It's not that I didn't try. I couldn't get a ball of snow to pack hard enough for rolling. I thought the snow was wet and it would be easy. It's windy, but not unbearably cold. I was sure the relative warmth would keep the snow sticky. Nope, not at my house.
I should never have set myself up for failure. Especially at making a snowman. This is depressing.
On a happier note, I'm getting inside chores done and I have a lovely beef stew (grass-fed beef, of course) in the crock pot. Smells really good.
(Here's where I sneaked away from the computer for a moment and grabbed a piece of dark chocolate. I feel much better now.)
I know a few of you (like me) are working on queries in the upcoming months, so here are three recent blog posts you might want to check out:
How to Format a Query Letter at Nathan Bransford, Literary Agent
5 Query Letter Tips at Chuck Sambuchino's Guide to Literary Agents Blog
Interesting Posts About Writing - w/e March 19 2010 at Jon Gibbs' An Englishman in New Jersey (this one has more links to posts and articles about writing queries)
And for everyone, pop over the Kerrie Flanagan's The Writing Bug and catch her Author Interview: Stephen J. Cannell. He's a fascinating guy, so if you enjoyed Rockford Files or one of the other Cannell shows back when, or read his ongoing Shane Scully mystery series, you'll enjoy this peek into his life.
Visit Cricket McRae, author of the home crafting mystery series, at Hearth Cricket. She has posted a recipe for a bread boule that might put all of us in the baking mood.
Hope you're having a great day.
