Funny how love hits, isn't it?How goes the winter survival? Here in Maine, which is really just Vermont with an ocean, I officially cracked today, with at least two months to go...
I would not have matched the man to the room, but it just goes to show . . .
Apparently it is Jimmy Stewart's library, not Rod's, so you can dodge out of the new love affair!
DED, the winter survival is a total bust. I cracked in mid-December, and it's been straight downhill since then. I'm assuming that at the bottom of the hill will be spring. If not, a trip to the mental hospital, perhaps.Classicist, apparently the man is not, in fact, matched to the room...That makes much more sense, Sidekick. It actually wasn't the library I loved so much as the incongruity of it being Rod Stewart's. But I'm relieved to not, in fact, be even a little bit in love with Rod Stewart.
OK, I can relate to "finishing a first draft of a novel". I am someone who reckoned one of the perks of studying mathematics at university was the complete absence of the need to write full sentences of any description, so actually writing a novel really did seem an impossible dream a few years ago.Now I've climbed that mountain, publication (heck, even representation) still seems worlds beyond reach, and therefore perfectly dreamworthy.But, no holds barred?I want to be compared (favourably) to Frank Herbert. I want youngsters to spend lunch hours at school reading my books like I read as a kid. I want teenage girls to dream of kicking ass like Shayla Carver. I want science geeks to have heated arguments between classes over the fractal folding of space and the physics of particle beam weapons. I want to inspire a new generation to pick up books again.And I want to earn enough from my bestsellers to be financially secure so I can spend more "me" time with my art, my writing, and my family
OK, this is spooky. I was Googling one of my character names to see if it had been used elsewhere, and I found the above comment had been cribbed wholesale from something I wrote on another writer's blog hereHow bizarre.
