The end of the week

I am looking at my writing to do list for the week and am feeling pretty good. I was able to cross out 20 things off of my list of twenty five. I didn't do so hot on the Home to do list, but that is sort of my MO. I am a bit disappointed on how difficult it is to get anyone to get back to you. I have called and emailed several people about Northwest woman and haven't recieved any responses at all. Mean, mean, mean.

HAd a great conference with the publisher of NW Woman. Everything is full speed ahead. Am excited about the prospects of this magazine. I have to work hard though to get it out there and get a lot of ads for it. I guess I am going to have to go to see the people who won't call me back:)

Oh, I am thinking about some contests for the Book Club... Any ideas? I think I am going to get a fabo prize for the first one, but I have to figure out how to do it. It should be tied into our next book... It will go into the next magazine. (Aug/Sept issue) The next book is set in World War two... should I do something along those lines? Maybe an essay on a notable world war two hero? Perhaps the best fictional letter written to a loved one fighting the war? Maybe a picture of a world War two fighter and a multiple answer question on what type it was and we draw from the ones that have it right? let me know what you think would be good and send me any ideas:)

My mom is coming up for the weekend. The ice princess has a compeition this weekend and the guys are going cmaping so it was perfect timing. Meggie hasn't been skating well, so we will see. I think she just needs to focus on testing and her training right now and stop competing so much for a bit. She doesn't need the extra pressure and she already has a lot to do this summer. It should be a good weekend. I would love to get another article done and the third chapter in my YA book. We'll see.

I like the fictional letter, Teri. Glad the conference went well and yay about crossing 20 of 25 things off your list.

I say if the Ice Princess doesn't start skating better, take all that skating money and put it toward a trip to Reno. ;o)

I know, I know. I'm a wicked, evil, cruel, uncaring, insensitive person. Don't worry, my mother reminds me of this all the time. lol

Don't think I haven't thought about it:)

TJ - I'm still amazed by your amazing To Do List. I really think you need to blog about this for those who are seriously faulty in our time management skills.
