A blog about writing, being a writer, getting inspired to write, etc. For writers, authors, would-be writers and authors. I only have 2 rules. 1, please keep everything PG rated at most, there are some younger folks who read my blog; and 2, please do not criticize what others have written. I would like this to be a safe haven for folks to explore their writing style and to gain some confidence in their story telling abilities. Nasty comments will be deleted.

OMG! I got distracted
yesterday, with the phone ringing, and texts and messages coming in with RSVPs,
that I forgot to post this. UGH! You’ll be getting two posts in one day.
Hi it’s Christina –
Good Morning! Today’s blog
is going to be short and with no writing challenge again. Sorry, but I have a
very small amount of time this morning.
What do you think?
I was behind on responding
to my email, and I needed to get caught up. In one of those emails was the
opening of sign-ups for July’s Camp NaNoWriMo, so I needed to get that taken
care of; which meant, picking a title, writing a synopsis, making a cover,
determining a word count, and requesting cabin mates. It translated into
roughly two hours of work.
I still need to catch up
on a marketing event I had signed up for, I’m not sure exactly how it works,
but it looked interesting. I’ll tell you more about it tomorrow.
Yesterday was a bust. I
should have stayed in bed (considering I got very
little sleep anyway). I went
to Party City to get the paper products. They had the stuff for my husband’s
party, but nothing for Dani’s party – all I wanted was cake plates for her, but
I couldn’t find them. Then I went to the dollar store, but they did not have
appropriate cake plates either. From there I ran to Candyland, a candy supply
and cake decorating place near us, and got the molds and chocolate for the
favors for Dani’s party. Thankfully, that was a success.
My poor Raspberry bush
My last stop was to Lowe’s
to exchange my poor little raspberry bush. I don’t understand what happened.
Everything else that was planted is doing great, but the raspberry, not so
much. In my defense, it did look a bit sad when I bought it, but it was the
only raspberry bush left, so I took it. It went downhill from there. Forty five
minutes at Lowe’s, chocolate melting in my car, I leave empty handed. They are
out of raspberry bushes and they doubt they will be getting any more. Hot and
frustrated over so much time wasted, I decide to treat myself to a cool drink
from WaWa on my way home. I go to pull into the parking lot only to see WaWa is
closed because they are renovating. UGH. I went home and took a nap.
Oh well, let me run so I
have time to check out the event, and then get ready for work. I hope you have
a great day, and happy writing!
