San Diego

I'm in San Diego right now at the SDSU Writers Conference. It starts tonight and should be a terrific one. I help with the conference by scheduling all of the appointments for editors and agents. It's fun and I love it when participants talk to me afterwards and tell me that they had a great meeting.

My daughter is coming this year for her first ever conference. She's 15 and has written a novella which is really good. I'm sure she's going to get a billion dollar book deal, appear on Oprah and all that and I will forever be known as Hailey's mom, who writes too. :-) There are worse things, right? :-)

Anyway, I will check in later. Happy Friday.

Where the hell is Erin Grady

Good Lord, has life been busy. Mostly I've been working on the SDSU Writers Conferece and working on my day job AND doing that writing thing. I'm 10k into my 20k for the anthology and liking what I have so far. Stewing on my Ireland story at the same time. Looking forward to getting past this month.

Oh, and reading GH and rita entries. No wonder I'm so busy.

Anyway, I'll try to be more regular and entertaining as soon as I can.

Take care!

Things to do

The list is too long, but I'll do what I can.

  1. Write. I have about 5k of the 20 needed for the Chill of the Night anthology. It's been fun writing.
  2. Redesign my website. It's been too long. I haven't even updated with January contest.
  3. Find a way to fit about 10 more hours in my day
  4. Spend some quality time with my husband and kiddies. (#4 on the list today because they've been #1 for the past month, which is why I'm so behind on everything else)
  5. Send back stuff I ordered for Christmas that was wrong size, color, etc.
  6. Try to get 8 hours of sleep sometime in the not too distant future.

2007--May it bring only the best

I feel very excited about this new year. 2006 was a rough one in so many ways that 2007 has to be better. I was a little blue last night--was invited to a neighborhood party that I really wanted to go to, but my hubbie was sick and I didn't want to leave him alone on New Year's Eve so I stayed home and watched TV with him. Then he fell asleep at 11:45. Yes, 15 minutes before. Sigh. But my girls were here to wish me happy new year and that was a beautiful thing.

The upside is that I feel good this moring--no hangover. Repentent husband made breakfast and cleaned the kitchen. My day is going to be filled with movies, books and writing.

Hope yours is equally wonderful. :-)

Happy New Year!
