Ketchup (no, no. Catch-up)

Yes, once a month is a PERFECTLY reasonable blogging schedule. Why do you ask?

(If you ever want to know what I'm up to, by the way, I'm on twitter all blooming day, many days, chattering like a maniac.)

Anyway. Much has gone on since I last typed in this box:

--TWO trips to Oregon. The first was for the fabulous second annual KT Literary retreat (see pics here!), which was my first time meeting other lovely KT clients. You guys: they all rock. It was a small sampling, but I can't wait to meet more. It was a bit rainy in Portland (shock), but we got in lots of wandering and book-browsing and chatting and eating yummies.

--The second was last weekend, a work-ish trip to go see our football team play their last regular game of the season. We'd won 8 in a row, practically unheard of for our team, so we were hoping to finish it out strong and celebrate in the other team's stadium. Not so much...we got crushed. *sigh* Still was mildly fun. And we're still in the playoffs, starting this weekend!

--I finished a book.

*secret smile*

Okay, not REALLY. I finished a DRAFT of a book, an extremely short, extraordinarily rough draft. But still, it's all in one piece so I can attack it and make it better now. Starting today! I meant to dive right in the next day, but the last trip intervened, and today's the first day I can. So I WILL. *looks at draft* *is only a little scared, mostly excited* *and scared* *a little*

Hope all is well with you, lovely peoples. Are you ready for Thanksgiving? Christmas?

Hahahahahahahahaha. Yeah. Me either.

Congrats on the draft! Between all the traveling you've done, you knocked that out super fast.

Once-a-month is the new daily, so yay you! Cutting edge, baby.

Congrats on the draft. Happy revising!

Going on an agency retreat sounds like so much fun! Glad you got to attend.

Good luck with the holidays!

Congrats on finishing your draft, bb! Very proud of you. =)

Also, do you ever stay home? Geez. ;)

Don't remind me about Thanksgiving. Or Christmas. No big Thanksgiving plans as parents are overseas and in-laws are going to MO, and our kitchen countertops get installed next Wednesday. I think we're just going to do takeout for Thanksgiving. Ha.

I read your interview on a book and a latte and had to come over and say hi.

Fun post, sounds like you're up to all kinds of awesome. Hope the book tackling is going well!
