Spring Cleaning the Veranda

It's spring! Trees are budding, flowers are blooming, tornadoes are looming, and I'm making some changes. I'm switching my blog days to Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I'll start this change tomorrow.

Wanting to look fit and trim for the summer? Me, too! As many of you know, I've embarked on a lifestyle change called Operation Skinny for NYC. You can read about it here and here. I'll be posting about my "lifestyle change" journey every Fridays. If you want to join in the fun, come visit the veranda on Fridays and let me know how you're doing.

I'm also blogging for Petit Fours and Hot Tamales on Fridays so I'll give you a link to one of my infamous confessions--stay tuned for Confessions of A Wannabe Techno Geek and Confessions of Teenage Drama Queen's Mother. I am working up those blogs for PFHT this week.

Need a little inspiration? I do, too! I'll be blogging about how I stay focused and on task throughout the month. And I'll also be sharing Debut Authors with you on Break out the Bubbly and Dark Chocolate. Lots of my friends are debuting their first novels this year. I can't wait to celebrate with all of them.

The RWA National Conference is in New York City this year, so I think I need to get my travelogues out and start planning my trip. An occasional blog about shopping for fun clothes for the event might pop up as well. And I hope that some of my Golden Heart and Rita Finaling friends pop in and say hello to us.

Want to read some other fun blogs? I'll be sharing some of my favorites with you on Mondays. Some of them might surprise you.

What are your spring plans? Making any changes to your blogs, your houses, your gardens, and your wardrobes?

I look forward to what you have to share, I always find such interesting things when I stop by.

Of course, I want to always celebrate the successes!

Speaking of Spring cleaning...I have got to start on that...*sigh*

Glad you like the changes, M.V. I am looking forward to the next few months.

I'm sort of in blog break mode these days. Lots of real life to catch up on, grass mowing and what-not. But I plan on changing my blog around too in the next little while.

Did you survive that storm last night? We only had a little rain, although I battened down the hatches waiting for the tornadoes. Greenesboro got hit hard.

Hi Anne: I'm uber busy as well, but catching up on the blog world. I hope my new format will help me stay focused. I did get blasted by the storms yesterday. A tornado just south of us (joy not)--massive flooding rains and thunder/lightening that was freaky. But we survived.

I have got to finish my R&R--the rest of the story. I have approached it so many ways--now I'm going back to my "barf and fix it later" method just to get the words down. After all, it's a completely different story now :-)

Happy Writing!
