Happy Valentine's Day!

I changed the faceplate on my phone for the occasion. Actually, it was mainly because it was two in the morning and I'd just re-found all the other faceplates and was thoroughly impressed since the heart one was all holographic. Oddly, the hearts seem to rather tattered.

I think I've fallen in love with my phone again. I bet none of the new phones can change their faceplates! Well, maybe they can, but I doubt they'd let you take them apart to do so.

I have to write a poem about love for poetry class tonight. Wish me luck! Maybe I'll write it about my phone.

Progress report:

I've documented all the scenes in the first part of Meese that I need to write/rewrite. Gonna get right on that.

I hope all of your Valentine's Day is more exciting than a different design on your phone!

Now I even look professional!

Oh boy, my own website. (

So this is love.

Just working on individual pages. I've put up two short stories, and you can find them in the "Freebies" or here:

A Different Kind of Magic (pdf) - A very short short story.

Cat and Meese (pdf) - A short story in which Meese meets Kitty.

I took the liberty of cross-posting "Cat and Meese" in Freebies, Kitty, and Meese. Because I can.

Speaking of cross-posting, all blog entries I do will be cross-posted on both this blog and my other blog at .

To the right you can see some links I've added (on the web-site). More to come as I get settled in.

Sick As a Dog

Don't you just love asthma? The way it partners up with a chest cold to make nice little death rattle when you breath is absolutely lovely.

Oh well, I'd like to think I've had some productivity during this time. I mean, I wrote a whole 700 words for Meese! I feel so special. I've even edited two-and-a-quarter things so far.

So, updates.

I'm getting a website. A real website to call my own. Chatting up the web-designer about it, but so far the plan is to have a blog-style website like Cherie Priest, Lindsay Buroker, and Kevin O. McLaughlin--but fear not! I will be cross-posting blog entries to here as well.

I got my first rejection! I feel so special--like a real writer now!

Is there really only two-ish months of school left this term? Holy shit! How has it gone by so quickly? Soon I'll have to work on the term-paper. Maybe this time I won't wait until the week before to start it.
