Dear Marathon: You're in two days. 48 freakin' hours. I think I'm going to bite the pavement and die a slow, embarrassing death. My butt cheeks and I should probably just surrender now. Thankfully a few of my favorite ladies are going to be chuggin' along with me.

Dear Daylight Savings: Not a fan.You make me want to sleep forever, something I already struggle with. Driving home in the dark on the San Antonio highways is like defying death every day.

Dear NanoWrimo: Ouch. Writing a book is more difficult than wiggling into my skinny jeans these days. My word count is embarrassingly low. Like lower than my math score on the ACT.

Dear Grahm: Thanks for nixing one of my female character's names this week. Harper Collins. Didn't even occur to me why that's a terrible idea. I like Harper. And Collins is your middle name. Brilliant, I thought! I did NOT think about the huge-mongo publishing company until you laughed in my face when I told you her name.

Happy weekend, everyone!

Please don't ever stop being funny, because RR cracks my shit up daily. :) Good luck with the marathon! My booty and I would've surrendered before training even started. #runningamilewouldkillme

HAAAA!! Love Harper Collins as a character. Maybe it'd make your book more likely to get picked up by a publisher later? All that potential subliminal messenging/free advertising on their behalf...they'd be crazy not to publish you! Boo on Grahm for ruining the fun!

haha Harper Collins!!! It really IS a great name. ;) And you and me both have the same sleep struggles, girlfriend. I find that coffee helps immensely, if you're into that sort of thing.

Good luck with the marathon! I love the whole "Harper Collins" character. I worked for a publishing house and attended the Book Expo America trade show and Harper Collins had an entire isle in the Jacob Javitts Convention Center in NYC. So, maybe it was innocent, but now it would be a totally awesome play on words kind of thing! DO IT!! Have a great weekend!!

Either way GOOD LUCK!!

Good luck! i'm running the Color Me Rad 5k...well, walking it I think is more likely, so I am WAY impressed.

Rachel said...

Harper Collins???!!! That's hilarious--the minute you wrote the name I thought of the publishers. Probably not the most genius character name ever...but we all have those moments!

love your blog! i always get so excited when i find a fellow san antonio blogger! and oh my gosh, it so relieving to hear that another individual believes that the traffic has gotten worse since the time change...i've NO idea why, but you best believe i'm praying to jesus when i buckle up at 5 o'clock to battle those crazies on the highway.
