Last Chance to enter my Kick-off Fiesta is today! Easy peasy contest . . . just go leave a comment on that post. You don’t want to miss your chance to win some Willy Wonka chocolate which might hold a Golden Ticket! Entries end tonight, Wednesday, May 12 at midnight EDT.
So in other news, I have been inaugurated into the blogging world with my first award. Woo hoo! Lydia Kang gave me the Beautiful Blogger Award. Go check out her blog. She’s a lot of fun, and she does a Medical Monday where she describes bizarre medical disorders (she’s also a doctor). One of my favorite features!
And I was also tagged by Laurel to answer some questions. So here goes:
Where were you five years ago?
-Living in Kansas City where my husband had just finished his first year of medical school.
-One child (and I thought THAT was hard!)
-Attending my first SCBWI conference and getting my first manuscript critique from an editor (Let’s just say that I haven’t touched that ms since then).
-Joining my first critique group.
Where would you like to be in five years?
-Living closer to family with my husband OUT of residency and fellowships.
-Agented, published, and able to spend more time on writing.
What is on your to-do list today?
-Write this blog.
-Pick up my oldest from kindergarten.
-Take care of two cuties.
-Edit my almost-ready WIP.
-Critique some chapters for my critique group.
What snacks do you enjoy?
-Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Cream Pies
-And wait, did I say cereal?
What five things would you do if you were a billionaire?
-Pay off student loans.
-Buy a house.
-Start a scholarship fund for my kids and extended family.
-Start a publishing company.
-Spend some time traveling and doing charitable work abroad.
-Boy, there’s too many things to list, but I’d love to do payback within the writing community.
So just looking at my crazy days . . . what would you do with a full day to yourself? And since we’re most of us writers, let’s assume we’re NOT going to write. I think I’d go for a long walk. Maybe go visit some museums. Find a partner to play some tennis. Go shopping!
