Snow Day Update

Thanks for all the sympathy in the comments today.  The worst of it is, it really is beautiful outside. And it could always be worse. My power could go out and I could be trapped the entire day in a hotel room with a toddler refusing to nap. OH, WAIT!!!


Did I resort to putting the still pajama'ed lad on his monkey leash and letting him run laps around the fourth floor of the Embassy Suites?  Yes.  Yes, I did.




On the bright side, I will get some writing done this weekend, and the very nice Austin SCBWI RA said he'd send us our critiques and conference packet with submission guidelines.  A Nathan Bransfordless bright spot, but I'll take what I can get at this point.

  1. Dude, you don't have to change the blogfest! I'm just going to do it late. My blog announcement will go up that day, that's all. (I tried to email you, but couldn't find your email on your profile...) :)

  2. Oh, Karen...I'm so sorry you are snowed in. I can't imagine the disappointment. Having the opportunity to have a critique or pitch session with Nathan would be wonderful. I'm glad you have electricity...at least you can write.

  4. I'm so sorry you're missing your conference. I love Nathan's blog.

    We don't have snow days where I live because we don't get snow. We've had an unusual amount of rain lately though.

  5. I'm just thankful we didn't get too much ice. There is NOTHING fun about ice.

  10. Karen, I have been snowed in with the SICKNESS. Talk about a double whammy. Only I wasn't able to get any writing done because of the...well better left unsaid. I hope you got your writing done anyway.

    And we kept our power with thirteen inches of snow on the ground. How cool is that. I imagine the shape I would have been in if we had no power. UGH and double UGH. =) Thanks for showing me the bright side.

  12. I'm sorry to hear you're missing your conference. Bummer. Hopefully you'll get a great critique. I went to my first local conference last year and the critique was the best part of all!

    Followed you over from Frankie's. :)
