BOY is the first draft of my chapter 13 crappola! The good news is that there's nowhere to go but up from here. (And no, I don't mean to higher, more enthusiastic piles of crappola.) :)

Yes, but not all draft chapters are of equal crap levels. :)

You begin to realize life is surreal as you look forward to sitting with a bag of frozen peas on your back. And your beloved cat rushes to your chair, first to nuzzle you, but mainly to lick the condensation on the pea bag. :)

Well, that's Chapter Eleven edited for draft two. There are 34 chapters of Tryfling Matters at the moment, so getting there! Up to about 82,000 words.

Hey guys-- can you help my brain for a minute? I'm trying to think of the word-- I think it starts with an "in-" -- that means when you go to a new school or job and they give you the rundown on the first day of what you can expect there? It's NOT initiation. But that's all my brain is coming up with.

Much appreciation in advance for your help.

Every time I see this ad, I think this is what Gordon Ramsay's Mom would look like.

One of my all time favorites still has to be the dancing alien one http://blog.leadcritic.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/Aliendancelmbad3.JPG

Got to hang out with some buddies and also got a few pages of editing done on chapter ten. I would have gotten more done on the book if I'd realize sooner that I needed to scrap most of what I had there. But thankfully, even realizing that is progress.

My friend gave me Thor posters today. It was a good day to be mighty. :)

+Michelle C This was the Halloween Batgirl costume I was talking about. Nothing major, but it was fun.

Well, if the book writing gig falls through, I will have to further investigate my crime-fighting marketing.

Zimba used to greet everyone at the door. Then we started bringing dogs into the house ;P Figaro isn't scared of dogs, so he is the welcoming party all by himself.

Kitty love... On me. The grooming went on forever. It was like a cat hair salon that I was trapped under. :) The shot came when I called their names. #caturdayeveryday

Cuddling has taken a while to work up to, though Harry and Alice always did like each other.

Another little BB King thing I always enjoyed... His appearance in Blues Brothers 2000. I dare you to hear this song and not dance in your chair.

Story
Tagline
Author by night, marketing writer by day. So like Batgirl but with less crime fighting and more carpal tunnel.
Introduction
Greetings, good people of G+! I talk about a variety of things on here, including pop culture (movies, quirky television, sci-fi), and writing and the writing process. I also really like olives and Cheez-Its (though not at the same time) and I suffer from mayo-phobia, the rare fear of white slimy condiments touching my sandwich. I currently have two books of a planned humorous sci-fi trilogy out called There Goes the Galaxy. (The books are called There Goes the Galaxy (book 1) and The Purloined Number (book 2).) If you're curious about that, I hope you'll pop by my website at: www.jennthorson.com

My own favorite writers include: Terry Pratchett, Jean Shepherd, TH White, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, Lewis Carroll, Martha Grimes, Charlotte Bronte, PG Wodehouse, Stephen King, Jim Butcher, Harper Lee, Edgar Allen Poe, and I'm sure a hundred others I will remember once I'm not at a computer to list them.
Bragging rights
Was one of the only kids in first grade who had to go to remedial gym class. I know all the words to Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky, and refrain from trotting this out at parties.
