Woot! Finally got my writing in today. Yikes, I thought for a little while there that I wasn’t going to be able to get it done in time. Between allergy shots, a late dinner, and having to rush home to help my sis who got locked out of the house – it’s been a busy day! But the writing will flow (much like the spice), and it turned out great by the end of the day.
I wanted to be able to get some writing in while I was waiting at the allergist earlier, so on a whim I grabbed a notebook and found time to write. I realized just how ugly my cursive writing is though. It’s bad when sometimes you have to look at a word for a while so that you can figure out what you meant. x) Oh well! That’s part of the fun of writing by hand, right? The interpretation?
And here’s the hilarious video of Elijah Wood dueling versions of Sting with Stephen Colbert. I just love the way Colbert just practically gushes nerdiness here. And I have to admit, I probably wouldn’t do much better if I was in his shoes! What I wouldn’t give to hear the conversation they have at the end of the show though – darn it!

Talking about my novel, Suzie just came face to smirking face with Brakkis, the novel’s top baddie. They ended up having their confrontation in a wine cellar of all places – who knew that was going to happen? Certainly not me! I guess that’s part of the charm to writing from the seat of your pants – you get to be as surprised by the events of your novel as your readers are!
