1. What about the Space Jump! I was totally enthralled watching the Jump live on Sunday. Every time I re-watch the footage, I still am in awe. I included the video from Red Bull Stratos, in case you didn't see the Jump, or in case you want to see it again.
My question is - what does he do now? How do you top a supersonic freefall from twenty-four miles above the Earth?
2. How-To Books. I am halfway through four different how-to books. The Plot Whisperer is my most recent acquisition, because I need to get started on the sequel to Finding Meara if I'm going to be able to release it next year as well. (I know. It sounds weird, considering I haven't even published the first one yet.) So far the focus has been on me and my writer-ly tendencies, and overcoming weaknesses (such as procrastination.) I've only read Chapter One, though.
3. People are strange. I attended a staff development training last Monday, and then chaperoned my son's field trip last Friday. At the training, I noticed woman preening each other. You know, fixing each other's hair, straightening clothes. At the field trip, I saw the same behavior from the little girls. It made me wonder if I'm strange, or if the adult woman who were preening each other were strange. Is preening normal female behavior? Personally, I prefer to take care of my own grooming, thank you very much. If something is amiss, I do appreciate a heads-up, but I prefer everyone keep their hands to themselves.
Well, my head now feels like it's going to explode, so I am ending this post. Thanks for reading through the rambling to this point, if you made it that far!
What did you think of the Space Jump?
Are you reading any good How-To books right now?
