At some point everyday, there is a great desk chair dash to see who gets in it first - me, or Mini. Of course, since I spend more time IN the chair than Mini, he always wins. I'm, well, slow in a mom-can't-run-for-jack kind of way.
Then again.... Mini, poor Mini. You don't yet realize mass always wins. And ticklebugs. *wiggles fingers* Ticklebugs always win too. The chair will.be.mine.
I'd just taken a few pictures when I turned to take the camera over to the computer - of course, Mini chooses that moment to do the chair dash. I never have a clue when the race is about to begin. Most of the time, I just turn and the race is on. Well, he beat me yet again, but this time I had the camera. So I captured the chair thief in action. That pose is what you call the "backward flop into chair seat" quick shot. It bests me everytime. See that knee? That is to keep Mimi's from sitting on him in the quick shot process. Smart kid. :P
Today I'm slacking like there's no shame. Mini and I have spun in the desk chair, colored and completed a few mazes, and jammed to some mp3s. I've toyed with a few plot ideas - wrote them in my idea folder - and I've fished through a handful of plotcards, looking over what I have down already for my UF.
This afternoon, I plan to sit down with my laptop in the den and read some of Holly Lisle's Scene workshop. If it's anything like her Create A Plot ebook - which I highly, highly recommend - it's going to be a wealth of information. If you're interested in checking out what books I'm talking about, go here: http://hollylisle.com/ She has a "holly shop" filled with e-courses for writers. From my experience, they are worth every penny. Even my hubby, who usually pays no attention to my writing habits, noticed a huge leap in my productivity. Nuff said.
That's it for me. I'll have more info about the freebie story this week - I promise! Soon I'll be posting the cover and blurb, and the free download will be added to the Midnight Moon Cafe site during the next update: www.midnightmooncafe.com
Happy hump day!
