Where to start?
I've ridden on a river boat, seen some of my extended family as I partook of tasty niblets at a fish fry, heard a cousin's Sunday sermon, and outrun a cold front to Tennessee. Descended deep into a cave, where I saw a beautiful waterfall, and got my jacket all muddy. Saw a 3-year-old girl (not mine) get her first ever (!) ice cream cone. Petted a clawed creature at a Red Lobster in Georgia, and frozen my tukus in Florida (where the aforementioned cold front found us). Gotten too little sleep, eaten too much junk, walked too many miles. I've seen Shamu's bottom, and handfuls of other creatures, including people wearing bikinis when they shouldn't, and asked an Irishman where my husband can buy that accent. I've worn a big floppy sun hat three days in a row, and thrown up in a Denny's bathroom. I met two writing buddies and made a new one, and have dreamed of ways I'll tie any or all of this into my writing.
And we still have three days left.
How's your week been?
I really miss everyone. I hope you're well, and look forward to getting back to the everyday routine. I'll have pictures to share, as well as some new insights, and will also post an interview with author Wendy Burt, who contacted me about her new book, The Writer's Digest Guide to Query Letters (January 2009, Writer's Digest Books).
Stay tuned, bloggy buddies!
