The Good: I went to bootcamp yesterday and totally got my ass kicked. Go me!
The Bad: I came home to find that Ken had purchased 4 boxes of Girl Scout cookies. Ouch.
The Ugly: 48 hours later only 3 boxes are left. You do the math.
The Good: I cleaned out my closet today and I feel like a whole new person. I can actually see my clothes now. It's fabulous.
The Bad: I gave away 4 HUGE bags of clothes to Goodwill. I can't even stand to think about how much money I wasted on those clothes, some of the stuff still had tags on it! But hey, I'm sure there are people out there that will get good use out of the stuff.
The (F)ugly: I still can't give away my sort-of-see-through, snake skin patterned Kenneth Cole shirt. I haven't worn it since 2003, but it's just nice to know it's there just in case snake skin comes back in style or we're invited to a party where you have to dress like a cave person. Yeah, it's fugly.
The Good: Laura and I are converting our random plot notes into an actual synopsis for Book 2 and it's going to be awesome (sorry, humility isn't one of my strong suits).
The Bad: We still need to work out all of the revisions on Book 1 which is going to require a little bit of research on our end.
The Ugly: I got the book I need to read for research from Amazon today, but it arrived with THE SEASON and THE HUNGER GAMES, two books I've been dying to read. What are the chances that I'll have the willpower to stay focused on the research? Umm...slim to none. Laura is going to disown me.
The Good: We think we might have figured out the perfect title for Book 1! Hoorah!
The Bad: We e-mailed the agent about it, but haven't heard back yet. So she's either a) horrified that she has signed two authors who can't think of a decent title to save their lives and working with a bunch of scary lawyers to annul our representation agreement or b) busy. TBD.
The Ugly: We're thinking it might be fun to keep you guys in suspense for a while about the title itself. After all, some fancy schmancy published author might happen by our awesome blog and steal it, right? What you don't think that sounds likely? Well, the truth is that we're starting to learn that titles are a little bit like naming your baby. Sometimes it's best to keep it a surprise so you don't have a whole bunch of judgy people looking at you and saying, "Calliope? Seriously? Are you sure? I once knew a Calliope who was a stripper..."
Ok, your turn. Good, bad, ugly - we want to hear it all in the comments!
