Visit Wordshaker

Quick post today. You know the way my Saturdays work. Pretty much internet-free. Today, I’m spending quality time with Babe. We’re staying in bed late, having big breakfasts, possibly going for a run, or at least a little walk… Annnd we have writing to do. She has songs to work on, and I have TWO stories to write. I have a short stories for a competiton, and a novel for NaNoWrimo. I’m going to go at it for a few hours today, and get huge chunks done. I don’t have much time or energy to really write during the week right now. That’ll soon change, as I get more organized with my new job. I also have a few pieces I want to write for Wordshaker Magazine which is FOR us chicas, BY us chicas. They have weekly themes, and accept submissions for posting on their blog. How great is that?! There’ll be a little post on the theme of “Embarrassing Stories” posted today, and guess who wrote it? Stop looking around. It’s ME! Me, me, me!

You can read more about Wordshaker here. I encourage you to visit often. It’s cool to be able to go to one site, and get to read posts from lots of different people with different viewpoints, opinions, and stories to share.

Also, I have a new little cousin! Kacie was born yesterday. I haven’t met her yet. I just saw a picture her dad posted on Facebook. I don’t like to visit new moms and babies too soon. I’ll definitely call to congratulate, but I’m saving the visit for when I can comfortably hold. Probably in a few weeks. 🙂

How are you spending your Saturday? Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? If you are, what’s your word count?
