How was your weekend?





I had an unexpected treat last weekend, when I got a last minute opportunity to do a 'Meet the author' event at Bogart's Book Store (210 North High Street Millville, NJ 08332).


Bogarts
I spent Saturday afternoon hanging out with fellow writer, Bobbi Shapiro (aka Antoinette De Poi), who I first met at an NJAN event in Vineland Library last month. Bobbi's husband, Colin, and her publicist/manager, Aaron, were also there, along with a bunch of other friendly folks. We chatted, signed a few books and generally had a grand old time.

Bogart's owner, the lovely Amy Lombardo, was kind of enough to keep some copies of Fur-Face, to sell through the store. She and her staff make everyone feel welcome. I definitely plan to take part in future events there.

I spent most of Sunday catching up on unexciting, but necessary things, though I managed to watch last night's episode of Leverage.

How about you?

Well, I finished a dress,
picked up a couple of chocolate malts,
and tactfully declined the attentions of a man who found me attractive.
That last one put the EEE in eventful.

I had a wonderfully productive weekend since the little one and wifetype were going to the state fair. Trying to get ahead on my serial, so I got 30k words written on the first draft for three chapters, typeset a book for a publisher, and did a bit of reorganization on my movie collection. Plus watched 12 movies and way too much Triple Town and Glitch (the only two online games I play).

What I *should* have done was clean the house. :)

Cleaning the house? What is this strange ritual of which you speak? :)

I clean the house, do dishes, and mow the lawn. I keep trying to convince the wifetype that since they are a stay at home, they should do more and they keep reminding me that walking is a privileged. I married a brutal but lovely spouse. :)

But washing the dish and mowing the lawn also involve a great deal of walking, unless you have a riding mower and a heavy reliance on the appliance known as a dishsmasher (that's what Terror used to call it, when she was little, because of he noises it makes).

There's a weekend? o0;

Actually, mine was pretty good. I received a phone call, and a promise of a visit, from my daughter.

and..... I think I'm almost ready to start writing that story. The worst thing, when you're trying to focus on an opening scene, if only because it's critical to the entire story at this point. It's where I'e ended up knotting the thread. :3

I used to fret over story openings until I realized I almost always change them later anyway, so why worry :)

I finally got 74 words into it. And I'm a Virgo. 'nuff said. Also, I know the way I work. Sometimes, I can get away with jsut writing it off; but considering I have had the story in my head for way too long, and found some key point that can finally tie it together, along with hte recognition that it's a key scene (even if it changes later)... It's that big a deal, for this one. Considering I'm writing it, pretty much blind, since I can't find any apropos research material.

Well that's a fun turn of events!

I thought of you while driving up the Garden STate Parkway on Saturday. When we hit Monmouth, I called out, "Hi, Jon!" like I always do...because I'm strange.

A week at the beach but now it is over. Sigh...I miss the sea.
