For those who celebrate, happy Thanksgiving!

Also for those who celebrate, happy Hanukkah!

For those who don't celebrate either of those things, have some pie. This whole 'it's not a holiday so I can't have pie' thing is just ridiculous. Every day is pie day.

So. Go have yourself a nice big slice of pie, because why the hell not?

Okay, I know this has nothing to do with writing, but I had to share it.

I woke up this morning to find that my street had a small river running through it. I know, I know-rain. Big deal. But I live in Tucson. Rain here is's a novelty. I am totally justified in running out and singing "What Is This?" from The Nightmare Before Christmas. (As for the rarity that is snow, well...that's another story.)

So. Rain. It rained yesterday, too. I'm impressed.

That is all.


PS: Today is the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Wow. Does anyone have a favorite Doctor? I love Eleven, because bow ties are cool. (Really, they are. But only on certain people.)

I was going to wait until Thanksgiving weekend (November 28th to December 1st, for those who don't celebrate), but my laptop is trying very hard to die. It would be just my luck that it goes to Cyber Heaven before I can post. The last one had the gall to die on a government holiday weekend. So, to be on the safe side, I shall post the synopsis to The Muse a little early. Lucky you.

"Writers everywhere talk about their muses. Those mythical beings that live in their heads, spit out ideas, and find amusement in a dripping wet author bursting from the shower to jot down the newest plot.
Alice Garden's muse has been with her since high school. They've written best-seller after best-seller, and things are smooth. But now something's wrong with Layne. Something that goes back to a year in high school when she didn't write a thing. And she has to find out what the problem is before her muse is gone for good.
Everyone deserves a happy ending. But not everyone gets it."

In all honesty, I could have gotten off my butt and finished this last year, but the world was not yet prepared for Layne's shenanigans.

It is now November. Yay.

A post or two ago, I promised more information on The Muse. You'll get it in bits and pieces, starting with the cover. The synopsis will be up another day. Depending on the life of my computer, you may have to wait until December. We'll see.

Here it is! Based on the title and the cover, any ideas on what the book is about?
