Novels vs. fanfiction

So I was totally expecting it when I sent the manuscript package off to the publishing house and am actually impressed at how quickly they turned it around. The form rejection notice bugged me a little but I know it just means I have to work more. And before anyone panics *grin* it wasn't the TDC novel. The one I sent off is about Lexxie Scott (gee, there's a familiar name) and her twin sister Tiffany Franks. (yeah, I know) Lex is a fire captain and the girls are in the fanfic pieces "Outside influences" on WWOMB if anyone is curious. I am still working on the series just slowly.
I found this Snoopy strip that just made me smile and I know it'll be true more often than not in my life for the next few years until I find the right niche for my work. (it's the top one - I couldn't find it to download from the internet)



And while trying to work out how exactly I want to tell a seven-year-old her brother is a killer in the TDC novel I wrote a quick PWP involving Horatio, Mac, mirrors, a video camera and a laptop. Hmmm, maybe I should've put a kink warning on it. *grin* It's posted on both CSI Forensics and WWOMB.
I do promise as soon as I have the novel revision done I'll update TDC on both pages.

Do you remember the original CSI episode where Warrick was talking to the boy who was a pyro and burned down the house, killing his sister...maybe you should watch that again and it might help you get some ideas. RL sucks most of the time, we just have to enjoy the few times it doesn't! :)

My RL is hitting me really hard right now. Hope yours lets you have a break. Good Luck with your writing.

Re: Holmes
I think you'd like the novel. I use a lot of Sherlock Holmes references and techniques in it. *grin*
I do recall the episode and could probably dig it out. I'm still not overly happy with what I came up with but it beats the hunter history I just wrote. *rolls eyes*

I hope RL eases up for you. There are days I think the only thing you can do is kick back - I like to aim for the knees. :)
