So I’m super ridiculously excited about the good: This weekend, I’m going to the…HIGHLIGHTS WHOLE NOVEL WORKSHOP!!!!
But the bad is, it’s in Pennsylvania. Why does it have to be Pennsylvania? (Nothing personal against Pennsylvania. It’s just so…oh, what’s the word? STINKIN’ FAR FROM GEORGIA–which yes, is way more than one word. But fear will make one lose the ability to count.)
But wait! What’s really GOOD is that I’ll be whipping that novel of mine into shape with the help of an amazing editor (who happens to be Martha Mihalick from Greenwillow who just happens to have the EXACT SAME WordPress template as Cathy C. Hall. I mean, how weird is that?). And, there will also be all kinds of other extremely talented writers and such helping me as well. Wheeee!
And what could possibly be bad about that, you ask? Well, I have to get on a PLANE because all of these people are in freakin’ PENNSYLVANIA!!!!!!
I really, really do not like to fly. Really. Especially without the Beneficent Mr. Hall there to say, “Cathy! You’re being crazy. Now calm DOWN before they kick us all off the plane.”
But I know that once I get there it will be all super fantastically, awesomely GOOD!!!!! Unless I’m so fearfully bad that the pilot tries to kick me off the plane. And that, my friends, could get epically ugly.
(See you in a week! )
P.S. Is it just me or is The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly one of the all-time best spaghetti westerns that coincidentally has the most awesome title ever to work into a blog post? And aren’t you hearing that opening music now?
