Getting Back in the Groove

         Here's what has happened in the last week:


  • I forgot to include a picture for the next week's Back-of-the-Book Blurb Friday, but I'm including it now. (Scroll down to the end of the post.) Of course that means that the dozens of writers who participate now only a few days to ponder their blurb, instead of an entire week. 
  • I did not finish my WIP by the end of June (like I planned on) but I am hopeful praying that it will happen this week. And I came up with a marvelous decent better title than was originally stuck on it. (The WWWP Critique Society. That was what I originally slapped on this pile of papers. Doesn't that sound like a confusing snoozer?) 
  • I finally used one of those digital random-izers scrawled names on scraps of paper, closed my eyes and picked on so the winner of a copy of Fevre Dream could be ascertained... and the winner is 
Cathy C. Hall.

  • I finished my Dexter binge-watching (very disappointing from the fifth season on) and am now onto Downton Abbey. (I know. They don't go together at all.) I finished Augusten Burroughs' latest (a great read). I get to work on a project tonight that involves drawing/zentangling. Hip hip hooray!
       Hopefully next week I will be fully back on track. But I wouldn't put money on it... (And please come back on Friday.)


This is the cover for your next fake book.
Think about it between now and Friday.
For some of you, this guy might look too close for comfort...

  3. If you haven't watched "The Killing" on Netflix I highly recommend it. The acting is fantastic. Only four seasons, but gosh, it was so good!

    1. I am. And if you're working on perfecting your pitch next Tuesday, I'll see you there as well. (I usually thrown nothing but foul balls, so I need lots of help.)
