Things That Make Me Happy

I've been sick for the last week so I decided to post some things that cheer me up. (Really at this point, the thing that makes me happiest is being able to breathe somewhat!)

First up:

Seeing my fave writer/bloggers acheive their goals. And today is a big one!

Shannon got an agent! Read about it on her blog!

Second:

I'm going to BEA!! Woohoo! NYC, free books and meeting my CP Lacey in person! Does it get better than that?

Third:

My latest musical obsession. This song:



The Ladder - by Andrew Belle

My favorite lyric doesn't actually appear in this video, so I'll quote it for you:

Woe is me
Sentimental you and faithful me
I will be the one to gaze on you discreetly.


What I love most about this song is that about a week ago I had an experience that inspired an idea for a screenplay and a few days later I discovered this song, which is essentially the theme of my story idea with just the right amount of joy and heartbreak. It so perfectly fits the tone of my idea that I feel like it's a sign from the universe. Now if I could just find the time to write it!

Hope you're feeling better and I'm so jealous you and Lacey get to meet in person - how fun! Are you doing the Script Frenzy thing this month? I thought of you when I saw it. :)

I was going to do Script Frenzy. Not sure if I will have the time now. But seriously, after nano, I feel like I could write a script in like 3 hours! So maybe!

That's awesome news for Shannon!!! I needed a little inspiration today.
Feel better:(

Don't you love stepping back and taking a look at the things that make you happy?
And I'll be at BEA, too! So excited!

I think the only way BEA could be better is if Kristi could come too. Maybe next year!
I saw Shannon's post this morning. SO happy for her!
I hope you feel better!

That's so great to meet your crit partner! I hope I get to meet mine one day too. I'm also going to a conference - it's so fun! You'll have to let us know what you learned.
