Holy Cow, has it really been a MONTH since I posted?!
Unbelievable. So I stayed busy doing this:
Not to mention THIS:
And while I didn’t really think ya’ll would be stagnant
while I was gone, all kinds of good things happened:
Note: New members to the Hacky Sack Club are always
welcome and we DO seem to have some good mojo going. Just saying.
Anyhoo . . . so much good stuff going on for our friends that
Amy and I couldn’t just let it slide. We are holding a Celebration Contest!
And since all good celebrations need ice-cream, we are
having an Ice-Cream Eating Celebration Contest! Woo hoo!
So here’s how it works:
Amy and I are going to battle it out to see who can eat the
most ice-cream in 20 seconds. Too easy, you say? Our 9-year olds are going to
be the ones stuffing the ice-cream in. Still too easy? Another child will hold
our hands behind our backs to keep us from cheating.
And you’ll get to see the whole thing on video!! How cool is
BUT, it gets better. There will be PRIZES!!
All you have to do is guess who will win. Me? (uh,
yeah). Or Amy?
Everyone who guesses right (on either blog) will be entered
into a drawing for your choice of
critique from BOTH Amy and I,
Surprise Package D (gosh I love me a surprise
package). Could be a book. Or two. Or a gift card. Or, who knows? Maybe even A
BRAND NEW HACKY SACK! Heehee.
Just post your guess in a comment before
Sunday, May 12, midnight EDT, and come back next Monday, May 13th,
for the ice-cream eating event! Winners will be posted shortly thereafter.
So go on, take a guess! But just know . . . this is me,
Toughest, Ice-cream eating-est, Brain-freezing-est contestant around! Just

I have known about NaNoWriMo for about 4 years now. And I have never done it.
My mini-writing challenge with Leigh Moore last March told me that I would pretty much stink at it. Like a lot.
Last year at this time, I was just gearing up for some major revisions on my book, and I was fortunate enough to discover a group working on revisions instead of writing. We called our November NaNoReviMo.
Ironically, many of us are in the same boat this year, so we have rebanded. Jessie Humphries is keeping us organized, so if you’re interested in joining, go check out her blog and shoot her an email.
Anyhoo, the point of this post is that we are supposed to publicly announce our revision goals to keep us accountable and junk like that, so here are my revision goals for this month:
- Finish revisions on PB&JF and send them to my agent.
- Finish revisions on my WIP (currently in round 2 of revisions) and send to my beta readers.
- Find a shiny new idea to begin outlining.
I know I should be more specific with daily goals, but since I’m super close on everything but the last one, my daily goal is simply to work on one of these three things. Six days a week. Definitely do-able!
So what are your writing goals this month?
