The lovely Karin emailed me with a gentle nudge this morning about missing my MSW post. I’m still sitting here wondering where the last two weeks went! I spent a few days in Florida at the RT Convention, then a few days afterward recovering (lack of sleep coupled with jet lag is a killer!), but after that, all is a blur. I was just about to fall asleep last night when I vaguely remembered an email I’d received last week that needed answering that I hadn’t yet answered. I hopped out of bed and went down to my office to take care of it, because I knew I’d forget otherwise! Such is the state of my mind at the moment. Scattered and kind of slow. Despite this lapse in effectiveness, my brain has suddenly been inundated with story ideas. I don’t know where they came from or what to do with them. I’m wondering if I have to lose all reason to get creative…? Anyway, my post may be a scattered sampling of my brain contents. Could be frightening. (Just sayin’…)
I’ve picked up a lot of books over the last few weeks, all of them by new-to-me authors. I seem to be on a horror kick of some sort, which is interesting. I used to read a lot of supernatural thrillers and horror several years ago, then drifted away from them. Apparently my interest is back in full force, because the heavy box that arrived from BN.com last week was filled with horror and thriller hardcovers. (I was also disappointed that the only death on Harper’s Island was a guy who shot himself in the leg. I must be feeling bloodthirsty lately.) Are you on any sort of reading binge now? Anything really catch your attention the last two weeks?
Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo. Since it’s a weekday, we’ll head out to a restaurant for Mexican food. Yum. (Just thinking about it now is making me hungry!) We lost several of our local restaurants to the state of the economy, so I’ll have to do my research to find a new place to go. It’s all about the salsa for me. I judge the restaurant by the quality of the salsa. Fresh and hot are two must-haves. Are you doing anything special for the day? Cooking? Going out? Nada?
A couple things going on web-wise:
- I’m over at the Romantic Times message board for the next two weeks in the Ask The Author forum. I’d love it if you stopped by, even if you don’t have anything to ask. 😀
- Brenda Novak’s Diabetes Auction is going on now and there is a TON of fabulous stuff there. I hope you’ll stop by, check it out, and find something to bid on! If you donated something to the auction, could you list it in the comments?
