What are you looking forward to?








Michelle Helliwell says I'm looking forward to finishing my edits on SW and getting back to my WIP!! Hmmmm - this is actually a very thought provoking question.

Kelly Boyce says I look very serious in that picture. I must be thinking 'hurry up and snap it, the chocolate finally arrived!!'

Jehara says Having just seen Get Him to the Greek, I really want to read Booky Wook. I am a new fan of Russell Brand.

First, let me say I love Russell Brand and didn't know he had a memoir out. Must go find it - therefore, looking forward to that.

Second, I'm loving your Writer's Weekend Retreat story of Scorpius' backstory - so, I'm looking forward to that.

Third, looking forward to the day I don't have to clock in for the Day Job - unfortunately, I have no idea when that will be. Not soon enough...

K, back to the Day Job!

What a great list Julia - what a great idea! Right now I'm just looking forward to Friday the 18th, somewhere around 3pm. But I'm also looking forward to finishing my edits on SW and getting back to my WIP!!! Hmmmm - this is actually a very thought provoking question!

I'm looking forward to the writers' reteat too - hope to get some serious work done on Nate Munroe's story before then. But I need to finish my children's novel first! Summer...weekends at the cottage, long evenings on the deck. Summertime and the livin' is easy!

Ooo, ooo, #7! Wait, you don't know yet? You're as bad as I am with Suzie.

Lots of good stuff to anticipate. I'm looking forward to finishing my current wip too. Happy TT!

I don't have showtime so it will be a while before I get to see the third season of True Blood.

I'm glad I read this blog today. It reminded me of a few things I need to put on my calendar and on my list. And now back to the blog I was really looking for. /:o)

Great stuff to look forward to! I'm with you on the next season of True Blood. And I could use a scenic, peaceful Writer's Retreat myself ...

We have the last 3 episodes from True Blood season 2 to watch, so looking forward to that. And Harry Potter too.
