  1. Hey fellow Storyists! I recently completed the final draft of my horror novel and am about to submit query letters. I'm posting my query letter here, and hoping for some helpful feedback. Thanks much! Dear Ms. Agent: Three days ago, Chuka awoke in a lake on the outskirts of North Platte, NE. Two days ago, two fishermen attacked a family in the park, littering the yard with their bodies. With them, they brought a squid-like parasite. One day ago, all across the city, the infected went insane. It’s kill or be killed for them. The whole town is aware of this. Except Charles. He spent t
  2. Thanks for the congratulations and well-wishes, everyone. And M, Happy Birthday to your mom! Brian
  3. Hey everyone, I just gotta brag, 'cause I am one proud daddy. My baby girl, Esme Marie, was born January 6, 2013, 11:34 PM. She was 20 3/4 inches and 7 lbs, 12 ounces. Just three days old, she holds her own head up and already flips from her back to her side. That's talent! But if you don't believe my word for it, check out the image I'm attaching! She'll knock your block off. I should add that I am absolutely the happiest man on Earth right now. I never knew it was possible to love someone so. Brian
  4. Orren, now that I have your approval, I shall proceed with the plans. . I just came up with the idea of having a reese's cake and a kit Kat cake, and she loved it. Now we have to produ the recipe. M, I love shopping more than she does, so I'm fine with this.
  5. That is most likely the path we will take. We've considered doing a dessert buffet of some sort. Definitely Reese's (my favorites) and Kit Kats (hers). Then add in some fancier things. Brian
  6. Thoth, That's fantastic! I love how customizable it is. She's latin, and I'm super white, so it's been difficult finding anything. Also, she's taller than me, which is another thing working against us. The ideal topper would have a pregnant latina six inches taller than her caucasian groom, and they'd both be in dark blue. That's not likely. But the link you posted is so close! Thanks, Brian
  7. Thanks, T & M! As for marriage, we signed up for a two-year engagement because we wanted to enjoy the engagement while it lasted. The two years ends on December 11. We will get married on that day. Hopefully, the baby decides not to come too early. Either way, everyone who knows us already sees us as being married, and even the most religious and pious of them have no problem with it. So, I figure, we're in the good with God, unless he decides to check with the U.S. Government to see what date our marital papers were signed. --B
  8. There are times when life kicks you in the groin, and then times when it kisses ya on the mouth and leaves you blushing in a corner. This is closer to the latter. One week and five hours ago, my fiancé and I went into the bathroom and took a scary little test, and after a few minutes, were met by two pink lines. My fiancé's response puts it best. She hesitated, then said in a weak, soft voice, "What the ****?" I should note here that it was a happy sort of "what the ****," if you can imagine it in the happy way. It was the overwhelmed sort of "what the ****," said not necessarily for its
  9. For me, I'd go with "Desperation," by Stephen King. I get a little creeped out whenever I see a police cruiser behind me now. And because of "IT," I can never look a storm drains.
  10. The title says it all. I'm curious to see what the Storyist community is afraid of. Name a book that scared you. It doesn't have to be horror. It need simple to have scared you.
  11. Ouch! Thoth, come on now. Get down off of those pins and needles. They're poking you. Now, if you insist on staying up there until you know, then here you go--I made it to 125 Saturday, then 130 Sunday. Now, I get to revise and revise and revise some more, and just keep right on revising until my committee and graduate division approve it. I'm so close. So, I say, throw a celebration in my honor. Praise me for the awesomeness I possess. And I shall see to it that one of my servants rewards you. The King of Randomness, Brian
  12. Looks like I missed a day of posting. I got called in for a meeting with the instructor for the course I teach. She needed help fixing some other TAs grade books. That derailed me a little. Nevertheless, I'm at 112 pages. That means, if I write 16 pages today, I'm golden. 16 pages in a day is not the simplest undertaking, but it can be done. I have 8.5 hours left in the day, so two pages an hour should do it. Will Brian push forward and reach his target, or will he miss his leap and fall into the fiery chasm of chasmness and flames? Find out next time on "Master of Fine Arts and Th
  13. Happy birthday, Ginny J! Take it easy today and do something nice for yourself.
