Laugh Your A$$ Off! Literally.

Just met @andienns on Twitter and she recognized the opportunity to have the PlazaBUZZ broadcast an event that is taking place this Friday, 12/19:

Plaza Wellspring, 49th & Main in US Bank building
Call 816-931-6533 for more info.

I'd go check it out if I didn't already have a function that evening! So, if you go, then let the BUZZ know how it went!

I Missed Out on FREE Hugs... BLAST!

"Walking the Black Dog" blogged about some peeps giving out FREE HUGS on the Plaza last weekend and I missed it.

Ohhhhh RUE!

Who's Got the Best Fish Tacos?

wants to know... Fish Tacos at:
  • McCormicks?
  • Extra Virgin?
  • Grand Street?
What say you, BUZZers?

Personally, I'm VERY partial to a lovely little place with an ocean pier view that rests at the end of Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach (OB), San Diego called "South Beach." But, that's just me.

The Reason for Little BUZZ...

I've not been doing much other than writing my book. A few days ago, after basically locking myself in the condo for two weeks, I was chin-scruffy, the dishes were stacked up, the bathroom needed cleaning and the trash was overflowing. I took the weekend off from the book and fixed most of that stuff.

I didn't know what book I was writing until I wrote it. When I finally read it from cover to cover, I realized how to strengthen the themes and bring fluidity to it. I realized what story I wanted to tell.

I'm currently through 100 pages of the rewrite. Book is 250 pages and just short of 80,000 words. I anticipate that it will grow to be no larger than 85,000 words after this rewrite. At that time, those of you on the edit list will be getting an email from the main character, Soupy Heller.

Soupy created a Twitter account last week. He's not active yet, but if you'd like to add him, feel free to follow @soupyheller.
