Funnily enough, Gentle Reader, the title of this blog was a place holder for over the weekend while I was fiddling with it until I decided I liked it and left it there.
Holding pattern right now while I wait for my M&M edits. I was going to get all started on Imprudence but then I found out that the M&Ms were incoming. I thought their would be no point in beginning Imprudence only to have to stop before I had really gotten started.

So I’m taking today and tomorrow to do a fat load of business back log and prep for when I start the Spring of Epic Travel of Epicness. What does this entail? Well, things like readying the newsletter for the end of the month (the prizes are good this time, my darlings, really good); transferring notes and quotes from my various readings; catching up on the social media; coaxing Author Central into some proximity of functionality; tinkering with the website; processing research data; and Dealing With My Phone.
My phone is a putz. No, dears, no, there really is no more genteel way of putting it.
Some people, when a piece of technology dies, they are calm. They think to themselves, “Ah well, this is what happens, things die, programs fail.” Some people quietly go to their backups. They reboot with equanimity. Some people heave a heavy sigh an move on with their lives.
I am not one of those people.
When my phone dies it a is a personal affront. The phone HAS BETRAYED ME.
And that’s all I’m going to say about that… cursed little traitorous evil no-better-than-an-ugly-paper-weight piece of doody. Grrrr.
