Liquid cake

Eggnog tastes like liquid cake to me. Maybe that in and of itself is enough reason to feel festive and to be happy.

I picked up a copy of Kindred, by Octavia Butler today at the library. I have picked up and checked out her work before, but I think that this is the time that I am going to read it. I felt drawn to it. Generally, I am not a science fiction reader.

I was discussing one of my ideas for a novel with someone from my writing group several months ago. She said that the concept reminded her of Octavia Butler. Now that I am trying to hash trough that novel through NaNoWriMo, I am feeling drawn to Butler. Junot Diaz, whom I really admire, had also mentioned her in an interview I read a few years ago. I think that last time I tried to read her, it was in response to that interview. Speaking of NaNoWriMo, I probably should be working on that novel right now. *sigh*
