things i need…  

Things I need to write that are not actually words in a book but which are none-the-less work-related writing and which keep piling up not that that’s bad it’s just that I’m feeling snowed under so maybe if I get some of them done I’ll feel less so, and if this is avoidance for the line edits, well, too bad:

- quick note to the Dabels
- paranormal romance blog
- author introduction blog
- synopsis blog
- comic book blog

We went to see the Spiderwick Chronicles movie this morning. It’s quite wonderful. One does automatically want to compare it to Labyrinth, but that’s not any more appropriate than comparing Stardust to Princess Bride. Go see it, if you haven’t, because it’s well worth it.

We also went to see 10,000 BC yesterday. We expected it to be bad, of course. We didn’t expect it to be *boring*. My god. That was an 80 minute movie stuffed into 2 hours. Gah.

ytd wordcount: 93,600
miles to Minas Tirith: 185
music in my head: Queen, Don’t Stop Me Now

:( That makes the 3rd bad review for 10k BC from the F-List.
What a shame, the trailer eye-candy was so tasty looking.

I know! I thought it would be non-stop eye-candy action, but nooOOooo. It was a huge snoozefest. :p

Interestingly enough, your post was the clincher in my "Shall we see Spiderwick" today conversation with my wife. I can't tell if she was woo'd by the parallel to Labyrinth or my persistent "OH OH SEE...SEE...SOMEONE ELSE LIKES IT!"

I hope you like it!

OK, we shall go see it instead of 10KBC, which I was thinking of (because we haven't done a cinema trip in yonks).

If we don't like it, well, we'll blame outselves. (Though if you liked it, I expect we will.)

Oh! Hello! You're right, that skip/fast forward is INCREDIBLY annoying, and we used to do that exact same howl of dismay process. :) In fact, we still do, with our current DVD player...

Ooh, I'm glad you found HEART OF STONE and liked it so much, and that it struck a chord. *beams* The third book (which I'm currently doing almost-final edits on) will be out in September. :) Yay!

Seattle, huh? What brought you there? It's good to talk to you, even if we didn't ever really get to know each other in Anchorage! :)

Found your journal yesterday and just had to leave a note that you have a new fan. :)

I just finished Coyote Dreams and really, really enjoyed it. Out of the three books in the Walker Papers, I enjoyed it the most. I look forward to more books in the series.

I will also be reading some of your other series. Thanks!

It's my favorite of the Walker Papers, too, at least so far. :) I'm glad you liked it! Thank you for letting me know! *beams*
