working on books!

I have two books that are in production right now, one is a must finish, the second of the volumes of 2007 comics, it’s halfway done and should be finished any day now, should. Trouble is, years ago I wrote a short novel, really a novella, oh, who am I kidding, a novelette. It needed some mad, practically epic, editing, which I started doing, because that’s where my head wanted to be, that part was fun. I want to add a bit more to it, there’s a couple of holes in the plot that I want to work out, and I tossed around the idea of turning the whole shebang into a graphic novel. That would be really cool, I think, probably. But fifty pages of graphic novel, can I do it? Do I have the stamina? The capabilities? Should I just throw it into a book form and call it a day? I’m trying to decide and am carrying the manuscript around with me, pulling it out and reading it occasionally, I must make up my mind, soon. And in the meantime, shouldn’t I be finishing the second volume of 2007 comics, mustn’t I?

Here’s the good news, as members, when that Novella/graphic novel/novelette is done, you’ll get to read it first, promise. As soon as it heads to the printers, I’ll send you a download button, ’cause you’re the best, I adore you, and appreciate you signing up.

This comic is from 2010…enjoy!

A full 39 weeks

This came from a news article a friend sent me (thanks Julia!) here: New Baby Delivery Strategies Help to Cut Health Costs I foundthe article maddening on a few different levels, I think about 4 more comics are coming! …

This comic is related to this comic: that was the past, right?


Mama: Here it is…Indubitable, “39-weeks!” Crammed flippantly into the fourth paragraph in an article on health costs. “39-weeks!” It’s something we knew, or suspected…”full!” but to see it spelled out. tsk tsk. “births induced after a full 39-week pregnancy to births induced one to two weeks early…”
Get that?
“a full 39-week pregnancy”
Look it up: first births average 41 weeks, 1 day. That’s a 15 day discrepency!
Know what that means?
If you birth in a hospital and you don’t get induced it’s a freaking miracle.
