I promised I would tell you the cool advice Robin gave me about plotting, so here it is.
She tries to end each chapter on either an emotional high (+), an emotional low (-), or a cliffhanger (*).
She makes sure she alternates these feelings to always keep her reader on their toes and actually marks them at the end of each chapter with the symbols above.
If she sees too many (-)s, she inserts a (*) or a (+).
COOl, huh? Try it!
I got BRACES yesterday! And, believe it or not, I asked for them for my 40th birthday (coming very soon). I just had no idea how painful they would be! I am in too much agony to really do a bunch of blogging, so I thought I'd leave you with some before and after pictures. These were taken before the insides of my cheeks were ravaged by spiky metal thumbtacks. Not to worry, I've gobbed enough wax inside my mouth to form candles, and I've purchased the mac daddy food processor and all kinds of special toothbrushes too. I plan on being the poster child for perfect brace care. Why? Cuz that's just how you roll when you're 39 and choose to get these things.
Does anyone remember their braces?
Oh. Remind me next time to powder my chin before photos. That sucker is beaming. Ick.
