    New from California!

    Welcome to F-BOM and hello from Minnesota! I've shelved my WIP because I'm in a pretty intense internship right now, but in the future I would be interested in swapping beta reads. ~Lynn

    Camp Nanowrimo

    I've done it a few times and am currently participating this April. I prefer Camp to regular NaNoWriMo because it's more flexible. My goal for this month is 25,000 words and I can write whatever I feel like as long as I hit my personal word count for the day. The biggest downside is that participation is much lower. I tried hosting write-ins for Camp a few years ago, and it didn't pan out- 3 out of the 4 write-ins I hosted had no attendees except me. Regular NaNo is better for the community aspect. But even that is not perfect. I've had a handful of run-ins with snobs who tell me I'm cheating for not writing a novel or doing a lower word count, or try to pick apart my story when I'm just there to get it down on the page.

    Women's History Month!

    We're over halfway through Women's History Month- have you done anything to celebrate? I picked up a book about Amelia Earhart from my library; just opened it today.

    As we near Galentines Day...

    I have to work that evening, and didn't bother to take it off. My SO and I agreed not to give each other gifts this year, and instead of going out for dinner, we will make a nice breakfast together. That way we save money and we're not supporting the corporate side of the holiday.

    Fave beverage/book combo?

    For me, it's all about time of day. I think drinking thematically sounds fun, though! Morning: Coffee with milk Afternoon and Evening: Hot tea or soda water If I'm indulging: Hot chocolate or bubbly wine

    Food in Fiction

    If an author can make you interested in alien/non-existent food, they've won points in my book! I want that chemist's job! I feel like a lot of scifi moves towards energy-dense/utilitarian food that does not sound appetizing at all.

    Food in Fiction

    I would never have thought of this off the top of my head, but you are SO right about the Redwall series! Brian Jacques used to make me so hungry for scones with clotted cream, and I had never eaten them in my life. Not sure if this was in the book, but the chocolate cake in the Matilda movie still makes me salivate. Even if the end result is awful.

    Happy New Year!!! What are your resolutions??

    Strength train with goal of being able to lift 50 pounds comfortably and do at least one pull-up (never was able to do this in gym class.) Finish first revision of writing project. Reading goal I listed in other thread. Everyone needs more 'sisu'!

    Best TV Show of all time (and why?)

    I have a difficult time deciding which show is the best of all time (too many good shows for that!) That said, I was very, very impressed with Breaking Bad. For all the things it does right, I keep coming back to character development. The main protagonist becomes the antagonist and the lines of morality get so blurred it's hard to tell right from wrong anymore. The finale left me hollowed out and stunned for a few days. For the record, I think Walt is a wicked human being. I also love the revamped Doctor Who, although it has started to lose its charm for me (series seven went way downhill, yikes.) Hope it picks up again.

    We forgot apples! I love apple season, going to orchards, very inexpensive and delicious apples... McIntosh, Pink Lady, and Honeycrisp, oh my! I had a caramel apple with crushed peanuts yesterday, and it was divine

    Cool weather Cool weather Cool weather Did I say cool weather?! Trees changing colors Hot soup (especially squash and pumpkin!!!) Harvest moon (Spring's actually my favorite season, but I'll take fall over brain-frying summer heat) It's officially fall tomorrow, isn't it?
