This has been quite a day in the writing world, at least for people I know. boymonster and ursulav have both acquired agents, at least 50% of them in a totally non-traditional (but very typical for them) way. *laughs* Congratulations to both of them!

My thinks to do list does not keep getting shorter as I get things done. It just changes. That's not fair. I want it to disappear! Maybe I need two lists. One for day to day stuff and one for the big stuff. *eyes the page layout*

Hn. Dinking around going from user to user, I've been reading some of jaylake's postings. He's got a couple of good questions over the last couple months, one being How do you define a writing "career"? What makes/would make you feel successful? and the other being What's your take on critique groups? Do you favor "flat groups" (all peers or near-peers), "tall pole groups" (one sponsoring pro among aspiring or new writers), or "tennis ladder groups" (multiple levels of aspiring and pro writing experience intermixed)? I shall make an attempt to address them in the next few days, 'cause why not? :)

I had 3 people compliment me on my hat while I was out walking today. Two of them were guys driving by in cars. One was in his late 20s and the other I didn't see, but sounded like a teenager. I'm pretty sure the woman was actually complimenting the hat, but given the shirt I'm wearing, I'm not *strictly* sure the other two were focused on the hat... :)

You Are Miss Piggy

A total princess and diva, you're totally in charge - even if people don't know it.
You want to be loved, adored, and worshiped. And you won't settle for anything less.
You're going to be a total star, and you won't let any of the "little people" get in your way.
Just remember, piggy, never eat more than you can lift!

*wry look*

You Are Dr. Bunsen Honeydew

You take the title "mad scientist" to the extreme -with very scary things coming out of your lab.
And you've invented some pretty cool things, from a banana sharpener to a robot politician.
But while you're busy turning gold into cottage cheese, you need to watch out for poor little Beaker!
"Oh, that's very naughty, Beaker! Now you eat these paper clips this minute."

Ironically, I terminated my contract with an agent!

But that was for computer technical literature, which I realized I never actually want to write (if I change my mind, I guess I'll get an agent again.)
