Wednesday Walkabout... Well, November Is Pretty Much Shot

It's Wednesday. Let's go walkabout.

(I'm bringing a long a few of my mates as I wander through the vast wilderness of the publishing industry, learning the ins and outs, and having a grand adventure.)

Walkabout, Week 10:

Apparently having a little notice about major life changes is an outdated idea. Monday afternoon my husband got a new job. Out of state. Our house goes on the market next week. In other words, we have one week to get our house all fancified so it'll sell in a less-than-ideal housing market. Of course, the hardest part won't be getting it ready, but keeping it clean with small children who are intent on uncleaning it.


I had originally planned to participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month--held every November in which writers commit to writing the first draft of a 50,000-ish word novel in the month of November). Yea. Not gonna happen.

Things seem to happen that way, don't they? Even changes we're excited about and happy about come out of nowhere and catch us off guard.

So, wish me luck! And throw another shrimp on the barbie. (Sorry, that's all the Aussie slang I can come up with in a pinch.)

Don't forget I Need Friends Friday.
These week's interview will surprise you... I guarantee it!

Congratulations on the new job. Adventure is what keeps life from getting boring.

Good luck with the house selling nightmare stuff. I'm just thrilled with what's on the OTHER end: Sarah close to me! Happy dance!

The new job is great news! Good luck with the house-selling process (I do not envy you there). If you move to AZ look me up!

Can I just say one more time how excited I am to be welcoming you to my neck of the woods?
