Diverse deviants! We Need Diverse Books is holding a short story contest, which you should all check out (they define "diversity" in the guidelines):…
For those of you who might have wondered if I was ever going to revise "Bloodlines" (formerly known as "Drive"): Just got most of my revision notes together, and I'm excited to make changes. :D

Finally. For the two-and-change months since I've let it sit, I've mostly wanted to set it on fire. :|
The dA app only working on iOS 8 reminds me even more acutely that I need a new phone. :grump:
When you're being introduced to someone in DC, people's first instinct here is to ask, "What do you do?" as in, what do you do for a living? And then networking commences. :no: How do people introduce themselves/strike up conversations where you're from (and where are you from)?
I've been reading about this new book that has some interactive features (you can go to websites built just for the book in its digital edition, like one for the company the protagonist works at), but also has some outside sponsorship. The author partnered with Sweet'N'Low to help fund the book in exchange for some positive mentions of the brand by the book's characters. What are your thoughts about this?

Publishing Resources!

My name is Kate, and I'm a writer.

I'm a native New Yorker, but I moved to Washington, DC and got a BA in English and Creative Writing from The George Washington University in 2013. I now live and work full-time in Arlington, VA.

I have a lot of varied experience in being published and working in publishing, so if you have any questions about how to get published or how to work in the industry, feel free to send me a note!

This happened on Tuesday! Pardon my scaly winter hands.

Ring by SadisticIceCream

Not entirely unexpected because two weekends before, my boyfriend asked me to look up something in his email while he was driving, and completely forgot his inbox was full of emails from the ring company. :rofl: Still though, he asked in the same spot where he first asked me out four and a half years ago, so it was sweet. We're planning on a long engagement, so if I had a dollar for every time I made this face :stare: at people who asked me if we've set a date yet, we could pay for a giant goddamn wedding. I would also like to add that this ring is made of recycled gold and lab-created diamonds -- yay for being ecologically and socially responsible! :#1:

I'm also headed to Boulder tomorrow, and then on to California on Sunday. I probably won't be around much while I'm on vacation, but I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season! :love:

Take good care of you and yours, and all the very best!

I keep looking at all these medical conferences that are happening in America and I must admit I keep secretly hoping I'll get sent one close to where you live. :) 

Or really, any conference in the states. :P I'll somehow make a holiday out of it and come visit you!

So you've probably seen this multiple times before, but I thought of you when it gave me a good laugh. :aww:…

We all know you're wonderful, but in case you've forgotten for a moment, here's a reminder.

To see what nice thing you've been accused of doing (and who else is being recognized), find the widget by the same name on my profile page!

Helpful hint:  It's near the bottom, above my webcam image!

Have a wonderful rest of your day!
