Monopolylogue Monday

monopolylogue ~ dramatic work in which one actor plays many roles

Last week . . . well, I’ll tell you. The good news is, I met all my writing goals, and quite easily I might add. I even got my serial chapter posted on time on Friday, which was all the more surprising because I was in a car accident Thursday night. My car slid through a stop sign and got hit from both sides. All things considered, I came out of it in pretty good shape – mild concussion, mild whiplash, major assorted bumps and bruises – which is more than I can say for my poor Sante Fe.

Needless to say I didn’t get much accomplished over the weekend, except for a lot of reading. Yesterday I had the great good fortune to win a copy of Adam Slade’s just released book A Reaper’s Tale. It reminds me of that show, Dead Like Me, only it’s better. It also puts me in mind of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, only better. Oh, for crying out loud. Just click on the link and go buy a copy! You won’t be sorry.

This Week’s Goals:

Tuesday: Part II of my fairy tale series will deal with Hansel and Gretel, a tale that deals with both poverty and abandonment.

Wednesday: Will feature a new Hump Day Hunk for your viewing pleasure.

Thursday: This week’s Passion for Poetry form is . . . um . . . uh . . . a surprise. To me as well as you. Normally I pick out the form on Sunday night, but I just didn’t get around to it. I have a feeling that whatever form I choose, it’s likely to be a short one. ;-)

Friday: Chapter 39 of the Space Opera. What’s going to happen to Nakeisha and Chaney so far from the city? Will Nakeisha be able to contact the Illezie?

Elsewhere in my week:

This week, my friend and I are going to see the new Robin Hood movie. But only if she drives. :-) Iron Man II was great, in case anyone was wondering. Robert Downy Jr. is perfect for the role. And if you stay through the bitter end of the credits, just like in the first Iron Man movie, then you get a glimpse of what’s going to happen next. And let me tell you, I can’t wait!

My own edits are going to have to wait this week because I really have to get working on the edits of my friend’s book. I’d meant to get it done over the weekend, but it didn’t happen.

I read three books during the enforced “taking it easy” after my accident, and I’m ready to start the Mammoth Book of Time Travel Romance this week.

Don’t forget about the Let’s Talk Blogfest tomorrow. My offering will be up HERE .

I'm ready for a nice, quiet week this week. How about you? What are you up to?

Robert Downey Jr. = Drool Fest 2010.

if only I wasn't married. . .and he wasn't a drug addict. . .and I think also married. . .

Sigh. Oh Well.

Oh geez, what an end to the week. I’m glad you made it out sort of okay.

Ciara: I thought your heart belonged to the late Fred Astaire?

Southpaw: Thank you. :-)
