The Good, The Bad and the Unorganized

IN THE NEWS: "Police say a Michigan man has been arrested after "receiving sexual favors from a vacuum" at a car wash." Read more HERE.

GOOD:

Well, I heard some great news this weekend. One of critique partners, C.D. Yates sold her story Kissing Trick to The Wild Rose Press! Yay!!!!
Let me tell you, she writes romantic comedy and her stories are capital F funny, so I'm very excited for her. (And as soon as she gets her blog and website up and running, I'll post her link)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Also, voting for both the Cover Awards and the Trailer Awards for October is now open. Yours truly (me) is one of the contenders for the trailer awards. :) Please visit http://thenewcoveyawards.blogspot.com/and vote for your favorite. (Which I hope is me)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BAD:

Now for the not so great news. The Red Sox lost game 7 last night and will NOT be in the World Series. Wah!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
UNORGANIZED:

This weekend I realized how totally unorganized certain areas of my life have become, and since I'm waiting for crits on my story, I decided to tackle these areas before I start my next writing project. As a result, I now have a junk drawer that's attractive to look at, and my snack cabinet no longer looks like it was bombed by Frito Lay.
I have more on the list and will even post pictures. Maybe before and afters. Wait until you see my Tupperware drawer. Ick.

Anyhew, I'm off to food shop now. I'm trying a new homemade tomato soup recipe tonight. If it's good, I'll post it.

What are you doing today?

I have so much to do today, I'm not going to bore you with the staggering list. Suffice it to say, I'll be busy.

Off to vote!

I'm working on crits today after I come from my chiropractor visit. Didn't get much accomplished over the weekend because I did an editing workshop for a writers group at a local church on Saturday then went out to dinner with my girlfriend. Yesterday we had my grandson's 8th birthday party.

BTW, I finished J.R. Ward's latest book, and it was fascinating. It only contains an 80-pg. short story, but has LOTS of insight into her writing process. I'll probably blog about that this week.

Going to vote for you now.

What am I doing? Nursing nasty allergies and a sore throat and praying my kids are good. And congrats to your crit partner!
