And why is this, you might ask?
Because you will find yourself sitting and working on your manuscript wondering what possible harm there could be in stopping long enough to read Justice League Dark or the new issue of Batman.
I also received, for my purchases, a Legion of Super-Heroes Legion ring. If you are unfamiliar with either the Legion or the accompanying ring it's like this:
- The Legion of Super-Heroes is a team of heroes from the 30th and 31st century who are buddies with Superboy. Saturn Girl. Lightening Lad. Bouncing Boy. Matter Eater Lad. It's like that.
- Members of the Legion were each given a ring that allowed all of them to fly.
And now, I have one.
Of course, on my way out the door, Comic Dealer did remind me, "Just don't test it out. Okay?"
Somewhat amazingly, this warning appears no where on the ring...which is really just kind of asking for it.
1. Besides spending time writing in your blog as the 10,000 word checkpoint is just 24 hours away. For those who are wondering, the NaNoWriMo counter says that, at the pace I am going, I will finish my novel by February 1. This sounds impressive, were it not for the fact that, as I may have mentioned, I'm still finishing last year's novel.
