I want a new toy

What I’m Reading: Over Sea, Under Stone: The Dark is Rising Sequence, Book 1 by Susan Cooper.

What I’m working on: 1) Adding to the ending of Slayer. 2) Writing a tough scene -- an all is lost scene for my hero in Slayer. There isn't anything pretty or pleasant about this scene. This is my hero at his lowest point, making his worst decision. I want to cry. I want to tell him, "No!" But if he doesn't go to this dark place, he'll never know what he's lost and the good guys will never win -- and he'll never get the girl. So I have to write it. No more putting it off. 3) I'm attempting a short story to submit to The Wild Rose Press.

New words today: My short story 619; Slayer 858

Weekly update on CFRWA's 100 words for 100 days challenge: This week, I wrote at least 100 words every day and ended up with 2602 for the week.

Update on my 15k in 30 days challenge: I'm a little behind, but not worried yet. I've written 4104. I have 18 days to go. That's a little over 600 words a day from here on out.

I'm fighting a really nasty cold. I gave it to my husband, too. So, now I'm not only sick, but I'm also taking care of a sick man. Between that and writing on my MIPs, I don't have any creative blogging abilities today.

Instead, of a real blog, I decided to post a picture of the newest toy I want. The more I check it out, the more I want it. I better start saving.

What is it?

It's an eBookwise-1150 eBook Reading Device with 64 Megabyte SmartMedia card. Check it out.

And... I want this in August when it comes out:

I have the eBookwise. Love it. For the money, it's a great deal and does what I need. Lets me download books and upload content from my computer.

Until the publishers get off their high horses about proprietary format and have a format that all readers can use, they industry will limp along, but at least it seems to be limping forward.
