Fantastic Thing-that-happened-in-the-past-week #1) Since the book formerly known as The Tudor Tool is at something of an impasse (which could have something to do with the fact that I'm not...actually...working on it...), I've decided to start plotting out Two Blue Lights. Because I can. Also, I've begun poking at Web again. My theory is that one of these three stories will eventually succumb to my persistence and let me write it. Until then, I will be as stubborn as they are being. Muahahaha.
Thing #2) The competition is getting FIERCE. And by fierce, I mean you should enter and make it even MORE fierce. What am I talking about? My third Book Trailer Contest, of course! You-- you haven't entered? Um, all the cool kids are doing it. Just sayin'.
Thing #3) I've started compiling a list of songs that make me cry a little, because I've discovered that there are quite a few. After catching up on the series finale of Scrubs last night (which in and of itself is cry-worthy) they finished with a song that made me realize I cry to a lot of songs. Here is the list I have compiled, should you, too, want to be so overcome with happiness/joy/ohmygoshcute that you cry.
Song 1: Book of Love by Peter Gabriel (Scrubs finale song -- I also heart this song because, well, it's about a BOOK. Win.)
Song 2: My Skin by Natalie Merchant
Song 3: River Flows in You by Yiruma (wordless, but something about the melody makes me get all pinched-face and weepy)
Song 4: Nicest Thing by Kate Nash
Song 5: Goodnight My Angel by Billy Joel (still makes me think of Twilight a little bit...)
Thing #4) Can't believe I almost forgot this one: mi prima Nikki Hensley got me a book called Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott. So. Excited. Also, I now have my copy of Silver Phoenix. It, too, is in my nice little pile of books I shall read at some point in the near future.
