Amazing giveaway

The fantastic DearEditor is generously giving away a FREE CRITIQUE of your entire manuscript!!!!

Get thee to her blog immediately!

What an opportunity. She is FABULOUS.

and for your entertainment, here's a 25-year-old photo of my kid brother dressed as SUPERMAN.

Your very welcome, baby brother. heh heh heh.


I saw this cool game on Jemi's blog and thought I'd play along since I'm a huge offender of overusing the word LOOK

Do a search of your current wip to find the word look, then post a few paragraphs around that word.
Oy, I use that word too much!

here's my excerpt:

I peeled out of my sopping clothes, then wrapped myself in the blanket. It was silver. And crinkly.

            Dig offered his coat, but since he's sized like a twig, I couldn't even fit both arms in it and still drive. Which I had to do because Dig is a horror show of driving, putting everyone's life at risk. Trust me on that point.

            So I ended up wearing the jacket like a cape with it flapping out behind me as we sped down the trail back home. Did I mention I was draped in a silver blanket? Wearing my helmet with star stickers? And that's where we met Grandpa Morris coming toward us on his quad.

            Curses. I'm so busted. "Grandpa, this isn't how it looks ... " I trailed off when I saw his face.

Anyone want to play, leave me a comment if you are going to post so I can read yours!

Summer flying by

photo credit

Where did this summer go?

Kayaking, reading, work, writing, fishing, laughing, writing conferences, hiking, new puppy, surfing, camping, dog walking, revisions, author questionnaire, boating, bar-b-q, author photo, swimming, movies, poison ivy. 

Two weeks left. How did that happen?
