Saturday Six

1. Sorry I disappeared all week. WritOnCon ended up so awesome, I spent all my free time over there. A HUGE thank you to all those who helped put it on, but especially Elana Johnson, Lisa & Laura Roecker, Jamie Harrington, Shannon Messenger, and Casey McCormick. If you missed out, the transcripts, forums, and chat rooms are still up. Check them out, you’ll learn so much!

2. I’ve been trying to catch-up on reading. Both friend’s manuscripts and books in print. Stay tuned for some great recommendations!

3. Today is my 11th wedding anniversary. Can’t tell you how excited I am for a night out of uninterrupted conversation without having to wipe someone’s mouth, nose, or other orifice.

4. I’m ready to return to my Jedda Hitler manuscript with fresh eyes. Almost. I need to work on fact checks and character sketches a little more.

5. Lydia Kang raised an interesting question in the last Wild Wednesdays (or The Nature Oracle Speaks, as my husband mockingly calls it). I’m not sure she meant for an answer, but I’m going to next week anyway! It’s that intriguing.

6. For those of you who know about my Mom’s fight with cancer, she’s had her (we hope!) last chemo. Depending on what the CT next week says, she might get a well-needed vacation from treatments for awhile. Hooray for the strongest woman I know!

That’s all I got. Oh… maybe one thing more…



  1. Happy Anniversary! Mine's in two weeks. Hope you guys have a great night out.

  2. Congrats and happy anniversary! We just had our 8th wedding anniversary last Tuesday. :)

  3. I've got everything crossed for your mum! I hope she does get that well deserved holiday from the Chemo treatments! I shall light a candle in my heart for her and keep it burning bright!

    CONGRATULATIONS for your 11th wedding anniversary!! And thank you for sharing that lovely pic of you and hubby. You both look so happy and so good together! I hope you celebrated in style!

    GOOD LUCK with your Jedda Hitler (my jaw is still dropped wide open at the premise of this book - LOL!!) revisions!!!! All the best with this.

    Have a lovely weekend! Take care

    I hope you guys had a lovely anniversary!!!

    I'm hoping to drop by your house on our next's our 25th next summer. I've started hinting...Saturday night we were in Minneapolis at a hotel in the lobby chatting with this man who was from Phoenix, so I ever so casually mentioned (infront of my husband) that I was hoping to celebrate our 25th anniversary at Havasu Falls next summer. It wasn't the first time he'd heard it come out of my mouth to perfect strangers. LOL. It won't be the last....I'm sure he'll get the hint.

  22. I just had my 11th anniversary too, in July. Beautiful picture.

  23. Happy Anniversary!! Love the picture. And hooray for your mom's success with chemo. I hope and pray she goes into remission for good.

  25. Happy Anniversary! I hope you had a wonderful day celebrating! Good luck with your manuscript & best wishes to your mom!
