    Okay, I'll be in bed by then, so can you PM me it or something please?

    I want my first dance to be 'God Only Knows' by The Beach Boys or 'Just Like Heaven' by The Cure - two of my favourite love songs of ALL TIME.

    Yay! Karla!

    I think Glee would be good for NaNo if I ever do it again. It helped SO much earlier!

    Rachel/Puck (not Rachael, remember~! Rachel), otherwise known as Puckleberry, is my OTP. I mean, I love Finchel like a fish loves water, but Puckleberry is just... I can't even. They're a couple of hot Jews, it's natural!

    Hiya guys

    Realized earlier I forgot a piece of lore that applies to Weeping, so now I get to go through every single word of it thus far and make sure I didn't actually disregard it in-text. Fuuuuuuun times.

    Oh, Ari, that's the whole point of first drafts. Just keep writing, and during revisions, keep a notebook to record any inconsistencies and then change them.

    It's just a tiny thing, so I don't mind checking. Have to make sure he didn't do one specific thing. Then I will write more--finally managed the first kiss last night, so I get to move on to the exciting things that come next. I've been sooooo impatient to get to this part.

    How are things on your end?

    Your first dance with your husband/wife is what I was referring* to

    Blah. I really need a crit partner/beta reader but I'm so ashamed at my punctuation mistakes.

    This article at WSJ online has me angrier than I've been in months. If I hadn't had YA novels, my ED might have landed me in the hospital-- or worse. Because of YA, I had something to reassure me that it was okay to feel the way I felt, and that it gets better.

    Oh, that thing about how dark and evil it is, you mean? That article already made me rage.

    Calm down hun. Can you give us a link to the article? I want to take a look. Or are you talking about the one that has been going around. There was a pretty long thread about it here in the YA section I think?

    Yeah, she wrote a follow-up to defend her point. http://online.wsj.com/article_email/...DEyNDgyWj.html
