My Inbox is Going To Get Full...

Currently Reading: Call me crazy, but I picked up one of my dad's old literature texbooks (1952). I'd forgotten the short story, Death of Red Peril, by Walter D. Edmonds and the poem O Captain! My Captain! by Walt Whitman. Jabberwocky (Lewis Carroll) I read in my HS English class; I'm on Meeting with a Tigress by Jim Corbett in the non-fiction section. Coming up is the play Julius Caesar, and a section Anny will appreciate, King Arthur (there are 4 stories, but I'll bet none of them are like hers!) and Silas Marner by George Eliot, which I only read a part of in HS.

E-book: Lucifer's Angel, by Kaenar Langford. Haven't started it yet; I'll probably begin it later today.

I joined two new chat groups today, Fallen Angel Review and Ellora's Cave. I already belong to Indiana Writer's Connection, Love Romance Cafe and Novel Sisterhood, and the days I'm extremely busy, my inbox is loaded with digest mail.

I may have to adjust my settings if the mail starts to pile up, and many other authors are on some of the same loops. I may just lurk for a while, reading excerpts, until I feel confident to join the conversations.

I'm thrilled by the EC group; it means I can let other authors know what I think of their books, and even enter a contest or two. And just from reading some of the excerpts already, my TBB list is now beginning page 3!

Weather-wise, we're supposed to get 5-7 inches of snow tonight. The kids may have a snow day tomorrow, which means I will be fighting for computer time. But I'm definitely going to settle in tomorrow night, when AJ and company take over the FAR group! I hear my list growing again...

Time to get back to work. I'm on chapter 3 of the new wip, so I'm doing well. I'll go back to posting word counts:)

Snow day here too. I have my own puter though and J is grounded. Caught her reading and playing games in her room well after bedtime.... several times now.

Thanks AJ...saw your name on the calendar and decided to lurk and maybe say hi tonight:) I'm still in promo mode myself, so what the heck...can't hurt, and maybe I'll pique someone's interest?

(chuckling here)Kelly, check back for today's post...hint: Kids anticipating Snow Day...

I loved Whitman's Oh Captain My Captain. I still cry everytime I read it.

I get bombarded with digests from chat groups too. I am signed for some that do daily digests, but when there is a big debate or a chat going on, I will get digests every five minutes. So I always elect to not get updates if I know there is going to be tons of messages. You can always change it back after.

Good luck with the WIP and the snow day. Mine is still icky sick so once again, no school for her and no work for me.
