WHAT I’M READING
Not to sound like a broken record, but…
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
I’m slowly but surely getting to the end
And it’s not all bad; some of the character descriptions are cool:
Major de Coverly was a splendid, awe-inspiring, grave old man with a massive leonine head and an angry shock of white hair that raged like a blizzard around his stern, patriarchal face.
WHAT I’M WRITING
*whispers* I think I might have a title
It just popped into my head a few days ago and seems perfect, but I’m letting it steep (like a tea bag in my head) for awhile before I share.
I’m still determinedly plowing along in my rewrite.
WHAT INSPIRES ME RIGHT NOW
Quiet, unguarded moments.
The other day I drove by an elementary school in town (middle of the day) and there was a deer, munching grass on the front lawn like he/she didn’t have a care in the world. There are some things I miss out on by living in the country (public transportation, buskers, etc.), but I doubt I’d stumble across a scene like that in the city.
WHAT ELSE I’VE BEEN UP TO
Handstanding!!! I love that pretty much any word can become a verb, just by sticking “ing” on it.

I said on Twitter it was my 5 seconds of glory. Make that 3. I fell over pretty fast. But I had fun doing it!
