The Story of a Week

I got almost no writing done this week, but I swear I had really good reasons. (I know, excuses, excuses.)

See, it’s like this.

Monday and Tuesday were dedicated to turning this:


Into this.



I didn’t stay to watch them cut it, but I hear it tasted yummy. 

Then, Wednesday, since I was already in cake-making mode, and because she deserved it for always making incredible cakes for all our critique group book launches, I decided to make this

for my good friend Heather Justesen for her recent launch of Rebound. 
We ate it at critique group. It was yum. Chocolate.

Thursday afternoon I spent some fun time with my sister and my two little nieces and nephew—

during which a tragic drowning accident caused my beloved iPhone to die an untimely death.

There is no picture of that. Too graphic for my audience here.

After a night of mourning (aka uncontrollable sobbing) I paid a visit to this place.

They set me up with this. (In white)


I felt much better about life.

Then Saturday, I did this most of the day. 

Along with a few other important things.

Like this. (The query kind.)


Weekly word count total: around 900 words. 

*big sigh*  

I’ll try again next week.

*This week, instead of posting Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I will be posting Tuesday and Thursday, with a possible post on Wednesday to announce a contest winner.  (Big hint!)

I LOVE the cake and fun chocolate treats you made! I remember your mom (and maybe you helped!) made my wedding cake with curled chocolate. So fun! Way to go!
