Good Monday Morning
Or...takin care of bizniss

Welcome to Monday morning. I hope everyone used their "extra hour" wisely this weekend.

I'm making some changes here at Today the Dragon Wins. First, we're going to stop this Word of the Day program and change to Word of the Week. And because I like alliteration so much, we'll do it on Wednesdays. Nice? But before we make the switch, we have a winner from the October Word of the Day contest that I need to announce (for organizational reasons, we'll be making that announcement tomorrow--I hope). The delay should surprise NO ONE. Criminy, if something in my life was NOT delayed, that would be the surprise.

What else?
OH! Why, of course! I'm the featured author over at Author Island today. I'm not entirely clear on what all that means, but I know I've volunteered to give away a book as a prize and I'm in the Author Spotlight on the Author Island blog. How cool is that? DeNita, the hostess of all of the above, is posting something nice about me at the blog and I'll jog over there with something later. I have the afternoon off from work because my radiation treatments start today (what's that? they were supposed to start last month? yes, but they were delayed) and today's appointment is supposed to be more involved than the rest so...I figured time off from work to deal with that was necessary.

All this to say check back tomorrow for the contest winners (there were two contests last month!) and check back Wednesday for Word of the Week and check back Thursday for another "web appearance" check back. It's always a joy to hear from you!

Hey, Sandy!

Prayers are already on the way. I've been writing my NaNoWriMo novel and wrote my personal best last night...8,305 words!! I couldn't start on Nov. 1 because we had a Halloween party to go to.

Have a great day, and don't worry about delays. They happen all the time. Like John Lennon sang, "Life happens when you're making other plans."

Laura :)

I've got your name in the Duran Duran tour cap, too.
If you're a dragon fan, you should join the Dragon Discussions group I have on my Book Place page. I've got a link to it on the AuthorIslandAuthorNews blog this afternoon, but here it is for any and all to copy and paste:

I only post a discussion once a week because, let's face it, we're all swamped.

And welcome...

Every time something gets delayed these days, I just think of Marlin telling Dori, "you're one of those fish that causes delays."
Very cute.
Nice word count! Go Laura!

Hi Sandy!

Wow! Sounds like you already have a TON of stuff going on and now you are also Author Island's Author of the Week! Congrats!

I love learning about new (to me) authors so will be delving into your web pages anon (lol).

Best of luck with the radiation treatments. Hope they do what they are supposed to and the delay doesn't set you back too badly.

Here's hoping this comment isn't delayed! I will definitely be "checking back"!
