More Ways to Keep You Occupied (and me not writing)

I’ve signed up to write another freebie short story for an upcoming Spring Fling promotion Samhain is doing. So I’ve taken a break from Andy’s story. Just as well as last week’s writing sprint left me completely burned out on them.

But instead of writing yesterday, I found myself glued to Twitter. (It’s EVIL I tell you, EVIL!) It’s not been any better this morning. I’ve been surfing the net. Reading people’s blogs. Like Lynn Viehl’s PaperbackWriter where she talks about some inventive “Out of Office” notes. Which reminded me of Steve Martin’s scene in Roxanne where he has to come up with “20 something better” jokes about his nose. Which meant I had to duck over to YouTube to rewatch the clip. (Yeah, I shared it with you.)

Or Wendy the Super Librarian’s blog. Wendy pointed me to the “The Hero Factory” where I could make myself into a superhero.

Of course, then I naturally had to make one for the heroine of Andy’s story …

I’ve got to finish this short now and get back to Andy’s story. I have to … unless someone tells me somewhere else that’s fun to play. Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? Buehler?

  1. Yeah, I heard of one yesterday. There’s a blog – http://bookblog.net/gender/genie.php where you can enter some of your wip text and see if it can identify the author’s gender. They say it’s pretty accurate. So, if you think you’re writing from a guy’s pov you might be surprised.

    I have got to go play with that superhero thingie. But after I get my character sketches done.

    BTW in the continuing saga of my Wild Blue tracking, just opening your blog took 17 MB of bandwidth and I didn’t watch but 15 seconds of the video. Grrrr. Unfair, unfair. Call the President!

  2. You know that gun looked like something quite erotic but I wasn’t going to ask, lol. YoWsa!

  3. Um the way that gun hangs in the first comic cover, ummm looks like something. LOL.

  4. LMAO, Marley and Amy! I hadn’t noticed that at all, but you’re right about that gun angle. (And I thought I was the only one who had their mind in the gutter!)

  5. Nope! Me too! Love the hero image. I think I may have to go do that too.

    Have fun writing the short.
