Whew, what a few weeks it has been.  I went on a business trip to North Carolina for the day job last week.  That was a lot of fun but a lot of work.  I was working extra hours at that office nearly every day plus 2 days of travel.  Now I’m back and the first thing out of everyone at the office’s mouths was “Hey, welcome back…can you work overtime?”  Cue sigh here.  It’s nice to be considered so valuable around here but really, I’d just barely walked in the door!

I’m working hard on my rewrite of Schooling of  a Monster.  I have heard rumors that a certain publisher is accepting un-agented manuscripts right now that are right up my alley as far as genre goes.  I really want to get this done so that I can try that and see how it goes.  I look at it this way, what’s the worst thing that could happen?  They tell me no?  Heard it all before and the word no does not intimidate me. 

I know I promised links for Helium articles far too long ago and haven’t had time since.  So I shall do so now!

What are some of the more common myths concerning domestic violence?  Do you think you know?  Find out here!

Have you ever wanted to increase your vocabulary in just seconds per day?  Now you can, read it with me to figure out how.

If you will need surgery anytime soon, this  article will be of particular interest to you, it discusses the side effects associated with general anesthesia.

Lupus is a disease that affects thousands worldwide every day.  But what causes this auto-immune disease?  I explore that in this article.

Imagine for a moment that you’re camping with your family, you hear a noise from the trees and turn to find a cougar looking right at you!  What do you do?  Let’s all find out together here.

Perhaps you’ve heard someone compared to a wolverine because they seem to devour anything edible within their grasp.  It’s a rather common phrase, but how did this assocation come about?  Are wolverines really that greedy?  Now you can know by reading here.

Sea cucumbers, it’s a strange name for an equally strange creature.  Find out just how strange in this article.

I have a bunch more that I’ve done in the last few weeks, but for now I think that will suffice.  I don’t want to overwhelm anyone’s brain too much.  Have a wonderful hump day and leave me a comment if you feel so inclined.  I love knowing you guys are out there!

Business Trips

Like I promised, I am here way sooner than my usual gap between posts.  It’s been a busy week but I wrote a bit on Helium and wanted to keep everyone updated.  The day job has been exhausting and really limited the amount of writing I can do because I’m just do tired.  But on the plus side they are sending me to North Carolina for a business trip to train our team out there the week of the 12th.  That is going to be really fun, I have never been on a business trip before.  I am a bit nervous but mostly excited.

I’m also considering writing more fan fiction, probably for Supernatural.  I remember that I started a story on a Fan Fiction website back during the summer break between seasons 4 and 5 but never got around to finishing it.  And now after the finale of season 6 my mind is racing with all the possible theories and possibilities for season 7.  I won’t share my ideas here in full, but let’s just say I think I figured out who God is and it’s not Prophet Chuck.  I might just write that new fan fiction after all because I just love this idea I thought of.

I do have a few new articles on Helium but I cannot post links yet.  The purchase deadline isn’t passed yet so they are not available on the website yet.  I’ll make another post this weekend when the links are available.

Happy Friday!
