Coming to you live from the snow-covered hills of upstate New York....
-A lot of second-guessing over Pete Carroll's decision to throw on 2nd down from the 1 yard line with 2 time outs. Interestingly, no one is second-guessing his decision to throw for the end zone with 10 seconds left and no time outs at the end of the first half rather than take the almost sure 3 points of a field goal. I actually understand his thinking on both plays, though if I'm coaching that team, there's no way Marshawn Lynch doesn't get the ball from the 1.
-And here's something: why on earth would you celebrate scoring a touchdown in what is the most-watched event in America (the world?) by pretending to take a dump on the field? What part of your brain is compromised if you think that's a good idea?
-I'm trying to think of more to write so I don't have to go out and shovel.
-Lost in the shuffle of Super Bowl week is the 1-year anniversary of my signing with Carrie Pestritto at The Prospect Agency--I might actually do a "How I Met My Agent" story at the end of the week. I am thrilled to be working with Carrie, and we're pushing for a successful 2015.
-At roughly 25% in, my current project has shrunk by 3,000 words. I love it when you can make a chapter or scene more substantial by adding to it, and still have the overall word count come down. Some day--and that day may never come--I'll learn to write it right the first time. Of course, if I did, I'd deprive myself of all this fun.
-I can ignore the snow no longer--have a nice week, everyone!
