Yup, it's my birthday today, and what am I doing? Well, I went to lunch with my Da and Granpa, had a slice of cake, got a whole pie to myself(which I'll be sharing...because I seriously don't need a whole pie to eat XD), got both my state and federal tax return direct deposited into my account(do you think it was on purpose? ;P), and now, now I'm putzing around online while working on an actual blog post for later this week. Because I know reading my random babbling is not what you all want. Right?
In brief, writerly news, story #1 submission was rejected *sadface*, but I've got two more submissions going out this month, and am still waiting to hear back on story #2. I'm hopeful that 1 out of 4 will make it further. ^^
Oh! I'm also now part of an awesome weekly writing/critique group called the Barmy Drapers. It's a new thing for me, since I've usually been a solitary sort of writer outside of NaNoWriMo, but since it's made up of fellow Wrimos it still carries some of that month's wildness.
In regards to reading:
I really enjoyed all three of the KMaM stories I've thus far purchased. :3 How About a Boyfriend was ridiculously cute, and awkward. <3 TT! The Glass Coffin made me squee, because come on, Rostislav and Jesse! And Retirement was a lovely forced to work together couple. ^^
I've also reread Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult, and The Warded Man by Peter V Brett.
Now, back to writing, and enjoying my pie.
