This cat may look completely angelic, but she's an escape artist. And she is supposed to be an indoor cat. Not because I'm mean, but because I've lost a furry friend to the outside before. Not fun. So the kitten lurks and lunges and leaps for the door whenever it opens. And I track her down whenever she escapes.
Superman, my middle child (in orange above), was the resident escape artist before the kitten. We were always on high alert. One Saturday I got a call from a neighbor at 6 am. She explained that Superman had walked (in pjs, no shoes) through the snow to her house. She was happy to let him hang out and watch TV for as long as I wished. I have the best neighbors.
And sometimes it is good to escape.
In case you want to escape your ms/chores/job, whatever real stuff you have on the burner, here are some excellent posts:
Erin Bow's Anti Advice at Shrinking Violet Promotions.
A book about INBOUND MARKETING, and thoughtful video.
First Page Shooter--an AWESOME blog series where two great agents dissect first pages.
I am heading to the NESCBWI conference this Friday. I had planned on just going up Saturday, but my fabulous husband took off Friday so I could go to the conference for TWO WHOLE DAYS. I'm thrilled. I've never been to two days of a conference before. I'm trying to decide whether to put myself out there Friday after the introductory stuff wraps up, you know, and be social.
Or whether I should escape to my hotel room, and write.
What do you guys think? Especially those who have gone up (and been social) on Friday. What happens Friday night?
What links and posts have you been escaping to recently? (Feel free to include your own!)
Because it does. :)
