By the way, I'm getting a knitting blog, so you non-knitters bored with my knitting excitement won't have to read this kind of stuff if you don't want to. And for those of you interested in this sort of thing, I'll keep you posted.
In other news, my life has been relatively uneventful. Is it wrong that recent national disasters have inspired pieces of the novel working itself out in my head? Well, the lead characters are the Goddess of Bad Weather and the God of Natural Disasters... who seem to have an exciting year planned for the world. Yikes. "The tsunami is over, and I'm bored," said Annie. "I know! Let's wipe New Orleans off the face of the earth!" "Great idea!" said Andy, as he destroyed the shark tank, sending hordes of aquatic carnivores to help clean up the carnage. No, I'm not planning to include that in the book. Seriously, this has been the year for crazy natural disasters. Fortunately, there are lots of charities you can donate to. Because you're a nice, caring person, right?
