Why I Don't Do the Resolution Thing

Happy New Year's Adam.

Around my place, that's what we call the day before any holiday that ends with the word 'eve,' so there you go. Since tomorrow is New Year's Eve, today is New Year's Adam. Pretty sure my girlies got that from their fairy godmother, the lovely and talented Erinannie. I kind of love how she's rubbed off on them even from the other side of the country.

So...resolutions.

I don't make them.

I used to. I had high ideas and tons of motivation, and every year I was going to make my life better, lose enough weight to land on the cover of some magazine (hey, I'd settle for the cover of Mad Magazine--I'm not picky! Having a magazine cover is what counted, and I think we can all admit I won't be on anyone's swimsuit edition.) You know how it goes. We all make those goals, forget them, and move on with life by Martin Luther King Day.

I have long term goals and short term goals. I make them all the time. I just need to get better about focusing on the short term and making more measurable progress toward the long term. Big&hairy and I have plenty of long term goals that we're working toward together, but when the end goal is so far ahead sometimes it's hard to realize the little bit we're doing today will mean something in ten years. Sometimes I wonder what I'd do without him. He's seriously the greatest guy ever in the history of guys. He works his tail off for his girls (all three of us!) and I absolutely adore him.

So...do you make any resolutions? And more importantly, do you accomplish them?

Off the Record, Question 1

Fake News at Its Finest

Life has a way of putting me in my place. I had grand intentions to post weekly, and three months later....

So I think it's great that people are talking about fake news these days, because fake news is at the heart of Off the Record. I have a sleezeball paparazzo named Derrick Fuchs (it looks like a swear word, but it's pronounced 'fooks,' a purposeful play on words to immediately show what a douche nozzle he is) in the novel. He writes his articles based on the latest gossip without really caring who he hurts or how much of it is made up. I haven't decided yet if the reader gets to meet him, but the excerpt today is the first article we see from him. Enjoy!


Off the Record, Question 1 Part 2

If you haven't noticed, the format for Off the Record isn't in regular chapters. Main character Devi Madrigal is looking back in an interview for Rocker Chic mag, something I made up because every sleezeball papparazzo antagonist needs a place to work, right? So instead of chapters, you'll see questions and articles about her. It's a fun format to write in.😍

When we last hung out with The Streakers, they were trying to figure out how to make the finale of a live reality show after their lead singer Raina Sky ditched them that morning. They heard Devi singing after her shift at the coffee shop and want to sneak her in to sing for them. Will Devi tell them they're crazy? Can they sneak her in to a studio with tight security? Will this girl with a guitar and a dream steal the chance she's been trying for three years to reach?
