I had a really clever idea to blog about this morning, but it was one of those ideas I had while I was driving, and it's gone now. Oh well!
I've been hanging in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit the past three days with my dad, who had open heart surgery on Weds. He's doing much better, although in a lot of pain. It's been hard to step into the role of caretaker with my parents. It's probably much harder for them to let me be a caretaker, though. My dad is doing much better today than yesterday. He has a lot of pain, so I spend a lot of time pressing on his giant stuffed heart pillow to help him cough. He had a really cute guy nurse yesterday, Mark. I think Mark might moonlight as an Abercrombie model, but he didn't take his shirt off, so I can't be sure.
ANYWAY. This morning C.J. Ellisson posted an edit of my NaNo excerpt on her blog, which is just totally cool of her. I was very nervous about this, since it's like taking off my clothes in Time Square. But she was very kind and gentle with me, and I am not ready to toss my laptop into the Ohio River just yet. So please, go check out what she said, and let me know what you think!
C.J. wrote Vampire Vacation, which I have been reading with interest. V. V. is an erotic UF, with a different type of voice than I am used to--but I like it! She writes in first person present, something I am used to with Urban Fantasy, but not erotic stuff. It works for me. But I probably need to not be reading this while I'm at the hospital with Abercrombie Mark wandering around.
