I am master procrastinator, mistress of the citrus.
I am seriously disturbed.
As you may have noticed, I have a new blog template, and I’m torn between nostalgia for my stripes and pleasure with my blog’s sleeker new lines. (Perhaps a mentality echoed by my readership, because while a few people have visited, not one said, “Nice digs, Jan. Cool.”)
In an effort to help us snuggle in, I searched for reassuring images that would scream ”romance” “citrus” and “Tartitude”. Naturally, one image rose to the forefront… A certain double-O agent… One whose name must not be allowed to slip from the tag section in my sidebar…
But look what I did with the poor man, LOL.
Forgive me, oh Photoshop, for I have sinned. Orange should not be used in such a manner. Profuse apologies to Mr. Craig, his handlers, and any members of his legal team while I’m at it.
Sidenote: as I’m writing this, look at the photo recommended by WordPress which has the caption “Daniel Craig at the Orange British Academy Film Awards.” *snork*
Anyway, a few housekeeping matters:
1. There’s still time to enter your name into Dee Garretson’s giveaway for WILDFIRE RUN.
2. Note that Hilary Wagner will be here October 6 for her author interview - I’m certain she’s still coming, and the fact I haven’t yet received her interview answers is an omission soon to be rectified.
3. It seems like it’s been an unsettling week for many people. If you write, and if keeping hope alive is an important thing, a few helpful links:
Create Your Own Category - a reminder by Donna Cummings of how to pitch stories if they don’t fit into neat slots. Funny.
Lastly, a reminder by the editor of Author Magazine that by becoming hypercritical of others, we become smaller and make our own writing suffer.
ETA: I’m past the point of left-brain/right-brain conflict, as in, I am no-brained, but I’m always interested in your thoughts. Have you stumbled across any particular links this week you’d like to pass on? Specifically links that will enhance hope?
