Still not here, AASL & NaNo

I feel like I should have a sound file of crickets chirping for when this page loads since I haven't been around in a while.  I promise to get back to regular blogging... I just have this issue of my deadline to contend with first.  What's funny is that I have a ton of blogs in my head - it's what I tend to think about when I fall asleep at night.  If only I could direct wire my brain to my laptop...

I had a fantastic time in NYC an amazing series of school visits with my local library system, a very happy (though damp) Halloween and I just need to upload pics so I can share them.  I promise... soon!

I'm super excited about this week because it's the AASL Pit Stop in my hometown (at the Charlotte Convention Center) and I'll be signing at table 10 from 12:45-2:15 and then will be signings at the Follett Library Resources Booth from 3:30-4:30.  But this also means that a TON of friends are coming to town and I'm just stoked to see them all!

It's also the beginning of NaNo - yay!  I'm not officially entering because I already have a WIP but I'll still be churning out words with the rest of you.  I have a special fondness for NaNo since that's when I started writing The Forest of Hands and Teeth back in 2006.

Speaking of NaNo and writing... I have much of that to do today so I must get back to it.  Happy writing all!

Loved AASL and the Pit Stop. I signed at Table 8, and had a great time. The Exploritorium was the most fun, however. One photo showed up in the Daily Advocate, and I'm hoping to find others.

About a week ago I was handed The Forest of Hands and Teeth by a friend.

I loved it, and had no idea it was part of a series... so finding that out has just been added bonus.

I'm following you, excited to see what you're up to next! :)
