The Oddest Places

I'm sitting in the parking lot at Dairy Queen. They have free
wi-fi and I have a baby boy who woke up an hour before his usual nap time is over. And I have a one-page synopsis to finish for this contest. One pagers are horrible. All synopsis are bad but one pagers are particularly so because you have to reduce your 100,000 word baby down to five paragraphs. And have a hook. And have a theme. So, Dairy Queen. Normally I wouldn't go to such extremes but let me tell you, when the kid doesn't get enough sleep he goes into hyper-mode and since he has recently discovered the joys of the TV, my bookcases, and well, climbing me, hyper-mode is to be avoided at all costs. 

In other news, Happily Forever After is offering a great contest ( Barbara always has good ones) and I encourage you to visit. Free books are, after all, the best things ever. 

And in my mad search to find the answer to one pagers, I found this blog which is pretty awesome. Pirates. Need I say more?

Now, it's time to get back to that synopsis before the kid awakes. And probably get some ice cream.
