Spamalot

I went to Spamalot opening night Tuesday. It was a ton of fun. Spamelot incorporates much of the plot-line and iconic jokes from the Monty Python group's hit movie The Holy Grail, which splatters the legends of King Arthur with quirky British humour. You'll see French soldiers taunting Arthur and his merry men, you'll see a confrontation with the Knights who say Ni, there's something about a watery tart who throws a sword, and so many of the signature lines that Monty Python fans love to tell and retell.

Revision


My agent just sent me a list of revisions for my new YA novel, Parallel Thief. The list is not overly extensive, but very specific, which I love. Most of it has to do with the characters; they need some work. My protagonist’s relationship to people needs further fleshing out. There are also changes to be brought to the storyline to increase tension and suspense. All good notes.  So with these changes in mind, I start draft 3.  =)

Writing a Novel in 12 Stages


I am presently at stage five, writing the query and synopsis. I don’t need the query part, because I already have an agent. But I still need a synopsis. So this is what I’m working on this week. The blurb is done though. You never know when you’re going to need a 30 second elevator pitch. Best be prepared. =)

Back from Vegas


Actually, I arrived a couple days ago. But I had such a bad cold and was so sick that I had to delay this post, which proves that a not everything this that happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. I caught this nasty bug over there, probably on the chips when we played roulette. Still, I had an amazing time. It was a four-day-long birthday bash. Not mine, but one of my friends. I won’t tell you what we did. But if you look at the photo, you’ll figure it out. ;-)
