The Seven Deadly...

...Key Commands.

Ha! Thought I was gonna say something like "Sins," didn't you? (or "Zins" if you're a wine-oh)

Well, Ben sent this to me, and I thought it was hilarious. It was also very appropriate because I've been spending a ton of time pinning down my characters' flaws for book 2. Why couldn't it just be this straight forward?

My one is "wrath." What's yours? :D

On another, happier note, today is Pay It Forward Friday! (Thanks Matt and Alex for hosting) The idea is to introduce all of us to everyone else, and I'm to link to three blogs you guys should check out. SO HARD PICKING ONLY THREE! 

1. Peggy Eddleman - She's got some of the most entertaining posts about writing, and has such a unique perspective! Plus, she likes to be mean and throw in pictures of cookies all the time which really challenges my morning diet...

2. Ashley Nixon - I just love her to pieces! She's got such an awesome attitude about, well, everything and writes tons of good posts about writing and finding inspiration for stories (something we all need at times). Go say hello!

3. Julie Tuovi - Another awesome and energetic blogger I wish I could keep in my pocket. She's got a lot of great insight on writing and is a great resource for blogfests and contests.

4. Cherie - Now, I'm a new-ish follower of her, but she's fabulous! Very encouraging and supportive, and writes a tone about writing and is also a great resource for blogfests and contests.

(yes, i know i listed four. it's not in my nature to follow least not very well...)

Remember, it's never too late to join the blogfest...and please, go pay a visit to the bloggers above.

Happy Friday!


  1. Yay!! Thanks for the holla! You're a dear ( :

    Also, I'm SO guilty of wrath..."Stupid freakin computer! Ctrl, alt, delete! Ctrl, alt, delete!" Haha! What a funny pic... I might copy you at some point [gasp! Wait, now I have envy?!] I'll wait an acceptable period of time, of course, so no one knows I'm such a copy cat. Muahahahaha!

    P.s. Downloaded your book onto my smart phone, so now its more portable! I'm reading it like a crazy person now!! Yay! [This would be tje appropriate time to throw a Nook commercial in my face....] Haha!

  2. AWW!! You know what's awesome!? I follow all these blogs!! And they're wonderful.

    LOL! I feel like I am guilty of pride...I save every new thing. LOL.

  3. Jules - HA! You just made me laugh. Poor thing, guilty of two - TWO! I'm SO much better... (Uh, pride??)

    p.s. YAY!!!! Oh, I'm so happy! Let me know when you're done bc I'll have tons of questions!

    Ash - That IS wonderful, though I'm sorry I couldn't show you any new ones. :( Shoot, I save everything TOO!

    I don't know about Pride, but I'm going to keep on Ctrl-S-ing. Save, save, save again.

  6. HEE! I've got the "CTRL + S", but it's soooo not pride. It's total fear of "I've lost so much stuff before so I must hit this ALL THE TIME." LOL, my AutoSave is set to save every minute in case my computer freezes or anything. ;)

  7. Matt - No prob!...but thank YOU for putting this on! It's hard getting to know everyone, but things like this help tremendously.

    Peggy - My pleasure! Thanks for being so inspirational and writing posts I love to read...and congrats AGAIN on getting an agent! SO EXCITING!
