Okay, lovies, it has been a LONG time since I've done three truths and one lie. And since things happened this week that were sort of big, I figured this would be a good day to do it. For my new followers, the deal with this is easy. I tell you four things about my week. You tell me which one is the lie. If you get it right, then...well, nothing, really, except for good bragging rights and the ability to say, "yeah, I know Christa pretty well."
1. Kids started back at school this week. None of them were ready. And it's very bittersweet for me. But I was able to get a lot done for work, so there's that.
3. My 10yo asked for a Barbie for the first time in seven years. When I asked why she wanted it, she said she wanted to cut and dye her hair and practice giving tattoos. I love this kid.
4. I finally turned GESTAPO in to my agent. Not to be all existential about it, but honestly, if she doesn't like it, I'm trunking that book. Yes, the idea is good, but at this point in revisions (revision 73 for those counting), I can't go back in much more. Sometimes we just need to leave things alone. Accept our flaws and move on to write something that isn't plagued with "first book" syndrome. I'll keep you all posted.
