This was my lunch on Friday.
I know, I know...so bad! But I've had a lot on this week, and chocolate is my Boyfriend. Ha!
Everything happens end of November. Christmas prep, finishing off projects before summer holidays, and if you live in Australia, end of school year.
You know what this means: teacher gifts, concerts, gingerbread houses, finding yet another dress to wear. Plus I was decorating the school hall with a fabulous friend for the Year 6 Graduation Dinner (high school starts in Year 7 in Australia).
Just generally overcommitting. You??
On top of this craziness, I signed up for a Literary Speed Dating event. That's why I had a chocolate lunch. Someone opened a Max Brenner right across from the conference centre, so what was I supposed to do?
You might be curious about Literary Speed Dating. It was my first time. You rush into a conference room and get in the publisher's queue. You have 3 minutes to pitch. A bell rings and you get a YES (send it to me) or a HMMMM...THANKS FOR COMING! LOVE YOUR DRESS!
I was a little nervous, but it went well.
Amidst all the hustle, I got a text from one of the Heart Girls, my forever writing friends. She's very funny and her books are hilarious. I was rabbiting on about parties in December and how we should all just relax and breathe...and she sent this:
So true :)
Happy end-of-November, everyone!
