I don't have major plans or anything. But I'm simply glad it's Friday. I don't do mornings, and I RELISH the days that I can sleep in past six something.
Baby chicken is doing fine with the homeschool stuff so far. *grinning* It is, after all, only the first day. But she has done three math worksheets, six English worksheets, and written three paragraphs on two different television shows. Next week, I'll have a lesson plan made up. I think I'll do that Sunday.
I'm working on my short story submission for WCP Torrid Fall Fires. It's coming along, but I think I may zip over and work some more on my Erotic Romance. And I believe I'll take some time for myself this weekend and just read.
OH! Almost forgot! I can't remember if I blogged about this or not. But I read Cell, by Stephen King the other day. It reminded in parts of Dreamcatcher. But I found myself, for the first time, studying his words and not just reading them. Fascinating. Utterly fascinating. I feel as if I can pull out the pieces of Stephen King in his dialogue. There's something about the lilt of certain words and how they're used.
In the back of the book, there's a handwritten first chapter of his next book to be released 10-06. The title is Lisey's Story.
And I'm going to sound like a goober, but oh well. There is something about reading his work written in his own hand. He makes his a's different. The a's that make me think of penguins. Does that make sense? LOL They look just like I typed them on here. And his asides. And his underlines. It's as close as I'll ever be to seeing his work in progress, I'm sure. But what insight.
I don't handwrite my work often. Just usually notes and whatnot. I tend to type from thought to fingers. How do you do it?
