Re: What are you listening to?

Not only do I love to listen to music while I write (to get in the right mood), but all of my characters have theme songs. Unbreakable, by Fireflight is my MC's theme song:

Re: Book trailers: who makes them, $$$, and are they worth it

A friend of mine did a trailer for her self-published book, Follow the Cowherd Boy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0n5dlGPz0k. It's actually very beautiful and if I hadn't been planning on purchasing the book anyway, I would have been tempted to do so based on the trailer alone. I think they can be ...

Re: Top 5 Favorite Christmas Albums?

I'm about to be made fun of, but my favorite Christmas albums are: The Disney Christmas--the one with Mickey and the chipmunks, et al. Love it! and The Hanson album, Snowed In. I am by no means a fan of Hanson, but their O Holy Night/O Come All Ye Faithful/Silent Night medley is amazing. http://www....

Re: So...Star Wars or Star Trek?

At first, my reaction was: Star Wars! No question about it! But to be honest, where Star Wars clearly dominated with Episodes IV-VI, the latest movies just stunk. Star Trek, on the other hand, started out with a cheesy storyline and bad special effects, but their last few movies have been nothing bu...

Re: Holiday Plans - anything fun or just shopping?

I am going to spend some much needed time with my family. My little guy is two, so this will be the first year he really gets it and my littlest guy will be celebrating his first Christmas. Lots of fun to be had!

Never underestimate the power of poo throwing.
That is true. I'm sure that If I ever had poo thrown in my face, I'd be of a different opinion. Note to self: stay away from monkeys.
