Two New Releases, a Famous Cat, and Updates


ROW80: So so. I've been writing, but the editing front is not moving. And I haven't sent a query in a while.

NaNoWriMo: Awesome. I hope I can keep up the momentum. So many unexpected twists and turns happening in Captive of the Sea, Santiago and Mawdlen's story. And, I hope, the dreaded middle isn't so dreaded because I'm hoping there'll be some bedroom scenes round about then...

Life: Steady as it goes. I've been keeping up my schedule (having switched the Friday and Saturday tasks so that weekends are completely unplugged) through the first week of NaNo, and even managed not to get overly distracted by joining Twitter.

Exercise: I add this just to note that I've joined a gym for the first time in my life. No time like the present, right? Michael and Alex had some great exercise and health tips the other day. Anyone have gym advice for me?

Two new books out now-ish:

And the Crowd Goes Wild!, A Global Gathering of Sports Poems: an international anthology of 50 poems written by 50 writers from 10 countries
"From bowling to baseball, polo to ping-pong, and softball to soccer, And the Crowd Goes Wild is a unique anthology of 50 poems that pays joyous tribute to a wide spectrum of sports. Poets who hail from several nations, including Canada, the United States, New Zealand, and Ireland, share a mix of thoughtful and humorous perspectives on sports. Acclaimed poets Carol-Ann Hoyte and Heidi Bee Roemer have edited the anthology, and Kevin Sylvester's dynamic illustrations capture the highs and lows of the world of sports."

Finally, I'm adding another item to my next-time-I'm-in-London list: visit Samuel Johnson's cat:
