Mention Monday - Catching Up

First things first, I realized in all of my busy-ness, I forgot something on Friday...I signed up for a blogfest that I should've posted about on Friday, June 29. EEEP! I can't believe I forgot, omg. Oh well, it has gone and I can't do anything about forgetting it. I can however, tell you about it...

I was on a blog that mentioned a blogfest hosted by author Christine Fonseca. On Friday, Christine revealed the cover of her upcoming book, Transcend. I was supposed to write a post revealing something 'secret' about myself. Want to know a secret?

Somewhere in the last few weeks, I've become unfocused. I can't seem to accomplish much of anything. I'm running around crazy trying to get things done-caught up-yet I can't keep focused on my tasks. I'm usually great with my to do lists. These past few weeks though, I haven' been. I'm not sure what it is. I have been struggling to get to sleep at night, so that's probably part of the problem. I'm getting better, but it's still not quite there. Hopefully this week I'll get it together though.

I know that wasn't some huge secret, but oh well. I missed the fest anyway, so...

Anyway, Christine Fonseca revealed her awesome cover last Friday. Go HERE to check it out. And follow her blog and check her out elsewhere as well.

Another thing I haven't gotten to is a couple blog awards.

I'm cheating because I'm not going to follow all the rules. I got the Versatile Blogger Award from Sarah over at The Writer's Experiment. Thank's Sarah! I also got the Stylish Blogger Award from the awesome Cherie (AKA Precy Larkins) over at Ready, Write, Go. Thanks Cherie! Since I'm still really behind, I'm nominating ANYONE who reads this. I had a list in mind, but I just don't have time to link everyone. (Kendra, SC, Utsav, Brighton, Krysten, and Caterina-if y'all are reading this, you've been nominated for both. Need the details? Just ask. :)  ) (And I was thinking of Alex, DL Hammons, and Donna B McNicol for the Stylish Blogger Award-SO if y'all are reading this post, you're nominated. I'm so sorry for not linking to you. I will try to make it over to your blogs and comment to let you know about the award. Which sounds silly since I'm saying 'your blog' to let 'you know', but if you're reading this then you already know...Ah well.)

Now that I feel like I cheated on those awards...

Last, but definitely NOT least, I want to talk about one of the AWESOMEST people I know...

ALI CROSS! Yes, she's awesome. She's so full of awesome that I sometimes wonder if awesome is even a good enough word to refer to all of her awesomeness. She's so wonderful-GO CHECK HER OUT IF YOU HAVEN'T YET! Not yelling btw, just enthusiastic. :D Anyway, she revealed her FANTASTICALLY AWESOME cover of DESOLATE. If you missed it, go HERE. It's fabulous. I love it. And I CAN'T WAIT for the book to come out. If you've never read her first book, BECOME, you need to check it out. And if you don't know who she is, check her out. She's awesome, if you haven't realized yet. :p

So, that's it for now. I'm getting back on track and hopefully I'll be back to my posting schedule and will have some time to visit people. Thanks for stopping by, please check out those that I've mentioned. :)

Happy Monday, Everyone! :D

Happy Monday to you too. I think it's something in the atmosphere, because I've been scattered lately too an can fall asleep easily.

My life has been nothing but chaos either for the past few weeks. Summer vacation is here now, so I'm really hoping life settles a bit and lets me get at more writing! :)

I loved Christine's cover (didn't sign up for the blogfest due to the chaos) - off to check out Ali's... :)

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Happy Monday to you, loved the post.

Em-That makes me feel a little better...Knowing it's not just me. But it still sucks. :/

Jemi-Yeah, I'm hoping something balances out for me too so I can get something done. :)
