Just wanted to say

Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thankful for so much and hope everyone has a good day, whether celebrating today or not.

Friday Five

1. It's been a long week. That is all.

2. I'm down to 30 pages of editing, a spell check, a search for some junk words, and I will be able to submit. I'm hoping by Monday!

3. Reading another Young Adult book. Hate List by Jennifer Brown (I think). Wow. It's captivating me (making it hard to edit because I want to read it). It's a powerful book. Not for the faint of heart because of the subject matter and because of the emotion.

4. I'm bummed. Very bummed. I have been trying to read Bullet by LKH. I just cannot get into it. I find myself not caring. A minor character died and I was like, "Whatever." Not sure what it is. I read Flirt a few weeks ago. I read one other book of hers that I thought sucked and finished it. But I may have to abandon this one. Considering how much I loved Anita Blake in the beginning, it makes me sad. I used to read Anita Blake like I am Hate List.

5. How you know your kids are geeks: When you go to bed two nights in a three day span and find them up still reading, and they are so excited about the book they want to tell your half asleep mind all the details.

May the muses have books

Friday Five

1. I finished my newest novella. Need to name it! It finished about where I thought it would in terms of word count. Onto editing and submission next week. And I need to get back to Code Monkey.

2. It's finally cool here! I'm loving the fall weather. It's not too cold but definitely a nip in the air.

3. It's incredibly busy already. I can't imagine what the holidays are going to be like. Even on our down days, we wind up doing something.

4. I already have purchased tickets to see Harry Potter on November 20th. Boooo ya! My oldest is thrilled.

5. I love Castle. It's such a smart little show. LOL and the strip club episode was a hoot.

May the muses have tickets

Bonus: Congrats to the winners in the Trick or Treat contest!
