I hope everyone had an awesome Halloween weekend! Mine was good. I discovered that when you are a woman, with a man’s wig on your head, and you’re trimming the wig with electric clippers, you know you’ve gone overboard for Halloween. I was Michael Scott of The Office at my office, for a department costume contest. I was actually sort of digging the tie.

Other news of the weekend – I continue to have internet issues which I am battling with CenturyLink about. Don’t you all love paying for services you don’t get? Let’s keep our fingers crossed that it continues working this time. Hmmmm, what else. I saved a lizard from an untimely feline demise. I realized that my two favorite sodas, Coke and Dr. Pepper, create an amazingly delicious concoction when mixed together.

I got a rejection today. Sigh. I wonder at what point I’m going to have a major writers identity crisis meltdown. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time. But, until then, I’m just going to keep enjoying my favorite season. Can’t believe it’s November! I love, love, love the holidays! And I’m definitely thinking about all my new writer friends that are participating in NaNoWriMo. Good luck everyone!

Well fellow writers, that’s all I have for the moment… I’ve got lots of catching up to do on everyone’s blogs since I haven’t had internet for the last five days. Goodnight!


  1. SO sorry about your rejection but keep your chin up and keep trying!

    Would love to see how you Michael Scott-ed up Halloween! I bet that was a great costume!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog! It's nice to meet you.

    Ugh, I hate paying for services I don't get. At my house, weve been having a struggle with our internet provider for the last year. Today, a technician (from a competitor company) came in, disconnected the old service and set up new phonelines, internet and PVR. I've been testing out the service (I met my NaNo goal today!) and I have to say, I'm a little in love already.

    You saved a lizard? That's always good. Though I do love cats.....they are terribly violent. My cat killed a rat and seven babies (in less than an hour) when I let her outside in the summer. I had to take their bodies from her so she didn't keep playing with them. And I was walking her a couple of weeks ago and she managed to kill a bird (on a leash of 3 feet without me noticing until it was too late). She's incredibly cunning. And dangerous to all other wildlife.

    I'm glad you saved an animal from a cat, I'm always too slow.

    I <3 the office. You get a follow just for dressing up as Michael. (Even though the rest of your blog deserves a follow on its own. ;) )

  3. Glad you had a fun Halloween, and the Michael Scott costume sounds awesome. Sorry about the rejection- glad you can keep positive! Hope your internet starts behaving!

  4. Sorry about the rejection and the bad internet connection. Now I'm all paranoid about my CenturyLink, but so far, it seems fine. :looks at the blinking modem lights for the dozenth time: Hurray for the lizard's life you saved. I don't want to think about all the tiny deaths my outdoor cat causes. The baby mouse was bad enough.

  5. Chocolate is good for rejection.. well, it works for me ;)

  6. Michael Scott sounds like a great costume! I want to see pictures!

    Oh, and don't worry about the rejection. It's all part of the process. I got like, 20 of them on the first batch of queries I sent out and that numbed me to the pain a little. The more I read agent blogs and such, the more I realize that a lot of rejections are just chance. Not the right time, not the right agent, etc. You'll find the right agent for you!


I love talking with friends new and old! What's on your mind?
