Good morning! Another meme for you… but first, for all my writing friends out there. Check out today's PaperBackWriter. She has an excellent article on marketing. I'm not there yet (and, as Marianne will tell you, if I don't get something finished … or the ones I HAVE finished, queried, it won't happen. And that goes for the rest of you too. WRITE!), but I plan on remembering her advice. Check it out.
A week or so ago, Jill (CDPJ) tagged me for this very long meme. I'm sorry it took so long, CDPJ, but I'm finally doing it!
1. You can press a button that will make any one person explode. Who would you blow up?
Paris Hilton. She needs to grow up and realize that she has to be responsible for herself and her actions
2. You can flip a switch that will wipe any band or musical artist out of existence. Which one will it be?
I honestly can't think of anyone. Maybe rappers in general ;-)

People who cut me off in traffic

Sean Connery… but now, not when he was James Bond

Davy Jones, but not as he is now, back when he was in the Monkees

Wonder how I could work it into my latest WIP
22. You have George W.Bush and Osama bin Laden locked in a small room together. It's airtight, so both are gonna suffocate anyway, but what amusing weapon do you give them?
