How was my week away?

I spent the week at the Green Lake Christian Writers Conference learning lots, making new friends, renewing old friendships and absorbing the serenity of the conference center. Oh, and I wrote some. 

I give myself a ten out of 17 on the goal-a-meter this week. I wrote one post on my other blog (and cheated coz it was about the same thing I posted here. Oops.), I added to my social networks one time only, I wrote on my novel and other various projects for seven hours and most exciting of all, I talked to a publisher who wants me to send him my memoir. So, I really have been mostly re-editing that the last few days.

I don't know how anybody does it. There just are not enough hours in the day. The house needs to be cleaned, clothes need to be washed, and not only does the dog want to be played with, but the cat does too. I thought that's why we had cats - so we wouldn't have to play with them! I won't even mention the day job. 

Writers Feet, 2012. Note that I have not bared my toes in this one. I took this right after I had a great haiku running through my head and had nothing to write it down on. I thought about writing in the sand along the trail and taking a picture of it. Then it dawned on me  - duh - that I could record myself saying it with my camera. That's something which won't be posted any time soon.


  1. It sounds like you did pretty well on goals, especially after going to a conference.

    Congratulations on the inquiry from the publisher! It sounds exciting. I have my fingers crossed for you on that.

    1. Thanks for the support, Elizabeth. I will certainly keep everyone posted here on how things turn out.

  2. Cool use of technology! Gotta keep looking for new, more productive ways to use those tools.

    I agree with you there's not enough time in the day. But we get what we get, and no one else gets any more. lol.

    Good luck meeting your goals this week!

    1. Thanks for the comment. Sometimes technology is my friend and sometimes it is not. And sometimes we make it more complicated than it is.
