So here’s a mash-up of last week’s BEA conference and my chicken coop. (The chickens were bored by all the details of the terrific awards luncheon, but you might enjoy it.) For some reason the annotations on the video aren’t working right in LJ, so if you want to read them, go straight to my Youtube channel.
I forgot to pout this morning because I got so caught up in my research! ARGH! Bad self! Bad self!
But then I read a bunch of blogs where everyone wrote all glowy about BEA. Now my lower lip is jutting out again, creating, as my grandfather used to point out, the perfect perch for a bird to land on.
(This made me afraid of birds for a long time. It did not cure my pouting. Thanks, Grandpa.)
This is fun! If you have a chance, scroll through yesterday’s comments. Be sure to chime today, telling me how you are pouting because somehow your invitation and plane tickets to BEA got lost in the mail.
We’ll have us a good old communal pout and then write another book.
Here is something to make the wretched, hungry hoards at the Javits Center envious:
Cup of coffee in my favorite mug and homemade blueberry muffin!!!
What are you NOT eating at the Javits Center or hotel for breakfast?
To help us all improve our writing (since we’re stuck at home, we might as well use the time wisely) LJ-user mainecharacter passed along a great writing quiz.
What quiz questions about the life of a writer would you add?
This morning I shall both pout and research. This afternoon is filled with family responsibilities; good thing they are used to seeing me pout.
This weekend I am pretending to be at a Q & A panel at BEA. (Delusional? No. It’s a gift for fiction.)
Pretend you are in the audience. What questions do you want to ask? I shall answer!!
