    But, I have to admit, it was funny. I couldn't stop laughing for a while after I read her reply...
    Laugh it up. I'll have my revenge when you least expect it.

    Lisa, you said you wanted to know the playlist, and when I heard this song on LA Ink (she'd gotten her tattoo done by Kat Von D - who the show is mainly about) and they showed a bit of her music video and they played it and it was PERFECT for how Maira feels about Kieran.

    Ooh, I'll check it later or tomorrow - I've made a mental note of the song.

    And I'll let you know if I find any songs that I think fit.

    I have my head full of hot curlers, thanks to my nan.

    The last time I had this done was probably when I was in third grade.

    Gah. Sooo heavy.

    I'm not sure, Karla. I'm thinking of ways to give it a sort of edge without changing the entire foundation.

    And, Taylor, I'm not sure. It's just like, nothing really stands out. If it were in a crowd of other Epic Fantasy books, there wouldn't really be anything in it that would make it very different...

    SADLY.

    Glo, did your email account get hacked? I got an email full of gibberish and a link for worldwealthbuilders.com, whatever that is.

    That's strange. As far as I know, it hasn't. I just checked my sent mail and there's nothing in it.

    I'm sure you can think of something

    If you can make it high concept, usually that'll really help. My three really original SNIs are all high concept I think - CMRH with the matchmaking Robin Hood, To Find Love with the dreams to find each other, Tattoo Love with the tattoos representing the MC's dream guy.

    I just tried to write one-sentence pitches and I think I did a good job lol. I won't post them on here though

    ETA: That's so weird. Is it the de.soleil one?

    Nah, I checked both. I don't know what happened. :?

    Also, yeah. I'm just gonna keep going through ideas until I find one that's appropriate. This could take a while...

    I feel like I'm writing Harry Potter with a few minor changes.

    Well, at the moment... I am.

    Well, writing Q33 NY in Microsoft Word, changing the size to 43 and the font to Windings is quite... Scary.
