What was YOUR week like?
I've also been working furiously to meet a deadline on a project I'm working on with three other amazing authors, which of course amped up the pressure because I want to make sure I turn in a quality story. Add in a couple other upcoming deadlines and my best friend's thirty-fifth birthday today and I've been running all week long.
But by far, today's events capped off a rather wacky week. They began with getting pulled over by a VERY hot cop, but alas, as this was not an erotic romance story, he did not ask to strip search me or anything equally scandalous. He did, however, try to "educate" me on not using a cellphone while driving, which didn't really apply as I hadn't been. As anyone who knows me knows, I don't use my phone much. Weeks go by where I don't even turn it on. In fact, my last call was made April 5th, so I wasn't exactly worried about getting a ticket. But it turned out not to matter, because my beloved best friend is a bit of a hothead and got VERY vocal in defending my honor. She started her birthday morning with a near arrest - only thing that saved her was my telling the cute, mean cop that it was her birthday - and we ended it by getting pedicures (my first!) We had a lot of laughs over the "incident" and I now have very cute yellow and purple flowers on my nails. A full day indeed.
Probably the funniest part of my cop run-in? The hero of my current WIP, Shane, is an ex-cop turned PI. I definitely looked at Shane in a whole new way as I sat down to write tonight.
So how was YOUR week? While I scramble to meet my deadlines and make it through the last day of the week at my day job, I'll leave my fellow Wicked ladies to serve in my stead. I'll look forward to catching up with all of you tonight...and I hope I wasn't the only one who had a zany week! Come on, tell me your best stories!
