cool weather writing

I made a couple of updates in red!
H A P P Y   F A L L !

It's been a busy weekend! The highlight was that my son's baseball team had a get together to socialize with new teammates and their families at the Reds game Saturday night - when they clinched the NL Central division championship! Even though I live in Ohio, I'm a Braves fan at heart and a Tiger fan by marriage - but it was awesome to be there for such a big win! Way to go, Reds!

We had three different sports represented this weekend too - a football game, a baseball game, and basketball tryouts. I've barely been home! Ah well. I enjoy being busy!

And now for the writing/blogging news...WBN!

Tomorrow (9/25) kicks off! Miss Snark's biggest annual event - Baker's Dozen Agent Auction! Check it out if you're shopping your MS around!

Christine is having a birthday give away! Go stop by and wish her a happy birthday and you might win the present!

Angie at Notes From the Writing Chair wants to read some short stories and give feedback! She's holding a contest through Oct 31

The Muse Online Writers Conference! You should register because it closes Tues 9/25! or at least check it out! Registration has been extended to 9/30!

So how was your weekend? And do you have a wild hair to write a great short story? Going to the online conference? Have a great week, whatever you're up to!

All those sports - you do sound busy! I worked on edits all weekend. With a lot of guitar practice in between.

Madeline Mora-Summonte said...

I just got back from a week long writing conference and I am both stoked and burned out. But I'll recover and come back better and stronger! (Fingers crossed!) :)

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I believe tomorrow on the auction is just a chance to get feedback on your pitch. The real deal doesn't start until later next month. Tomorrow is optional.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Great batch of news! I'm trying to decide if I should jump in . . or just stick to getting my writing goals done.

BTW - I took on the Meme today and linked back to your blog.

J. A. Bennett said...

busy lady! but it sounds like you're having loads of fun :)

Angela Cothran said...

I want some cold weather. Will you send some my way?

R. Mac Wheeler said...

Thanks for stopping by my place :O)

Emily Sovich said...

Sounds like a busy, fun weekend! And of course, thanks for all the links! :-)

Lynn Proctor said...

glad you had some fall weather--we are having some today :)

LD Masterson said...

Only one game this weekend - my grandson's football game - but we had perfect fall weather for it. This week will be too much "catch-up" and not enough "moving forward".

Christina Lee said...

Hi there! Did I know you were from Ohio, too (or am I not remembering we had this discussion)? I'm near Cleveland!

Sherry Ellis said...

I live in Cincinnati. I'm not exactly a Reds fan (I'm from Cleveland originally), but I'm thrilled that the Reds did so well.

Christine Rains said...

Thanks for the shout-out! :) My weekend highlight was going apple picking at a huge orchard. Makes me wish I knew how to do anything with apples other than wash them and eat them. *LOL*

Annalisa Crawford said...

I'm surprised there was any writing with all that sport going on!

M Pax said...

Sounds like a whirlwind weekend. I worked, and husband and I toured the Lava River cave yesterday. That was fun.

Julie said...

Oh, how fun that you were at the Reds game! I was so excited when they won, I'm very jealous!

Thanks for the reminder about the Muse conference, I had totally forgotten!

Peggy Eddleman said...

It sounds like you are so busy! Best of luck with all the various sports. :)

Brinda said...

I'll have to check out this Baker's dozen auction. Thanks!

Trisha said...

I had a nice relaxing weekend for the most part...and I need more of them! I'm exhausted ;)

Carrie-Anne said...

I got a lot of writing done on my WIP Saturday night and all of Sunday. I'm at over 90,000 words now, with a rough guesstimate of the final total being 150,000-200,000. I know what you mean about being loyal to one team even if you live in another state. The Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins have my heart, even though I haven't lived in Pittsburgh for ages.

I nominated you for an award:

Livia said...

That sounds like a good online writer's conference. I would probably join the conference in the future but not right now. I don't even know how the thing works.

Thanks for the blogosphere news even though I don't hide under a rock in this town! :)

Shannon Lawrence said...

Thank you for passing along the great info! I hadn't heard of the conference before. Will have to look into it, but doubt I have the time I'd need. Maybe next year. Your weekend sounds lovely; glad it was a fun one, and exciting about the Reds game.

Mina Burrows said...

I meant to sigh up for the online conf, but forgot. Thx for reminding me. :)

Jessie Humphries said...

I love sports. I can't wait for my kids to be old enough to participate in some! Btw, I did your meme :) Thanks again.

Sherry Ellis said...

Wanted to answer your comment on my blog - I think books by the banks already happened. Maybe I'm wrong, but I didn't have any plans to go. A lot of my writer friends sold books there last year, and they had a good time. Maybe next time I'll go.

Tara Tyler said...

Samantha May said...

My goodness you're busy!

I like the Braves, mostly because they're about the only team anyone in the south can root for!

I'm a Yankee fan by birth though :)
