Fun Facts Friday

This week was one of those weeks. I'm not even going to recap the horrible of it. Just the fun parts.

1. I have the best blogging friends in the world. You guys are the best cheerleaders and you know how to kick me in the butt. Thanks guys. I really can't thank you enough.

2. After a CP session with the incredible, Crystal, I sat down and revised a chapter and re-wrote 1000 words. She rocks. Thanks dear lady.

3. Can't wait to meet more blogging buddies in person this weekend in Philly. Should be fun!

4. I'm reading the book Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready and love it. Oh yeah, isn't the cover oh so pretty. The insides are just as delicious. Can't wait till the sequel.

5. Don't forget Writing the Next Line Blogfest....Monday. I can't wait to read the entries. Let's just say, I may develop my entry into a story. Yeah, I know, finish those revisions first!

6. In the news-- I saw this lady walking in the mall texting and she fell in a fountain. Now, she wants to sue the mall. Really? Like you don't have better things to do. Don't get me goin' on this one.

Keepin' it short today.

Any weekend plans?

Any books you want to share?

Let me know how your writing is coming along.

Have a great weekend!

  2. ROFL about the women. Seriously?

    I'll have to check out the book. Love the cover!

    I'm working on the edits to my new wip this weekend . . . and for everyday for the next months after that. ;)

    Have a great weekend, Christine!

  7. My son told me that the woman in the fountain is wanted in Pennsylvania for several felonies - and that they found her because of her wanting to sue.

    My weekend plans are centered around my daughter's Upward basketball game tonight and volunteering tomorrow afternoon in the Snack Shack. But I don't feel bad - since last weekend I was in Aruba.

    I am working on finishing my children's chapter book - only 3 chapters to go!

    Just finished reading Fireflies in December (on my Kindle). Great book, now I'm reading Oliver Twist.

  8. Haha, love that the woman walked into a fountain! And of course, she thinks it's the mall's fault for putting a fountain there at all. Her texting has nothing to do with it...

  9. Thanks for mentioning Shade, I hadn't heard about it ( I know where have I been, right?)

    Busy revising a YA one chapter at a time, it took two days just for chapter one. Today, I revise chapter two..or at least start revising.

  15. Good CPs are better than chocolate. :D

    Good luck with finishing up! I'll be slogging through a revision on a short story. Have two more to get done, then I need to get back to revisions on my novel.

  16. That is a gorgeous cover. Today was a snow day, but I'm feeling under the weather so I didn't enjoy it as much as I should've.

    I just finished Across the Universe on the 15th, which was awesome. I really, really loved it. And I just finished Uglies today. Good book.

    Have a great weekend!

  17. That book does look good. And that lady really irritates me about the fountain thing. Just take your embarrassment like a champ and laugh at yourself already.

  18. That book looks great. I'll add it to my never-ending pile. I hope your weekend and next week are infinitely Better than this one.

  19. Enjoy your weekend... It should be fun.

    I had a major editing glitch, but I'm getting through it. Not as bad as I though.

    Congrats on the 1000 words! Keep going!
