Hump Day Happiness

It really was a very good weekend...

I already shared my stickers and my friend Molly's book, so now...the rest of the story.

I know, Paul Harvey I'm not!

So, Saturday, Rita Award winning author Cindy Dees spoke at my writers group. It was an awesome presentation about Big Characters and Big Scenes. Cindy was able to query over 40 editors on what they look for and this was the result. And she's nice and she's funny and she's a member of my chapter. Cindy writes Romantic Suspense for Harlequin.

On top of that, I earned another charm for last month's editing. And as I mentioned yesterday, I had a charm I gave myself for finishing Snowball and submitting it. (No, I still haven't heard back.)

So the horseshoe is from the chapter, the key from myself to go with the lock...

Oh, wait--I've gotten ahead of myself...on Friday, DD was also working on a surprise for me:


While at Barnes & Noble, I found this:

Yes, that's a wand. It's also a pen.

I'm sorry, I just can't help myself. :)

And when I got home DD had yet another surprise waiting for me:

That, my friends, is butter beer. If you're a Harry Potter fan, you'll know what it is. If you're not familiar with the stories, butter beer is a common beverage in the wizarding world. I wasn't keen on it myself as its base is creme soda, which I don't care for. But the thought was sweet.

So what's the sweetest thing someone's done for you lately??

Ah. That is so sweet of her, having that ready for you.

I love the new look and the pics!

Angi Morgan said...

Well... it's not the 22nd, but the sweetest thing so far today has been management shutting down the party next door so I could work.


Love the new charm !
