Scattered Thoughts

Still getting my land legs back after vacation.  Ironed all night for senior pictures for Eldest and will spend the day watching his personality unfold in front of the camera.  Fun, fun.

My new post on E-Queries for Picture Books is up at From the Write Angle.  It supplanted my Blogvel post only because I haven’t had a chance to polish that one yet.  Please look for it in September, and in the meantime, browse through FTWA because it’s a great writing resource by some great peeps.

The newest chapter of THE SKELETON KEY is available at Greenwoman’s Blog.  Check it out, she’s amazingly talented and knows just how to tickle my funny bone.

Another blog to peek at this morning is Digging with the Worms by Eric Trant.  It’s a hard look at what you want out of your writing: All of nothing or half of something.  Check it out.

And while you’re at it, I ran across Creepy Query Girl’s blog post about waiting for the pass.  She has a wonderful link there to some great pass lines garnered by successful authors.  It happens to the best of us…

Sock Dog comes home today, so on top of everything else, I’ll be picking up my family’s footware and hiding it.  Which reminds me: if you’re writing a mystery and are in need of a private tutorial on private investigators, please go to Patricia Stoltey’s blog tomorrow.  Her guest team is actually a real life PI team.

 How about you?  What does your day look like?  Will you have time to sneak in a bit of writing between Real Life duties or are you set for a fabulous day of penning prose?

Curious minds want to know!
