That's a lot of time I could/should have been reading and writing, but what can I do? I'm a boob-tube baby.

You have no life. :)

Could you imagine if we listed (or could remember) all the films we had ever watched - that list would be huge.

Gabriel said...

There were a lot that I could've mentioned that weren't on the list. And my movie consumption has dropped since the little ones have come along.

I'm sure the list would be staggering.

I haven't gone item by item and done the math yet, but I'd say it's a safe bet that I have no life twice over according to this list. Oh well. Thank God I have you guys to talk to. :p

Congratulations on your Second edition! (...er, I mean ADDition).

P.S. Gabriel, I have two questions for you.

1) Where in your blog can I learn more about your novel, and what it's about? I'm really excited to find somebody at a similar stage with their book (I'm about a year away from shopping mine, I hope).

2) I've linked to your blog. Perhaps you'll consider linking to mine? (I'd have sent you an e-mail but I can't find it here). Happy new year!

Jim,

I haven't really said much about my novel here on the blog. Call me paranoid, but I'm a bit uncomfortable talking about it until I find an agent. I know this is silly. Maybe I'll post the pitch that I have in my query letter to give you an idea.

I have you listed on my "blogs that I follow" link, but I haven't figured out how to add that to my main page. I am the most technically UNsavy writer you will meet, so I will try to get you added to the links. I usually make the wife handle the computer side of my life.
