My week is almost over... can we all say HALLALUJAH!!?!!
DH is feeling pretty dang good, to the point where he is making noises about playing hockey tonight (or at least skating in the warm-ups). I told him what I thought of that idea, but we all know how well he listens...
Weatherwise, we're going to have an amazing weekend. I imagine I won't be on the computer as much as I should and it might even mean the inaugural fishing trip on the boat.
On the writing / publishing front, one of Samhain's authors, J. L. Langley, was plagiarized recently. Thankfully, it was caught and reported and the other publisher removed the work immediately. While reading the comments on Teddy Pig's blog, I saw a publisher comment that they had to pull 30 books from an author because they discovered that at least one of the books was plagiarized, and so couldn't assume the others weren't as well.
What are people thinking? It's a bit mind-boggling, especially when they opt to copy a well known author (and J. L. Langley is well known in her genre). Reminds me of when Janet Dailey (who was formerly one of my favorite authors of all time, but who I will not touch with a 40 foot pole now) copied several works by Nora Roberts. NORA ROBERTS.
Frustrating to say the least. Especially since Janet Dailey actually got a new contract from Kensington AFTER all this happened.
:::shakes it off:::
For now, I shall enjoy my weekend, and hope that Monday comes quickly. I'm ready for a return to routine.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend -- who has big plans?
You Are Spring
You can't help but be influenced by the world around you. You are open to change and growth.
You are optimistic and trusting. You expect the best from people and usually get it.
You are autonomous and fulfilled. You know how to make yourself happy.
You are sweet and angelic. You try your best to never harm or hurt others in any way.
Um ... no. While I DO love spring, the description of me is so far off as to be laughable.
