Sunday Blather

So I am sitting at Panera's trying to write. It's freezing in here, I'm on my second cup off coffee, just polished off a cinnamon crunch bagel, and I really haven't gotten far at all.

This is not. writers. block.

There is no such thing.

I think I'm just exhausted after the SCBWI workshop yesterday, which went well, and brian_ohio insists I didn't look like a complete idiot. I spent the rest of yesterday fine-tuning my ms (anyone want to guess how many F-words I had?) which hopefully goes out this week.

Oh, yeah, and me-who-never-reads-anything-that's-popular found out that "Annabeth" is a character in The Lightning Thief--AND NOBODY POINTED THIS OUT TO ME!--so therefore I changed my character's name only because Annabeth is not what you'd call common. No big deal. Seriously, though, would I call Rinn "Hermione"?

This makes the third name I've changed in the past week alone.

Then I got news (as you can read in my previous post) than an old head nurse of mine died and it's kind of thrown me off balance. Generally I make it a point not to buddy up with managers, but honest-to-God, there is nothing about SUA you guys wouldn't have loved. If she could see me now I know exactly what she'd say: "I always knew you'd end up in a psych ward, Garsee!"

ALSO: last Wednesday brian_ohio and ladyeye and I had the privledge of hanging out with the fabulous Melissa Marr--melissa_writing. She was signing copies of FRAGILE ETERNITY, the fourth book in her WICKED LOVELY series, at Joseph-Beth. We yacked till midnight. So much fun! :)

One more day off before my vacation is over. Hopefully tomorrow will be more productive than today.

Still, the night is young. And Panera's closes at 8...

I hardly ever read anything that's popular, either, including The Lightning Thief. Annabeth always seemed like a pretty unique name to me, but now I guess I'm wrong. XD

It's hard to write and read other stuff at the same time.

Only when and if it sells. LOL, like ophelialaughs I'm scared to death to jinx anything!

Does this mean what I think it means?
