Wow! it's Monday...
Yes, another contest has caught my eye. Since my kiddos are sleeping according to German time and well the focus on my WiP is swirling in a haze --I have been scanning blogs. Not commenting much though--so sorry. Anywho, I came across this contest.
Roni and Julie's Epic Summer contest--Lots of critiques to be given away. Since I like to torture myself, I have entered. Ends August 8th.Which is today.
Tuesday is writeoncon. If you have not signed up you better get over there. I have to say I'm a little nervous. I'm scared I'm going to screw something up, do something wrong or embarrass myself somehow. There are so many awesome and totally talented people that are involved in this which is so great. I'm mostly nervous because I hope to get a little of my baby critiqued. The new stuff. The risk chapter. We will see how that goes. ***heartbeating fast, pinching in my gut***
I've had blog block lately. Not much to say because I have so much junk pushing it's way around in my head. I'm not sure where to start. It's quite overwhelming. It's been happening a lot lately. I think I need a few good writing sessions to clean it out. The MCs are fighting again along with Pessy and Opti. So sorry if the blog posts are repetitive and boring. The weather is not helping either--humidity and heat--puh.
I thought I was catching up on my reading but --holy cow-- there is way too much out there. I started Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton. I think I should have read it before I read the Hunger Games (I will say it again--LOVED IT). Guilty Pleasures is a little slow for me right now. I may stop reading and come back to it. I never do this --stop a book I started. I feel bad and have to finish it but this one might be my first. I picked up Linger and Vampire Academy which are staring me in the face with some sexy eyes. Not to mention--Candor and Hex Hall which are sitting right beside them throwing a cute smile. The books are as bad as my MCs tempting me in way too many directions. Whew!
I'm posting early cause a lot is going on tomorrow--plan to write and revise. :) How was your weekend?
