Tell The Truth Tuesday: What happens when Shannon's head goes Kaboom

1. Got back from Big Sur and I can officially say it was one of my favorite conferences EVER.

2. It also takes the prize for the most exhausting conference I've ever been to. They aren't joking when they call it boot camp for writers.

3. I came home just in time for WriteOnCon 2011s epic announcement and contests, which soaked up most of my day yesterday. (If you missed the excitement, make sure you head to http://writeoncon.com/ to check it out. We have eight AMAZING prizes we're giving away.)

4. So...sadly, this is me:


5: Which means I'm going to do something I try not to do, and take the rest of the week off blogging. I am SO behind on life and writing and sleep I have to take the time to catch up.

6. I feel really bad doing it, but it has to be done.

7. But I'm REALLY scared you're all going to forget about me in my absence.

8. So I'm going to resort to bribery.

9. I promise I will return on Monday with an awesome contest. Make sure you stop by--you won't want to miss it.

10. I...can't think of a 10th thing. So I'll just say HAVE A GREAT WEEK and loathe myself for pretty much writing the lamest blog post ever. 

See you next week!

  3. We'll miss you. But we will still be here. I would say enjoy your time off, but knowing you you'll just be running yourself ragged anyway ...

  4. I tire, too. My LOLcat would say Needs Moar Coffeeeeeeee.

    Have a great week, and glad you had an awesome time at your conference in Big Sur!! (I'm still sickeningly jealous).

  5. Of course we'll be back.

    "Taking a break from blogging?" I know the code and I agree: Everybody needs time to go off to save the galaxy once in a while. I'll wave as your starship passes overhead and pretend it's just the boring old Space Shuttle.

    May the Force etc.

  14. We won't forget about you. We'll be all cool when you come back like 'oh yeah what's up?' and maybe stare off into space with a bored look on our face but we will be PRETENDING. Because we love you.

    Now get some sleep!

  17. Do it, girl. Get some rest and leave this cyber world behind for a bit. It's good for the soul (and the fam.)

    Meanwhile, I'll be scouring your blog for good MG info since my new WIP is going to be MG.

    Enjoy your break! :)

  29. Big Sur will do that to you! I could barely form a sentence for a full week after I got back from the one I went to in December. Glad you had a great time!
