"We solemnly swear we are up to no good."

 So, as you can see, I didn't post my music Monday. Yes, I have a reason behind this. A few in fact. The first is rather dull, it being our library isn't opened on Monday's and it is their internet I've been commandeering. (In better news, my friend and I shall be getting internet hooked up at our place on Thursday. I thought I could get by going to the library every day, but with all the publishing work I have to do, I realized I needed my own internet. Also she needs it for school.)

I don't think the Doctor was overly fond of Martha sometimes.

 Now, reason number two which has a more interesting, though not much, story behind it. SOMEHOW, how, I have no clue, I've managed to twist both of my wrists. I now have them wrapped up in ace bandages. It looks like I got into some kind of fight or did something exciting, but I sadly don't have any life and death adventure story to tell about them. Pity. (This is not to say I am not disaster prone. I've gotten into many dangerous scraps but only walked away with some scratches. What is the point of falling off a cliff if you don't break something so everyone can ask how you did it and you can share a cool story?)

No, this is not the Doctor's family generation picture.

 Now, moving on. I'd like to thank everyone who comments even when I'm a bit slow to read your blogs. I try and get to your blogs every other day, but I've been noticing even if I miss a day some of you will comment anyhow. This really has made my day lately, making me all hopeful that you like reading my blog enough to haunt it even if you don't know there is a new post up.

Well, are you coming or not?

 Also, one of you asked me a question and it was such a good one I thought I'd answer it in a post as others might be wondering the same question. So, in answer to Anne-Girl, who asked if I would be sharing the pictures you voted on on here, this blog, I will say this. I still have two character pictures to reveal, and then I will be sharing with you the machines and other creations that will be appearing in the book. However, I am considering revealing a couple of the art work that will be in the book, not all, but a few. That said, I don't know when I will be doing this as I am waiting until it gets closer to publication. (And trust me, they are worth the wait. I have some of the pictures hanging on my wall so I can gape every day at Clair's wonderful drawings.)

What? I'm being serious! Stay put!

 I have some writing updates for everyone. I have finally been able to get back to writing, a little. (I can't do much until my wrists are better, mummy's orders. I'm supposed to let them heal, which I'm rubbish at doing.) But I have written a little in The Broken Blade. The characters have told me a tiny bit more of what is going on, not much, but at least I have a better idea of what is going on. It is still slow going though, which I suppose isn't a bad thing. 

If you don't understand this picture you need to go watch Doctor Who. Right now.

 Now, I should go before I strain my wrists too much. 

 You probably all know, more or less, where this quote is from. I shall explain it more later when I can write longer. 




  1. Aw, I hope your wrists get better soon!

    I don't understand the picture, and much as I would LOVE to watch Doctor Who, I am currently only in possession of the first series and have yet to meet the Tenth Doctor. (This grieves me much, I mean, the actor is Scottish, and if you can't tell from my blog, I AM OBSESSED with the Scots. :)

    lol God bless!


  2. Thanks for answering my question! I can't wait to read this book when it does come out!

  3. Sorry about your wrists! And hope your Internet is back soon.

  4. Dear Jack,
    I haven't commented on your blog in a while. I am sorry. :( Lately I've been lazy and not replying to comments or commenting on other blogs. "How Wuud!" I know...Not to mention my brain has been wrapped all around Jason Bourne and chases and escapes for the past couple days......which doesn't help matters. at. all!

    I hope your wrists get better soon! :l And I also wanted to say that I loved your post a little while back with all the photos from How to Train Yo' Dragon!! :D Squeeee!! I love Hiccup. *nods* Probably my favorite cartoon next to the disney Robin Hood.

    Ah, me.....well, I need to go and reply to comments and such, before people think I'm a jerk and intentionally ignoring them. *grins guiltily* Ta-taa!


  5. Oh goodness... How awful that BOTH your wrists are sore! I know how you feel. Once I feel on the monkey bars and broke one wrist and sprained the other. I hope they feel better soon!

    And I LOVE you suggestion of "live long and prosper!"

  6. Jack,
    It's odd, I've heard one person say that the plot and everything about it was sooo obvious and they knew how it would end and what was going on....and then I've heard people like you who say they were so confused and didn't get it AT ALL.

    I wasn't really confused much at all when I saw it, but I also saw it with my parents who have seen it about 6-7 times since it came out in 2002. *grin* They're probably my Mom's favorite movies. :D

    I'd watch it again, if I were you. You'd like Jason, I think. :D


  7. I can't wait to see the pictures! :D Claire always does such a good job.

    Also, I love the photos in this post! Doctor Who for the win! <3

  8. Having sore wrists stinks! I hope you feel better soon. I'm glad you're getting back into the swing of writing :)

  9. Sore wrists would drive me insane!! No typing. No piano. No poking my sister (she's so ticklish). I feel for you!! Get better soon! And good lucky with the resting part. :D

    And I LOVE your blog!! If I see you've posted I do a little dance. It is pure brilliance Jack!! :D Keep up the awesomeness.
