A new diversion

I've discovered another diversion that I'll have to put on my list. You know the list, the one I keep in my mind and peruse during those moments when whatever I'm writing has me stymied--even for an instant. What's on that list? The usual stuff...Free Cell, blog-hopping, cruising the internet in search of "research." Research! *snort* That's the neverending list of useless information I've tucked away in my mind to be used someday in a story. Or a book. Or to compile the grocery list.

Anyhow, I have a new diversion. Hmm? What is it? I've been enthralled. Really, truly, enthralled. Pulled under the spell of the NaNo excerpts. I can't stop reading the damn things. Some of them are so well written it's amazing. Others, funnier than fuzzy slippers on an elephant. I've read a few that made me gag, but I won't tell you why. You'll have to read for yourself. And still others that leave me breathless.

Yep, my new diversion is, at least, an entertaining one. More entertaining than that stupid Spider Solitare game that lurks in this computer, just waiting for the right moment to entice me into its time-stealing web.

I challenge you to read some of the story excerpts. You, too, just may fall under the spell of my latest diversion.

thanks for visiting my blog. i just found yours. there's a whole bloggy world out there i was missing, which is really sad when you consider i'm married to an IT guy.

i also visited your web site. i am astounded by people who can conceive of, let alone write, a book. i have one friend who's published a book, and i feel like he has a shimmery, magical aura now!
