Super Special Secret Surprise

After much toil and way too many revisions, Project SS12 is in the mail and on it's way to the contest! *throws confetti* It feels so good to finally be done with it. I have been dying to get back to writing Project V, but wasn't allowed to until SS12 was out of the way. Now it's back to the WIPstone for me!

As for this week's Library Haul, I was engaged elsewhere and unable to make the trek to peruse the stacks, therefore limiting my haul to just holds. The only thing to note is I got my hands on Pandemonium by Chris Wooding and Cassandra Diaz - a youth graphic novel that looked pretty good when I spotted it at B&N last month. I will let you know how it turns out.

Well, I think that's about it...hmm? Super Special Secret Surprise, you say? Oh, that. You'd like to know what it is? Really? I mean, sure it's super special, and a secret, and who doesn't like surprises, but you aren't reading this post just to find out what it is, are you?

Of course you are. (I would be.) So without further ado, the Super Special Secret Surprise I've been hinting about for several months... *drum roll*

I have started a local writing group! It's called Wordsmythes (like "wordsmiths," but British ;), and it's "an exclusive writing club for young ladies of a noveling persuasion." We had our first meeting Saturday afternoon, and I think we'll get along rather well. Together we are four young ladies working in similar genres, at similar stages in our writing, who met through the East Valley Nanowrimo group. Well, actually, I met each of them through the group - before our meeting Saturday they didn't know each other from Eve. But we had a good time getting to know each other, and I foresee some fun and productive meetings ahead of us!

Curious about the group? I already made us a blog! (I do stuff like that. ;) Check it out here: Wordsmythes. Although it won't be up and running officially for a few months, we have some great ideas for it and can't wait to start posting. I definitely recommend giving it a Follow. *nods*
