    (((Leigh)))) I hate moving under the best circumstances.

    ETA: I was really expecting one of those Monday bloodbaths but just crickets. Subbed my old book to a couple places just cause but I'm thinking maybe I should try to rewrite it as YA instead of upper MG. *ponder*

    (((Leigh))) Moving always sucks.

    Kellion, rewriting it might not be a bad idea. YA still seems to be pretty hot, depending on the genre.

    Have a nasty headache. Think I'm going to put S aside again for a while and keep working on NM. Maybe when my mood improves I won't think it sucks so much.

    Is it a headache or a migraine? Because I'm good with fixing migraines... though the cure may not let you sleep depending on how close you are to your bed time...

    Ink, is that Lilith in your avatar? I was just reading about her, and I'd swear I saw that illustration.

    The Pit always needed its own demon.

    Much better down here, if you can believe I'm saying that. It's WAY too bright, happy, and shiny up in Purgatory.

    soul, you can relax. The "less" in my name is just invisible.

    Thanks for the welcome, all. I'm less pessimistic than yesterday, but I'm sure that's only fleeting. Plus, I enjoy gallows humor.

    Leigh, thanks but it was just a regular headache. I don't get migraines, fortunately.

    lkp, I've seen that statue attributed to Lilith, Inanna, and Erishkigal before. My WIP is based on Sumerian myth, so I was going for either Inanna or Erishkigal. Preferably Erishkigal, seeing as she's queen of the underworld. And the underworld has a lot in common in with the Pit.

    It's an amazing relief. And I'm happy to go with Erishkigal, since I'm down on Lilith at the moment for various reasons.

    ETA for Cricket: I didn't think olives *could* go mouldy. I guess the Pit is a marvelous place of dreams where anything can happen.

    And I'm officially out there. Just send out a batch of queries. Let the nervous hand wringing begin.

    Mornin', Pit

    Considering I started off the requestless February with Kellion's Mystery Agent content, I entered it again for March for closure.

    Ink-tsk-didn't you learn from Red? The beams of sunshine in Purgatory will only serve to painfully blind us Pitizens.

    I'm pretty sure the Pit's query-go-round only features the more, uh, undesirable animals. Like the hyena. And the coelacanth. And ... I think the one you're riding is a three-legged butt-faced warthog. But you can call it a tiger, if that works better for you.

    Well, I only ever drink White Russians, though I guess we can call them White Pus-sians or something down here.

    Wow! such frivolity down here this morning. Nothing to report except that I'm not supposed to be here today because this is my last day to pack. Tomorrow, I make the 4 hour trek to my boyfriend and we can resume apartment hunting.

    I require levity today, to keep me from vomiting in my own mouth.

    Oy. Apartment hunting. It's a special kind of hell.
