SCBWI Conference and Stuff

On Friday, I'm heading out to the SCBWI retreat. It should be cool. I'm very excited. The next day is the conference and should be jazzy. The schedule is here.

My eggs are just silent and still. The doors are not flying open at this point. I've got knock on more doors.

Have a blessed day, Miss J2!

"It's not happiness or unhappiness, it's either blessed or unblessed." Bob Dylan.

Egg Wobbles!

Hey, one egg wobbled!

How cool is my Easter egg?
You can't adjust the screen; it's really pink.
Hey, we didn't have red dye.

Gnome Correction and Wobbling Egg Update

Gnomes do not move the furniture at Microsoft. I'm told it is Smurfs and what was I thinking.

Writer is in swirling black hole! What is going on with the wobbling eggs? I mean it's Easter, Universe! The eggs fell silent last Wednesday. An ominous silence, like a dark and stormy night. The kind of silence that makes you start making up stories and feeling paranoid. The kind of silence that leads to an unfortunate number of tortilla chips with salsa. The kind of silence that leads to homemade apple pies made with crisp Braeburn apples. The kind of silence that leads you to say a little prayer that aliens are real and hope that they are going to get you off this blue marble (old Zoom fan). The kind of silence that makes you think that they think your work is cr** and they are too nice to tell you.

Today's quote: From the 1964 classic called Mosura tai Gojira (Godzilla vs Mothra) - Reporter Jiro Nakamura: "I'm not as afraid of Godzilla as I am of the editor... he's meaner."

Random for a Writer's Head

1. Justina Chen Headley's book launch was fab, fab, and fab. Her new book, Nothing but the Truth (and a few white lies ) is touching, provocative and at the same time comforting.

Quote of the hour: "We are all hapas , in one way or another. Not necessarily half-Asian, but trust me, we are all half-something. Half-good, half-bad. Book Smart, street stupid. Math guru, beach bum. . . Couldn't we all be in the 'check all of the above' category? "

Go read the book!

2. Rembrandt's life is a cautionary tale. Did he have OCD?

3. Computers are enough to drive anyone insane.

4. Try my favorite game -- I love this game.
