I'm not in the greatest of moods this morning, nor the clearest of mind. It has nothing to do with writing, so no worries. To make a long story short, the sickness that rampaged our place a couple weeks ago is back. With a vengeance. And it took the kids hostage. A weekend of fevers and pick eye. Not my kind of weekend.
What's hardest of all is watching these kids suffer from lingering, non-life threatening eye puffs. I know what will help, but I'm powerless to give the medical goodies because I need a prescription. And the pediatrician I trust with their life (and mine) isn't in until Monday.
It's Monday now. Hopefully we'll reestablish some order in the next few hours. Then we can get back on track!
That's not what this post is about ...
I'll be honest. You guys so totally ROCK! Hopping online this morning and seeing all of your amazing comments and the following love put a great big smile on my face.
Not that kind of smile...but close!
I'm doing my best to keep up with each of you, the campaign, and everything else that needs to go down before this weekend. Why this weekend? I've had my arm twisted by a couple good friends of mine, so I've added The League of Utah Writers Roundup to my schedule. If you plan to go, we should hang out.
I also have some awesome news to share! Darren Hanson, a good friend and trusted critique partner, is in the process of launching a new website that should prove to be an invaluable resource for any author (published or not) who blogs. And I get to moderate with a couple recognizable folks in the blogosphere!
Since they're putting the finishing touches on the site, I'm sworn to secrecy about what the site is and what it does. But I'll tell you one thing. I've looked all over and found nothing quite like this. Get excited! It should be up and running sometime within the next month.
Update: I'm putting the finishing touches on Woven, based on excellent beta reader feedback. When that's done, I'll head to the Roundup conference and cram as much writerly knowledge into my head as I can.
Was your weekend better than mine? Tell us about it.
I'm David, and it's time to wash my hands!
