I'm two oppressed minorites!!

At least according to this...

Massachusetts wants rights for people who are short and fat

I am being spoiled rotten...

As I type this, I am sitting in a fabulous room in the Embassy Suites Hotel in the Seattle area. I'm here to attend a novel workshop which starts this evening and goes through Sunday.

The rooms are HUGE. I have a sitting area and a bedroom all to myself. The furniture is dark wood, very nice. When I got here they called the room to see if everything was okay.

I had breakfast (complimentary with the room). I got a cooked to order omelet with mushrooms, tomatoes, ham, onions and cheese. While there I was asked - again - if everything was okay. The staff is very attentive.

I am feeling very spoiled. When I travel, I usually stay at places like La Quinta or Days Inn, which are decent places more often than not, but not like this.

It's nice for now. I'll enjoy it while I can.

Happy Day after Mother's Day!

Hope your Mother's Day was nice!

Mine was sweet. We went through a drive thru after church and got lunch. Then Don and I watched "Deja Vu" on DVD. (Not the best movie in the world but interesting).

John wrote me an extension of a poem he started two Christmases ago. I got lovely cards from James and Don. And I was permitted to bring forbidden food into the house - a chocolate fudge torte.

All in all, a nice day. :-)

Whoops...forgot to mention...

Sometime the week before last I wrote my 100,000th word for the year 2007.

I now have 23 short stories making the rounds of different publications.

I am still working on a novel I started back in January. Trying to market another novel to publishers.

And a third one will be critiqued by fellow writers later this month.

So far, no new sales or encouraging words. Welcome to the writer's life. :-)
