I got my face melted off at DFWCon this past weekend. I learned about publishing, writing and blogs. I’ve never written a blog before in my life and now I’m doing it. See? There are actual words on this page. WORDS. PAGE. OOOOO. AHHHHH. I watched in awe as Kristen Lamb, blogger and author extraordinaire, taught our asses off about the do’s and don’ts of, well… everything. That being said, I’m going to suddenly switch gears on you.
I’m not sure who out there is a silent auction fan, but let me tell you this:
The silent auction at DFWCon connected me to Dean, my velvet reindeer who lives in a Christmas wreath. Yes, you read that correctly. He’s amazing. He’s my boyfriend and Dean says “Hello.” This silent auction reminded me of everything that is good about thrift stores…you never know what the heck you’ll find. A moo-moo? Ok. A shiny bowl with a raisin stuck to it? I’ll buy. A record with a naked lady on the cover? Why not. A handmade Christmas wreath with a velvet deer named Dean attached to it? I’M YOURS.
With all that being said, I’d like to invite the question: What has made YOU passionate lately? Being at a convention for writers connected me to many things- new besties, new focus on creativity, and Wow-ness. I want to hear about your Wow-ness. Hit me.
