A to Z Blogger Challenge: Letter Z

ZOOLANDER


Holy smokes, the blogger challenge has come to an end! I don't know about you all, but I had a blast, even though I went a bit incognito toward the end. I love all you crazies who took this challenge on. You've really inspired me!

Now, to close, I'd like to share a quote with you from Hansel in ZOOLANDER, because...well, Z is a hard letter to think up...and some days when I tell people I'm a writer, this is kinda how I feel.

 "I wasn't like every other kid, you know, who dreams about being an astronaut, I was always more interested in what bark was made out of on a tree. Richard Gere's a real hero of mine. Sting. Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that. I care desperately about what I do. Do I know what product I'm selling? No. Do I know what I'm doing today? No. But I'm here, and I'm gonna give it my best shot."
Hansel, ZOOLANDER

As far as getting back to my regular blogging...
I am taking the rest of the week off because I'm leaving for a writer's conference Wednesday. So, for those bloggers going to StoyMakers, I'll see you there. For those who aren't, I'll see you when I see you (which will be next Tuesday on my blog if you want to join me:)

Have a great week!

I watched this movie while I was in labor with my second. Why? Because I KNEW it would make me laugh and forget the pain. It worked.
I can never actually own this movie because it's so darn filthy but it does make me laugh every time.

See you at Storymakers!! :)

Congrats on ending the challenge :) Sorry I didn't get to meet you at Storymakers, for some reason I thought it would be really easy to find people I "know" through blogging ... kind of had no idea the turnout there was going to be so huge!
