So much to do and so little time to do it in and so little money to do it with. I wish I could get to all the writers conferences in our area, let alone in New York and California. I learn so much while I am there, besides meeting all the authors, editors, and agents.

*** Here's a thought I wanted to pass on to my fellow authors:

I've been reading "How to Write Funny," edited by John B. Kachuba, which I highly recommend, and in the book I came across this, written by Robin Hemley:

"Sometimes, too, you find yourself in a situation that starts off serious but becomes absurd. When this happens, take it as a gift and write it down."

Amen! So many times I've tried to remember funny situations to include in my stories, but because I hadn't taken the time to write them down they were lost. So I have started carrying a small journal with me wherever I go. It has helped tremendously.
