Contest: Princess and the Pea

This will probably be the only time you will see a short story of any kind on my blog.  Back in the day I did them with ease. Now writing one is like . . . walking up a hill, in a snowstorm without shoes or a coat.  And poetry . . . I love my flist too much to put you through that torture.  My poetry stopped when I left the angsty days of high school.  I am a novel gal.  But for an ARC, I am willing to do my time in the snow.  If you would like to participate go to the link for the rule: community.livejournal.com/merry_fates/95549.html

I Know. I Know . . .


You got up this morning, rushed to your computer, (bypassing your coffee) loaded LJ, and readied your eyes for my Wednesday post about psychology and evil people (PC word would be antagonists). But alas, it ain't here. I know. I know. You should just go back to bed. What can I say?  Oh! Really what can I say?  Well, if you must know, last night I had to pick up a friend at the airport, her flight was delayed. As powerful as I am, I have no power over airplanes. Yes, it sucks to be me. And yesterday I met with a CPA. And I spent one hour on hold with the unemployment office and never spoke to anyone. I must say, however, that the voice recorded message was calm and pleasant.  I never considered yelling at or throwing my phone.  In fact, I may have fallen asleep. Anyhooo, all this to say, that I will post the psychology and mean people post tomorrow.

I will leave you with this lovey resource, Grammar Girl:  grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/   She posts twice a week, one is usually a podcast. Any grammar rule you can think of she covers. She is a genius. Really.  (Okay, I have not seen her IQ score, nor have I tested her. I just think she is a genius because she knows more about grammar than I (or me or I . . . whatever). You should add her to your RSS thingie.  Go on do it.
