Recharge Winners! And Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

It was a big birthday weekend around our house - we always celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss with whatever wacky and wild menu I can come up.  It's a ton of fun - we read our favorite Dr. Seuss books, watch the classic cartoon versions of The Cat in the Hat and The Sneetches and usually overdose on sugary treats. 

This year's menu:
Skipper Zipper's Chops and Chips
The King's Stilts Veggie Sticks
Gertrude McFuzz Berries
Silly Sammy's Slick Sodas
Thing 1 & Thing 2 Cupcakes

What did you do this weekend?

And now to announce the winners from the Recharge: Winter Writing Retreat!  Winners were selected from

  • A copy of Our Town by Thornton Wilder -- to Jennifer Pickrell
  • A critique of the first 30 pages of your manuscript -- to Adrianne Russell
  • A bottle of OPI Nail Color in I Saw... U Saw... We Saw...Warsaw -- to Liz Parker
Congratulations!  Jennifer and Liz, please email crowriverwriter (at) with your mailing address.  Adrianne, send your first 30 to the same email address anytime after March 15 (I'm on a deadline for WFTS).

Don't forget, if you'd like to include some of your work from the retreat  in the "anthology" on Monday, March 18th (even if you didn't blog about it), please email me by the 16th. 

I won't be around much this week - WAITING FOR THE SUN is waiting for revisions, so I'm slipping back into my writing cave.

Thanks once again to everyone who participated in the retreat last week! 



  1. Those cupcakes are fantastic! Good luck with your edits. I'm sending an email w/ my addy in a few minutes - thanks!

    My daughter's birthday party was this weekend. I'm still recovering. ;)

  5. What a fun birthday to celebrate! My son was born on Dr. Seuss's birthday and the hospital gave hardcover copies of CAT IN THE HAT to all babies born March 2nd.

  6. Those are really great cupcakes! Although I'm older now, I still love Dr. Seuss.

  7. A great way to mark the occasion and the kids look like they're having a blast! You have a fun house.
