Saturday Six for July 14th

1. Today I have my monthly S.C.I.F.I. (South Central Indiana Fiction Interface) meeting. Even with this heat, I managed to get all the stories critiqued. I'll be happy to sit in the air-conditioned library for a few hours even if my story gets torn to shreds!

2. A big thank you to L.G. Keltner for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award and Tell Me About Yourself Award. Consider this Saturday Six post as getting to know me!

3. I finished my revisions for Fearless. Funny how I missed some of those spelling errors, and I really need to pay attention to my use of the passive voice while writing fight scenes. Onward to proofreading and formatting!

4. Still no air-conditioning. Blah.

5. My son held up a clear plastic lid in front of his face the other day. He said, "Look, Mommy! An invisible box!"

6. I'm finally catching up on True Blood. It's funny how ten years ago, my TV schedule would have included a few hours of shows for most nights a week. Now, for the summer, I have nothing I watch except True Blood. It feels weird, but I have better things to do with my free time these days like write!

Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you! True Blood is one of those shows that turned out great even though it's different from the books.

  2. Sorry about no AC!
    Yeah, no matter how many times we go over a manuscript, there's still things we miss.

  3. We need to exchange some of your heat for our dreary wet climate here. Your son sounds a cutie. Congrats on all those lovely awards and WIP progress.

  4. I got away from True Blood for a while too - well, I didn't have HBO for a long time. I'm actually liking the program better now than when it first came out, maybe because I haven't read any of the books since book 6 or 7.

    You should try watching The Walking Dead -wait that doesn't start again until October. But Falling Skies has started its new season on Sundays, and its awesome.

    I'm like you with the TV thing though, I watch very little and even when I'm sitting in front of it with a favorite show, I pay more attention to my writing or reading than the show.

    Have a good weekend Christine.

    1. I think True Blood is getting better too. I like the political intrigue. I love the Walking Dead. I've heard a lot of good things about Falling Skies. I've added the first season to my Netflix queue. I usually read a book while watching TV too.

  5. Congrats on finishing Fearless.

    I don't have AC in the whole house, but we have it in the bedroom for those hot nights. Hope you get AC soon.
