This whole radio silence thing feels WEIRD. Like Nano ended and my life picked up at full speed and I just lost my blog by the side of the road. LOL.
So since Nano I have cleaned my house. Like the kind of cleaning you do when your son has a cat and you have cat allergic family members coming to stay with you…cause he does and I do. In fact my Father in Law arrived yesterday and my Sister in Law and family arrive today.
Why are they coming now? Because Saturday is Sinterklaas. It’s a Dutch Christmas time holiday where a jolly fat man leaves candy in your klompen. Grown ups move about from house to house eating and drinking special treats all evening long.
So that’s it, cleaning and preparing for a party. And in the moments I wasn’t doing that I was earning coins in the subway surfers game because my son fell in love with this little Japanese anime girl but you had to get 95K by last night midnight and my kiddo couldn’t do it. So he asked me to help. My husband thought I was crazy to do it. I probably was but…this morning when I gave my son my kindle and told him to load up subway surfers he started to cry. He was so overwhelmed. He didn’t think I would do it. Pretty damn cool to be a mom some days.
So what’s on the horizon?
Well, Family, Friends, big ass party (40 odd guests I think.)
Next weekend I am giving an author chat to a book club which read my book. Thank god it’s at a Tavern, I think much alcohol will be required so I don’t die on the spot.
Then I need to finish this year’s Nano novel because….drum roll….
Sheri J Kennedy and I are teaching a ten month long seminar at the North Bend library, third Saturday of each month, from 1030-noon, entitled Nano to Publish. The idea is to help people take their raw Nano novel and cook it up into something to be served to the reading public. So I need to have a raw Nano novel to demonstrate my cooking on. LOL
What about the blog? um…huh…Well I missed my writers cafe update last night, cause I didn’t go…FIL here and all. And I think Friday’s writers cafe will be pretty not happening for me for a while. I enrolled the kiddo in a Leonardo DaVinci’s inventions class on Friday mornings through February. I think I’m going to have to wing it a little. I feel like the weekend workshops were not all that well received. But I plan to still blog about what I uncover while researching how to help people publish their stuff. And book reviews, book reviews will continue. What do you think about a movie or tv show review each week too?
How about we just agree you’ll show up to read and I’ll show up to write and we’ll see where it takes us….
