Well, today is my Friday (because I have a LONG WEEKEND!!) so I’m going to Celebrate the Small Things today!
Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly post (usually occuring on Fridays). Hosted by Lexa Cain, L.G. Keltner of Writing Off the Edge, and Tonja Drecker of Kidbits, this is a time when we all take a moment to celebrate something good from our week. It can be small, it can be big, just something to look back on the week and celebrate!
The long weekend is a huge celebration for me — I have PLANS! Plans that include things like “drink wine and eat cheese,” and “write, write, edit, write.” Of course, as is always the case when I make such plans, there are people inviting me out to do things, so I have to decide how much I’m going to cut into my writing and “me” time. Really not complaining — it’s pretty cool to live somewhere that I have enough friends around that spontaneous plans can be made and I have options for socializing.
I’d celebrate my Feminist Friday post going up this week! It’s the second post on this particular topic (gender and books) that I’ve written, and I have a feeling I’ll be writing more on it in the future.
I’m celebrating the fact that I’ve started to get more contributions from people for Passionate Geeks! I have a good line-up shaping up, and look forward to getting even more. If I start getting enough people contributing I might expand it to more than just once a month. Maybe just a pipe-dream but, a fun one to have!
And I’m celebrating the coming month. July is going to be busy busy busy for me. I have a friend from Maine coming to visit at the end of the month, and a cousin and her family coming mid-month. I’m running another Taliana event mid-month. I have a preaching gig towards the end of the month and I’m trying to finish the first revision/rewrite/edit of my novel so I can get it to my very first level of readers by the start of August (my “is this worth the effort? and where are my MAJOR holes?” group). Phew!
But I’m feeling good about all of it, excited and looking forward to it all — so it is worth a celebration!
What are you celebrating this week?
