Friday Five

1. I was a little irked over the Judy Mays' story. Could you tell? I don't like witch hunts. I'm happy to see so much support for Mays and I've heard they are going to do a companion story on her supporters. I hope Mays' royalties go through the roof.

2. Work continues on Dragon's Lair. It's going pretty well I think.

3. Posted at Loose Ends on Movies and books.

4. Had a little kick in the pants recently that life is good here and that with shadow, there is sunshine. Can't appreciate the sunshine without the shadow.

5. Is going to see Beauty and the Beast tomorrow night. I can't wait! I love that story. *happy sigh*

May the muses have Beauty to go along with the Beasts

An erotic romance author, Judy Mays, was outed in a news story. Mays is a teacher and apparently some parents have problems with her secondary career and personal life.

I won't link to the story but Smart Bitches has a blog on it.

Needless to say my full support goes to Judy Mays. I can't believe the piece that tried to pass as a "news" article.

I'm really irritated. Wasn't like she was reading excerpts from her books in class. From reading comments at the story site, several students lauded her as a great teacher.

Friday Five

1. Let's see...why haven't I been blogging? Well, my aunt was in a serious car accident and I've been helping her out. It's added craziness to an already busy schedule.

2. Writing on Dragon's Lair has resumed. I'm determined to write at least 500-1000 words a day minimum. I want to finish it. I now have a clear understanding of where the story is going.

3. I got some good news this week. Will share as soon as I can :>)

4. A Doctor Who salute to Elisabeth Sladen who passed away this week. She played Sarah Jane Smith in the 1970's and came back onto Doctor Who to reprise the character alongside David Tennant's Dr. Who. She also had a spin off show, The Sarah Jane Adventures. The new Doctor Who season starts on Saturday, much to my girls' delight. They are determined to convert the world to Doctor Who fans one at a time.

5. I blogged at TRS on my soap opera loving past.

May the muses have K-9's

Friday Five

1. Writing has stalled. I have a million and one excuses. The biggest one is my butt is not in the chair enough with fingers on keys. Need to work on it. I'm determined to get the dragon stories written! I'm giving myself a deadline.

2. Oldest said last night, "You have another meeting?" It's been that kind of March. I'm hoping April will settled down some.

3. Naptime should be mandatory for kids and adults alike.

4. Really enjoyed Monday's Castle. Loved the subplot about the daughter and really enjoyed the main plot. The Captain is really a neat character.

5. Got Vampire Academy for the oldest. Ended up reading it myself. Wow. Have now read books 2 and 3. 3 was the best one yet. I have a feeling I'm not going to get my HEA, which might make me mad but we'll see. I love the world building and the main character is intriguing, gutsy, and makes mistakes. I like a flawed protagonist.

Course I asked oldest was she going to read them or should I take them back to the library. She said "Take them back." Now this is after I've been telling her how good the first 2 are. I said, "You sure? They are really good." She said, "I'm just not interested in vampires." *shakes head*

May the muses have vampires
