Richelle Mead, in addition to being an author I enjoy reading, also has a sense of the absurd that would fit in well with my group of misfits, if I do say so myself. Not to mention that she has an eerie physical appearance to my friend Jenn. And today, Richelle has instituted an alarm system to denote when she is under deadline pressure and generally a victim of chaos in her life. She calls this Condition Squid. The stage past this is apparently DEFCON Narwhal.
I think this is an EXCELLENT idea, and everyone I know should adopt this rating system immediately! Why? Why not, I ask you!
No, really. Why not? Ha! You don't have an answer either. See?
Here we are on Friday, and due to unexpected busy-stuff at the Real Job(tm), I still sit here 500 words shy of my 30K goal. That's just....sucky. But, I do have a three-day weekend looming before me, so hopefully I can get something accomplished.
I mean, it's not like I can go out to eat or anything. (this is me, making my forlorn face)
On the submission front: One query reject in the box today. Somehow, those just don't have the power they used to.
