Things I did today yesterday

• Finished [Twenty-Somewhere] Episode 29: Escalation!

One night Claudia wakes up alone in bed. Well, alone with the dog Max, anyway. “Eli?” she whispers. If he had trouble sleeping and moved to the couch, she doesn’t want to wake him, but if he’s just wandering for some reason, she’d like to know that he’s there and safe. “Eli?” she calls again.

No answer.

• Typed up all the “Random thoughts I drafted but never posted” for Just Between Us. Here is the first (of four): “Trends”.

• Forgot to publish this post, whoops!

“The first duty of the novelist is to entertain. It is a moral duty. People who read your books are sick, sad, traveling, in the hospital waiting room while someone is dying. Books are written by the alone for the alone.”

– From a Writer Unboxed interview with author Anna Elliott, quoting Donna Tartt

    Yay, I’m excited that you’re excited!

    Cool beans. I hope your weekend is nice and relaxing, given the (lack of) customer service you’ve been dealing with. o_O

    I love the last quote. It’s intimidating but also nice to think us writers have a duty to entertain.

    I am also a big fan of the last quote–how many places do you see people read? It’s sad, but it’s true. There are a few of us out there plugging away at books but I always wish there were more.
