Celebrate: Too Relaxed? & Giveaways


An egg ...  or meee?! 

I was sleeping very comfortably, somehow not realizing it was Thursday and I'd forgotten to do a Celebrate post. But I accidentally woke up in the wee hours and whipped this off!

I've had a good, relaxed week, and I think I've come up with the character arc I so desperately need for my next novel. (I can't write a character if I have no idea what that character's arc is.)  So yay for me and Paris Underworld! Now I just have to finish Coldest Night ...

Have you ever lost track of what day it was, especially when you have days off work?


Happy Memorial Day!


My kind and wonderful co-hosts of Celebrate the Small Things are:
L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge
Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits Blog
