Second "First": Tonight is my first time on the chopping block with the new crit group. And let me tell you, this group consists of three of my best friends I've made in this blogging community. They are so sweet but honest and will tell me how it is no matter what. Which makes me a tad bit nervous. But at least they think I look pretty when my video freezes every couple seconds.
Third "First": Little Monster and I survived our first 4-day stretch of snow days off from school. Barely. Creepy voices and lipstick stains aside, we had a blast. Although it does make me a little worried about summer vacation...I'm getting used to this whole school thing.
Fourth "First": This is the first time I am in the vicinity of 22 awesome YA authors. They are all secretively holed up in a lodge 30 minutes from me staring at moose heads and stuffed animals. Not of the toy variety. BUT they are doing awesome chats at 8pm eastern every night until the 8th. So I can at least pretend I'm in the same room as them.
Fifth "First": Buffy battled "The First" and won(ish) against it. Okay, she kind of turned her town into a huge sinkhole, and there may be another hellmouth in Ohio. But whatever. She's still awesome.
These have been my "Firsts" lately (okay except the Buffy one- I watched that a long time ago- but I just had to put it. I mean, c'mon...it's Buffy).
What "Firsts" have you experienced recently?
P.S. Go check out Shallee's blog from Life, The Universe and Writing. She's doing an awesome contest for a great cause. For every 5 dollars you donate to help her friends from Ghana go to school, you'll get entered into a contest for a critique of your first chapter from an agent!
P.P.S. AND this is my first time making it to 200 followers! Thank you so much you guys- you totally rock. Like, if I could come through that screen and kiss you, I would. But I won't because, well, we can't do that.... yet. Anyway. Thanks for reading my drivel and actually caring to follow. Love you, and you, and you, and you over there Mr Lurker- I love you too.
