But what a hoot! Misty is Misty Simon and she just got a brand new tattoo - of the cover art from her latest book! Misty writes the "Poison Ivy" series - mysteries with a wry sense of humor. Her heroine is not a perfect miss - her thighs rub together, her arms jiggle and she makes mistakes. In other words, she's human. But she gets things figured out. I absolutely adore her. Anyway, I got to see the new tattoo in person yesterday. It looks really neat! I admire her courage. We all got to talking about tattoos - not something I could ever bring myself to do - but it is interesting. Of the five of us, three have tattoos, one is thinking, and me. The artwork is beautiful and I admire them for having the nerve to do it. But I'll stick to looking at it. :)
Anyway, if you get a chance, check out Vicki and Misty's blogs about getting the tattoo and other things.
In the meantime, I continue to work on edits of my own stuff - I want to submit at least one this coming week - if I can get all the formatting done. I swear, taking care of the "rules" for submission to this publisher is taking more time than the actual writing did. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thought for the day: "The really great writers are people like Emily Brontë who sit in a room and write out of their limited experience and unlimited imagination." - James A. Michener
