Kick start Monday - what a weekend!

First off, I have to say, "YAY!!!! BOTH of my younger sons WON their football games! Woo Hoo! It's unheard of!" This football season is better than any other so far and we've only been playing for a couple of weeks =)

Then I have to say, "Whew! That was alotta blogfesting!" Participated in two blogfests and joined a campaign! Looking forward to September and October to see what this Platform-Building Campaign is all about!

Coming up...
MY BLOGAVERSARY BLOGFEST!!! We are planning a nice little gathering and bringing treats to share by way of recipes. Come on over! It's a potluck with prizes =) And it's tomorrow!



Then on September 5, we have our first Campaign event. I'm so curious!


But that's not all! Alex J. Cavanaugh came up with the great idea to host the Insecure Writers Support Group. We all talk about what's bugging us or give each other advice about writing. We will meet on the first Wednesday of each month and the first one is September 7! Go sign up! What could it hurt?


And now I will leave you with my go at Brainstorm & Bylines weekend challenge - to use lost & found in an opening line of a story:

Jessica stared at the door knowing she would either find her answer or lose her mind.
