I’ve been given a brief reprieve. I heard from my editor and she was sick over the weekend, so my edit letter has been delayed until the end of the week. I now have time to finish painting my kitchen. Whoo-hoo! Yeah, I’m a lucky chick. Unfortunately, it’s a double-edged sword. While I may now have time to complete a few personal items, my deadline for the final, final draft of NIGHTWALKER isn’t moving. That’s okay. I thrive under the pressure.
I also have a trio of white pines and a pair of knock-out rose bushes that need to go in the ground. I just feel guilty planting them in this horrendous heat that we’ve been suffering through recently.
On another personal note, I am now an aunt! My younger brother and his wife just had their first child, a beautiful little girl. I’m still hoping that her brown hair will develop a little red. There’s a distinct shortage of red heads in the world.
And one final bit of randomness, but it is fun, I swear. A friend sent me a link to Blue Pyramid, which has an excellent Book Quiz. Alright, so I am dork. But didn’t you always want to which great literary work matches your personality? And the best part is that it is only 6 questions!
I have also pasted the link to the site below in case the hyperlink doesn’t work for you.
I took it and I match with:
Prufrock and Other Observations
by T.S. Eliot
The site described me as : “Though you are very short and often overshadowed, your voice is poetic and lyrical. Dark and brooding, you see the world as a hopeless effort of people trying to impress other people. Though you make reference to almost everything, you've really heard enough about Michelangelo. You measure out your life with coffee spoons.”
I thought it was a pretty good description of me. So, take it. Come on, you know you’re curious now. Leave who you are on the comments! I’m dying to know.
Be sure to check back tomorrow. I'm preparing to post another short story and I'm thinking up a writing contest for later this week. I just gotta come up with a good prize.
