A Catching Up Post...

Hopefully you've missed me, dear readers. My blog has been quiet for a bit as I was home in bed for a week taking Vicodin and watching Law & Order reruns with frozen edamame in my pants. And one should not post in that state.

But I'm back at work now, almost all better and pretty much caught up on my work. Now to catch you up...

  • My birthday was a week ago Wednesday, but I rescheduled it due to the situation described above. (So if you asked me, I'll tell you I'm still 41.) I've decided it will officially occur on March 20th, at which time I will be in New York to catch the end of the NYC Teen Author Festival. Click here for the event schedule posted on the readergirlz blog. There's all kinds of stuff going on all over the city, including the World's Biggest Book Signing in the World! at Books of Wonder (where they also sell cupcakes). Look for tweets from me during the events and a post or two when I get back.
  • This weekend is our first WD Editors' Intensive of 2010. If you can't make it to this one, mark your calendar for September 11-12 when we'll be offering another weekend of information and critiquing featuring yours truly as well as a raft of other awesome WD editors.
That's it for now. I'm off to do some interviewing, editing and WRITING (all my favorite fun work stuff).

Alice, I missed your posts! Glad you're better. I had edamame in my pants, too. But for a different reason.

Totally missed you. Even began to take it personal, then quickly reminded myself that paranoia is not attractive (and you would be one of the first people I know who would remind me).

So sorry about your injury. I hope you are well on the way to a full recovery.

Happy belated Birthday, fellow Pisces. I am sorry to hear you were under the weather and in need of Vicodin. Never fun. Hope you're right as rain now.
Ms. Springer's book looks really interesting. thanks for the head's up!
