Friday news flash

I have a busy weekend ahead of me. Writers' group, shopping, a friend's birthday party, and the fall festival. I didn't submit anything to my writers' group to be critiqued this month because I don't have anything new written. Too much time spent revising and critiquing novels.

I finished the second book in The Hunger Games series. It was just as fantastic as the first. Actually, it was better. More intrigue and twists. I can't wait to read the third book!

One of my birthday presents arrived early. I'm now a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA). I had thought the processing would take a while, but they were quick.

Have a great weekend!

  1. Have a good weekend, Christine! Yay for finishing book two of the Hunger Games. My sister keeps telling me to buy books two and three, but I want to have a chance to read book one first. *laughs*

    Yay for the early birthday present!

  4. Cherie, once you finally have the time, you'll love the books. I know you need to get your own books out of your head before Apenth gets really insistent! *LOL*

    TGE, you too! :)

    Alex, thank you for the early birthday wishes. My birthday isn't really until October 5th. So when I said the gift was early, I meant really early!

    M Pax, thank you for the early birthday wishes too. I've been debating for a few years now whether to join RWA. Authors I've met at conventions who are in it say it's totally worth it. I'm just in time for their annual unpublished manuscript contest too. I really want to enter. Now my decision: what do I want to send them?

  8. It makes me feel like a "real" writer to be part of writing organizations. Silly, but true :D
