A Brief Reprieve and a Little Fun

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.

Jocelyn, how did you get the picture onto your banner? Dumb question but I'm trying to change mine up a little and don't know how to find a picture sized like that. Carol

You're Watership Down!
by Richard Adams
Though many think of you as a bit young, even childish, you're actually incredibly deep and complex. You show people the need to rethink their assumptions, and confront them on everything from how they think to where they build their houses. You might be one of the greatest people of all time. You'd be recognized as such if you weren't always talking about talking rabbits.

That's scary....

One of my brothers actually created the banner for me. I'll look at the code and try to figure it out.

Thanks, Jocelyn. Book Quiz. I always wanted to be Anne of Green Gables when I grew up and now I am.Bright, chipper, vivid, but with the emotional fortitude of cottage cheese, you make quite an impression on everyone you meet. You're impulsive, rash, honest, and probably don't have a great relationship with your parents. People hurt your feelings constantly, but your brazen honestly doesn't exactly treat others with kid gloves. Ultimately, though, you win the hearts and minds of everyone that matters. You spell your name with an E and you want everyone to know about it.
Too fun but I'm not always as honest as I should be, tend to hold things in more than Anne ever did. Carol

Congrats to your brother and his wife! And to you, too, Aunt Jocelynn!

I'm Lolita. Whoa.

Considered by most to be depraved and immoral, you are obsessed with sex. What really tantalizes you is that which deviates from societal standards in every way, though you admit that this probably isn't the best and you're not sure what causes this desire. Nonetheless, you've done some pretty nefarious things in your life, and probably gotten caught for them. The names have been changed, but the problems are real. Please stay away from children.
