|John Ward||7,493||This is my circle for Beta Readers. This circle consists of people who have volunteered to read, evaluate, and critique stories written by other people. The only qualification to be in this group is that you have to be willing to read the work of one of the other members.The way the process works is that once you join, you need to add the circle. After you have added the circle, you can send messages to the members of the group letting them know when you have a story that you'd like to have someone review. Briefly share some details about your story: genre, word count, and synopsis. Then, one of the other members will reply letting you know that they're interested. After that you can work out the best way for you to share the story with one another... and that's it.If you're interested in joining the circle, simply leave a comment here. I'm happy to add you.||2012-11-30 13:44:12||39||6||0||3||CC G+|

I figured it was about time to fix both of those :)This is my Overlords circle (named for the way they blithely create and destroy fictional worlds). They post often about writing, or are very well known for their writing prowess. This isn't a complete list as I still have about 200 more people to sort in various temporary circles, but it's a good start. Pick through it at your leisure!As far as individual recommendations, you can't go wrong with +John Ward and +Evo Terra. Both gentlemen post often about writing and publishing. If you're looking for hangouts, myself, +Bliss Morgan, and +Rebecca Blain host writing hangouts fairly often (I know I'm forgetting other people that start these during the day... please jump in and remind me so I can edit to include you, because my memory is terrible).There are no writing Pages in this circle, just writers, so here is the full list of relevant Pages I also have circled:+Vaginal Fantasy (the once a month book review by +Felicia Day and friends)+Literary+ +Teenage Love Zombies (technically a comic, but hey, still writing involved)+Fiction Improbable +Curiosity Quills Press +SPOT +Sexy Briefs +42wd Publishing LLC +Chaotic Motion Productions +||2012-08-22 21:52:02||118||34||1||19||CC G+|

I hadn't realized how much Abby and her friends have grown up in the last year or two (they're in fifth grade), until I started listening to the major angst over the littlest crap with two of Abby's friends here in the neighborhood (both in third grade).
They were ready to dissolve a four year friendship over who gets to contribute kool-aid and who contributes fruit to the stand they've all set up in my front yard. Much accusation of bossiness and a lot of kitchen sinking.
I told them I could always shut down the stand if they can't work together, and Abby went into peacemaker mode, telling them about these two friends she had in third grade who would a) shout and b) kick.
Very interesting conversation on my front porch.

If anyone can turn me into Arnold Rimmer, it's my daughter Abby. Because she's doing it again.
She's humming and clicking and being quiet.

In case you didn't already suspect because of the dozens of books in the Magic Treehouse series, Jack and Annie do make it out of Pompeii alive.
Lizzy's a good reader but occasionally needs assistance with vocabulary. And reassuring snuggles.

And here I didn't like this class until I had this epiphany... I'm good at this topic.

Why yes, I do resemble at least a couple of these. But my kids are awesome.

Just got a note in a plastic envelope on my front walk:
PARENTS: Your kids should not be out screaming and yelling after 10:00 PM at Night!!! Some of Us try to sleep around that time, and can't because YOUR KIDS are screaming!!!
Um, actually, no, my kids are in no later than eight, Mr. Cranky-ass Neighbor, so STFU.
Dollars to donuts this is the same guy who has accused me of driving too fast in the neighborhood and who "caught" our kids not breaking down boxes properly at the Dumpster (you would have thought this was a sin against God from his reaction). The one who takes it upon himself to police the neighborhood even though (gasp!) he's just a resident like anyone else.

Innocent Blue Eyes
Silly Walk (she bounces)
Cannot Tell a Joke
Everything's Better with Spinning
Everything's Better with Sparkles
Cloud Cuckoolander (but only in her tendency to spout non-sequiturs)
Abby and Leanna'll take more time

Cosmos is lovely, the new one with Neil deGrasse Tyson, and I have been enjoying it.
But today, Cosmos meets etymology and I am completely hooked.
Disaster = Bad Star in Greek, and it comes from the ancient Greek word for comet. Because in almost all ancient civilizations, comets were harbingers of doom.

