Stumbling and Staggering and Banging into October
Some days just feel like a continental slide. You’re ready and willing to address the needs of the day, but those needs keep tilting and tripping all over one another. Today would be one of those days–probably ’cause it’s bumping up against October and can feel our impatience to be on with the next month. Personally, I’m hoping to pull out Halloween decorations this weekend, and maybe whip up some pumpkin pancakes, too!
But instead of having the high-energy work and cleaning day I planned for, I spent my morning in the doctor’s office listening to the lady who was taking my blood tell me how her mom and kids were at home puking.
She was wearing gloves, but I kinda wish she’d added a mask to that! At least I got some meds that should take care of the nausea and ear pain I’ve been swimming through. Remember my post a couple weeks back with the cute little girl sick in bed? Yeah, it’s been that long, and I still haven’t kicked this. But! But, but, but! Today is Friday, and I have faith in Fridays.
So, newsy bits and pieces for Friday:
- I entered my query for 13 Demon Days in Mystery Agent Inbox (entry #39) over at Mother. Write. Repeat. If you go check it out, you’ll get a quick look at my first 250 words of immortal text, and feel very special for having been privileged with a glimpse, I’m sure! Seriously, though, drop by and tell me what you think!
- I posted a blog on the Cabinet in which I touched on a few highlights from the SCBWI Carolinas Conference last weekend. We also have an interview with Caleb Warnock available, which I’m tardy in mentioning. But, Caleb’s insights are timeless, so no harm done!
- Lastly, congrats to fellow cabinet member Becca Fitzpatrick on the announcement of a fourth book in her Hush, Hush saga! Woot, woot, goooo Becca!!!
So, that’s it for me. Here’s hoping your fun and games for the weekend will be a monumental success, and your Friday only slides in the direction you’re trying to go!
