So, I just finished reading Nice to Come Home To by Rebecca Flowers. It was really good and she is the kind of writer that immediately makes me want to throw my computer away and open a beef jerky stand. The book kept pissing me off, in a "dammit, why can't I think of stuff like that" sort of way. So I was rather relieved when I went to her website and read that she thinks her work sucks the moose most of the time. In some ways I think it's better to not know that your disgustingly clever.
But the funniest part is, in reading her website, I realized the book was a modernized version of Sense and Sensibility. I must note that Sense and Sensibility is my favorite Jane Austin book. Here's basically what I sounded like after reading that. "It...what??? Wait...no. That's...really? But...oh, wait...yeah...okay...there's the thing with the sister and the.....OHHHHHHH, DUH!!!!!"
It's a good thing I'm cute, cuz not so much with the brain sometimes.
Anyway, I'm still working on my newest creation, which is totally strange and twisted, but it's keeping me thoroughly entertained. And I seem to be entertaining my trusted source too (you know who you are)...okay, okay, it's Amy Ellis! You'll see her snarky comments here in the blog. She's a writer too, which is the only reason I let her read my stuff in the "first draft/bag of poo" stage. She understands.
