Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website, PlantingDandelions.com

And this shall be a sign unto you...

021
...that I've been writing on deadline this week: all our meals have been consumed from the finest plastic tubs.

And by this ye shall know...

024

...deadline met.

I just turned in a 2,600 word article. In the past week, I've written an introduction for somebody's book, a synopsis for my own possible book, a marketing presentation for a website, some guest posts, and a whole bunch of other stuff I don't even remember. Put a quarter in my mouth and a thousand words, double-spaced, come out.

And I've been home without kids since school started on Monday. Apparently, nature really does abhor a vacuum.

What the hell are you even TALKING about?! Cold brew and mac-and-cheese would be my top pick for my final meal if I ever have to be executed. Adopt me?

I became addicted to your blog just as these deadlines cropped up. I'm glad you're back. It's given me a chance to go through the archives, though - utterly fantastic!

Woo! Congratulations.

On choosing an excellent beer to celebrate I mean, of course.

Wicked insomnia tonight/this morning produced three things:

1) An outline for a possible book
2) A new blog post inspired by said book outline
3) A chance to catch up on a few of my favorite blogs, including this one and that other one you pointed me to earlier this week. (He really needs to write more. I'd read that DAILY.)

So you're going to let me design your book cover, right?

I'm glad you met your deadline, but I can assure you, that is a meal fit for a Queen (In my world)

Great job!

Well, I have one that just started Kindergarten and a 3 year old at home and I've done less than ever before. I have run errands though because, hey, it is easier with one kid than 2.

I wanted to "drop by" to let your writing-inclined readers know about a writing contest:
At the thenovelette.com, you can enter theme-based contests so you can get recognition (and win prizes!) for your own writing. Winners are chosen by website readers and professional writers.
You can win a $25 gift certificate in two categories if you submit a 500-750 word piece of fiction or nonfiction at thenovelette.com. The current contest ends on August 30.

you are an inspiration. I can't wait to hear where that 2600 word article is going to appear. Or the good news about the book proposal!
