Rain, Writing and What to Do Next…

20140208-205131.jpg

I’m working very hard to get my thesis done, and as the rain falls outside of this window next to my shoulder, I wonder what I will do when the book is finished. I know I’m supposed to look for an agent, find a way to put this book on the market, and then sail off into the sunset (or is that sunrise?) of Publishing Glory. However, I find myself wanting to suspend this period of time when I’m only responsible for my book, and I can sit around in sweatpants with my hair uncombed, and anticipate nothing but five months of glorious, glorious me time.

Oh, and Valentine’s Day is coming up. Oy.

The Zombie Apocalypse

leave a comment »

I love zombie stories. The descent into dystopia, the terror and frenetic scramble for survival. The agonizing choices and emotional trauma of having loved ones turn into ravenous flesh eaters that one must decapitate. Ah. Yeah. Boy.

Apparently I’m not the only survivalist-conspiracy theorist running around. The folks over at the CDC have gotten into the act as well and published their own Preparedness 101: Zombie Apocaplyse guide. Reading this now.

Get A Kit,    Make A Plan, Be Prepared. emergency.cdc.gov

Oh, yeah, and working on the book. Which does not have any zombies in it. **sad face**

My Paris Fantasy

leave a comment »

I found this in my twitter feed this morning. I have had a Paris Fantasy for as long as I can remember. I think it started with a book I read in kindergarten about Madelaine.  Anyway, I’m looking at all these pix and wondering how the hell I can get over there. Suggestions?
