Off to Edit. And...

(Okay, that title sounds more suggestive than I intended...)

I'm going into hiding this week, working on the revisions suggested by my editor for Book #2 and scanning every song lyric I can find for subtitle inspiration. And between chapters, I'll be watching this video. See the backup singer in the orange dress? My goal is to perfect her shimmy: arm waves, the occasional kick ball change, funky wiggle during the chorus...love it. Every girl needs a good disco shimmy, and this is the one I want!

Given my German/French heritage, I don't think my body can do that ... even after a couple Tangerine Cosmopolitans. I'd just end up looking like Elaine from Seinfeld in that episode where she does her kool chick dance that looks more like spasmodic twitching (but she thinks she's UBER cool). Ha! Have fun editing ...

Smiles,
Stella

what's the title? (or aren't you allowed to divulge that info?) my vast mental library of songs may be able to come up with a few suggestions...

Oh my! This is a total time warp. Uh...I mean for people old enough to remember this. Because...um...I'm too young to remember this. So...er...never mind.
