I'm in a happy/sad kinda place right now. Lots of great things are happening, but just as many not great things are happening also. For example...

My first book, Push, was reviewed on the blog Reading For Sanity. (Happy!)

One of my closest friends moved to Georgia. (Sad.)

I entered my books in a self-published writers contest which I didn't win, but it's okay because they sent reviews of my books, and the reviews will be published in Writer's Digest. (Happy!). The reviews were great, though there wasn't much love for the covers, and I could use a good editor (yes, I could), but (Happy!).

The second of my closest friends is moving back to Washington at the end of this week. (Sad.)

I'm teaching the Gospel Doctrine class in my church. (The jury is still out on that one.)

I still have many stories swirling around in my head, and I still love writing. (Happy!), but I'm running low on motivation with the last of my closest friends moving to Utah in about two weeks. (Sad a lot.)

Man, this post is bummin' me out. Here's a picture of some kittens:

Did I say kittens? I meant a big dam bridge and four random kids. Just kidding, they're mine. The kids, not the bridge.
