Ahhhh....

I have just discovered the theraputic powers of Dove ice cream bars. I was first introduced to them in Welcome to Temptation by Jenny Crusie--they were the solution to many a problem in that book--and I don't know why I didn't trust such sound wisdom. (Probably because Dove bars are expensive, and I am cheap.) But today, a hellacious day, I found the little ones on sale at the grocery store and splurged. And just now, I had one each of the Cherry Royale and the Double Chocolate. Unbelievably yummy, and I feel better now, calmer, and ready to face an afternoon of editing. This just reaffirms my belief that I have so much to learn from Jenny Crusie.

In other news, I'm trekking across town tomorrow for an RWA meeting. The speaker will be best-selling author Julia London, and she plans to speak on both 'The Art of Writing with Humor' and 'The Seven Hightly Effective Promotional Habits of Bestselling Authors'. Should be great. I'll report back.

On to the editing....and perhaps one more Dove indulgence.

I found that the Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Ice Cream bars have a similar effect...

Have fun at your RWA meeting tomorrow! I have mine tomorrow too!

We don't get these bars in NZ!! But they sound great. Can't wait to hear about the RWA workshop.
