|It's that time again! |
How would the people at Writing.com know if anything happened to you? And what would happen to your group items?
Leave a note in your will for someone to alert SM (they can send him an email at email@example.com from any email address including outside of WDC), and set up group succession plans as per "Transfer a Group To Another Member" .
I’ve left a letter for my family which includes instructions on how to contact SM, and I’ve told my husband and my sisters about the letter and the instructions. A copy is kept with my will. I’ve also written up "Group Succession Plans" so SM knows what to do with my groups and activities. How about you?
|In case anyone missed me (I know, you didn't even realise I was gone, did you?), my laptop broke, I sprained my wrist, and we have been super busy at work. I was actually away long enough to get an email saying 'You haven't logged in for about a week' which never happens. |
I got the laptop repaired, it stopped charging again, and I ended up buying a new one. Yay for a new laptop! Boo for all the money that's no longer in my account.
My wrist has been x-rayed and is definitely not broken, so that's a bonus. Just sprained. No idea how I did it. I had a specialist appointment on Tuesday that I'd been waiting four months for, for my shoulder, and he looked at my wrist at the same time, and now I'm booked in for an MRI on both my shoulder and my wrist. But basically, the answer is physio for both.
And we've just switched accounting systems at work, which has meant a LOT of work for me. Crazy amounts of data entry, which has been awesome with a sprained wrist, obvs. Some long days. But we're on the home stretch now.
Quills judging is pretty much all done, just a few small things on my end to do. Then we need to set a date! Shall we choose a Friday and a Saturday in May? Who's keen? When are you free? I can't please everyone, but I try to please a few of the key panellists. Who wants to be on the panel this year? Video involvement is preferable, talking is mandatory.
Okay, folks! I've set dates! Get your glad rags ready! I want to see tuxes and designer dresses, diamonds and pearls, stilettos and tiaras! And that's just for the guys!
PreQuills - Friday 14th May, starting at 5pm (WDC time)
Quills - Saturday 22nd May, starting at 5pm (WDC time)
Who wants to join me and Jayne on the Quills panel this year? To be fair to everyone, this will be a first come, first served kind of deal. And you don't have to do both (in fact, kind of cool to mix it up a bit). But I think with Zoom we're not so limited in numbers as we were previously, so 'she'll be right' as us Kiwis say. You'll need a working mic, and camera is optional but preferred.
If you're a newbie who is wondering what all the fuss is about, I'll put a link to last year's Quill ceremony video in the comments below.

|"Easter weekend" |
A long-winded explanation of my extraordinarily crappy weekend.
"My long weekend was a pretty epic rollercoaster that included me calling for an ambulance...twice.
It started on Thursday evening..."
|Thank you Secret Squirrel ~SS~ for the cnote and the gift points! I needed that after my spectacularly crappy long weekend. |
