It happens. With me, it usually happens after I’ve made some sort of push with a project–in this case, finishing Deshay of the Woods and starting the querying process. Don’t worry, though. To the one or two fans out there (thanks, Mom!), I’m not taking a break or anything, just taking a breather…and there is a difference, I swear.

- Because metal was scarce, the Oscars given out during World War II were made of wood.
- Bruce Lee was so fast that they actually had to slow film down so you could see his moves, which is opposite of the norm.
- The original name for butterfly was flutterby.
- The phrase “rule of thumb” is derived from an old English law which stated you couldn’t beat your wife with anything wider than your thumb.
- Charlie Chaplin once won third prize in a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest.