I said it once before - it's a good party when you need your asthma inhaler just for laughing so hard.
Between +Carrie Miller, +Jason Miller, +Dorri Kay, +Andrea Valenti #cardsagainsthumanity , five little girls (four of whom slept here), wall decals in Lizzy's room, #DisneyJunior for the little one, and #OvenSmores, I'm not sure when I've had more fun recently.
Now, on to scrambling eggs for three of the four, sharing my stash of hard boiled eggs with one of them, and gulping down coffee!

Got a text from my mom:
Seriously? A direct quote from Lizzy (watching the lorax):
"Is this a stereotype or a trope...the evil mayor"?
that's my girl
BTW, it's a trope... The Corrupt Government Official

Is there anything nicer than the sound of one's children shrieking with glee as they toss a Frisbee around with the neighbor kids?
Outside the house, mind you, where we can see them and hear them but they aren't all up in our faces?

Non Sequitur Girl strikes again.
We're watching Sofia the First and the flying horses must have reminded her of an old proverb, but we got this gem today:
"Mom, if I was a worm I think I'd sleep all day."

The problem with sibling snarking isn't the hurt feelings. It isn't their mom (hi!) nobly repressing the desire to slap them both silly.
No, the problem with sibling snarking is that it distracts them both while they are doing their after-dinner chores (Lizzy clears the table and Abby empties the dishwasher) and then things like a full wooden salt shaker in the sink full of soapy water happen.

Abby really likes the show Treehouse Masters - it's part of the Surprisingly Human lineup on Animal Planet. We know these guys are nearby; we are in the suburbs north of Seattle, and they are between the east suburbs and the mountains. But usually the show takes place in Seattle proper or in another area entirely; these guys build treehouses all over the country.
But the episode we're watching right now (we're mainlining old episodes) has the treehouse less than a mile from our house.

She said, "Oh, the February Depression Special, then?"

I like a capella music in any case, but the Ponytones are so dang cute.
We're on the girls' third watching of the Filli Vanilli episode and I'm enjoying it rather more than any 45yo women needs to...

Kindergarten physics perception:
"Mommy, did you know that when you move something back and forth really fast it looks like there's a thousand of them?"
Mind you, this is all said in the six-year-old dialect knows as Toothless Lisp.

Game night with +Jason Miller and +Carrie Miller and their kids was a blast. We played Defenders of the Realm (and won!) and Love Letters.
Kids watched TV and played Apples to Apples Jr and "imagination games".
Carrie brought fruit and chocolate fondue and YUM.
Best quote of the night (aside from all the Spamalot / Holy Grail quoting) was probably this lovely bit from the kids:
Leanna: Jenn, can I make breakfast in the morning?
Me: Not tomorrow, no.
Abby: Can I help her?
Me: <blink blink>

6yo Lizzy wins the internet with this remark regarding the Killer Rabbit and Black Knight toys I got yesterday at Spamalot:
"They're a lot more Doctor Who than Hello Kitty."

I haven't actually seen a preschool show with such periphery demographic appeal since My Little Pony and The Backyardigans.
Doc McStuffins is almost alarmingly charming.

Abby (texting with a friend about how dumb her little sister's TV shows are): Mom, how do you spell Mickey?
Both adults: M-O-U-S-Eeeeee
Abby and Lizzy both stared at us like we grew additional heads.

I am so not a sports fan that I don't even have a circle about sports. But I am a Seattleite, and as such I feel a certain proprietary pride, especially tonight.
To that end, I bring you Lizzy's Seahawk Pride

So Abby asked me if she can ride her bike to Grandma's (about four blocks) and sell Girl Scout Cookies to Grandma. I told her she could walk up there but I don't want her to ride her bike alone. She agreed and set off.
Then she comes back. "Um... can I skip to Grandma's house?"

For Christmas, Abby and Lizzy made placemats for the whole family. Laston's is all Texas (they didn't have good "computer stickers"), mine has music notes, Leanna's has wild animals, Abby's has haunted house things, and Lizzy's has fish and sea life.
We've been using them since we got our dining chairs put together (thanks, +Carrie Miller!) and Lizzy brought hers over to me just now, to explain the family groupings of fish. "See, this is a family with a mommy and a daddy and a baby, and this one is..." like that. Then she says, in a sorrowful tone, "And this fish is single, because there just aren't enough fish on the sticker pad."
I'm torn. Do I crack up laughing? Or do I explain that not every fish needs another fish to be happy. I sort of did both.
