- Excuse Editor -- I've been working on this website, newsletter, and a thing I call The Scoop (contests and writing markets) quite a bit. I'll also be offering some new writing (ebooks, etc) and teleclasses/workshops in the future. It's quite a bit of work, putting it all together.
- Vacation -- From what, you may ask? Does one Really need an excuse to run away to New Orleans? No, I didn't think so, either. I spent a great 4 days around the French Quarter eating, drinking, and listening to LIFE.
- Writing-- OK, no link for that. I've snuck in some of my own writing here and there, but not as much as I would like. I did get word from Chicken Soup for the Soul that one of my stories is a finalist for a book coming out in the spring, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed! I also received a rejection (or, a "denied" status) for a short story. It may not have been the same caliber as the contest winner, but I still think it has worth, so I will send it out to other markets.
- Facebook--This can be an evil time waster or a valuable resource. I don't play any games or anything like that, but still find myself drawn in. I will learn to only use FB for good, not evil. Wish me luck (and friend me:)

Poor little blog. The new baby blog has taken over all the attention. So for those who are wondering what I've been up to, here's a very brief update.
