Hooray for my critique group!

Because I'm pathetic (and swamped...homeschooling does take up time), I still haven't gotten around to writing my first blog review.

But, I think it's much more exciting to talk about my Spec-Fic critique group's success!  Paul has a beautiful short story up at Yesteryear Fiction - hurry to read it; it's only up for a couple more days.  And Russell's horror novel, Dark Inspiration, is available for pre-order at Amazon.

Ceci n'est pas une "post"

Just wanted to sneak in that I won a little haiku contest on Twitter offered by the good folks at Wild Bird Magazine.  :)  Got me a nifty book called "Cooking With Birds"!

How the heck did I get so busy?

It's a good busy though, mostly: I'm doing a lot of writing and editing/critiquing! I'll be going to the IN-SCBWI's November retreat, and need to get a synopsis done and some pages written (and written reasonably well). This, of course, on top of the regular stuff for my two critique groups.

While we homeschool year-round, we do start up certain things come September. I'm freaking out a little at the thought of running high school chemistry labs with my older son. Plus, nobody told me I had to play counselor in addition to facilitator. Ack!

If you're looking for something a bit more interesting to read than my panicked paragraphs above, you can head over to my regular blog (I say that as though this blog doesn't get enough fiber, or fibre as the Canadian part of me want to write) and read about pasta-making!

Oh, who am I kidding? The three two people who read this blog already read my other blog...so never mind. Carry on until I can finally get to some decent content, like blog-reviews. :)
