She's Not Paying Attention

She's still at the office, waiting for instructions or something, even though it's after hours and she ought to be in traffic on her way back here. But tonight is Tuesday and she has a dancing class, if you can believe that, so I'm going to just post all kinds of information and see what I can get away with. How does that sound to all you visitors? See, I fully believe an author's journal should be about the author's life, don't you think? She's doing all these interviews during her Choices Meant for Gods Online Book Tour in which she's all staid and prim and proper and "oh, I'm this professional fantasy author with a professional fantasy novel." I'll agree with her on that point, but you all don't get to see the other side of Sandy Lender when she's putting on that front. She's not all Old English themes and Anglo-Saxon broad-swords and "good literature is meant to educate and entertain." By the gods, she gave that answer for an interview for later in the week and I thought I was going to come unglued. Good literature is meant to educate and entertain? That's straight out of one of her English classes in college, you know. She told me so.

So here's something you never would have learned about my fantasy author without me: She takes a belly dancing class on Tuesday nights where she's learning how to wiggle around like some middle eastern woman in veils and whatever. It's lunacy. First of all, she doesn't have time for this, no matter what she says about "taking time for oneself." Second, if she's going to do this...well...I think she should teach Amanda. I mean...every woman should have these moves in her arsenal. I just have to keep Henry from learning of it or he'll be drooling all over the place. He's a difficult one to keep in check sometimes. Speaking of...I should see how his character interviews are coming along.

Thank you all for indulging me this evening. It's rather lonely here when my author is off at work.
