John Ward7,493This 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 13:44:1239603

John Ward7,006This is our current Writer's Discussion Circle. I post to this group Monday through Friday once a day.

Sarah Rios14,886WEDNESDAY IS FOR WRITERSI haven't done a circle share or any individual recommendations in a long time. 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 21:52:0211834119

I would really like for this cold to go away now. Via deity, scientific endeavor, whatever; I don't care. Just nuke it from orbit, please, however you like. It's the only way to be sure.

Even My Little Pony can be educational. Lizzy (7) and Abby (12) are playing a game called In a Pickle. Lizzy comes to me and asks what this card says, because it's not a word she's seen before.

"It says chaos," I explain, and I ask if she knows what that means.

"Duh, mom, it's what Discord causes in Equestria."

All righty then.

+Laston Kirkland and I are sitting here blinking at each other because our youngest is so... odd.

First Lizzy (7) disappears out the front door to our covered porch, then comes back in. "I'm trying to cool down," she explains earnestly, as she puts her coat on and goes back out. Then she comes back in and asks if she can "go out in the rain if I put my shoes on."

Now she's back in to tell us that she took her shoes off so she could feel the rain (okay; it's about 50F and she is still wearing her coat), and that she'll be back in again for her shower, "to get the rain off" when she's done.

And now Abby (12) has gone to join her. I think I'll stay in here where it's warm and dry, thanks, native Seattleite though I am.

I'm not really the religious sort but if any of you have good thoughts/prayers/whatever to send to my neighbors it'd be great. There are three fire engines and I think an aid car for a house fire in the cul-de-sac opposite ours. As I understand it no-one is hurt but how awful it must be for them!

+Laston Kirkland has a photo on his computer (with which we had one of those Holy Crap It's Going to Fail moments half hours tonight; it is six years old in its main parts after all) that we can't identify.

It shows a woman in the foreground, wearing what looks like a red snowsuit and in the background there is a cat person riding an equine creature. It looks like Michael Whelan in style, and although it is a similar pose and color of outfit, it is not Killashandra (see below).

Ideas?

"Mommy, is the reason you can't have any more babies that you don't make milk from your body anymore?"

"Um, no, more the other way around; I don't make milk because I can't make more babies."

"So, let me see if I understand this. Frollo is like Mother Gothel, only worse?" ~Abby, age 12

And, well, she's right. They both keep children captive in towers, but at least Mother Gothel is not guilty of actually telling Rapunzel that she's worthless until the child believes it. At least not in the Disney animated Canon. Frollo is, and in Disney he doesn't even have an excuse for it (like keeping himself alive, as Gothel does).

The parallel just never occurred to me before Abby said it.

The school librarian recommended the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle series for our voracious reader, Lizzy (she's in first grade but reads at a higher level (late third to early fourth), and the problem is that her attention span and her tolerance for spooky are still at a first grade level).

These stories are all about a friendly witch / fairy / local old lady who lives in an upside-down house and cures children of their bad habits. Lizzy - being Lizzy - asked me which story would be her bad habit. Um...

We settled on the "Answer-backer cure."

She seems to have trouble with the word "impudent." I wonder why....

Since +Laston Kirkland has gone to Double D Meats, we know that's all 100% natural, and the chicken is all from Safeway's Open Nature brand. Sure, the beans and stuff in the chili are canned, but it's still better than what we did this time last year.

Sometimes Non Sequitur Girl Lizzy just says stuff out of the blue that makes me wonder what goes on in her head when she's not verbalizing it.

We're watching a PBS Kids show called Fetch, and so far in this one episode she has sung a song about the water cycle, asked whether 11x10 is the same as 10x11, and wondered aloud about carnivores and herbivores. 

This is a 22-minute-long educational reality game show for kids.

+Laston Kirkland is teaching our children to be cynical. Miz Liz (7) saw an ad for LifeLock as I was surfing, and she explained it thus: "That's LifeLock. Don't buy it."

"Why," I asked.

"Because it has a commercial, and Daddy says that means if they need a commercial the thing isn't worth it."

That may need refining, honey, but it's a good working theory. Reminds me of Abby's assertion (at about the same age) that "these things (I think it was Bendaroos at the time) are pretty cool, but not as cool as they look on TV."

- asking Laston to pick up a few things I forgot to order or did not realize we were out of
- putting dinner on (spaghetti and meatballs - mostly homemade)
- getting lunch stuff ready for the rest of the week for the adults
- grilling pork chops and roasting squash
- emptying, reloading, and running the dishwasher
- cleaning off the kitchen counter
- cleaning out the pantry
- cleaning the laundry room (you have no idea... and see below for follow up)
- making sure I understand my new medical and Rx insurance... which involved a lot of phone calls
- paying bills

When the kids get home from school (around 4) I plan to:
- have them take the garbage out
- have them tidy on and around the dining room table
- give them a snack
- supervise homework
- teach Abby the correct way to deal with the litterbox (which is in the laundry room, and now you know why it took so much time and effort)
- have Lizzy empty the dishwasher
- finish making dinner and serve it
- maybe put up some curtains
- maybe fold some laundry
- pack lunches for tomorrow
- lay out clothes for tomorrow

I think I need a break now. ___
