I hope everyone had a good Mardi Gras and is now ready to give up something for Lent. I'm not Catholic, but I've had to give up a lot of food lately on account of my teeth. Had oral surgery last Friday and braces put on the week before that. Not the most exciting news but what is pretty cool is that between eating less and exercise I've lost 18 pounds since November. Some days (like today) the numbers on the scales increase, but my clothes still get looser and looser. I'm really happy about that. Plus I finally started writing in earnest again. It's a little weird, like trying to get to know an old friend again, but it's coming back.
I'm also getting ready to begin edits on Butterfly Unpinned, co-written by B. D. Dark -- or should I say mostly written by her? BU was her idea, and she had to wrap up the ending on her own basically while I flaked out with real life stuff for the past few months. Hopefully I'll post some tidbit from it soon.
