Celebrate: I Been Bad & Giveaways (Mine too!)

I Been Bad

This week I'm celebrating:
1)  Playing hooky from my writing.  I completed one new chapter but hit a stumbling block on the next one.  I came up with a solution the following day, but by then ... I just didn't feel like writing.  That's right!  I just plain didn't FEEL like it.  So there!
2)  Since I felt guilty about doing nothing, I read and reviewed two books for author friends. :) 
3)  I also decided to put one of my stories for free this week and made promo ads for it for FB & Twitter. And then I realized I was using any image other than the cover because I hated the cover.  (And I'm the one who made it.  Go figure.)
4)  So now I'm celebrating making a new cover for "The Inter-Galactic Gourmet" (see it on the right sidebar!) and uploading it to Smashwords, GR, FB, Twitter, and all the little places my book covers go.  This is one of the awesome perks of self-publishing.  Any time you want to change something -- YOU CAN!

Do you sometimes play hooky from writing or other responsibilities?
