A Few of My Favorite Things...

Sunday I had the honor of spending time with two of the original "Glitter Girls" and writing muses (Kristin & Mary). We managed to pound out a few thousand words each all the while celebrating Mary's "early" birthday. In honor of the birthday girl, I got to make some of my favorite cupcakes ever...Pumpkin! I think they were a hit since Kristin "I hate Pumpkin cupcakes" downed a whole cake. I need another birthday to celebrate soon as I am DYING to try out my new Key Lime cupcake recipe! Any volunteers?

We were graced with visits from two guest writers - an absent "Glitter Girl," Nicole, joined us via text (tried Skype, but it wouldn't connect) to have a word war and Jamee dropped by to share in the cupcake devouring (along with the ever beautiful half-pint Juliette!)

I'm positive we got more eating and socializing done than writing, but that's part of the fun. We don't have "writing groups" to sit and write without speaking. And even though we gabbed too much, I got more writing done that I have since our NANO weekend in November. Now that we have planned to meet, eat & write at least once a month, I might just finish my novel!!
