Critterpalooza!

Apologies for not being around much towards the end of the week (blame the awesomeness of Harry Potter, migraine and my edits).

We all know how awesome the writing community is. We support each other, cheer success and hug when it gets rocky. So when Angela Ackerman mentioned Critter, the unofficial mascot of the kidlit community, on the OA blog on friday, Katrina went deep undercover (okay, she did an interview really) to find out about critterpalooza.

Not only is Critter having fun adventures travelling the globe, he's also helping benefit St. Jude's Children's Hospital. For more details follow the link.

So tell me, what have you been up to this weekend?

I was up to the same thing as you...Harry Potter, edits and a sad attempt at making a dent in my reading pile! Hope you migraine is gone!

My weekend was pretty low-key, which was exactly what I wanted. Lovely walks through Hyde Park and Holland Park and plenty of mulled wine. Bliss!

I got to go skiing with the family! Great fun.

Carole Anne Carr said...

Thanks for that, how Critter and Co. came about.

Katrina L. Lantz said...

I love how generous and generally good the writing community is. I believe it comes from reading Harry Potter and the like. ;)

Weekend is way too far in the past for me to remember properly. LOL. Bless you for asking! Glad you enjoyed HP7.1!

I had a great weekend (which did include HP) and am looking forward to Thanksgiving break! :-)

I think critterpalooza was such a cute idea. One of my kids had to take a stuffed bear for the weekend and write a journal entry for everything they did together. By the time the bear worked its way through her class, the journal was full of amazing stories!

At first I thought it was a new music festival!
I'm ahead on my NaNo project and shouldhit the mark this weekend.

I read the interview with Angela. Awesome! I just love her enthusiasm.

I crossed the 40k line on my nano project. That's been keeping my mind and fingers busy!

Aren't migraines and edit mutually exclusive? :)
