Fess Up Monday!

Did you write? Did you sell? How many words? Tell, tell tell!

The Global Existential Threat Level has gone back down to GUARDED.

My personal existential threat level has gone down as well. It's nice to be back.

This week's inspiration are my favorite jokes. I hope they inspire you. too.

Q: How many surrealists does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Banana.

So, Mr. Hydrogen Atom rushes into the Periodic Chart Police Station in a great tizzy, crying, "Help, help, someone has stolen my electron!"

"Calm down, Mr. Hydrogen Atom," says the nearest Periodic Chart Police Officer, "are you sure someone's stolen your electron?"

Says Mr. Hydrogen Atom, "Oh, yes! I'm positive."

What's your favorite joke?

Wow, what a crappy two weeks.

But I can report:

One short story rejected and sent off to a new market.

Will be working on the edits for my first epublication, upcoming from Liquid Silver Books in 2007.

Starting an online class this week about survival of the "almost there" period writers suffer just before they make their big breakthrough.

Only about 2K written this week. One proposal sent off to editor.

Another proposal sent to an agent who requested it after reading the query letter. :keeping fingers crossed:

Welcome back Joyce!!!!!

The jokes? ROTFLMAO!

I lived in a house where we used to accumulate lightbulb jokes. Being a native NYC girl, my fave:

Q: How many New Yorkers does it take to change a light bulb?

A: None of your F#^k*#ng business!

Followed by my nerd fave:
Q: How many jocks does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Five. One to hold the bulb and four to turn the house.

As to writing, I nailed down my research points on the Emerald Tablet, Hermetic Magic, Alchemy and Scarabs. Did you know Issac Newton was an Alchemist? Nothing like mixing science and mysticism to produce out of the box thinking , and results.

The on line class sounds cool: who is offering it?
