I capped off a busy week with a super fun breakfast/reunion this morning. I got together with two friends who went on an exchange program to England with me in 1990 and the guy whose family hosted two of us. I had a wonderful time catching up with everyone – we talked about work and following your passion and kids and we reminisced and laughed and ate good food. It was one of those “picking up where you left off” experiences, really. And, I scored a roll of Rowntrees Fruit Gums. 🙂
Then I took the kids to a fun Star Wars birthday party (did you know that there are blow-up lightsabers?) and now we’re all worn out and I finally have time to do my ROW80 update.
I was a blogging fool this week. I participated in the YA Scavenger Hunt – which was a blast! Many thanks to Colleen Houck for including me. I also wrote a lengthy post that will go up on the 10th for the 12 Days of Christmas Reading. So, if YA books aren’t you thing and you didn’t get in on the scavenger hunt, you’ll want to make the rounds on 12 Days – lots of giveaways of all types of books.
Writing-wise, this week was a bit of a bust, but I don’t feel too badly about it because I was doing so many other author-centric things. 600 words on Back in Time and 87 on a pen name story on Friday. I want to finish both stories this week. We’ll see what happens – when I think my week is going to be chill it suddenly becomes busy.
Here’s to us all getting off one stop before Crazytown Central.
