8 Random Things About Me

I actually saw this on Myspace once.

1. I'm the first person in my family to decide to take Spanish instead of German.

2. I'm going to be 30 when my youngest sibling enters kindergarten.

3. I am a chronic overdrafter.

4. I prefer stick shift to automatic and like to drive like I'm at the Grand Prix.

5. I actually do belong to a dance troup.

6. I'm allergic to some metals and plastics.

7. I've found three errors in the one book I've published (you think I'm going to tell you what they are? Fat chance!).

8. I'm a closet fan of sappy, badly done Hallmark fairytale movies.

Writing and ADD

I am now convinced that I suffer from the writers' version of ADD - I just don't want to spend a long time on any one project, and if something isn't blowing up or dying or making whoopee, I get bored in the middle of writing it.

I'm still working on the Victorian thing. My pen ran out of ink. Anyone ever try to find a purple pen in Guatemala?

I've done the unthinkable and started a new novel. And it's not even science fiction or fantasy! I'm not sure you could quite call it a Victorian romance, but it's Victorian-ish.

*thunk, thunk, thunk* Melanie, what are you doing?
