Okay, so I turned in the Demon King and I on Thursday. Whew! My brain still hurts. I left early Friday morning to go with Parker to the next round of all-state auditions. I know it’s crazy, but I kind of like being a chaparone, except there’s a lot of sitting around and waiting at the competitions. Parker made it to the next round, third chair. He said he totally bombed. From his sightreading scores I believe him. Lucky for him, he had an amazing voice. I promise I’m not the only one who says so. We have soooo many talented kids in that choir. Of the 17 who make it to this round 10 are moving on. How cool is that?
I leave in an hour to go to Albuquerque to do a set visit on Breaking Bad. It’s a new series that’s about a chemistry teacher who finds out he’s dying of lung cancer. He’s broke so he opens a traveling meth lab, so he can leave his family some funds. I know how it sounds, but it’s a cool show. Funny and kind of inspirational in a dark skeezy kind of way. LOL. Skeezy and Inspirational seldom go together but when you see it in Jan. you’ll understand. So, I’m gone till Tuesday.
Then I come back and all my stories are due and then the next day is Thanksgiving. Sigh. My jeans are already tight. (That always happens when I’m finishing a book.) I may have to fast. Ha. Like that’s going to happen.
All of this is my very long way of telling you I’m busy. That’s why I haven’t been around much. But once I get thru Thanksgiving…. I’m going to breathe. I swear I am. :-) I say that knowing that I revisions due to another publisher on Dec. 15, as well as proposals to Berkley that same day. But those are worries for another day.
Tell me what you guys are doing and what your plans are for Thanksgiving…
I’m so grateful my sister-in-law is taking care of everything and she lives just around the corner. On Friday I’ll be at Lonestar Santas. I’ll be out at Grapevine Malls from 7 am to ? I love starting my Christmas holidays this way. Even though I have to get up early.
So tell me your plans!
