I Don’t Know

I don’t know how much e-books should cost.  I’ve read arguments for sliding-scale prices.  I know lots of people don’t want to pay over a certain price.  I don’t have an answer.

I don’t know whether Macmillan’s agency agreement would be better for authors and readers than some other approach.

I don’t know how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop.

I don’t know whether people are going to love Snow Queen.

I don’t know where I get my ideas.

I don’t know when I’ll be able to post the cover art to Red Hood’s Revenge [B&N | Mysterious Galaxy | Amazon].

I don’t know how long I have before my son stops running up to hug me when I come home from work.

I don’t know if my home has adequate weaponry to protect my family against the zombie uprising.

I don’t know whether I should set Snow Queen revisions aside for a week so I can write up and pitch a new series to DAW.

I don’t know why “Single Ladies” won a Grammy.  (But I think it had something to do with the Chipmunks movie.)

I don’t know why I’m so incredibly bad with names and faces.

I don’t know how Randall Munroe does it.

I don’t know how single parents balance work, kids, and sanity.

I don’t know why the catfish in our aquarium keep dying.

I don’t know why religion is ever worth killing for.

I don’t know if I should create a fan page on Facebook.

I don’t know whether an anime-style Snoopy fighting cat-ninjas would be awesome or terrifying.  ETA: socchan brings the awesome here.

I don’t know where this post came from.  I guess I just thought the Internet would be a slightly better place if people were willing to admit they didn’t know things from time to time.

357. I've proved this a few times.

I strongly suggest consulting Pruess on this. They are the next best thing to consulting an aquatic biologist.

You probably need the break. Write it up, then hold off on pitching it until Snow Queen is done. That way, when you're done melting your proverbial candle in the smelter, you can go back to that idea and tweak it a bit before pitching it.

YES. Embrace the power of And on this one. Trust me.

Preuss is where we got them, so I'll probably be giving them a call at some point. They survived a while, so I don't think they sold us sick fish, but both catfish died while the guppies are all still going strong.

I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or giggle hysterically. ;-)

Oh great. Now my wife thinks I've finally snapped.
