I'm supposed to be on blogger and book break for the month of July, but I couldn't resist letting you know that I've re-discovered the joy of first drafting. I'm working on a new book to clear my mind before I get back to my rewrite. All I'll say about my newest project is that I wanted it to be about magic and flowers (which it is) but it is turning into a book about cancer and slavery...? I'll tell you more in August.

Disclaimer: No slaves in my book have cancer. I mean what a horrible blow...even for fiction.

I am here to confess that July has dulled me. That my spark of creativity sizzled out with the last of the fireworks. That I'm bored-my blog bores me AND my book bores me. I haven't breaked since the birth of my daughter, so I'm breaking now...from blogging and from my book (but not from writing, never from writing). Hopefully in August, I'll have something more interesting to say and you'll still want to be friends.

Another One Bites the Dust

Remember this? I must have the worst luck with laptops because Laptop #2 refused to work when I arrived home from Nondescript, Kansas (the best place to spend the Fourth of July). I believe my laptop was angry I'd left it behind. However, the Geek Squad believes it needs a new video card (which will cost more than the laptop is worth). Our rarely-used desktop is looking pretty good right now.

Rather than post anything more interesting than my Laptop Curse (because I have nothing more interesting than that), I'll direct you here where you can read the blog journal of Nurse Katie, who learned all her awesome-ness from me and who is also my sister, as she travels with a Navy ship around Indonesia.
