Various and sundry
We're watching a Xena: Warrior Princess marathon on Logo, a network dedicated to gay viewers. I always knew there was something special about those Gabriele-Xena bath scenes. Hey, I was just looking for the soap.
***Maureen is hosting a 72-er at Writer's BBS. Kinda like the NFG 69-er, but with three more words. Click on over if you want to read; if you want to play, you'll need to join Writer's BBS, but hey, it's free.
***I finished my first read-through-and-edit on my novel, The Brakan Correspondent. It took a while -- 651 single-spaced pages, and I can only get some decent editing time in on weekends. Now for the last step (I hope): I need to fix all the problems I've found on the first read-through. I'll be losing scenes, adding others, patching plot holes, axing evil wases, and replacing as many lame speaker attributions as I can with action tags. At the risk of sounding arrogant (of course, when has that ever bothered me?), I think this story is something special. I'm feeling confident an agent will pick this up and get it published. Will it make it into Paperback Writer's 2% that sell more than 5000 copies? Hey, right now I'm high enough on it that I can see it pushing LaHaye's Left Behind schlockfest off the shelves. Ya gotta dream big. D.
