That quote is one of my own. I thought it added a nice ring to the day. It has been a long week. I prefer not going into details, but let’s just say my entire life went to hell and still has not fully come back. And unfortunately all this drama and chaos has caused my writing to come to a screeching halt. But hopefully things are settling down slightly now, they are by no means solved, but I can get back to doing something besides trying not to have a nervous breakdown.
Oh, I did go to tour a winery this weekend. That was enormous fun. I am ashamed to admit that while I live a mere 10 miles from Napa, California, I have never been to a winery. This one is called Castillo Di Amorosa. Or in english, the Castle of Love. It is modeled after a 14th-15th century castle. It was truly amazing, I was stunned by the whole place. They had a replica dungeon, complete with authentic implements of torture. And you all know my slightly twisted side loved that. I even got a fantastic story idea while touring the place. They looked at me like I was insane when I demanded a napkin so I could write it down and not forget. I don’t want to give away too much, but I think this will be my novel for Nano this year.
So, onto links. Unfortunately I only have two to give you today. They are the articles I wrote for the Marketplace that unfortunately didn’t get published. But they are still on Helium, so all is well that ends well. And I don’t want any comments on the first one, its embarassing just to post the link lol.

And for the record, the second is not exactly something I have experience with. But I did have fun writing it anyway. ~Stef
