The reason this Friday is so good is that its page on my calendar is completely blank.
I LOVE THAT!
Although I am going to make a quick grocery store run, today will be all about NaNoWriMo word count and getting some blog posts pre-scheduled.
I have three guests next week. My visiting authors represent memoir, mystery and romance, something for almost everyone.
Northern Colorado writer Pat Walker will be here Monday...her memoir, Dance of the Electric Hummingbird, describes her spiritual awakening at a Sammy Hagar rock concert and how her life has changed since that experience. I read an early draft of Pat's manuscript, a wonderful mix of inspiration and entertainment, and am now one of her biggest fans. I plan to be first in line at her December 1st book signing.
This Old House
Margot Kinberg blogs about crime fiction at Confessions of a Mystery Novelist... and was kind enough to use my first mystery, The Prairie Grass Murders, as one of her examples in a post called "My House is Out of the Ordinary". Many thanks to Margot for the mention and for quoting from my story.
The Versatile Blogger Award
Wyoming mystery author Cindy Keen Reynders passed on the Versatile Blogger Award to me this week. This is a really nice award. If you want to see the seven facts I revealed about myself back in July of 2010, follow the link to: More Award Fun -- Two for the Price of One.
I'd be most pleased if you'd pop over and join Cindy's new blog as a special thank you from me. You'll find her at Saucy Lucy Wisdom: Aunt Gladys and Cindy talk about the writing world. Aunt Gladys is one of the delightful characters in Cindy's mysteries.
I'll reserve the right to pass this award on again in a future post. Thanks again, Cindy.
And now we return to NaNoWriMo, especially since I fell a bit behind in word count yesterday. Sigh!
