I’ve finally started revising this novel again, and I’ve gotten to the part where I had previously figured out this annoying complicated plot knot, but since I lost all of my notes and revisions when I was burgled I now have to figure it out again. My brain already hurts. But in lucky things I … More sunday night writing/revising/arrrrgh
I spent much of the last week in Seattle. I took very few pictures, and none actually of Seattle, but I would say this one kind of sums up how the week went: Yes, that’s 10 distinct pieces of dessert and yes I tried them all. (Not shown: the second lemon square.) Seattle is a … More notes from the road: Seattle
It’s cold in Boston tonight. I wasn’t near the marathon finish line yesterday; the closest I got was around mile 22.5, which is where I was accidentally stationed when the pack of elite men ran by.

Well. And then it was mid-March. Let’s recap: I only had a few days turnaround between coming back from Disney World (vacation) and heading to Atlanta (not vacation). After Atlanta I returned home long enough to have my apartment broken into and various valuables stolen, and then I traveled again (Washington DC). By that point … More in like a lion
The big crisis of my life this week has been what color to paint my nails in preparation for Disney World. I know, guys, I have it rough. Anyway, I decided on Barbie/Pepto Bismal/Disney Princess pink, and now I’m ready to go! That’s right, I’m heading back to that glorious land of magic, Disney World … More vacaaaation
