No Bongos Here, Baby!

At least, not yet.  Some of you will remember that super cutie Robert J. Duperre called me up one day and said, “I challenge you!” If you don’t remember, check his wild-n-crazy challenge out here.  The deadline was April 1st.  And?  Well?  Where are the bongos?  The bad dancing? The crystals pasted to my forehead, or even better, his?

Sometimes life gets in the way, and something has to give.  You know what never gives?  Family. You know what sometimes has to be shelved? Writing, just for a little bit.  Robby was horribly ill, and we were dealing with pnemonia and fevers of 105 at my house.  While growing my children’s spines, might I add.  I asked Robby D if we could push the deadline back.  He graciously agreed.  Kudos to a man who doesn’t win just for the sake of winning.  This boy likes the fight.

He’s added more onto his plate in order to complete his goal. So have I.  I already finished the contests and am working on the essay. Now I’d like to, ideally, have the whole thing revised by the end of the month.  This while starting another project.  Think I can do it?  Gosh, I hope so. I’m realizing that I need to wipe everything out as much as I can before the babelets arrive.  There won’t be a whole heck of a lot of sleep then.  😛

Want to see what Robby D. has to say on the matter?  He blogs about it here.  Also, his second book in The Rift series is out!  Pick up your copy of Dead of Winter! I can’t wait to tear into mine. 🙂

  1. Glad to hear that Robert J. Duperre was kind enough to push the deadline back some. Good luck with your writing tasks. I wish you well. I know you can do this. Just keep believing in yourself.



  2. Sadie, in fairness it was me that wrote you saying, “next time we do this, how about we have a longer deadline.” So I planted the seed.

    It’s all part of my master plan!
