Are We Done Yet?



                 
              
                     




                          IS





 

  And more

                                                                                       




A lot of this:

                       


                     and a little of that:




         And all I want is this:




Now, I'm not quite feeling this bad...
                                                           

                                               But I sometimes feel like this




To make matters worse, I've read that average fiction novels are anywhere between 70,000 and 100,000 words.  Well, now what do I do?  Should I worry about the numbers, or divide my novel into two? Take a gander at my word count...

And being so engrossed in the daily activities of editing...I find it hard to read anything else. I find mistakes all over the place, even on my grocery store receipts! 


While perusing the net for cute photos of editing/re-writing, I came across a couple of cute cartoons...Now don't get me wrong, 

             But... this is just too cute to pass up...(Hi Amy!)

I wish we could do this!



I'm sure there are times she (my editor/sister-in-law/dear friend, Amy) feels like I am not listening when she makes suggestions...and she'd like to say this to me:


But, in all seriousness, I would like to thank my "editor", Amy, for all her awesome help, suggestions, ideas, and encouragement throughout this whole process.  She is such a sweetheart, through and through.  I love you, Sis!  

But seriously,





Have a great week!

Movie Games!


We're all familiar with hundreds of famous movie quotes.  Below are some of them you've probably seen many times over.  The first part of the game is to see if you can name the movies that are pictured below with quotes in the captions of the photos.  If you cannot get the ones that are pictured, you've been living in a cave.  Seriously.




Hello. My name is Forest. Forest Gump.
I see dead people.
E.T. phone home.
Luke, I am your father!












I'm Captain Jack Sparrow. Savvy?

Why so serious?                      

I'll be back.

I made him an offer he couldn't refuse.


Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
Here's Johnny!




Well, Clarice-have the lambs stopped screaming?





 














    
    And now, guess where the following quotes  are from?

         (Hint: 3 of them are referenced above!)






1. Excuse me, I believe you have my   
     stapler.


2. I may not be a smart man, but I know      
     what love is."


3. Roads? Where we're going we don't need  
     roads.  
 
4At my signal, unleash hell.

5.The question isn't "what are we going to do," the question is  
   "what aren't we going to do?"  

6. You think I'm gorgeous... you want to kiss me... you want to date   
     me.

7.  Listen to me, if we break quarantine, we could all die.

8.  Do you spend time with your family? Good. Because a man  
     that doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real   
     man.    

9.   If I weren't going to be a writer I'd go to New York and pursue 
     the stage. Are you shocked?   

10.   I've seen things you've only seen in your nightmares. Things  
      you can't even imagine. Things you can't even see. There are     
      things that hunt you in the night. Then something screams.   
      Then you hear them eating, and you hope to God that you're  
      not dessert. Afraid? You don't even know what afraid is. 
   
 11.  This is ridiculous. It's crazy. I feel like I'm babysitting, except  
       I'm not getting paid.  

12.   Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. 
      Prepare to die. 



Have fun, and post your answers in a comment.  I'll come back next week and post the correct answers. (Or, if you really can't stand waiting, send me an email!)
