Busy, busy little bee. Besides the unfortunate fact that I’ve had the phrase “Shakalaka!” in my head for about TWO DAYS now, things are going well. I finished revisions to my novel and sent it out. (Thank you so much, beta readers! Way to rock.) I haven’t even started on my Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse thing, but I have faith in myself. I also received an invite to an anthology (Yay! My first invite!) and that’s due in March.
I’ve been reading slush. I’ve gotten sorely behind on emails. But perhaps the most important thing is that I started writing that book on my son. It just feels right.
Now welcome to my private hell. I dare you not to enjoy this at least a little.
Writing a book on your son sounds like admirable work–best wishes with it.
Ok. That is SO messed up. I’ve had “Shakalaka” in my head for the last couple of days too.
Who ARE you, really? And how are you transmitting annoying phrases into my brain?
You have to do what is right. The book about your son is right.
Oh god…that song.
Awesome, Sade! I’m so excited and I can’t wait to read it!
Whoomp! Well, there it is again. Thanks for spreading the shakalaka love, good lady…
(Good on you on the book thing, though.)
I’m glad you’ve started work on the book about your son. Sounds like a winner. 😀
I’m staying away from the song, my head is already full of nonsense.
slamdunk- Thank you! And your blog is certainly fascinating. Who hasn’t come up with their own questions and theories concerning the crimes they see on TV? I’ll check back often.
Matt- Stop eavesdropping on my personal shakalaka thoughts! Pervert. Btw, you totally need to come to KillerCon so we can have an ultimate showdown! It would be so cool.
Aaron- Sure, we all try to pretend that we hate the song. But secretly we’re all a little bit delighted.
Nisa- Way to rock, seriously. When are you hitting the mainland? I’ll make it a point to come home.
Simon- I’ll forever think of you getting your groove on in your acid-washed jeans, thank you very much. And guess what? In my mind, those jeans have PLEATS! You know what I’m talking about.
Cate- Wise, wise woman.
I refuse to play the video because I’m sure that it will put something annoying in my head.
Great news, about starting the book about your son. A worthy project, for sure.
That’s a throw back to awesome if I’ve ever heard one. I like you.
So…it’s a more demure version of “The Humpty Dance?”
Also, it scared Roman.
Speaking of masks (this is irrelevant to this post but…), I came across this story that I enjoyed and thought you might want to take a look:
And his blog:
He’s also shopping his novels around and has a couple short stories published. The one I linked is the one I thought relevant to your ‘masks’ theme. 😉
Hooray for sending out the revised MS. Send mental shakalaka’s to the agent. go on… do it.
