Undersea Sulkers

Did you know ELOCUTE is actually not a word? I mean, you can use elocution obviously, but you can't make it act as a verb. If you put it into SPELL CHECK, spell check says you probably mean EELPOUT. Eel? Pout? Eelpout is a word?!?!? I was so happy to find the word eelpout I should have left it alone. I had to go look it up. It's a stupid noun. Bah. I SO wanted it to be a VERB. "Veronica eelpouted her way through the last half of the party."

YAY I am so pleased. Miriam-Webster assured me it is not a word. I looked it up because I made a bet with my husband that it was! And I LOST. Now I am...rewinnered.

OMG I LOVE your writing. When will your book be out? Will you please blog about the writing process and about your novel? Will you have a book tour? Signings? Hairless cabana boys?

Read my blog. There will be a quiz.
