Since we all (all = us unpublished people) are anxiously awaiting the day when we can call ourselves "authors" or better yet "Authors" (because that capital gives it more street cred, you know?), I would like to throw a shout out to a debut Author Alicia Bessette with her new novel Simply From Scratch. You can also read an interview with her over at What Women Write.
On another random note...since I need to keep it short and sweet so I can get back to writing and get myself closer to that "Author" potential... I have learned in my short staying-home-to-recover sebatacle (spelling?) that I could get really accustomed to this. Really. I only have about three days left of unabashed writing slam time before I go back to work (because Saturday is back-to-school-shopping-day and won't count) and I'm getting really sad about that! I feel strongly that I need to become financially wealthy so that I can continue in the manner that I have learned to love!! :)
But....not reality. And the downside of staying home? (crickets.... um.... ) Seeing the dirt. Working eight hours a day allows me to only see the dirt on weekends. Now I see it everywhere.
Oh, and online shopping. Amazon is just too easy...
