Donating blood

Okay, so while I’m busy working on Slayers, my son is making videos. This one made me laugh so I had to share it. (Almost on page 500, without any chapter breaks, by the way. Which means once I put in chapter breaks it’ll be over 525)

    I LOVED it. You both are very quick witted. Well, Janette, I am not sure about your quickness since I only read it…
    BUT get the two of you together and it would be like the Gilmore Girls. Almost. I love how they talk so fast and make me laugh. Kinda like giving blood.
    Thanks for sharing!!

      I’ll have to watch the Gilmore Girls. Sometimes having teens to joke around with is the funnest thing ever, but most of the time I’m telling them to do their chores and they just scowl at me. I wonder how the Gilmore mom gets her kids to do jobs . . .

    Love it. I may or may not have followed it up with 30 min of watching his other stuff.

      Out of curiosity, do you follow Gail Carson Levine’s blog?
      Also, I’m with you. James is hilarious. 🙂

      I had expected to be done by now. But then, I’d envisioned the book being between 300-400 pages, not close to 600. So the first draft should be done by the end of the year but the final book won’t. However if you want to be put on my Beta readers list, send me an email. Beta Readers will read the first draft and give me feedback of things they liked, didn’t like, didn’t understand, etc. (No grammar required.)

    Excellent video! You must be proud of him.

    I came here on a circuitous route from Kindle Scout. I’m nominating books I think are really well written, and yours is one – I hope KS is sensible and chooses it :o)
