10 unrelated declarations

1. Dresses are the new jeans. I finally realized that a comfy dress is basically like wearing pajamas all day, except that old people stop you on the street to say nice things.

2. Receiving flowers never gets old.

3. Someone should have told me about Rufus Wainright back in 1999 or so.

4. Deadlines are the birth control pill of writing.

5. I wish my feet were size 5 or 6, because the really cool shoes are always on sale for $20 in that size.

6. One should never search Twitter for one's book name or character names or anything that might lead one to find people talking about said things unfavorably, because if they wanted you to see it, they would @ you, idiot.

7. Kentucky might be a nice place to visit in June.

8. Good things happen on Wednesdays.

9. Getting less than 5 hours of sleep a night for two weeks can induce a psychological state similar to the one in The Shining.

10. Strawberries and sea salt dark chocolate are a winning combination.

That's all. Just finished up another deadline and have totally forgotten how to blog.

Oops.

Yeah, not a good idea. : ) I've never done it, and feel quite certain that doing so would hurt more than it helps.

But, girlfriend, don't let the haters get you down. Remember, half full. Always. Never half empty.

So, on that note... How many copies have you sold? How many dudes break their neck checking you out? How many many books you going to publish before you're too old to type any more? How sweet is it that you're published and literally tens of thousands aren't?

I don't think your cup's half full. That shit is bubbling over.

Now smile and start striking those keys again.

Love me some dresses! Although, finding one that has more than spaghetti straps and is long enough to cover my behind is proving to be difficult this year. Sigh.

And, uh, when is Wicked As She Wants coming out? Kinda having withdrawal here

Aw, Steph. Wicked as She Wants won't be out until next spring. But there's a novella out this October. And there's always hope of something more...
