This Little Author Went to Market...

Happy Monday! Well, after a stellar two weeks of sports, the Olympics rocked to a close last night. This morning the city seems quiet, although it could just be that everyone has a mammoth hangover from watching the ceremonies last night.

Although I'm not suffering from a hangover, I admit I'm a little tired from staying up way past my bedtime to see the Games close in a blaze of glory -- and I've used up my last bit of energy churning out my words for the day! I'm nearing the end of the first draft for The Pollyanna Plan, and I'm eager to tie up the loose ends.

So I shall bid you adieu and direct you this way, where I'm at the lovely Laura Howard's blog expounding on all things (okay, some things) social media and marketing-related.

Now off to nap...

Have a great start to the week!

  4. It was such a great evening. I'm really missing sport though! There's a bit of an after-the-party feeling, isn't there? I'm hoping to fill the void with lots of writing. Enjoy your nap.

  5. The Olympics flew by. I can't believe they're over already.

  6. What I got to see of the Olympics was wonderful, but I still think it's kind of expensive for the host country for a two week affair.

    Enjoy your nap!

  22. It's always a bit of a relief when things like the Olympics are over, even though it's kind of sad. Good job on still managing to get your words done! :)

  23. A nap is in order after a fortnight like that!

  24. I caught the last hour of the closing ceremony, but it was one hell of a spectacle! Shall pop on over and say hi!

  25. It's amazing that you're almost finished with your first draft! Happy napping! Julie

  26. Ooooh how exciting, you've almost finished the first draft! Yay!

    It does seem absurdly quiet (all over the country) now that the Olympics are over, doesn't it? x

  27. I didn't mean to stay up to the very end of the closing ceremony. But I did. Was quite tired yesterday.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can imagine how different London must feel after the closing ceremony. Party's over. Back to the real world. What a great time it was.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Pity I have never read any of your book. I really do not know how to order book through Amazon. But I am going to find it out. Otherwise I would end up missing hell a lot of good books....Love your blog....

  30. I still have to watch the last hour of the closing ceremony I was just too tired.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I missed the whole closing ceremony - how lame am I?!

  32. Congratulations on nearly finishing The Polyanna Plan - and on working so diligently even while the Olympics are going on. A lot of writers I know nearly stopped writing altogether when the Olympics started.
