Gratitude Monday: Exhausted and Revitalized

Here I am, the day after a weekend at CWC2016.  What a wonderful writers conference.  I met such good people, and I learned some valuable new tools.  Plus, I learned that I already know a lot, and I have a lot to share.  That is so affirming!

Look, I’m dancing on a bus, thanks to the Twitter stickers I discovered this weekend.  I know.  I am so easily tickled.

Forgive me, if I focus on some of those things, this bright, sunny Monday morning where all things seem possible. And in no particular order:

  • A Loved-One who knows that a clean kitchen is the best aphrodisiac in the world.
  • Cats that entertain whether they are playing or splayed out on the rug in rest.
  • New writer connections: Margo, Ann, Mary, Cameron, Kelly, Eizabeth, Mary, and more.
  • My first GoodReads review. Yay!  Everyday, my novel out there, birthed to the world seems more and more real.
  • Facebook and Twitter “shares” of people reading A Ship of Pearl.  I wonder if I’ll every stop getting the thrill-chills each time someone shares.
  • Yardwork waiting for me.  Yes, I delight in getting my fingers of the keyboard for a few hours.  (I have an owwie on my forefinger from all the typing.  For real.)
  • Yoga with Christine.  She makes me sweat and leaves me centered all at the same time.
  • The WORDPRESS app.  For some reason, yet unknown,my typing is white-on-white. In other words, my words are invisible as I create a post.  Not so on the app.  Whew!  (If you know why, tell me, please.)

Now back to work.  This is the week of the triple deadline:  a monthly newspaper, a weekly newspaper, an ASQ1212 newsletter, and a flute performance on Sunday.  And yes, a Friday Launch Party.

Here’s the details.  I hope I see you there:
