Doing a Little Wandering...

No baby yet, which is actually okay as I'm only 37 weeks. But my doctor is probably going to have me induced at the end of next week *fingers crossed*. In the meantime, I'm going to let my nesting instinct take over (why did the front room closet never bother me before this week?) and pull back on blogging.

While I'm taking a break from writing actual posts, I'm going to be busy making friends for the Gearing up to get an Agent blogfest (GUTGAA). If you haven't heard about it, it's going to be an awesome pitch extravaganza with lots of agents and even a few small publishers involved. So if you're in query mode you'll want to check it out for sure.

The details are here.


Even if you're not pitching you should check out the blogs on the linky and make a few new friends. That's what I'm planning on doing until baby is born. I'm hope to meet lots of you before September 1st!

Are you joining GUTGAA? Anything else fun happening in September?

Oh you're so close! Fingers crossed for next week!!!

GUTGAA sounds like an awesome idea :D I'm not in the querying phase yet so I'll probably do what you're doing.

Take a break and conserve your strength. Hope all goes well next week.

I'm super stoked for this blogfest and making a bunch of new friends! Rest easy and enjoy the sleep while you can. That is... if you are sleeping. I have a hard time cuddling with a bowling ball type teddy bear ;)

Oh, wow, next week for the baby! Breathe, breathe, breathe. I was induced too and it still took like twelve hours, so don't wear yourself out too much with cleaning closets. :)

And have fun with the blogfest.

Carol Kilgore said...

Exciting times ahead for you :)
I'm taking a full-September blog break!

Rachel said...

I signed up for this, but haven't checked in on it. It's my first year, so I'm unsure how it works. Better go check it out. :)

Rest up for the inducing. Good times ahead. I wish I could be ready for that blogfest. I'm not though.

The last few weeks of pregnancy are just agonizing! I'm glad you're almost there...
We'll miss you, but I'm sure you'll need a break from blogging once the baby comes. Good luck!!!

Morgan said...

Gaaaaaah... you POOR THING!!!!! Ugh! It's miserable. Every day is a week. Serious! I hope it happens soon for you! (But then that brings a whole new slew of excitement--but I think it's better than pregnancy, LOL!)

Jessica Salyer said...

Good luck! Off to check out GUTGAA.

What an exciting time for you. Babies are such fun. I hope I'll get to chat with you in Sept. as we Gear up to Get an Agent.

Take it easy, and best of luck! See you around in September - I'm also taking a break until then, but to get my novel ready to go blinking into the sunlight! Don't know if I'll get there but something tickles me about being in the competition. :)

Annalisa Crawford said...

Take care, and all the best!

I'm not taking part in the agent thing - I'm not sure I'm suitable material for attracting an agent.

Carolyn V said...

I hope all goes well for you and your soon-to-be baby!!! Woohoo! That is great news.

I'm just coming back from a long summer break. I'm going to have to check out the GUTGAA! Thanks for letting us know about it!

Madeleine Maddocks said...

Not pitching yet I'm afraid. Know I should be by now.

Enjoy your new baby's arrival.

Lauren said...

Signed up this afternoon. So when will the new arrival need a computer? :)

Stephsco said...

Thanks for commenting over on my blog. I'm looking forward to the GUTGAA (funny acronym) since I finally have a finished novel! Woohoo!

Kimberly Gabriel said...

37 weeks! That's wonderful! Good luck!! I'll see you for GUTGAA...it's so nice to have someone else going through it who will also be dealing with that whole lack of sleep thing. ;)

Donna K. Weaver said...

I did it last year, and it was a great experience. Good luck with it . . . and the new addition!

Nata said...

I don't know how much of it I will actually be able to participate in, but I'll be there! :] A baby, that's wonderful! I wish you good luck!

I've been thinking of you & your belly. Hoping your hanging in there & wishing you a fast & painless birth(!)
