Hello my sweet quidnuncks.

My awesome friend, Katy, tagged me about a week ago. The rules went something like this:

1. Go to page 77 of your manuscript.
2. Go to line 7.
3. Copy the next 7 lines/paragraphs.
4. Tag 7 other writers to do the same.

But the thing is…I haven’t written since last July.

Yeah it’s pretty much totally sad.

I just realized that I didn’t work well alone when it came to writing.

Or, umm, anything.

I don’t work well alone.


So I kind of shoved that onto a shelf in the back of my closet.

Ha, no not really. The manuscript for the book my previously mentioned awesome friend and I were writing is actually in a drawer in my dresser.


So instead, I am bringing back the seventh draft that I never posted from my blog.

Dun dun dun DUN!

Sorry Katy. I hope this is okay.

I started writing this post back in 2009 after I returned from a Thanksgiving camping trip with our church and friends.

Here goes nothing!


My Camping Trip
It was incredibly incredible, to put it mildly. Okay, let me not get carried away with myself. :)
First of all I guess I’d better tell you what and who were going.
It was a 4 day camping trip at St. Andrews state park in Panama City, Fl. Our spot was at the edge of the beach, it was really cool. We went with a huge group of almost 60 people. My great friends; Victoria, Spencer, and Sarah, and their awesome families were all there, and I met their friends and made good friends with them. We were always together, Sarah and I arm-in-arm for most of it, even through football. ;)
My family stayed in a trailer, but I slept with my friends – Victoria, Sarah, and Bethany – after the first night in their tent.(I asked too late the first night) It was cold the first night, and a certain lovely friend of mine drank hot chocolate a bit too late and had to go to the bathroom twice, so Sarah and I had to go with her. It was, to put it mildy, cold. I think our friendship strenghtened that night. :)
Well, I guess first of all I should get some pictures up here.
Well, there are some pictures, but I figured I should save some for the end. :)
Well, we all already know Victoria, she’s really cool and sweet. And Spencer…I’d rather not go into that subject. Sarah, goofy. I’ll probably get it for putting up that picture of her. And Joshua; he’s new, a friend of Sarah’s from school.  She introduced him to me. He’s a normal guy, maybe a little wackier than most…and he’s riding a pink bike. That alone is a warning sign.
All of our mornings started with

Y’all should be proud of me for not going through and changing half of what I said. I can’t believe how much my writing has progressed in the past three years. And…yeah.


I’m quite sad I never finished this post, but the memory is still quite alive in my memory. All the silly, quirky things that happened during the trip are coming to mind as I write this. Such great memories!

Anyway, that’s that! I actually don’t know any other writers besides she who tagged me so I won’t be tagging anyone, but I will be sending a great big shout out to Katy. Make sure to go check out her blog and follow her! She’s always pointing out great books and having fun giveaways!

Thanks Katy!
