Happy Blogiversary!

I just realized that I started this blog on October 27, 2008. I'm glad that I didn't kill it back on April 20, 2009, but I'm also glad that I stopped trying to write in it every day.

By the way, if you're wondering why I'm writing in the blog right now, it's because I promised my (potential) editor a sample chapter and book proposal before the end of the month, and that means everything is more appealing than working on the book.

Half Minute Horrors

cs10 told me about a fabulous new children's book called Half Minute Horrors. They were inviting new submissions, so I wrote one for cs10.

Do not say to your robot friend,

"There is more than one way to skin a cat,"

Unless you have more than one cat.
