The Best Laid Plans

This sounds like a post about planning to get laid and then having it backfire, doesn’t it?  Or, is that just my perverted take on it?  Well, it’s not.  If I plan to get laid, I get laid, dammit.

Last month, I decided to whip out 20,000 words for a sub call about witches for Total-E-bound. They are planning their Halloween releases, and it sounded right up my alley.  Of course, in true Kimber fashion, I over-shot on my plot.  I sent my psuedo-novella to Lefty—-my wing-woman, my sounding board, my editor, and BFF—-who, in true Lefty fashion, asked me where the hell the rest of my story was and made fun off my bitchy heroine and typos.

Well, the upper word limit was 20K and that’s where I stopped.  There was no “rest of.”  But Lefty confirmed my fears.  I knew while I was writing it that I had a ton going on and the page-space was running out under my fingers.  I rushed some things and left way too many questions unanswered.  So, “Spelling Trouble” goes back to the drawing board.  I have a nice first 1/3 of a novel.  😛

Thankfully, Lefty is not only brutally honest, she’s also a wicked-awesome-plot-bunny-wrassler-extraordinaire.  If the science ever permits it, I’d like to have her head sewn on my shoulders so we can combine our evil forces and take over the world.

Lefty, the hubs and I saw a commercial for “I Killed My BFF” last night, and I knew in a heartbeat that you are the one I would kill if I was on that show.  I love you, man!

I’ll Show You My Progress Bars if You Show Me Yours

This is me whippin’ ’em out!

My friend, Kate Lowell, was sweet enough to give me step-by-step instructions on these–not once, but twice.  She is a love and I am an idiot.

And now I’ve got them, all shiny and new (and in need of frequent updating).  I even had to cross multiply to figure out my own percentages.  A little math is good for my old left brain once in a while, since that side gets a bit dusty.  The code is probably supposed to figure it out for you, but I couldn’t figure that out.  For once it was easier to do math [waves idiot sign].  I also happened to find a calculator, so that firmed up my decision to DIY.

Well, if you use WordPress and are suffering from progress bar envy (I know, mine are so big, aren’t they?), I’ll link you to my penis pump, I mean progress bar supplier.  You, too, can have big, sexy progress bars in just a matter of minutes.

Just remember, don’t put too many on your site or you’ll go blind.
