Ready to Go!

My weekend started off with chocolates awaiting me when I got home. Thanks Emma! And that set the uplifting tone of my weekend.

We had our annual book festival and I attended both days. I didn't get to take any master's classes, but I did attend a number of the talks. Including, 'She Said, He Said', the Jenny Crusie and Bob Mayer talk (they are hilarious, by the way, for those of you who might not have guessed). And I attended a talk about the Tennessee Williams Festival set to take place later this month in New Orleans.

Saturday night, we had hubby's awards ceremony. Where he won a gold statue or 'first place' award for a cover design he did and a silver award or 'second place' award for another layout he did. His gold entry will now go on to national ad competition! My formal wear worked out just fine. Although I'm still working on the weight thing. No more doctor's lectures for me!

Today I spent time at 'Hoots, Writing Humor' and 'More Than Romance' with Laura Durham, Jennifer Crusie, and Gwen Hunter. They all provided insight and entertainment.

Now I've come home, ready to go on my writing. A completely different place from last Wednesday!

How did your weekend go?

I can't believe we went to the same two classes and totally missed each other!

It sounds like louds of fun! Fun to meet new people. Fun to get new ideas and fun to be sitting back and relaxing. Run with the emotion and write lots!
