Smack In the Middle of Texas

The new chapters for the YA went out to interested parties a few days ago, so barring any ALA diversions (for both agent and editors) we'll hopefully hear something soonish.

I haven't gotten much fiction done since we've been in Texas, but I have had time to do a little reading. More and more I find my inner editor coming out whenever I read YA. The funny thing is, I never do it when I'm reading adult books. I was reading a book last night, and I found myself subconsciously changing words around. I'm irritating myself at this point.

We ventured out to Glen Rose, Texas today. We got to see some unusual residents pretty darn close up:




Sometimes, a little too close:


But the view was sure pretty:




High school rodeo is on TV right now, so I have to go.

Saying of the day: "That'll sure stick a horn in your Wranglers."

On this date: In 1945, Carly Simon was born.

Yes, the residents are quite unusual. But what (still) really amazes me is that super fast growing hair! It's like magic.
