This was me yesterday afternoon. We announced the National Readers Choice Award finalists on Friday and I had to update the OKRWA website. Yeah. For as easy as WordPress is, sometimes I can’t see the forest for the trees. After spending way more time than I’d allotted, and discovering I’d drained the pot of coffee, Lawyer Guy was glad he’d gone into his office to work. I’d mellowed out by the time he got home.
I also had OKRWA chapter meeting on Saturday. It was fun. The morning was spent in a brainstorming session and after lunch, Professor Nathan Brown, a writing teacher and poet from OU, presented a program on what the reader needs to know. It was enlightening!
I’m STILL reading contest entries, though I took a break to read a book that finaled in the NRCA Historical category–Moriah Densley’s debut novel, SONG FOR SOPHIA. Her hero is an autistic savant and I was very curious about how she handled this. I really, REALLY enjoyed the book. Don’t let the book description throw you. It doesn’t do the book justice.
I’m also under a hard deadline for a project. I have to have it finished and turned in by April 25. Luckily, it’s not a very long piece, but I’m behind. No blog hopping or Facebooking until I’m done.
How about y’all? Did you have a good weekend? Read anything worth mentioning or seen a good movie or TV show? Feel free to talk among yourselves while I’m dragging along through the project. Oh! I almost forgot! I’m visiting Kat Henry Doran today. Claire Vitale, my heroine from BEST LAID PLANS is being interviewed on the WILD WILD WOMEN blog. 😉 Stop by and say hi!
