    I need some advice:

    Write a new scene for my current book.
    Or
    Do my taxes.

    Discuss.

    I usually charge $650 an hour for advice. But since it's you...

    Write the scene if you're feeling it. A good writing mood is precious. You'll never feel like dealing with tax forms, and you've got a couple more weeks. I squish stuff like that into times when I'm feeling particularly uninspired and grumpy anyway. (Already did my taxes, in between sorting through comments in SYW. Now I'm having fun with my ghost story.)

    crap -- that was kind of sincere. gonna ruin my reputation with stuff like that...

    Or hell -- just stay here and be sexually harassed.

    *starts music*

    Come on, RT -- work it.

    If you're getting money back, do your taxes. If you owe money wait until April 13 then do them.

    It'd be pro bono for RT. You, I'd charge $650 an hour.
