Super Saturday!

So, this morning, after my editing rendevous (<-- haha, French!) with my story, I have to say, "THANK GOODNESS!" My last scene was so wimpy before, but I spent special time and energy on it, and authors, it's so much prettier now! I even bought new music just to help me get the mood right. I just had a little bit more editing to do this morning, and now it's AWESOME. :D Well, it's better, at least.
One of my weaknesses as an author is wimping out on the ending. And it's weird, because I'll get everything set up for a great climactic scene and when I write it, it's more like a 'pfft.'



BUT NOT NOW! I fixed it, golly-gee-willikers!



Woohoo!
ONTO other news.
AUTHORS, our lives are spent in novels/short stories/poems/etc. But what about those necessary social networking sites, when we feel we out to be clever and witty and oh-so-amusing? Well, worry no more!
This link will take you to a Facebook/Twitter status generator, made especially to be clever for you! Some random examples:
Bethany Yeager thinks that even if the voices aren't real, they've got some great ideas!
Bethany Yeager never puts off until tomorrow what she can do the day after tomorrow. (HA, so true.)
Bethany Yeager doubts, therefore she might be.
Bethany Yeager is a bibliomaniac.
Bethany Yeager is not tense, just terribly, terribly alert. (Ahahaha!)
But what if you're a guy? The status generator has you covered!
Arazmus Bartholomew is wondering if Chuck Norris is the reason why Waldo is hiding.
Arazmus Bartholomew is looking for a meaningful overnight relationship. (I admit it, I giggled)
Arazmus Bartholomew likes fruit baskets because it gives you the ability to mail someone a piece of fruit without appearing insane. Like, if someone just mailed you an apple you'd be like 'Huh? What the hell is this?' But if it's in a fruit basket you're like 'This is nice'! (OMGUYSITSSOTRUE)
Arazmus Bartholomew is hypocritical; he thinks that hippopotamuses are ugly.
Arazmus Bartholomew is seldom misquoted by his children. In fact they usually repeat word for word the things he should not have said.
Arazmus Bartholomew always asks himself: "What would Gandalf do"?
(I'm feeling a strange fondness for Arazmus Bartholomew. I may keep him around for a bit.)
And have you guys discovered this Fake Science site yet? :D Some of my favs...

OH, and all you Glee fans, did you know that Susan Boyle may be joining the show as a lunch lady?
We sometimes take English for granted
But if we examine its paradoxes we find that
Quicksand takes you down slowly
Boxing rings are square
And a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
If writers write, how come fingers don't fing?
If the plural of tooth is teeth
Shouldn't the plural of phone booth be phone beeth?
If the teacher taught,
Why didn't the preacher praught?
If a vegetarian eats vegetables
What the heck does a humanitarian eat!?
Why do people recite at a play?
Yet play at a recital?
Park on driveways and
Drive on parkways
How can the weather be as hot as hell on one day,
And as cold as hell on another
You have to marvel at the unique lunacy
Of a language where a house can burn up as
It burns down
And in which you fill in a form
By filling it out
And a bell is only heard once it goes off!
English was invented by people, not computers,
And it reflects the creativity of the human race
(Which of course isn't a race at all)
Have a super Saturday!
XOXO
