First of all, in order to win a Kindle Fire, see details here. Molly's got all the links on her blog.
I don't know if I'm still in catch-up mode from the holidays, or just experiencing internet addiction, but it seems my computer time needs adjusting.
Do you remember the Daughtry song "Home"? The bridge of the song says, "Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it all; and some that you don't want..."
Since 1985, I've dreamed of being published. And it came true first in 2003, then again in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, and it looks as if I'll have four more released this year.
Since joining a local crit group, I've lamented the need for a laptop, and was finally rewarded one last year.
And since experiencing wifi, we purchased a router but it was several months until we figured out why it wasn't working properly. And now three people can be online at the same time, in different rooms of the house.
So why am I complaining? Maybe it's online overload. I find myself getting stressed if I realize it's 10am and I still haven't checked my twitter account. Or that it's noon and I'm still in my jammies, catching up on face book. The SU asked me the other day who were all these people I was telling him about, and suddenly I couldn't remember where I'd actually 'met' some of them. Was it on an author loop? Face book? Or through another Face Book friend? In other words, they are people he's never 'met'. And rolls his eyes. Just like when I 'forget' he's not as invested in my characters as I am.

Spouse: What are you thinking about?
Me: Wondering if Natalie's hair is shoulder-length or longer....and if she's got a perm.
