Re: NFL Sunday Celebrate or Commiserate here.

Well, the Jets/Bengals game is closer than the last one at least. But what's going on with Palmer? So many overthrows. Oh, man...and the kicker just missed another FG. Good thing I don't care about the outcome of this game very much.

All of the above. It really depends on the situation.

Re: Confession time

I should clarify, since I am old enough to do my own laundry (heh!) -- I'm visiting my folks -- my mom saw the grubby condition of the sweatshirt and took it away from me. You know, some things never change...

Re: researching dialects

My advice: I don't personally like too much phonetic spelling to indicate an accent (this is just my preference). I try to build off of how the other language is structured, because a lot of the time, it's word order and grammar that give away a non-native speaker as much as not being able to get th...

Re: Confession time

I know, I know. The quintessence of glam, that's me! Though I did let my mom wash the Chargers sweatshirt, after that epic beat-down of the Titans last night. I figured they didn't need the extra good look for Washington next week. Oh, and whoever said he goes out to the gym and puts his pj's back o...

Re: How much personal information to include in a query

Howdy Jordan! The personal information that you want to include is anything relevant to the topic of the book -- by that I don't mean, "the book deals with the emotional turmoil of losing one's parents, and oh, by the way, I'm an orphan," but say, your book is set in Germany and you've lived there, ...

Re: Outline or Out of the Mist?

I wish I could outline, but I can't ever think of anything that way -- the one exception being my recent whack at a screenplay -- and that was because it was a genre piece and certain story conventions were clearly dictated by that. Instead for the most part, I feel like I'm some observer of the sce...

Re: Surprised Kitty

I'm in China, and do you know what I really really REALLY hate about the Great Firewall? It makes it nearly impossible for me to watch Surprised Kitty as often as I need to...(the Great Firewall hates YouTube)
