Funny September

For me, this time of year is a kind of bookish rapture. The Eden Mills Writers’ Festival, Word on the Street Toronto, and the Victoria College Book Sale are what my Septembers are usually built upon, allowing me to bring home ample inspiration, sunshine memories, and new piles to add to my to-be-read stack. But this year is a bit funny, as my sister had the nerve to put her wedding right in the thick of it, and so now we’re going to be on other side of the country instead of at Word on the Street, and we gave Eden Mills a miss in order to save funds for that trip across the country. Which is all right actually, because my sister’s wedding is going to be wonderful, and I have so many books in my stack that I’m grateful to be put a timezone away from the Vic Book Sale, but it’s been overwhelming getting work done in time for before I go. So this is why you get to read about why I’m really tired, instead of reading about my brilliant time at Eden Mills. But I promise, I’ll be back to all three next year, and it will be a fine reminder to wish my lovely sister a happy anniversary.

    Other side of the country? Are you going to be in BC?!

      Golden BC, but mostly in Alberta. Wish we could trek just a little bit farther and come and see you!

    Too bad for me, but lucky you. It’s such a beautiful area to be, especially this time of year!

    Too bad for me…the one time in my life I was reading at Eden Mills, Word on the Street and Kingston writers’ festival..and I missed a chance to meet and hobnob with you! Oh well. It was all delightful anyway.

      I know! Was so sorry to miss you, Michele, but heard you were fantastic at Eden Mills and WOTS. I do looking forward to meeting up one of these days…
