It is Monday.

And oh my. Is it ever a Monday!!

I'm so tired today and having so much trouble focusing, not to mention the fact that I'm completely blue over missing the ACFW conference.

(And green with envy.)

(I'm teal.)

("The color of gangrene.")

(100 bonus point to whoever can name that movie. I'm pretty sure I've now used up my parentheses quotient for the next six months.)

Anyway. Enough complaining. And wishing I was the one drinking Starbucks with my fave author friends and meeting some of our awesome readers. ;) There is always next year! ;)

Needless to say, not a lot of writing is occurring in my house today. I've been working instead on catching up on emails, writing blogs and doing some of the non-writery stuff of being a writer.

I never in my life thought there would be so much non-writing that goes into being a writer!

What are you up to today?


  1. This evening, I've been getting to know the stories in my newly formed crit group (3 of us met at the conference, and we've emailed with the 4th). So exciting! If you've got any good advice for critiquing, I'll listen. :)

    I really wish you could have been there...but you've got at least one good excuse!

    1. How fun! Best advice I can give you is to just be honest but be tactful at the same time. ;)

      We will meet one of these days - and yes, I did have a good excuse! ;)

  2. That would be "The Wedding Planner." And the reason that my bridesmaids dresses were not teal. ;)

  3. Writing and website building is on my agenda! And finishing up a workshop. And...a million other things. :)

    1. Ack. I despise website stuff. I put it off and put it off until I can't anymore. Hope it's going well!

    2. It is, thank you! For me, it is such a huge enjoyment I almost get distracted from writing. :)

  4. Aw, man, now I really want to watch The Wedding Planner! :)

    I am plotting and brainstorming how to save my WIP from utter ruin and...not getting very far.

    I wish you could have been at the conference as well. It was so fun meeting Sarah and Betsy - I hope you and I can both get there next year, too!
