Random Thoughts From This Week

1. I'm losing my mind. Seriously. I've done several things this week that confirm the fact that I am a total moron sometimes.

2. Two betas liked my book! Woot! Waiting on a few more. I'm loving the feedback I'm getting!

3. I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping. That's right. BOO-YA! :D

4. I started my new book while waiting for my betas to get back to me. It was going to be a dystopian, but I decided to do a contemporary fantasy instead. It's very different. And I love it.

5. I've made three batches of cookies in the past 2 weeks. Pretty sure I need to start exercising again. Yep. Really sure. I'm starting next week. Goal: Lose 15 Pounds. Ugh. It sounds so daunting. Maybe I'll make another batch of cookies to prepare myself...

Also, Peggy Eddleman just nabbed an agent! Woot!! *throws confetti* Head over to her blog to congratulate her!

And David Powers King just passed 400 followers on his awesome blog. Go enter the amazing contest he's having!

Have a great weekend everyone! :D

You're done Christmas shopping? YOU GO GIRL! I've started my lists, but I usually wait until Black Friday to start. Yes, I'm one of those crazy people.
Also, congrats on getting good feedback! It's good to know you're on track.

Randomness is awsomeness, especially in the case of this blog post. Really great sharing some humor and some bloggy/writer love.

Congrats to Peggy and YAY for David. May the awesomeness just keep going like the Energizer bunny :-)

And already done Christmas shopping? Oy, I haven't even made a list yet. Better get on the ball lol!!!

Christmas!!!!? My daughter's birthday is in 3 weeks and I don't even have that gift purchased. My dad's at my house today, his birthday tomorrow...no gift...yet! LOL

You're on it! Have a great weekend!

Angela Cothran said...

I'll take cookies over exercise any day! Love your Friday posts :)

Jessie Humphries said...

SO much exciting things to share. Peggy, David, your book....the COOKIES! I totally made a batch last night to celebrate for Pegs and ate 5! Oh boy...

Cynthia Lee said...

Now I'm thinking about home-baked cookies . . .

Kathryn said...

Cookies and Christmas shopping?? You totally skipped November! :)

Sarah Pearson said...

Almost finished Christmas shopping? Want to start mine for me? And 15 lbs, bah! I just stared my diet last Tuesday and I have a lot more than that to lose :-)

elizabethreinhardt said...

You seriously need to send some organization and cookies this way! (And WOOT for Peggy!!!)

Angie Sandro said...

Nice, I'm in awe of your skills.

Jennifer Groepl said...

Good for you! I'm feeling really behind the Christmas power curve now. :P Mmmm Cookies. I couldn't do dieting and cookies simultaneously. If there are cookies, I will eat them. All of them. It's a problem.

Glad your betas are giving such good feedback. That's gotta feel good! :)

Peggy Eddleman said...

Awww! I was reading through your list and suddenly saw my name! So sweet! I mean that's as sweet as three batches of cookies in two weeks! Sadly, I haven't made any during that time. I might have to remedy that.

And holy cow on the Christmas shopping! You're amazing.

And have I mentioned how pretty your blog is? I might have to stare at it for a few more minutes.

Mel Fowler said...

You are a cookie addict like me. I make them all of the time and I love to eat them all warm and gooey and delicious. Yup cookie addict.

Iain said...

Good news about the Betas, and the start of the new one. Sounds like you are excited about it.
And how great is Peggy's news? Gives us all hope doesn't it?

anonymeet said...

Great news on the betas!!!!!!

I, too, have had a dessert-extrvagant few weeks. Love the Jewish holidays, but whew! Sweets!

I just started exercising. Pilates and aerial silks.

My abs hurt so bad today I'm afair I'll cry if I sneeze.

Join me in my misery!

Katy said...

I can't believe you're nearly done Christmas shopping! JEALOUS! And enjoy those cookies... baking burns a few calories, right? I say you've earned them!

Candice said...

You finished your Christmas shopping...in October?? My disorganized brain may have just imploded.

Nicole said...

Congrats on the great feedback and progress on a new WIP! That's so exciting! I'm jealous of your Christmas shopping prowess and your cookies. :)

Chantele Sedgwick said...

Jolene Perry said...

A new workout routine should always be celebrated with cookies.

Maggie said...

Good luck on the exercise. I have serious slacked off since moving...a month ago. And I can't believe you're done with Christmas. That is awesome!
