WISHING I HAD LEARNED HOW TO DRINK & SMOKE
It's only April and already it's been one of those years. I no sooner had taken a break from blogging in order to write than I ran smack into that dreaded wall known as Writer's Block (ta-da!). As a remedy, I watched little tv, and no news!, and I listened to almost no radio except a few minutes here'n'there of Rush. I spent only minutes each day online, all in an attempt to clear my head and once again find my voice. It worked, but the writing is slow going and stressful. And then there are all the damned interruptions, like Easter. More and more I'm finding all these "holidays" to be nuisances. Life seems to careen from one extended holiday to another. And don't get me started on politics! Those lying left-wingers and spineless right-wingers, and all of 'em money grubbers. Except Bush. Bush I admire, although I don't always agree with him.
Elsewhere in the blogosphere ...
8 Gayle's OPEN LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT AND THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS
8 Dana, who survived Katrina, is blogging once again!
8 Overheard in New York is kinda fun.
8 How does she do it? I'm talking of the amazing shrinking Janet Jackson. You go girl!
8 Good news For all you writers out there, the word on the [Random House] street is erotica and more erotica. Hot, hot, hot. In more ways than one.
If you write for Ellora’s Cave or some of the other erotica e-publishers, now is probably the time to concoct bigger stories, polish off that tightly written erotic novella, land an agent, and formally make the leap if that is of interest to you. You won’t find better market timing for this genre.
I spent the afternoon at the Penguin Group and it was the same word on Hudson street.
Outside of romance, urban fantasy is also something editors ain’t got enough of on their lists.
8 The absolute best Chevy Tahoe commercial ever!
