Celebrating the Past Few Weeks & 10 Things Every Serious Writer Has

Err . . . hi?

So I thought I'd hit you up with some past celebrations, and I'll even go visit you. How nice of me, no? o_0

*Having a blast with the kiddos this summer. So much better when they're a bit older and more independent to run around on their own. Woot!

*I saw Christina Perri in person a couple weeks ago on a date night (which was also nice). For FREE. She was singing at a park ten minutes from home for a radio event. It was cool 'cause I write to some of her songs for both Kinetic and Static, and the third. And two other books. Umm, yeah I like her music, apparently.

*My workouts had gone on vacation for the summer, but I resumed those suckers. Yet again. One thought: Ouch, ouch, ouch. Why can't I commit and stick with it? If only to avoid the initial soreness each time I restart my routine. Sigh.

*I had a FUN time with our very own C. Lee McKenzie last week. I invited her to Coffee Chat to discuss middle age women and young boys, AND to scare the "ahem" out of Lynda. Come check it out! 

*Because this is true, and because #10 was one of my genius thoughts (which doesn't say much about me, but that's not the point):

What are you celebrating?


  1. Crap, I really do have three blogs! (To my credit, two are group blogs.)
    Stay with your exercise routine. You can do it.

  2. Luv'd the list. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Your list is very cute, Katherine! I'm sure you made us all smile.D
    Glad you're having fun this summer.

  4. Good list! I'm guilty of the notebook thing. I have tons, but I never write in them because I have horrible handwriting and it would ruin my pretty notebooks...

  5. Snyopsis' are the worst!!! Enjoy and have fun with the kiddos!

  6. Glad you are having fun with the kiddos. I am struggling with the dreaded synopsis as we speak!
    Enjoy your weekend.

  7. What a great idea. Must have made you smile to dig up past celebrations.

  8. I hate writing a synopsis. I think it's one of the absolute worst parts of writing.

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Sounds like you had a great summer! I find it a lot easier too to do things with the kids when they're older. Hope your workout aches and pains go away quickly! And thanks for the list. So true, particularly #6. Enjoy your weekend!

  10. You saw Christina Perri???? Love her!!!! So. Awesome. And YES to summer. I've loved it too. (More excited for fall though, LOL) :)

    Love the list.

  11. Love this list, and love all the fun things you've gotten to see and do this summer, especially the concert, since it was a last-minute surprise.

    And I think Raymond should pay you for your Ten Pen idea, because not only is it cool, it rhymes. That costs extra.

  12. I totally hear ya on the kiddos being older and more independent thing! My kids are 14 and (almost) 11...and I'm enjoying them being young adults...kinda wishing they would grow up anymore! :)

  13. Lots of good things to celebrate. =D

  14. Sounds like you've been having an awesome summer! Glad to see you around the interwebs again!

  15. Lol! 'So that's why I have all those notebooks :)
    Glad your summer went so well. Sounds like lots of fun.

  16. I wish I could see her :(. Oh well I did get to go to an awesome concert so I could just be happy with that and shut up. lol

    Nice list, but I think since I am not doing or have some of those things...crap maybe I am not a writer...dang it!!!

  17. Marvelous list of celebrations. I'm loving that my little guy is more independent too. Your list is fabulous!!

  18. Stick on with the exercise routine, it will energize you and ignore the ouches. I love the 10 things every serious writer has.

  19. LOL! Those were epic. =) Oh my... I'm all for celebrations. *holds out cheese platter* Let's celebrate in style, eh?

  20. LOL. Love that list, except in my case, I need a lot of pens coz I tend to lose them haha.

  21. Sounds like my summers when the kids were little. All great celebrations.

  22. I like the post format as you create user engagement in the complete article. It seems round up of all published posts. Thanks for gauging the informative posts.
