It's Friday Again ....Yay!

Here's some good stuff and a few links you might want to check out:

The Video for the Northern Colorado Writers Conference

This may be the only place you will see mountain climber and author Jim Davidson in a feather boa, not to mention writer Tim Northburg in a tiara:





Speaking of Jim Davidson, you might want to check the "I Shouldn't Be Alive" series on Animal Planet and see if you can catch a showing of "Killer Crevasse." It's heart-stopping and almost too terrifying to watch, even though we all know Jim survives this horrifying experience.


Northern Colorado Writers on Facebook

The Friday Question of the Week has been posted. You can go here to answer.

And you might want to check out that Conference Countdown update as well, because you can actually win prizes for that. For more information, visit The Writing Bug blog Conference Countdown Week One.


Fixing Madison blog

Luana Krause has created a blog called Fixing Madison, written by fictional character Madison W. The posts are short and fun...and just a tiny bit poignant in places, especially when Madison tells us stuff she decides not to share with her therapist. I'm enjoying the concept and the posts, so maybe you will too.


...then she writes blog

Science fiction and YA writer and northern Coloradoan, Heidi Windmiller has restarted her blog ...then she writes about the writing and editing process. She had a good reason for her hiatus (but I'll let you visit her blog to find out what that was). Heidi has five WIPs listed in her sidebar, but I was most taken with the one she's pretending doesn't exist. I totally understand that.


Auntie Pat Says:

You don't have to finish every single project you start.


And that's the truth.

That's a good truth. I've got one i'm not sure is worth finishing at this point in time. My heart's just not with it.

It's only recently I've been able to set stuff aside when it's just not working. Thanks for the link to Heidi Windmiller.

Auntie Pat shouldn't lure me away from my work. I'm trying to stay focused here.

Heidi said...

Thanks for the support in mentioning my blog and becoming my first follower! I have warm fuzzies.

Karen Lange said...

Thanks for all the links. And I think I like Auntie Pat! :)

I'm just now showing up because Friday turned out to the beginning of a Katie Kitten trauma. Poor thing was so sick, and we had to rush her off to the vet yesterday and then monitor her misery all day and half the night. Things are better now, although who knew a tiny cat could hawk a tiny pill so far across a room. Pill time is quite an adventure.

Thanks to you ladies for stopping by. Maybe I'll bring Auntie Pat back as a regular feature. She's very outspoken. :)
