Gorgeous morning! I bought a brush! My hair has been detangled! I took time to groom! Does that mean the book is done?
Anyway, I’m just, you know, doing the mummy-dance, still entombed on my bed with the laptop glued to me and empty cans of diet coke everywhere, along with cats and a poodle and God-only-knows what else. The brush actually came in the mail from Amazon.com, because I’m pathetic and didn’t want to take time to drive ten minutes to the drugstore to buy a brush—because oh, that might interrupt my writing. Which, given that I took twice that long surfing the internet, doesn’t make much sense.
But things get weird near a deadline. I get weird.
I’ll be done soon, though, and then I’m taking a break. I would love some book recommendations! I read The Magicians and Mrs. Quent on the flight home from China, and adored it. It’s like Jane Austen meets…magicians. Fantastic stuff. Also, Rosemary Clement-Moore has a new book out called Hell Week, which is a sequel to Prom Dates From Hell. Excellent series, which my cousin also loves. Here’s what it’s about:
College Freshman Maggie goes undercover to write an article about sorority rush for the newspaper, and gets more than she bargained for when she pledges a group of girls with supernaturally suspicious good luck. She has to use her wonky psychic abilities to solve the mystery and shut down the Sigma Alpha Xis before they make her stay on Greek Row permanent when Hell Week rolls around.
Hope you’re all having a great day! By the way, if you would like to read the chat transcript from my visit to The Knight Agency site, you can find it here.
