My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Summarize myself, eh?

I'm a writer!

I have published my first novel, and am working on the next in the series.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OFD7B28

So far, it's a hobby that pays :)

I'd like to live off of being a writer, and I focus a lot of my energy in this direction.

In the meantime, I pay the bills as a call center employee. I'm a low-level manager who mainly receives escalated calls (the customers who wish to speak to the supervisor). My job is to enforce my company's policies as politely as possible.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Day to day ~

I get up thinking about what would realistically happen next in my book, and how I'd go about writing it.

I head into work, where I perform my regular tasks, all while thinking about the story, and occasionally writing little snippets of it while there.

After work, I write. I hang out with my kitty, put my grooveshark account on, and I write.

Kind of a pattern, lol
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'd like to think I'm a good writer ~

I have a few scenes I like:

"Have you seen, or otherwise detected any unusual persons on the road or within your property lines during the last three days?”

“No. I haven’t.”

“What about your husband?”

“Oh. You raise a fine point. Yes, during the last three days, I have detected the unusual person of my husband; several times in fact.”

“…no, I meant, has your husband detected any unusual persons.”

“He has not informed me of such. So, no.”

“…would your husband be likely to withhold information from you if he felt the information might disturb you?”

“He’d be unwise to do so, though there are times I wish he would.”

“…what?”

Some mushy stuff:

"You are the first woman in my life, for whom I have ever longed to make my last."

"..."

"I hereby renounce my title. I renounce my Royal Commission. I would renounce my every last scrap of knowledge, save for any memory of your smile, were you to tell me, here and now, that you would have me at your side for so long as stars make light. I love you, my Marabeth Blue… would you take my name?”

And so, I wed my woman, then and there... and forever bid there be no other.

~ :)

I dabble with poetry:

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite Book: Walden.

Favorite Movie: Salute of the Jugger (it is called 'Blood of Heroes' in the American release, which is a silly name, but meh).

Favorite show: I really don't watch regular television. I can't stand the commercials, and laugh tracks are extremely annoying to me.

I do like some shows though; my pals will rave about them, I'll try an episode or two, and if I like it enough, I'll usually just get the whole series on DVD. Yes, I dislike commercials this badly.

Favorite music: Filmscores, soundtracks, instrumentals of all stripes. I have an old flame for blues and Irish/Celtic tunes. I play guitar and bass under a heavy blues influence.

Favorite Food: I like Thai, and I make an excellent steak.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Clarity of thought
2. The ability to write
3. The ability to make music
4. Cognitive challenge
5. Books of all stripes
6. Questions to answer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My book series ~ what should happen next, what the characters are thinking about.

For some reason lately, the hydrocarbon lakes discovered on Titan have really been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I don't know why exactly; just the idea that there are lakes of liquid butane the size of lake Superior on one of Saturn's moons has utterly captivated me.

The idea of standing on a beach, the temperature a balmy -300 degrees, taking in a sky almost entirely blotted out by the planet Saturn and its rings, this fantastic image doubled against the placid surface of a liquid body absolutely brimming with chemical energy...

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
