It's been a quiet week in these parts with Lisa on vaca and me trying to hold down the fort. Here are all the things I've failed to do...

  • Read THE LIES THAT BIND from start to finish (er...middle) and incorporate first round of beta edits. Oops.
  • Log into Twitter. The sound on my youtube was broken so I had to delete all temporary Internet files/passwords/etc. When I went to Twitter, it asked me for username and password. I tried a few and then gave up. Blerg.
  • Think. I was supposed to think through some sticky plot points. It just didn't happen. Wah.
  • Finish IMAGINARY GIRLS (which is completely creeptastic, BTW) to pass along to Lisa. How do people find time to read books? Ugh.
  • Sleep. Despite my extremely non-productive week, I still managed to sneak into bed past 12:30 every night. There is seriously something wrong with me. Ugh again (because I can't think of anything else).
  • But perhaps the biggest FAIL of all is my new upgrade of Yahoo Mail. I was bamboozled into clicking the upgrade link and now they literally will NOT let you switch back (I asked). I hate my new mail. %#!*(&!
A few small victories that should be noted...
  • I blogged. I wouldn't say exceptionally well, but I blogged.
  • I cleaned my floors. Felt like a new woman afterward, too.
  • Made some WriteOnCon planning headway. Let's just say the other planners ROCK. Hard. And let's just say that we're excited. We've got some tricks up our sleeve this year.*
  • Sent some stuff at the post office. This should take up at least three bullet points because of how much I hate going.
So...happy Friday, everyone. I, for one, am thrilled that my other half will be returning Monday. This lone writer business is hard work. And I didn't even have to write.

*Stay tuned for a BIG announcement Monday. It's going to be EPIC.

I love big announcements. But I hate going to the post office. I've considered sliding my postal carrier a weekly $20 and asking him to deliver and mail all my stuff for me.

Do not worry, L. Some weeks we win, some we lose.

See, you just did all the hard stuff and forgot to do the fun stuff. Sounds productive to me. You should feel great about yourself!

That's what you get for using Yahoo. It's completely craptastic and I haven't checked my dump account there for months. Actually it might even be a year now.

Excited for big announcement and WriteOnCon, wooooo.

Hardygirl said...

I can't log onto twitter either--unless I'm on my computer (which "remembers" me). It's ridiculous. Why can't everyone just use Facebook???

Excited about WriteOnCon!! Thanks for all your work!

I can't wait to read your epic news!

I "upgraded" my Yahoo mail too. I wish they would just stop upgrading already! I hate it every time. I am getting used to it now though.

Dara said...

Yeah...I have failed nearly every day in trying to get chores done. I've got neverending piles of laundry thanks to the newborn :P And every time I try to do something, little man decides to cry because he wants attention. LOL.

And I'm trying desperately to get back into blogging. It's been hard.

Anyway I am looking forward to the epic announcement.

I hate going to the post office too. Ugh. I always put it off or get hubby to do it for me.

Jemi Fraser said...

I try to avoid the post office as much as humanly possible too. *shudder*

Looking forward to Monday's announcement!

Marsha Sigman said...

I'm not even sure where the post office is.

I salute you. So glad it's Friday!!

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
