Crazy Stuff

“There are three rules for writing a novel.  Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.”  W. Somerset Maugham

I keep getting readers to the blog who look up the strangest things, but check this out!!

http://www.lexic.us/definition-of/strangle

A joke pic of teenage me with my annoying little brother and it made a definition page about strangle.  Uh…  maybe I should delete that image, eh?

I promise.  He’s still alive.  And still annoying. <g> 

On the writing front, not much is moving.  It’s sooooo frustrating!  I want to be writing, but I have too much pay work, too much housework, too many social things with kiddos and with my extended family since we’re trying hard to repair relationships.  We won’t even discuss shopping.  Let’s just say–I’m not even close.

My anniversary is tomorrow and the hubby and I decided to just shop for the kids since it’s our only free night. 

I did completely reread the book that appeared to the right.  Wired.  I needed to reacquaint myself with the characters and plot.   It has a lot to do with the PIRA and well, they sort of disbanded.  I think I’ve come up with an alternative suspense plot in that respect, but the main suspense is a hacker tracking a hacker. 

You would not believe how out of date my research is on that one!

Still, I think I’ve come up with rewrites on that part, too.  Now, I just need a few uninterrupted days…

The ideal situation is a request for a full from the three agents who still have partials.  Then I can tell everyone the second book must be done to sweeten the deal. 😉 

This one is more romance than DOTT and wow, it’s hotter than I remembered.  Go me.  heh heh

How are all of you doing during this busy part of the year?

About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.

    I’m less frazzled and behind than I was but since my son has no power still, continue to have five extra people in the house, errands on the way home, dinner to cook. Miss my alone time and writing time. Not much writing happening right now. And the weatherman mentioned more ice but at least it’s after Christmas. Carol

    I didn’t see the ice mention. Probably a good thing, eh? Sorry you still have so many. Can one of them help by cooking?

  3. I’m busy busy–but at least I’ve done all the shopping. Well, I think. It seems like everytime I swing in Walmart to grab a couple small things–I end up with a $150 bill. How does that keep happening? Must stop.

    I’ve managed to get a few words down the past couple of days, but I’m so uninspired. Today, I don’t even WANT to write. That’s truly odd for me. I did take a nap this afternoon; I’m afraid I’m coming down with a cold. Ugh.

  5. Hey, Rinda. Happy Anniversary to you and your sweet, sexy hubby. I can call him that, I saw him in a kilt. lol. Sorry you’re so busy, but glad to hear you’re rewriting Wired. It’s fun to look back and realize something is better than you remembered.

    I’m way behind. No decorations up at all. Have power and that’s a good thing. Might go light on the decorations…Barry and I are going to Branson for Christmas.

    Check out http://www.theworldofmyth.com under “Movie Reviews”. I’m Pixilated Polly. Let me know what you think. Last night I went to see The Kite Runner. Good, but brutal film about Afganistan. Not sure you would want to see it. I cried a lot.

    Anyway, have a wonderful Holiday!
    Love you!
    Sara
