Last Night

Last night I was talking to my good friend, Kathy Love. She writes wonderfully entertaining contemporaries and is about to come out with a very funny vampire series for Kensington Brava. Perhaps I should give you a little background about us before I tell the rest of the story. Kathy and I met at the 2001 Romantic Times Convention. I can’t remember how exactly, it was either over coffee or sitting next to each other at one of the scheduled talks. Suffice to say, we hit it off and have been friends ever since. She is without a doubt one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. She doesn’t necessarily ‘try’ to be funny. She just has a real quirky way of looking at the world. We had so much fun at the first one that we plan to laugh some more at next month’s
Romantic Times Convention.

Anyway, last night she told me about a link on Kate Rothwell’s site. I’m not even sure how to set this up other than to say that the Brawny paper towel marketing people are brilliant. If you’ve ever wanted to hear the perfect words from a guy then you MUST go to this site and watch some of the Brawny movies. Kathy and I were in tears on the phone as we watched them ‘together’.

During our Brawny giggle, I explained to her that my hero needed to die. She threw out a few ideas and wouldn’t you know it, the story clicked further into place. God, I love it when a plan comes together.

  1. LMAO at the part where he yanks the flowers out of the window and then asks if it was “too cheesy.” He’d be a bit annoying in bed. Too funny! On a bizarre note, my critique partner knows that guy in RL! Small world, eh?

  2. Coffee Jill, I just think it’s hilarious and I agree about the bed part. That’s too funny that your critique partner really knows him. LOL!

  3. I really hate the brawny commercial with the guy from sliders but he’s got a nice package (OMG I said that out loud) and the other one, with the tooth paste now that was just damned funny!

  4. Cece! You are SO bad. (evil grin)

  5. Yay!! on the story coming together.

  6. Congrats on the story taking shape! 🙂

  7. Thanks Sylvia and Amy. I’m not there yet, but I’m getting closer. 😀

  8. Well now that you’re story has come together, come on over here and fix mine.

  9. Yeah, and uh, mine. And bring a chocolate cupcake while you’re at it.

  10. Jill, LOL! I did mention a friend of mine came up with the idea to fix mine, right? Besides I don’t think my car can make it through all the beautiful snow you have up there. 😉

  11. Coffee Jill, I could probably do the cupcake, not sure about the story fix. My friend did make a good point when she came up with my hero’s conflict and a possible black moment the other day. She said that it’s far easier to fix someone else’s story than it is to fix your own. I do believe she has something there. (wg)
