I’m sorry that I was rather absent last week. I was preparing a short story for a contest and packing for Orlando over the weekend. Heather and I went to Mer-Palooza to represent Minnesota Mermaids. I don’t know if I talked about this before, but Mer-Palooza is a mermaid convention and this was its first year. It was an interesting trip for a variety of reasons. I will have pictures soon, but I haven’t edited them yet, so for now I am presenting the blurry picture above as a sneak peak. On Saturday, Heather put dreads from Diva Dreads
into my hair for the pool party. My mom was disappointed that I don’t have pictures of them in, but I really liked them so I’m sure that there will be some in the future.
Also, I don’t think I’ve mentioned this yet, but I am participating in Camp NaNo again this month. I know, it didn’t go so well in June, but I did get a decent start on a story and that always makes NaNo worth it. I am pretty behind this month because of my trip and the short story that I mentioned earlier. I’m hoping to write close to 15,000 words this week to help make up for it. The good news is that for a week this little guy will be staying with me and will be providing lots of inspiration.
