American Idol

Who tells these people, "sure, you have talent, get up in front of the nation and make an idiot out of yourself in front of millions so the judges can then humiliate you?" What are they thinking. I didn't watch this time but already heard about it. I did watch Comanche Moon and I'm enjoying it.

Made my word count yesterday, always a good thing. Found a good article on self editing to maybe help me do better editing on Bloody Murder when I finish the first draft. I really need to re-edit Agatha Ann and The Spider Wizard and send it off to Tor since they are looking for middle grade fantasy.

I entered Idol at writers conference last year, but that just didn't feel as personal an insult as American Idol appears to be. As a writer I've developed a thick skin anyway, not that rejection and criticism don't hurt but I get over it fast and get on with it. No time to whine around.

I wish you good luck with the manuscripts. I am to be typing down the manuscripts of three new stories and hope to find magazines for publication.
