What In The Word....

I have been trying to come up with some catchy titles for my blog posts recently. Half the time I never know what to title the silly things, but whatever works, right?

Before we get too involved, I want to remind you all that my blog tour is still ongoing and today the stop is over at my sister-in-law's blog. So, find Cheri here.

Okay, that's out of the way now.

So I woke up Monday morning and, before my Dr.'s appointment, logged on to check my email. Now, I have Facebook and I only get notifications when someone tags me in a post or pic. Because pics of me are super rare, I do not want to be connected in any way shape or form to some obscenity I had nothing to do with.

I had been tagged like, half a dozen times by my author buddies in Word Weavers. What the heck???

It was a silly thing of posting seven lines of something you are currently working on. Okay, cool I can do that. But I had to wait 'til later, of course.

I figured I would share that here as well, simply because I know lots of you don't do Facebook.

So here you go:

“Ah … yes,” the young man croaked. He lifted his fist to his mouth, cleared his throat and tried again. “It seems to be that Lady Kayta has suffered detrimental consequences and her memory has been completely lost with no chance of regaining it.”
“What?” Rose dropped his arms to his side, taking a step towards Trybis, who flinched instinctively. Rose fought the urge to shout. “But we haven't done anything yet!”
“You misunderstand our young Trybis,” Talroth held up a hand, smiling ever so slightly. Rose did not find anything amusing and frowned. “What he means to say is, you are all about to make a hasty decision due to the fact that none of you are able to decide the best course of action at this moment in time."

Anyway, that's all I have for today. I tried cleaning my laptop keyboard over the weekend and totally lost all function of most of my keys. The cleaning was inspired by junk getting under my keys and rendering them halfway useless as it was, but I just enhanced the issue. So I had to go borrow a regular USB keyboard. But then I slipped down the bottom step on my way into my kitchen and tweaked the whole left side of my body and was down for the count. Needless to say, I didn't feel like sitting at my desk for most of the weekend and didn't get any extra work done.

I shall remedy that this evening. So, until then, have a great week! Don't forget to stop by Cheri's blog and all that fun stuff.

How was your weekend? Do you post silly stuff like that on Facebook? Do you Twitter?

That's why I'm glad I'm not on Facebook...

I got tagged with that a couple of times; I didn't do it. I have two Facebook pages: one for friends and family, and then an author page. The two are very separate.

I don't tweet, and rarely post to FB. But I do think silly is fun sometimes. Who wants to be too serious all the time :)

Hope you get well soon.

I deactivated my Facebook (both my personal one and my 'bloggy' account). I wasn't getting anything out of it so I figured it needed to be culled.

Agree with Alex. Facebook can be nothing but trouble.
