V is for Veritaserum....

I've been dosed!!


In Harry Potter's world - Veritaserum is a potion used to make people tell the truth.  It's root, the Latin word "veritas", means truth.  One small drop of the stuff and you'll spill ALL your secrets!!

And here's my truth for the day:  I am a procrastinator.  :)   What's that?  You already knew this about me?  It's in my blog title?!?  *stops*  *looks up*  Oh, yeah.  Right, right.  I'm the Queen....

Anyhow, my fine friends, I just wanted to tell you all that I'll be pre-planning/scheduling my posts for the rest of the A-Z and that I probably won't be around much until next Monday.  I've got my Pike's Peak conference coming up at the end of the week and the truth is...  I'm miserably unprepared!!  Sometimes I have to sit myself down and say, "Donea!  Focus!"

I'll lurk when I can, but I've just got to focus on my preparation for this weekend.  You'll forgive me, right?  Just this once?  Just know that I'll miss you, you ROCK, and I'll be back soon!!

Happy A-Z'ing, writing, reading, living!

Haha... my boys tell me to Focus all the tiime!! My mind goes in so many directions.. I prefer to think it's because I'm creative! I thing my sons' just think I'm space... cause I'm 'mom' right?! ;-)

Great word choose for 'V' and wish I could use that on some 'dates' over the years. lol Could have saved me some stress. :-)

Good luck at your conference!!
Hug,

Have fun at your conference. I'm jealous. I loved it when I lived in the Springs. Lovely place. We expect reports on what you learn ...

Well, you didn't procrastinate too much if you got all your post scheduled! Have fun at the conference. Bring us back lots of good information.

I preplanned mine for the rest of the week too. It was one less thing for me to procrastinate over ;)

Have fun at the conference.

Hi, all! Thanks so much and ABSOLUTELY!! I just had the conf. schedule e-mailed to me and I have NO idea how I'm going to decide between some of these classes: How to Pitch, Write the Fight, Self-Editing, Look at All that Blood, Crafting Unsympathetic characters, Writing success through the 12 steps. Heck!! Andrea Brown, HERSELF, is teaching a workshop on querying!! I'm so stoked!

I will definitely post a report on all the awesome to share with you! :)
