Now that I have my blog back in my firm, manly, non-sensitive hands (After my wife Amy's hijacking), it's time to catch up with a little business. Up next I have a bunch of stuff to share about my amazing conference complete with photos. So much, I'll probably steal a page out of Natalie's book at Between Fact and Fiction and do a series of posts.
First of all I wanted to let people know that I'm going to be in Ballard with my dad for the Ultimate Tuesday at Secret Garden Books on the 28th of July. Really excited about this, so any of you Seattle blogosphere pals, I'd love to meet you in person if you get a chance. Also my dad did a pretty cool post about me, that I'm finally now getting around to gratefully sharing. To the right is a drawing he did of me hard at work, or possibly blogging. Notice the mac.
I also had the opportunity to do an interview with Amy Baskin at her awesome kid lit and writer blog, Euphoria. I came within a whisker of meeting Amy in person while I was in Portland, but unfortunately we just couldn't make it happen. Did talk to her on the phone and it's funny when cyberspace personas become real people with voices and faces.
My cyber pal, Angie Ledbetter rewarded me with some blog bling at her hilarious, cool blog, Gumbo Writer. She's from Baton Rouge and if she doesn't make you laugh within two posts, I'll buy you a coffee. And a sense of humor. I'll be doing the official Kreativ Blogger ceremony some day (famous last words) where I nominate my own seven blogs.
Thank you so much Angie. I love your last name. It sounds like you should be a blues guitarist or something. Do you play?
Last thing, check out Holly's alter ego, The Extraordinary Whipped Jones. She also has a new, great SRS revision tip from Janet Lee Carey.
Stay tuned tomorrow for my version of the country mouse visiting the big city. Complete with gang fights, writer brawls, and critique groups. Okay two of those are lies.
