Saturday was the chapter meeting. It was really good, I have to say. We got a lot accomplished in the business meeting and our speaker was delightful. We had Rosemary Clement-Moore who talked about writing YA. She’s funny and very lively. Her new book is out, too. Highway To Hell is the third in her series about her spunky heroine who fights evil. If you like paranormal YA, then you should definitely check it out.
After that, we had lunch with Rosemary and chatted and had a really nice time. Then she headed out for her book signing. I went home, and Man picked me up and then we went to the book store. I got there just in time to get her last book! Whew. So now I have in my hand the third book and I can’t wait to start reading it.
Man and I went to dinner after driving around for while. We were going to cook on the grill but it was still a little cold and we were both famished so we ended up at TGI Fridays. I had a nice steak.
Sunday was all about laundry and getting a lot of work done on the chapter biz. I think I spent about six hours at the computer. And that’s six hours solid. I worked on the website and made a lot of updates, the luncheon registration, a new member packet… all sorts of things. It was exhausting.
By the time 10:30 rolled around, I started reading the last two chapters of Phoenix for editing purposes. I think I have all the glaring typos and errors fixed. Now I just need to write the 2-3 more scenes for the book and call it done! I’ve already started sending it out to for critique. I want this book to be super good before I submit it. I’m still shooting for April 1. I think I can make it, too.
This morning I need to take the kiddo to the dentist for a check-up. Plus they’re going to seal his permanent molars. It’s preventative – keeps the cavities away. I’m all for that! I just hope it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Oof.
And then I’m off from work Wednesday-Friday with the kiddo and my nephew. I need to start figuring out some inexpensive entertainment activities. I’m thinking the Botanical Gardens will be a good outside option, provided it doesn’t rain, of course. Plus they can run themselves ragged. haha
Okay that’s it for me. I gotta get ready for the dentist. Happy Monday, ya’ll!
