Where You'll Find Me

I'm currently running my blog over at WritersAfterDark.net. I'd love it if you stopped by and hang for a bit! I'll return the favor, promise!

Running two blogs gets a bit difficult, so bear with me while I figure things out. In the meantime, if I could interest you in industry news, writing tips, and poking some fun at writerly problems, you'll find me here:

Celebrating the Past Few Weeks & 10 Things Every Serious Writer Has

Err . . . hi? gfxlovers.com/smilies

So I thought I'd hit you up with some past celebrations, and I'll even go visit you. How nice of me, no? o_0

*Having a blast with the kiddos this summer. So much better when they're a bit older and more independent to run around on their own. Woot!

*I saw Christina Perri in person a couple weeks ago on a date night (which was also nice). For FREE. She was singing at a park ten minutes from home for a radio event. It was cool 'cause I write to some of her songs for both Kinetic and Static, and the third. And two other books. Umm, yeah I like her music, apparently.

*My workouts had gone on vacation for the summer, but I resumed those suckers. Yet again. One thought: Ouch, ouch, ouch. Why can't I commit and stick with it? If only to avoid the initial soreness each time I restart my routine. Sigh.

*I had a FUN time with our very own C. Lee McKenzie last week. I invited her to Coffee Chat to discuss middle age women and young boys, AND to scare the "ahem" out of Lynda. Come check it out! 

*Because this is true, and because #10 was one of my genius thoughts (which doesn't say much about me, but that's not the point):

  4. Good list! I'm guilty of the notebook thing. I have tons, but I never write in them because I have horrible handwriting and it would ruin my pretty notebooks...

  8. I hate writing a synopsis. I think it's one of the absolute worst parts of writing.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Sounds like you had a great summer! I find it a lot easier too to do things with the kids when they're older. Hope your workout aches and pains go away quickly! And thanks for the list. So true, particularly #6. Enjoy your weekend!

  11. Love this list, and love all the fun things you've gotten to see and do this summer, especially the concert, since it was a last-minute surprise.

    And I think Raymond should pay you for your Ten Pen idea, because not only is it cool, it rhymes. That costs extra.
