Reading, Working and RWA
Okay this whole working thing is totally interfering with my reading. More importantly it's messing with my ability to keep up with all things RWA. Other than that I got no complaints.
BTW, have you been reading the updates from Jane and Smart Bitches Candy and Sarah? Jane's one liners are just fab-u-lous dah-ling. Of course there is also the occasional post from Kristie and Wendy when they aren't too busy living it up. Color me green...
Crikeys, I can't believe how much stuff they've done and how many authors they've met and what a great time they seem to be having. Man, oh man. Linda Howard! Damn you Jane! Judith McNaught. (Jane again!) Lunch with Lisa Kleypas (see Kristie's post it made me cry). Sybil had a one on one with JR Ward. I'd have loved to be a fly on the wall for that convo.
I used to fantasize about going to the RT or RWA conventions when I was younger and couldn't afford it. Then when I could afford it I didn't want to just take off by myself. What's the point of gushing and acting like a stalking fan girl over your fave authors without somebody to snap the pictures and witness your dorky geek love?
Anyway it seems the stars and planets are finally in alignment because thanks to all the cool chicks I've met online I don't have to go and feel like I'm alone and don't know anybody. Conveniently, the next RWA just happens to be in San Francisco. Woo Hoo! This is a do-able distance since I'll have a limited amount of time off from aforementioned new job. So...who else out there is going to meet me in SF?
As far as the reading goes, well it's a darn good thing it's the weekend. I've been enjoying Jane Graves latest but have been disciplining myself to go to bed and not read. Which means I haven't read a whole book this week. Yeah, I can't believe it either. Since being on time to work is sort of a big deal at the fire department, I haven't pushed my luck by staying up into the wee hours reading. So my reading has suffered terribly this week. Hopefully things will slow down to the normal frantic pace and give me a little breathing room. Maybe I'll get a book or two read over the weekend. One can hope.
