Monday Mentionables: A Timely Article, A Scavenger Hunt, and A Picture to Remind You of Summer...

Sigh. No time to write these days. Barely time to keep up with the dishes, laundry, and all the essays that need to be graded by moi in a timely manner. My YA is beckoning me, waiting for me to finish that 3rd revision, but I'm stuck about 30 pages from the end.

In an interesting sidenote to my YA (which you might recall is a modern-day Lysistrata where the girls of a small-town HS band together and stop dating the boys 'til they stop partying so much)......this article appeared in my local newspaper. Perfect for my cause. Now, do you think I can photocopy it and include it with agent queries? Hmm. Maybe not.

Oh, and in other news, I'm a participating author in the Raven Halloween Hunt, which will run through October and include fantastic prizes by a multitude of authors. It opens October 1st, and I'll have more information about it right here on Friday.

Finally, here's a picture of how I did spend part of my weekend, enjoying the lovely summer weather at a local state park with our exchange student from Norway:

Happy Monday!

Hi Allie,
Cute picture of you and your exchange student! Good luck on all your projects. Your YA sounds wonderful. I read the great article about underage drinking.
