Are you sure its Monday?

Hi. How are ya?

Good here...for a Monday.

To answer your pressing question...yes, I did write this weekend. Quite a bit, actually.

Sunday turned out to be a writing kind of day. The boys slept in for a while and I was up early (go figure) so, I took full advantage of it. 

Then we went to the husband's softball game and I wrote some more in my notebook. I was quite pleased with my progress.

In other news...I have some info to pass along to you guys.

Saw this blog post the other day from Rachel Aaron. It's worth a read. Even if we were able to use 1/3 of her equation it would be worth it. How I Went From Writing 2,000 Words a Day to 10,000 Words a Day.

Carina Press put out a submissions call on May 18th for any of my romance writer friends. 

In support of mostly myself but also for Angela Ackerman and Becca Puglisi from The Bookshelf Muse I purchased The Emotion Thesaurus.

It's already been a help to me since I downloaded it on Kindle for PC on Friday for only $5.00! 

Excellent writing guide and I found out what all the Random Acts of Kindness Blitz buzz was about at their website.

I have received two lovely blog awards! 

Heather Murphy from Random Interruptions has graced me with the Stylish Blogger Award. If she knew me at all she would realize that I'm far from stylish but it's sweet of her to think I am! Thank you very much for picking me, Heather!

And thanks for having the same name!

Heather's rock! 


And...the one...the only...The TARA TYLER from Tara Tyler Talks...has bestowed upon me The Versatile Blogger Award! 

She not only re-designed The Versatile Blogger and The Kreativ Blogger Award boxes to give them an updated look she wrote a fantastic fantasy story to give them away to her blog buddies! Thank you, Tara! You made my day that much brighter! 

Psst...sometime over the weekend I snuck past 300 followers. Thank you and welcome!
