It's that day of the week again. FRY DAY as Mini says.
I turned on my computer first thing this morning and discovered AOL is decidedly trying to have me committed. All my favorites (bookmarks) were gone. I went through their lousy tech support pages looking for an answer and none of their manual restore options worked.
So, I set about re-adding the bare bones of my favorite places - things I need to be able to go where I go on a daily basis. I get the Midnight Moon Cafe and BAM! All my favorites are magically restored. Yeah, okay. Ha ha. Very effing funny AOL. I'll send you my psyche bill, kthnxbye.
Now for the good stuff... FREEBIES!
Firstly-first there is a ROCKIN' interview up with Lilith Saintcrow over at the Midnight Moon Cafe. OMG, I love her Dante Valentine series. Urban Fantasy at its finest. Don't miss this interview!
And secondy-second, Tor.com has new sparkly new desktop wallpaper for download, and this week, they're giving away a copy of Patti O'Shea's In The Midnight Hour in your choice of ebook formats. No catch, I promise! Just register and download. I've already got my copy of Ms. O'Shea's book downloaded to my desktop. Love me some pdf format. *evil handwringing*
News from the writing cave...
I actually sat down yesterday with note cards and wrote out scenes for one of my books. This to try and gather momentum. The story sort of falls flat midway through it, despite a really strong opening. I just can't seem to get the hero and heroine into the same room together for any length of time. If there was some way to plausibly lock them in a closet together so they'd HAVE to talk to each other, the story would probably pick up. So, I'm breaking out the Holly Lisle big guns - index cards.
I'm going to try to write one whole scene based on one of those index cards. The problem with my story is it needs more content. Plain and simple. I see it, I know what to do about it, it's just a matter of applying rump to chair and doing it. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
That's about it for me today. I need to do a bit of writing and some budget balancing. :P It's errand day - again!
I hope you all have a snazzy Friday!
