Back in the Saddle Again

I'm baaaack!

My busy busy list is as long as my arm, but it feels good to be home with no more trips this summer. Of course, there's only a couple of weeks left of the season, so that doesn't mean much.

I decided to look back and see what I have accomplished so far.

1. Laguna proposal done. YAY!

2. Soap proposal done. YAY!

3. Articles done. Okay, I'm still working on that one, but to date I have finished a gazillion of them.

4. Book signing. I didn't die.

5. Speaking in front of a bunch of students. Ditto. Didn't die.

6. Lost weight. I think I have lost like seven pounds since June. Not too bad considering I spent five days in San Fransisco. Good eats there in San Fran!

7. Took Mom to Spokane. Again, it didn't kill me and I reconnected with a cousin which was fabulous!

8. Came up with two new ideas for books and one anthology.

Note: I actually met with the amazing Regina Scott while in Spokane. She's the author of the fabulous La Petite Four, which I just read and loved! We bounced some ideas back and forth and came up with an idea for a killer anthology. Woot!

9.Got a fab new critique partner! YA Baby!

10. Came up with a personal mission statement that will help me tweak my ideas to fit or discard them.

So yes, it has been an incredibly successful summer! How was your summer?

Yay on your summer. It looks like it was full and YOU DIDN'T DIE. Always important.

Oooh, and double yay for a new CP.

And triple yay for going to SF and STILL being down on the pounds.
