You are what you eat

Writer's Block: Get up

If you had to eat the same breakfast everyday for a year (and it would be prepared and served to you), what would you choose?

Pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, a sea of syrup ... basically all the stuff I can't eat anymore.

On a kinda related note, the doctor thinks I have acid reflux, and if the med he put me on works I might have to take it for the rest of my life. Which isn't as bad as what was happening to me before I started taking it, but still -- I hate taking medications.

Starting on Storm Chaser edits

Storm Chaser is now listed – under the correct author’s name, after my original penname was accidentally used – on the Whiskey Creek Press “coming soon” page:



Meanwhile, I’ve got the manuscript back for edits, along with a note that time is short! As a result I’ll be mostly vanishing from the internet for several days, although I’ll be available by e-mail – let me know if I miss anything.

     I'm going to cap off TwisterPalooza with an original fic of my own -- one set in the Storm Chaser universe -- but I won't have time to finish it until those edits are done, so I'm extending the writing challenge until the second week of May.   I only have two official entries besides the stories Emily and I wrote, and I hope to get a few more, so if you're interested the details are here:  http://ozma914.livejournal.com/439157.html

Missouri flooding

The entire town of Morehouse, Mo, where Emily grew up, is under water. I mean, the whole town. Her grandparents' place, her dad's home, everywhere she walked and played, everything. The four lane highway that goes by the town is closed, completely flooded. The police station and town hall are flooded, and from the images it looks like water has made it inside the fire station and is close to contaminating the town's water supply. There haven't been any serious injuries that I'm aware of, and I know all the people effected by tornadoes further east and south have it bad, but please take a moment to keep everyone in the flooded areas in your thoughts and prayers.
