while M is down for her nap. I know it doesn’t seem like a long time but it’s the longest alone time I’ve had in years and it feels really good.

I’ll hold off on my rant about people who feel the need to bring giant dogs to pick up children and then don’t control them and expect everyone else to stay back and be quiet around excitable and grumpy dogs. Grr. Oops, I guess I didn’t, LOL.

I was perplexed by the absense of letters in this month’s RWR in the wake of last month’s Jan Butler debacle but apparently the deadline passed before last month’s issue even came out. Okay then. I won’t refrain from saying that Butler’s crybaby response is pathetic. If you say something, especially something hateful and contraversial, you’re going to be confronted. If you believe yourself to be so special that anyone expressing an opinion counter to yours is an attack, you should just shut the fuck up. Because free speech means free speech for people who have opinions other than yours too. So stop whining about being attacked, because you weren’t. Your opinion was and there’s a huge difference. Oh, and it seems incredibly stupid to attack Nora Roberts like it was something personal because she didn’t agree with you. But hey, it’s your prerogative to do silly stuff.

I have a review for Kitty Goes to Washington to write but I haven’t had the time. I did quite enjoy it though and I can’t wait to read the next one.

And the new Rachel Caine is out! Yay!!

    Congrats on the great week.

    LOL I’m dealing with more alone time than I’ve had in forever as well. Gotta love it.

    It feels so luxurious to have it! I’m glad you’re getting some too.
