Cold Weather, You're Drunk. Go Home.

Bonus points for you if you get the Mortal Kombat reference:)

Hi, All, 
I have been super busy with the planning of the Hot MAMA Land Fly Hat Society Luncheon, writing, and traveling to visit with book clubs and readers, and the year is just kicking off. I hope things are going well in your neck of the woods.

We're buckling down for some crazy weather. Don't worry, I'm a writer, so I tend to hermit anyhow. This weather pattern has very little effect on me. 

Today's weather in North Carolina , at least in my area, calls for six inches of snow. This means two things:
A). There isn't a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk to be had at any price.
B). EVERYTHING is shut down.

My son is out of school today and tomorrow, and possibly the next day. The whole thing kind of tickles me. Yesterday it was 65 degrees, and today it's going to snow. Gotta love that NC weather- one day chicken, next day feathers. 

We spent two winters in Alaska, so this "winter storm" seems more like a dusting by comparison. Still, I know my Southern neighbors aren't accustomed to snow, so it's probably safer if we stay home with our milk and bread, huddled around the television for breaking weather reports. By the way, I still don't know what the milk and bread thing is all about. My husbands' theory: emergency french toast. Hmmm. He may be on to something.

So, as the cold air and flurries set in, I am hunkered down with the family. I plan to spend the time editing and writing, to catch up on things, since I have a massive list of releases this year. What's the weather like where you are, and how will you be passing the time? I'd love to hear about it in the comments.

Have you grabbed your tickets to the luncheon? If not, what in the heck are you waiting for? Click on the link in the sidebar and it'll take you right to the page. Easy peesy.

Also, be sure to check out my latest release, Write the Damn Book! if you're interested in writing a book. I'm giving you the straight dirt. No fluff, no sugar coating, and just the basics. It even has some nifty exercises to get you started. You can pick up your PDF copy by clicking on the cover image.

Until Next Time,
