On to Book 'Em and the GO AWAY Award!

I'm off today for the Book 'Em Festival.

Friday is a full day of school visits, teaching kids how to design their own character. It's tiring but a lot of fun - some of the kids come up with great characters.

Saturday is the main event and I'm also scheduled to do a talk at 11am. It'll be a blast to catch up with my author friends!

Several of us are getting together for dinner Friday night, including my buddy Trish (p.m. terrell) and Dirk Robinson. (From Scotland! I could listen to Dirk talk for hours.)

And I'm wrapping up my week with The Muse Online Writers Conference. The forum discussion has been fun and informative (I'll post about it next week) but I'm hoping the two events don't coincide again next year. Just a little too much for Spunky to handle!

I also recieved an award from Yvonne at Welcome to my World of Poetry Thanks so much! She is just the sweetest lady.

I'm passing the Go Away! I'm Writing Award to three writers at various stages in the writing process:
Tara McClendon
Creepy Query Girl
Nancy J Parra

And I wrapped up with part II of my professional speaking series at Breakthrough Blogs on Wednesday. Thanks again, Stephen!

I'll be offline until next week, so see you when I return. Weekend Sillies will post as usual though!

I understand about listening Scots talk for hours. I have to admit although it isn't why I fell in love with my husband, it certainly helped get my attention!

All the best.

What a fun award. Thanks for thinking of me. Been a crazy week here, and I'm only dealing with one thing. Have fun helping the kiddos. (You should see if Dirk will do a vlog with you--then we could all hear the lovely accent!)
