Whoa! In tonight’s shocking episode, Amanda performed some acts no cop ever should. By the second commercial break I was bidding her character farewell, because there was no way NYPD could keep her on the force. Then, in a fabulous plot twist, the writers turned everything its head.

I’m still here! It’s been a rough week on top of a couple other rough weeks, but I’m still around and thinking I might even survive this. I hope to be back this weekend. In the meantime, please enjoy this video of a kitten meeting strange creatures.
It’s time for some Bookanista thrills and chills and no one does it better than my fellow Apocalypsie Gretchen McNeil. She makes me crazy giving me characters I fall in love with and then putting those people I now care about in heart pounding situations. Meanie!

The Macguffin is a story trope, the concrete goal that everybody in the story is chasing. Obviously not every story has a MacGuffin, but a great concrete goal can make a story much easier to write and understand. Charlie Jane Anders has a post on io9 asking about the greatest Macguffin in SF an...Read more of this blog post »
Spicy Chicken Soup
The ingredients for a spicy chicken soup were calling my name from the pantry, so I answered with a can opener. Paired with corn muffins, this quick crock pot recipe was a hearty mid-week supper.
