For weeks I was dreading this week and looking forward to this week. I terrified me, yet I knew it was going to be fun. Four author events, three cities, three nights (saying that totally makes me feel like a rockstar).
I was dreading it only for the fact that I knew it would be exhausting for me. I've been run down anyway the last few weeks, having gone off my vitamin regimen (which I am now back on, I know, my stupid fault), and I've been sleeping like CRAP, yes, with a capital C-R-A-P, for a good couple months at least.
However, the dread was heavily outweighed by the rest. I got to spend time with three amazing writers that I've met before, Kiki Hamilton (The Faerie Ring), Helen Landalf (Flyaway), and Carole Estby Dagg (The Year We Were Famous), PLUS, I got to meet two more writers who are very cool, Kendare Blake (Anna Dressed in Blood), and Kathy McCullough (Don't Expect Magic).
AND I got to connect with writers, readers, teachers and librarians at Third Place Books, Capital High School, Olympia Timberland Library, and Garfield Books.
So, while today I might be run down (as you can see, this blog post is a day late), it was definitely worth it.
Okay, Friday Scribbles:
Random iPod Shuffle Song: Bulls on Parade by Rage Against the Machine
Book of the Week: I started reading the ARC of my friend Danny Marks, Velveteen. So good, so far. :)
Netflix of the Week: Watched a few episodes of How I Met Your Mother last week. That's some funny stuff.
