#Derby, #AmWriting, and Name My Book Character

Another fantastic weekend!  On Friday, hubby and I attended our youngest son’s last concert of the semester.  Saturday, we were guests at a rainy, but fun-filled Derby party, and Sunday, we spent part of the day with the oldest son before he traveled to his new apartment and job out of state.  Both sons were at the Derby party, so that made it even better.  By Sunday afternoon, I could have easily keeled over for a nap, but the to-do list wasn’t getting checked off on its own.

I’ll be away from Wi-Fi for most of the week – traveling to the oldest son’s new apartment to get him settled, and no internet until Friday.  I’ll try to get to comments and other blogs by the weekend – between traveling back home and moving the youngest son out of his dorm.  While I’m at the oldest son’s apartment, he’ll be out of town at a job site, so it’s just me, with no TV or internet for a few days.  Besides getting him unpacked, I plan to get some serious writing done.  It’s almost like a retreat!  Have my book club audio book downloaded and ready for the journey.

The Name My Book Character contest is going well.  This is the first time I’ve tried it, and the response has been wonderful.  Participants have put some real thought into their entries, and it’s going to be a difficult decision.  If you haven’t entered yet, you’ve got until Sunday, May 12th – here’s the link.


Is anyone watching Our Planet on Netflix?  It’s educational, alarming, humorous – and the footage is stunning.  We’re about six episodes in and totally addicted.  Give it a try!

    1. And I really need it, Tori. With all that’s been going on the past couple of weeks, my WIP hasn’t gotten the attention it needs – and I’m committed to giving to my beta reader by the end of the month. Have a great week!
