Due to the time change and not feeling so hot last night, I'm groggy this morning so this will be short and sweet.
First of all, and this has nothing to do with writing, but my daughter called last night to tell me she's engaged!!! She lives in Texas and she and her fiance were in San Francisco for a long weekend vacation - and he popped the question there. So congratulations to her and him. :) Yay!
And huge thanks to my crit partners. Thanks to their comments, I won't have to trash the first seventy pages of my current WIP. They pointed out areas where I was having trouble and I worked on it last night. It flows much better now and I like the way it's coming together. Guess it wasn't as bad as I thought after all.
So today is finish the book review - not going to be a great one. I'm not liking this book a lot. It's terribly boring. I'll give you the particulars once the review is posted: www.wantzuponatime.com

Tips and Teasers: A "Tom Swiftie" is a pun-like adverbial tag and should be eliminated unless being used for special effects. For this exercise, write a dialog scene using as many T.S.'s as possible. Example: "We need a new lightbulb," he said darkly.
Thought for the day: "Desire is creation, is the magical element in that process. If there were an instrument by which to measure desire, one could foretell achievement." - Willa Cather
