The Dumbest Thing I've Ever Tweeted

So, you know how they say the Internet is forever? You need to watch what you say. But there's also that handy, dandy delete button. I should have used it :-)

In case you don't follow me on Twitter ( and I'm not sure there are many REAL people that do), here's basically what I said...I have an idea for a new Master's of the Universe movie. Huh?

Here's my explanation...a few weeks ago, we took a mini vacation that included a trip to Target. I picked up a DVD of the old tv show for my son and we watched a couple episodes that night in the hotel.  Does anybody remember the original movie? Yeah, me neither. But I read somewhere there was a remake in the works.

Somewhere along the way, my twisted little brain cooked up an idea that was kind of like fan fiction. and even more embarrassing than that? I actually wrote a couple pages of it. I don't know if you can even call irfan fiction because the only things I know about the story are what I got from those few episodes I watched. But it's kind of a good idea. Too bad I don't write sci- fi. But I could give it a go, couldn't I?

For the record, my story is about as far from the campy cartoon as you can get. I modernized it. And Channing Tatum is Prince Adam/He-Man (not original at all but it works).

So, fellow writers, do you ever get consumed by totally off the wall ideas? I know I do!

Where I'm At

I'm right here, silly.

Yeah, I know. Humor is not my strong point. But anyway...

Last night, I finished a round of edits on the novel I wrote for NaNoWriMo. I'm happier with it than I was before, but it still needs work. I think this is the point where I find someone to read it. Why is that so hard to do? I joined the blueboards because that's what everyone said to do. But it's been the same every time I've seen a call for crit partners. People say they want one, but now isn't the right time. So why did you say you wanted one now? It's frustrating. Or am I that undesirable? ::sobs::

And I've ::gulp:: sent out a few queries. Not too many yet. Testing the waters, I guess. Talk about scary. And nerve wracking. And a bunch of other words that mean the same thing (I misplaced my thesaurus). But at least now I can say I've done it. The journey begins...
