This and That

Here's the bio I actually sent:

Teri Brown turned to writing in a desperate attempt to keep from having to get a paying job at her local McDonalds. Fortunately, she's been successful, and her book, Read My Lips (Simon Pulse), stars a deaf girl who uses her amazing lip-reading ability to infiltrate the popular crowd, take down a secret sorority and tame the school rebel. Teri lives with her husband and children in a dilapidated 1969 ranch style house in Portland, Oregon

Still me but not quite as offensive:)

Am leaving tomorrow for Emerald City! YAY! My friend Kerensa and I are heading up and sharing a room. Am too excited. I plan on staying up too late, meeting up with friends, drinking too much and maybe even pitching an editor or two.

My friend, Kerensa, is also responsible for getting me tickets to see The Portland Opera's rendition of Cinderella! WOOHOO! I am taking my best friend as she has the girly girls and needs a break.

Writing wise... am having trouble with sources and that means I am not getting my articles doen on time. Fiction is going well and am developing a new concept for another romance. I know. I already have tons of ideas I need to work on, but the ideas keep coming!

What do you do with all your ideas?

I like that bio better. Sounds less like you need a 12 step program. lol

I try to make notes on my ideas, but sometimes I just keep them filed in my head. Not the most organized place, but I work with what I've got.

I always open a new folder for each idea/book title and then 6 months later I go and look at it and realize that I was taking crazy pills at the time. Then I think perhaps idea isn't so bad so I add some more notes to it, then wait another 6 months and repeat process. Have fun at conference!!!!

I love the bio. Have fun at the conference!
I have a really organized system for my new ideas. Post-it's, everywhere. It's pathetic.
Have a great weekend!
