It's been an eventful week. I submitted my story for the IWSG Anthology Contest. It gives me a sense of accomplishment to put my work out there. If anyone is interested in entering and hasn't yet done so, you have until November 1st!
I am now focusing on the edits for my Christmas novella Self-Help 101 or: How I Learned to Take Over the World Through Tolerating My Family. I think the remaining edits should be fairly minor, so I'm not worried. I'll soon be announcing a cover reveal for that one, so keep an eye out. I'm also planning on doing a Christmas-themed blog tour, but I'll talk more about that soon.
I did have some bad luck this week. My laptop broke on Monday. Not cool. The computer itself works well, but something seems to have come loose where the power cord plugs in. I don't know any of the technical terms for what happened exactly, but I can tell you this much. It lost the ability to charge, which means after the battery runs down, the functional laptop becomes a nice paperweight. My sister-in-law was nice enough to lend me her laptop so I wouldn't fall behind on my writing, so I owe her big time for that. Then, Wednesday night, my husband fiddled with it and got it to work using electrical tape, and he told me that if it stops working again, I should tip the computer on its side. I got a good laugh picturing myself sitting at an angle to make that work. The good news is that hubby says he knows someone who should be able to fix it properly. Fingers crossed. One way or another, I won't let computer issues stop me from getting things done.
What would you like to celebrate?
