A Weekend Away

Entrance to the Writer’s Colony at Diary Hollow in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

It’s been a while since I last blogged, and I’m sooo sorry, guys! Other than sharing things from the Rabid Rainbow Ferret Society, I think my last actual post here was back at the end of NaNo. Oops.

I just haven’t had the mental energy to do so, and the one time I did (sometime back in February), Mr. Loper startled me and I accidentally deleted my entire post and WordPress autosave hadn’t caught the most recent part, which was a significant portion of the post I just… couldn’t find it in my brain again.

Right now, though, I’m not at home. I’m in Eureka Springs, taking advantage of a huge opportunity I got through the Oklahoma Women Bloggers group. I’ll be blogging more in full about that later, but let’s just say that I get to spend the weekend with four other lovely ladies (three of them are also Oklahoma Women Bloggers) at the Writer’s Colony at Dairy Hollow.

So far, it’s been very productive. I’ve finished reading through my A-Zs of Worldbuilding manuscript, and am now going back and doing the revisions and edits that I noted on the computer. This is hopefully my second-to-last draft. I’m planning to send out a newsletter in the next few days, so if you want to be an advance/beta reader for this thing, go sign up (if you’re not already on the list.)

Tomorrow, I’ll be tackling Catalyst. Because it’s about dang time I finished those revisions. Sadly, all I’ll probably get done is reading some (hopefully most or ALL) of my manuscript over again, because I haven’t touched the thing in at least a year. Oops.

Hope you all in the blogging realm (my dear readers, whether you blog or not) are doing well! Let me know what’s up with life in the comments!

      I’m hoping I can just hang on to this motivation once I get home again. I finished most of my spring cleaning right before I left, though, so that should help some. Less reasons to find for procrastination, lol.

    One of these days I need to catch up with the Oklahoma Women Bloggers and actually go to one of the functions. I’m such hermit and with a toddler I can’t bring myself to talk myself into it. Haha 🙂 How are your chickens doing?

      OKWB hasn’t really had any official functions for a while. The Writer’s Colony thing was a sponsorship thing, basically. And it was so awesome, and I’m so glad I got the opportunity.

      Chickens are doing okay! I still have 4 extra roosters, and somehow I have to find the time/energy/will to slaughter soon. I’m getting so tired of messing with them.

          Somewhat. The extra roos are not really pets. They’re all hormonal little monsters right now. But they all have curled toes, and all but one of the four are mixed breed, so not good enough quality to sell except for someone else who would slaughter them, and at that point I might as well eat them.

            Aww I am sorry. 🙁 My in-laws have chickens but we mainly have them for eggs. I don’t know much about them so I didn’t know about the toe curling being a problem and such.

            It’ll mostly be an issue for anyone who wants to breed them. It could have been caused by something as simple as inconsistent incubation (because ‘momma’ hen was an idiot), or it could be a genetic issue. There’s just no way to know.
