Random Wednesday updates. (It is Wednesday, right?)  
1.  This is the last day of the March Madness Writing Challenge.  My goal was to write 25 scenes before the end of March.  I made that goal!  I actually wrote 26 scene and did some development work, too.  Thanks, denisejaden , for organizing and motivating!

2.  My ARCs are coming!  My ARCs are coming!  I'm only getting two, so I won't be able to share.  But, yes, bound galleys for FREEFALL do exist and I'll be gazing at them in person.  I'll post pics as soon as they arrive.  :-)

3.  I had a dream last night that I fainted while in the freezer aisle at Safeway.  As I was falling to the ground, I had just enough time to wrap my purse strap around my arm a few times so that no one could steal it while I was unconscious.  Ever since my hot pink/turquoise hearts purse containing one, two, and five dollar bills as well as half-dollar and silver-dollar coins was stolen from Chuck E. Cheese when I was around ten, I've had a lot of concern that it will happen again.  Even in my dreams, as you can see.

4.  A few minutes ago, I was staring out the window at clouds.  I saw one that looked JUST LIKE a poodle glancing over its shoulder.  In the fifteen seconds it took for me to grab my camera and take a picture, the wind had already blown its head off its body.  It was very disappointing.   See?

5.  All right.  In reference to #1 here.  The truth is, I'm kind of petrified now that March is over.  I have all these rough scenes and I want to do something amazing with them.  But I tried to open a Word doc to start typing, and had a jolt of panic and could hardly breathe.  I'm going to need to set some very specific April goals to work toward.  The sooner I can write this book, the sooner cool things can happen with it, of course.  It's all up to me here.  I'm doing this.  Yes.

You sound really hyper right now, lol!!
26 scenes? really!! The only writing I did this month was two short stories!!
Poor cloud poodle, no head :( But maybe it'll drift off and become another cool animal. When I first saw the picture I thought, Shark Cloud.

Well, my 26 scenes are rough. I mean, ROUGH. But yes, 26!

Hmmm. Shark cloud. I could maybe see that. ;-)
