Celebrate the Small Things 13/9/13

This post is part of VikLit's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up! 

So, what am I celebrating this week?

It's Friday the 13th and right now I'm about 45 minutes from midnight, and so far, nothing tragic or horrific has happened to me.  Unless you count sitting through Saturday Night Fever....  I think I must have blocked out how horribly misogynistic that film is.  I certainly don't remember it being so awful and plotless and just plain bad.  About the only good thing you can say is that John Travolta can dance, and he's not bad to look at...

I made it into the agent round of Pitch Madness which was a huge surprise.  I got a couple of requests out of it too, which has had me smiling for the last couple of days.

I also got resurrected after being voted out of my bout in Write Club.  The nice people voting voted me back in, and then  I won my first round in the playoffs.  Or at least, I think I have.  Voting doesn't close until Sunday, but at the moment I'm ahead.  This makes me all kinds of happy!

My oldest son turns 9 on Sunday, and I realized that's a significant age.  9 is half of 18, and 18 is an adult.  So my little boy is half-way there.  How scary is that?  I still look at him and think he's a baby, yet he's halfway grown....

What are you celebrating this week


  1. 9 is quite scary when you think of it that way. Congratulations with your write club entry :)

  2. Yay for Pitch Madness and requests and your son's birthday! Boo for 70s misogynistic movies with dreadful clothes (the 70s was the most embarrassing decade, even more so than the big hair, shoulder padded 80s).

    1. Oh, but I forgot to mention that the soundtrack for SNF is really good! BeeGees, Trammps, "Fifth of Beethoven," etc ... So it's not a completely bad movie. :-)

  3. Congratulations on making it into the agent round of Pitch Madness, and best of luck :)

    He is halfway there... time sure flies when it comes to our kids huh? Enjoy your weekend ;)

  4. My mom made me watch Saturday Night Fever once. I don't remember much about it. I must have blocked it out.

    Congrats on your resurrection. I hope you win the next round!

  5. Congrats on all the success of the week. I wish my boy was 9 again. He'll be 18 before you know it. Enjoy each moment.

  6. Congrats on getting voted back in to Write Club, and for your pitching success! Have a good weekend :)

  7. It's funny to rewatch those old movies that we loved back then (like Flashdance) and realize how horrible they are! Congrats on your Write Club battle successes and at the conference. How exciting! Writer’s Mark

  8. Lots to be happy about this week. Happy 9th birthday to your boy, the years just whizz don't they?
