So Excited!!

This is my absolute favorite musical, ever! I've watched this at least ten times already. Can't get enough.

Christmas is too far away. :(

Share the Lubov Critique Giveaway

I know it seems like I'm running the I ♥ Karen Show lately, but what can I say? I'm super excited for her. Plus she's having an awesome giveaway to celebrate her book deal, so I have to share.

Up for grabs:

A full manuscript critique from Karen--this alone makes the contest awesome, but then she added this...

A FIRST THREE CHAPTERS CRITIQUE from her agent, Victoria Marini!!!

Contest ends June 1st, so hurry over and check it out!

Congrats, Karen! Wait, didn't I write this post already?

Seems like I was just congratulating crit buddy Karen Akins on getting an agent and now she has a two-book deal! How freaking awesome is that? Way to go, Karen! You're the bomb diggity, yo!*

*This last bit is for my twelve-year-old daughter who is sitting here, watching me write this. She hates when I say that in front of her friends, so of course, it needed to find its way into a blog post for the whole world to see. ;)

Still Alive

Almost three months without a single blog post? I don't think that has ever happened. Well, for those of you who are still around, I haven't completely fallen off the face of the earth, just a little buried lately.

We moved into a new house in March--new to us, anyway. It's been a huge blessing, but there's still so much work to do. It's a bit of a fixer-upper. And how do we have so much stuff? This house is considerably bigger than our last house, but it's already full and we have a very full two car garage without any cars in it. I think sunlight might be causing my junk to multiply. Obviously, the solution is to just seal off the garage and never go in there again. ;) I'm hoping to have it all unpacked by 2014 or whenever.

Awesome things are happening at work. That's all I can say on that for now... But I can say I've been very lucky to find a job I love, working with some pretty great people.

And I'm querying again, so I'm extremely busy refreshing my email every five seconds. It's all about priorities. ;)

So between the house, work, the kids (you'd think they'd require less of my time as they get older--totally not the case), and the major case of strep throat we've all had for the last week, it's a struggle to find time to write, much less blog, but I'm determined to do better. I'm going to shoot for once a week with at least one Word Tip Wednesday post a month. Feel free to chastise me if I'm slacking. :)

Have a great weekend, everyone!
