I see shoes in your future...

A fortune teller once told me that I'd be surrounded by shoes one day. No, I'm kidding. I've never been to a fortune teller. Well, unless you count the one when I was at my husband's high school reunion. She told me I would have one child and always wish for more. Huh? I already had three. Not very reliable. Okay, so I'm not one to believe in fortune telling, but I do get a kick out of horoscopes. They are typically so off mark that I get a good chuckle. So,when my blogger friend Kathryn Megendie pointed me to a writer's horoscope, I couldn't resist checking it out. I'm so glad I did because I found a website with a wealth of information. It offers all the latest publishing news, as well as writing contests and opportunities, not to mention the horoscope (you know, for entertainment purposes). So, go check out Writer's News Weekly. On another note, my post from yesterday seems to have been slightly misunderstood. I talked about the importance of taking a break from blogging when needed and mentioned that I would be taking a break soon. Judging from the comments, most of you thought I meant I'd be taking a break now. What I meant was next week. But, now that you all mention it, I think I'll start my break tomorrow. After all, my writer horoscope said something about that. :) I'll be around visiting today, but after that, I'll be on a little vacation for a week or so. Hope you all have a good one!

I took a mini-break last week. I needed it:) The focus on my writing has to take precedence over my love of blogging. Right?!

Hope you have a productive and enjoyable time off!

I still have to check out the Writer's Weekly news. Good luck with the break (I was one of those who thought you were breaking now *blush*). I hope you have a productive time (I really need to take a break too).

Thanks for the links! I'll check out WNW.

I understand the need for a blogging break once in a while. Sometimes, the blogging just takes over and there isn't enough time for writing, and the writing is WHY I am blogging, so... Yeah. Blogging breaks are good once in a while.

Now I have to check out the horoscope site. Enjoy your break! :)

Tere Kirkland said...

Cool, thanks for the link.

Weirdly enough, my horoscopes are often eerily accurate. Not that I read into that stuff too much...

So, you are one of those people who believe that if you are accused of a deed you might as well do it? :) Have a nice break!

LOL about the fortune teller. Someone needs to go back to fortune telling school. ;)

Enjoy your break, Susan. :D

Heather Sunseri said...

Have a nice break, Susan! And just when I'm going to be able to blog a little bit more regularly. Oct. 15 is not coming and going quickly enough for me.

Anyway, I hope you get some good stuff done on your break! Did you get my email?

Faith said...

Thanks for the link to the website! Enjoy your break :)

I think I should probably take more "on purpose" breaks. They tend to happen by accident, a few days at a time, but more scheduled breaks would be a goo idea...

Stephanie Faris said...

Writer's News Weekly? Cool. I'm going to check it out!!!

Karen Peterson said...

That sounds like a great website! I'm going to have to check it out!

I took a few days off when my computer crashed. I lost EVERYTHING, Susan. All my family photos, writing. I have cried me a river. So I come to check in on my lovely pal, and see she's on break. Have a GREAT one. Hugs

I like the idea of being surrounded by shoes. Good ones. Not a bad fortune.
