Friday Fun

Ahh...nothing like a bit of Calvin and Hobbes to put a smile on your face. It snowed this morning on the way to work and it would have been the perfect day to stay home and take a nap on the couch or indulge in a good book. But there's that whole day job...

But, I have a nice five day weekend coming up. My kids don't start school until January 3, so I'll be taking a few days off to spend at home with them. I'm hoping to get in a lot of writing during this break. Well, not actual writing, but I plan to finish up the plotting and do a lot of research. I visited the library yesterday over my lunch hour - lucky me, the library is only a block away from where I work! - and got some great books.

I also am planning
to attend the Pikes Peak Writers Conference this year in Colorado Springs - not too far from where I grew up - and I joined the Pikes Peak Writers group yesterday. I haven't belonged to a writing group for quite awhile, and I'm excited to be part of a community again - especially such a great one! Granted, I doubt I'll make any of the meetings since they're in Colorado, but there are other ways to stay in touch during this global age. :-)
Happy Friday!


  1. Pike's Peak Writers' Conference has a GREAT reputation!

    Oooh, tomorrow, we can compare NATIONAL TREASURE notes.

  2. Hey, maybe I can skip down to the Springs (I live in Denver now, but I lived there from 89-04) and say hi while you're in town :)

  3. Devon - I'll definitely let you know what I think!

    Lisa - That would be awesome!

  4. I need to join (or start) a writers' group. I do like real time ones, though, as I spend a lot of time in front of the pc anyway, but I don't have a lot of real time available as I have to drive everywhere around here. But I shall see.

  5. Congrats on the writers' group. A good critique group is worth its collective weight in gold. I've been in mine for going on ten years, and unless the group disbands or I move away, I'm there to stay.

  6. AWesome! I would love to attend a good writers conference this year. I best start researching!

  7. Oh, I'd LOVE to go to that conference!! Such a pretty area of Colorado! And the conference is supposed to be great too.


I love to hear from you!
