Back To The Grind

Been working on school stuff for the day. Um, well, I got up about 10:45 so I guess it's only been HALF a day. No writing yet, no reading yet. Some family drama...AGAIN. And surprisingly, no swearing AT ALL TODAY! Aren't you proud of me? And think, I only have another week to pay for any swear words I say or think. I can't wait until it's over and I don't have to watch my mouth so much! Oh yeah, and today I volunteered to be the PRO Liaison for the Kiss of Death chapter of RWA.

While I'm busy getting very little done, here are some plugs for other people:
Elisabeth Naughton, who just recently sold, needs help with a book title.
Nita Wick and a bunch of other authors have a cool contest running through March 17th. The prizes sound fabulous! I've already entered.
Sherry Thomas, whose first book comes out in 10 days, is having a query contest. If you're a writer and you want some help with a query, she's a great person to have in your corner!
Monica McCarty writes AWESOME Scottish historicals. You should check her out. Also, if you're an unpublished writer who needs some help understanding internal & external conflict, I'd say read these books. They've helped me figured out how the conflicts work together and separately and my own newest manuscript is reaping the rewards of this.

That is awesome that you volunteered for your chapter... I keep thinking I should and then I run away, screaming, into the night. LOL I did do the contest coordinator, so I don't feel too guilty!

Are you nuts?? PRO Liaison for KOD -- with pests like *moi* in the membership?? LOL! I'm sure it will be *fine*. Just make sure you make time to write in there somewhere. I had NO idea how time-consuming my own volunteer stint would be. Thank God it's over!

(And congrats on the no-swearing - although I feel compelled to point out that most of those words were perfectly acceptable anglo saxon speak, until the good ole' French came to England in 1066. *;?))
