Oh wow. I almost forgot to blog today. What’s up with that?

Yesterday, I went to meet my new insurance agent. May I say she’s a delightful, classy lady and I’m THRILLED to have her as my insurance agent? She gave me a helluva deal too. Thank you so very much, Classy Insurance Agent Lady! If you live in my area and you’re looking to switch insurance carriers, I highly recommend her. Drop me an email and I’ll share the info and don’t forget to tell her I sent ya.

Anyway, I signed all the papers and she had to ask a few questions for the policy. The conversation went something like this:

Her: Have you ever had a DUI?
Me: No.
Her: Have you ever been convicted of a felony?
Me: (pause) Not that I know of. Unless I was driving while under the influence, then maybe.

I’m not sure she thought it was funny, but I thought it was quite hysterical.

Of course, the talk turned to my illustrious writing career (stop laughing) and the fact I have two books coming out this year. Well, one novella and a serial. But the serial can count as a book right? RIGHT? Anyway, I get such funny reactions when I tell people the name of my book – Talk Dirty To Me (from Samhain Publishing, July 2006! WOO!). I get either a wide-eyed look and a “Really?” or a broad grin and a “I’ve GOT to read this book.” I guess people think the first one because (a) I look so sweet and innocent (boy have I got them fooled) and (b) I don’t seem like the type to write “dirty books” (see aforementioned parenthetical insert).

And OH? It’s March 1?

I tinkered with my dragon story yesterday and – get this – I wrote A PAGE AND A HALF. Now, don’t fall out of your seat. I know it’s hard to believe I wrote a whole PAGE and a HALF. But this huge, folks. Huge, I tell you! So the next time I have a Starbucks Plotting Session with the gals, we’re going to talk about the book and try to get a rough plot outlined. I know I know. I’m a scener/pantser. It may not work. But I’m willing to give it a shot. Besides, if I don’t write something, they’re going to come after me with torches and pitchforks. Not really, but you know what I mean.

Okay…that’s it for now. I’ve entertained you enough. GO. Have a day. 😉

I wish you all could be inside my head. The conversation is sparkling.
