Sparkles and Butterflies and Unicorns, Oh My!

There's a joke in my writers group surrounding unhappy endings in books or films. Several of our members can't stand it if a story ends without resolution, or in a sad and/or depressing way. As we like to say, their stories have to have "Rainbows and Unicorns". I am one of the few who actually enjoys melancholy storylines (as long as they're done well) and thereby, I often have to give a "no rainbows and unicorns" disclaimer when recommending books or films.

You can understand why this made me giggle.

Calvin On Storytelling

The blog has been quiet this week because I've been hard at work on the final draft of my novel! The end is near! I'll be back next week with more posts, including my review of  The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict by Trenton Lee Stewart. But for now, enjoy a little Calvin and Hobbes...

Bonus Challenge: What do you think Calvin's explanation of "The Noodle Incident" was? Leave your story in the comments. Extra points if you can Twitter size your reply at 140 characters or less. :)

Off Switch? Ha!

This is a fairly extremely accurate representation of how my brain works.

It Made Sense in My Head...

My 2011 NaNoNovel went a lot like this. I think my husband can probably sympathize with Linus.
