I’m late checking in, but it’s because my internet wasn’t working last night. I realized once again how much we depend on internet these days. And I just didn’t feel like dealing with it on my cell phone. I answered comments over the weekend on my phone, but it’s a real pain to do it that way.
The Apple Festival wasn’t a huge success, but it wasn’t bad either. I don’t regret doing it. We sold several of the baskets my best friend had made, and I sold five eggshell ornaments. But I ended up buying some stuff at the festival, too. LOL
On the writing front…. I haven’t written a word since Thursday night. I spent Friday getting ready for the festival, and I spent Saturday and Sunday AT the festival. I came home exhausted. I was two days ahead on word count, and I skipped three days, so I guess I’m about a day behind. No biggie.
Also, I have Starfane all proofed and ready to upload to CreateSpace for the print version.
I’ll catch up this week!

I usually do spur of the moment posts. It’s usually something that triggers a thought and I want to talk about it. So I usually don’t schedule blogs ahead of time. But I’m doing that tonight. Why? Because, tomorrow (it will be today when you read this), I’m going to have a booth in our local Apple Festival. This is going to be a really tough thing for me because, in addition to my eggshell ornaments, I’ll be trying to sell the last of the baskets woven by my best friend who passed away on May 1 of this year. This will be the first time I’ve ever done this festival without her. She lived about 500 miles away, but she always came down for this, and we always had so much fun. This year, another of my best friends (and cover artist), Anya Kelleye will be there with me. She’s always helped us set up the booth and so many other things, but this year she’s staying there with me. I don’t think I could do it if she wasn’t there. So everyone send me nice thoughts while I’m at the festival and pray that I don’t cry.
So I didn’t write last night. There was a lot to get done, and I decided I didn’t have enough eggshell ornaments done, so I had to work on more of those. And I needed to get to bed early since I had to be at the booth at 7:00 AM. Wish me lots of sales!
