Well, greetings from Disney World, all. I know, I know. But we go other places than Disney. Like this once we went to Downtown Disney. True story.

I know it must be daunting, Zelenka, but at least you know what direction you want to go in now. (Even if Val doesn't. )

Although, scrapping 12,000 words! I feel your pain.

Hey I used to work there. Of course, Disney Quest no longer exists. It was right next to Cirque de Soleis (sp). Why would you ever go anywhere other than Disney World?

PS: Have a Mickey ice cream for me, please?

Oo, what did you do at Disney? And yes, Quest is still there! It's fun. We took the kids last time, they loved it.

Why would we ever go anywhere other than Disney... Hm... All those kids... ::shudder:: We do love it, but hubby and I are ready to do something adult!

Uh... you know what I mean!

Sounds like History needs a mullet or something. (You can't see the hairstyle from the back, but you know that's a mullet.)

I think Dog the Bounty Hunter still has one right? Maybe it's just long and looks that way from the front.

So, a not-so hypothetical question. You spend a fun evening with friends and when you return to the parking garage, you discover one of your car's windows smashed in, the steering column in pieces where someone failed to hotwire the car, and your laptop bag missing with your new laptop, your current writing notebook, and the fountain pen you used for several novel drafts. What loss do you feel most keenly?

I must be a writer. Right now, it's a tossup between the notebook, pen, and laptop. &%*#&^(# thieves.

Chocolate, please? Lots of chocolate?

Heck with the car, those would be my top 3 too. Any of it covered in your auto insurance so you can at least get a new laptop?

Not sure yet. I've got an appointment with the insurance adjuster on Monday.

Note to self: don't leave ANYTHING of value in the trunk of the car.

That's awful, TheIT!!! Sorry it happened to you and I sure hope your insurance will cover it all - though some things just aren't easy to replace.


Hey! Namatu! Long time, no see. How're you doing?




Happy St Patrick's Day. It's a good excuse to tuck into extra chocolate.

That is terrible, The IT. If I could find a way to email chocolate I would send some.

I'm just back from Deggendorf, Germany, with a little bit of time in Munich this morning (definitely going back, looks so nice there). Was at (should I admit this?) another SF convention there, with the same actor I seem to be stalking round Europe these days, but Munich seemed to have some really good chocolate shops, even in the station. And marzipan. I really miss the stall that was on Wenceslas Square at Christmas with the different flavoured marzipan. I might have to make an emergency food run to Germany!

Best marzipan comes from Lubeck, sort of near Hamburg. It is sooo good.

So very quiet! How's everyone?

I've been buying books today. My credit card is currently whimpering under the couch.

And John Hart's new book, Iron Horse, is selling cheaper in hardback than ebook. Explain it to me all you want, I will never understand ebook pricing.

I'm editing and beta reading. Also, because I miss my MTS stuff, working on a query letter even though I don't need it yet. I just kind of needed a dose of fiction writing for a break from non-fic editing. I don't know. I may put it up in query letter hell.

Someone has tried to explain ebook pricing?

I think it is too new. It'll even out one of these days. I'm guessing...

Let us know if you do!

Yeah, I've read lots of blogs and people have tried to explain it. Sometimes, though, life just doesn't make sense.

Profound words of wisdom.

To their credit, it is a complicated issue. There has to be a balance between what the author expects, what the buyer expects, and what each feels the property is worth versus what sort of exposure the author is looking for.

That is, a new author looking for exposure will need to sell their books cheaper than one who already has an established audience.
