I am grumpy.

I should not be allowed near other human beings.

There should be a sign around my neck reading, "Approach at Your Own Risk".

Other than that, things are good. I managed to work on my WiP for about ten minutes today, plus five yesterday. So, yeah, things are good.

My Killer Dog

Yes, he killed another rat. This one was much more heart wrenching since we had the rat for almost a whole year. And she didn't die right away. AND Katie was holding her when she DID die. Needless to say, it was a morning of drama in my house.

I stayed up till after midnight writing last night. It's still coming along great. So, yay!

Manuscript Report

I'm happy to report that I'm getting into the writing of the idea I've alluded to. It's not going as fast as I'd like, but it is coming along. I'll post when I hit the halfway mark (coming up in a few weeks, cross my fingers). I want this, my first real manuscript, to be finished in time for Writing For Young Readers in June 2010. I hear a lot of good things about that particular conference and I hope I'll be able to talk to some veterans in the national market while I'm there. I know my chances of getting published with this one are slim to none, but a girl can hope. :)
