In other words, odds and ends because I’m too unfocused to write a normal blog post.
Privileged Lives just got a review and a five-star rating on Goodreads. Along with the suggestion that the reviewer would like to see a sequel. Fancy that! Yes, there are a lot of questions that could have been answered in the book, but that would have required another whole book. No, I didn’t do that deliberately in order to pave the way for a sequel. They were just side issues to the main plot. But, yes, I’d thought about it even before the review. Maybe for this year’s NaNo?
Being social. I’m not. I rejoined Google+ a couple of weeks ago and have hardly been back. Joined Pinterest a few days ago, with a somewhat skeptical attitude, and find that I really like it. It’s the ultimate in eye candy, a social bookmarking site for graphics. It’s incredibly simple to use, and just the place to make collections of graphics that I find on the web. I think about 98% of what’s there is about clothes and other girly stuff, but that’s easy enough to block out. I’ve read that it’s a recipe-hunters’ paradise, and I’m definitely not going there. I was dubious about whether my rather weird interests would attract any attention, but a few of my pins have been liked or repinned already. If you want to take a look at how I’m using it, go to my boards. You click on each graphic to enlarge and see whatever text it contains, then click for further enlargement. Warning: this site is addictive.
Within the Silence creeps closer to the finish line, even though the finish line keeps backing away and saying, “No, not yet.”
