Friday and babbling

I'm a bit late posting.  It has been one of those days. I could have easily hid in a closet and not come out until next week. On top of a lost kitty, our sweet baby goat passed into goatie heaven-it was very unexpected.  Realities of country and farm living.  Instead of hiding I just want to thank you for allowing me to come to my happy place!  It's the little things that made the difference today.  I managed a smile reading what my blogger buddies had to say, even snuck in a laugh or two.  Got excited over the way cool newsletter and contest from Elana. Thanks Elana for passing a blogger award to me-I got a big smile from that-you rock! Selfishly felt better that I was not the only one in a funk today-see Lisa and Laura.  May they eat many twizzlers and be in awe at how Edward sparkles like a tiara!

The hubby dosen't read and I am excited to announce he is listening!  Does this count....heck ya!!  I love talking about books I have read, and it could easily be placed in my hobby category.  Now I can bug the heck out of him about what he is reading now-SO FUN!  First up for him is Harry Potter.  Don't worry I already made him a list of what he needs to read, errrr listen to next hahahah (yes my evil laugh came through).  I told him I would record my story so he can "listen."  Anxious for him to have his opinion of it.  It has only been finished for six months now sheesh!

New Story
Really excited about the new story I have been working on.  I'm calling it Dream Realm right now.  It will be another urban fantasy/romance.  Tyson is banned to the Outer Banks as the Gate Keeper.  His gambling addiction has caused a mortal to the brink of insanity.  Will he redeem himself to gain the respect of his family and back to his presige position as Dream Keeper? Hmmm I don't even know yet, lol!

More Randomness
I am still at awe how cool some of these contests are, how supportive some authors are, and the kindness that people show for each other here in bloggerville! It could really help some unpubbed soul out there (Yea I'm raising my hand and grinning).  I read about so much negative aspects of writing, publishing ect.  There are some awesome parts too people!!  Shout out to ya!

Crafty craft for the weekend.....crochet scarfs!  I have not had time for crafts with working on a query letter.  Picked a perfect time to do it though :)  Elana's book is on sale-might be what the doctor ordered!

Oh, you're not the only one in a funk. I swear I'm going to go postal any second. And I don't even really know why. Just one of those things, I guess.

Sorry about your goat. :(
