"How did you die?" "We, er, drowned in a bathtub." "All three of you?" "It was a big bathtub."

 Guess What!?!

 I forgot to tag anyone...and, well...I'm in the middle of a cover, and work, and preparation for NaNo, and get the idea. So, I'm going to do something I've never done before. I tag anyone and everyone who wants it. Because you are all wonderful readers. 

 Some of you asked about the worm. Here is the answer for those who haven't heard it before.
 If a worm gets cut in half it will grow a new head on the half without a head, but it will still be the same worm. So, you have two of one worm. Now, you can cut the same worm in half, and those ones in half, and those, and those, and so forth. But it is still the same worm no matter how many times you cut it or it grows a new head. 
 Therefore, I want to be a worm so I can cut myself into half a ton of times and...have a whole city of ME! (My brothers say it would be a disturbing city, but I think it would be grand 8-D)

 Now, lastly before I get back to work on the cover and answer comments...I guest posted! Here is the link.

 Anyone else doing NaNo? 




  1. I normally would be in the middle of not planning my plot (I try to plot it out every year, but I normally end up tossing all of the ideas and fly by the seat of my pants anyway, so I try not to think about it to much.....)

    But since the first two weeks of November my family will be on the road and then putting to rights a brand new house, in a new state.....I decided it might be better if I bowed out this year!
    God luck with your attempt!
    I'm sad I won't be part of the crazy this year, but there is always next year!

  2. A whole city of you? Can I come and visit? :)

    I'm doing NaNoWriMo as well. Still have to finish plotting my novel (I've got half of it done) but I'm looking forward to the challenge.

  3. I am doing a NaNo (a statement that scares me to pieces). I'm really not sure when I'm going to go with it, or how far into the month it'll survive.

    But I can have hopes, right?

    Teehee, good job forgetting to tag people Miss Jack! ;)
    I might just take you up on that tagging myself thing.

    God bless, and further exclamations that result in a traditional fare-well wish,

    K-Minty Plink-a-Dink

  4. Robyn Hoode,
    Aw, thank you so much for your help on the cover! All input helps a lot! (I like the fonts of the Percy books too, mostly because it means they are his books.)

    I want to read a book called Blade, so long as it is about a blade and not a man named Blade, though that might not be too bad either...

    Oh! I did not know titles weren't copywritten! Thank yOu!


  5. Bella,

    I have a bit more money now, so I am REALLY close to getting Mark of Athena again. I am bouncing up and down and trying to save my pennies. I hope though Jason and Percy get along, it would be sad if they didn't, because they would be cool best friends I think.
    (Who do you think Jason should, er, end up with I suppose? Renya or...UG! I forgot her name!!! PIPER! Ha! I remembered!!! I like Piper better, but only because Renya was grumpy, having a bad day I suppose.

    The Doctor Who party is everywhere now it seems. I've seen a lot of posts today.

    Have you seen Ten's death yet?


  6. I'd never thought of a worm like that before! I can see how that could be useful. I mean, think how much writing you could get done if you had more of you to help!*Scratches Head Thoughtfully* My, that could be pretty epic!

    I'm probably going to give NaNo a try this year. I've only done it once before. I *Ahem* did not reach the word goal. And I sort of hate that story...But I did get a lot or writing done! LOL.
    I tend to lose my plot when I write too much too fast. But this year I think I'll just write something that's sort of been bubbling away in the back of my stove-er, mind. We'll see.


  7. I shall be NaNoing (as I believe I posted earlier) and I will look for you on the site ;) If I ever remember, that is.

    Ah, I think a city of me would be grabd as well. Such stimulating conversations!

  8. Um Jason should be with Piper. (Sorry Reyna)

    Soo... you said you would tag ANYONE. does that include those of us without blogs? Maybe answer the questions in the comments?? *Wink*

    No I have not seen Ten's death yet. I know I will cry. I saw "Journey's end" and I am still not over it. David Tennant's sad brown eyes are so heartbreaking :( But his grin when he's talking to Rose was adorable :D Why didn't 10 and Rose kiss?! 9 and Rose did....

    The Doctor blog party is fantastic. I am enjoying myself heartily.
    God Bless

  9. With a whole city of YOU, I guess you could get a lot done. But I'm apt to agree with your brothers, it would be *kinda* disturbing. :P But think of how many books you could write!

  10. Not a man named Blade, a boy.
    It's the second in my series and I am doing the third for NaNo. Are you on the adults site or the kids?

  11. That was a great guest post. I especially liked the bit about taking a basic plot and giving it a twist. And the authors you referenced are all really fresh and innovative.

    I am doing NaNo this year too. I did it for the first time last year, and made the mistake of working on a historical novel. Inspite of all the work I did before hand, I still spent a lot of time frantically looking up dates, and timelines, and calendars, and staring at historical maps of Dublin. This year I am going to work on a fantasy sort of story, based, in part, on all of the piper's cave legends, and Tam Lin, and a little bit of the selkies thrown in. Here's hoping a purely imaginary will be easier

  12. You should read The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. It is very good and pretty short as well.

    Tell me what you think of the third E-Lock episode when you watch it. =)

    I haven't read Wentworth or Mr. Knightley's books.... Although Mr. Knightley's book (Emma) has been on my reading list for awhile.... And in the movie he's played by E-Lock! He's a great actor, Jonny Lee Miller.

    I think the reason I like Donna so much already is because so many other people like her. xD But I really like her hair. And how she's not like Rose. And not like any of the other companions either... She seems like she can take care of herself pretty well and is a moral clock for the Doctor, maybe. *shudder* Why oh why did Doctor Who HAVE to have a giant spider??? Tolkien was already cruel to us in that regard....

    Goodnight. =)

  15. Bella,

    Oh good! (I've not met many who have read Percy Jackson so I don't know what the popular vote is, but Renya vs. Piper, I like Piper better.) But I've this bad feeling Jason like Renya better, I mean, will, once he gets his memory completely back.

    Yes, you can do the tag in a comment, I wouldn't mind 8-D Oh, and John tagged you, he asked me to tell you. It is up on his blog.

    WAHAHAHAHAHAHA 8'-( Journey's End was sooo sad! I felt bad for Donna. Rose got Ten, in a way, and Mickey was happy, Jackie was happy, everyone was happy, and DONNA CAN'T REMEMBER ANY OF IT!!! Not fair!
    Ten and Rose kind of kissed...but yeah, you're right. They never actually did...because Rose wasn't Rose when she kissed him.

    I need to go over to the Doctor Who party again, I got behind. 8-( Tragic.


  16. Robyn Hoode,
    What is your series about? Or have I asked? I get so lost sometimes...I like his name though.

    I'm doing the adult one. When I started they didn't have the kids, which was a pity as I would have liked to start there, so I've stuck to the adult one since. Which are you on?

    Oh, that is all right about your name, I knew it was you 8-D Mind reader and all...


  17. I'm on the kids site.
    YOu already asked what my "Drake Elliot" series was about and I had emailed you the synopsises for the first two books, I think, or at least the first one. In short, it involves breaking a curse and stopping a villan from taking over the world (because villians seldom have other schemes) ;)
    Mind reader, Jack? Is that a something you develop or were born with? Or was it a gift from an immortal benefactor (i.e. your fairy godmother)?
