SM Johnson ~ Thursday Afternoon Extra ~ My Reads 2013

Good afternoon my dear, dear darlings. Such a lazy little brat I was for TMC this morning, posting an unedited excerpt and all, that I've decided to add a chattier post for ya'll. Because, um. well, it's my blog, and I can do that if I want to.

I'm going to talk about my 2013 reading list, which is tabbed up top there on the far right, the one that says My Reads 2013.

I've never kept a complete reading list before. Oh, I have lists of authors, and small notebooks filled with books I've read from back in the day when going to the library was a weekly occurrence and I'd bring home books I'd already read and have little kicky-feet fits.... and I have lists of authors I love, and authors I hate, and which books in which series that I OWN, and which ones that I desperately WANT (this, for visiting rummage sales mostly) - but a public list of what I've been reading? - nope, never done that.

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Jeremiah Quick excerpt

Good morning, Darlings, is it Thursday already? How it always creeps up on me, I'll never know, but here we are.

So because it's late and I'm lazy, and all is right in my little world, I thought I'd share a (very rough) excerpt of my WIP, Jeremiah Quick.

That is what you come here for, right? Info and writer news and sneak peeks into books, more so than long rambling blog posts about head injuries and emotional messiness....

So let me oblige you! (And maybe by next week I'll write a synopsis, so you can get a better sense of what this book is about. Ha. Wouldn't that be just lovely?

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Life, Earth, Whatthefuckever

Oh, my darlings. This is not good, my headspace is not good, and I should not be writing this here. I should be in a Word document or creating a secret blog for this crap and not spewing it all over in public like this and under my own fucking name and everything... but ahhhhhh..... what. the. fuck. ever.

I promise myself a post for Thursday Morning Coffee, and so.... here we be. I suggest you just stop now and go find something much more entertaining to read (might I suggest StumbleUpon?), because nothing good is going to come of this sobbing whining self-pitying hopeless garbage.

It all started with a tremendous knock to the head. The details of this are unimportant and implicate someone who already feels terrible about it, so never mind.

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee~ Dare and Thomas

Good morning, Darlings, happy Thursday! Welcome to TMC: The Mighty Conundrum or... Teasing My Critics...

Every once in a while I go browsing for reviews. I know! It's bad! It's arrogant. It's being desperate for feedback from people who don't love me. A terrible thing to do.

But I admit I do it. Every few months I find myself surfing for reviews. Perhaps a little more often than that if I've had a recent release. I don't obsess about it, but I definitely have an appetite for learning what people think.

SM Johnson ~Thursday Morning Coffee ~ Read This Book

Good morning, Darlings, and welcome to TMC! (Too Many Confessions or Tween Mini Convention or....)

(grin)

Thursday. Morning. Coffee.

On Independence Day.

I'm going to be in a parade. Well, let me qualify that. I'm going to be in the air-conditioned cab of a tow-truck float in a parade. My child, with her co-actors for an upcoming play, will actually be on top of the truck-float, doing all the waving and tossing candy and such.
