Congratulations to Jessica and Evie! They’re the winners (randomly selected) of my Waiting for You Contest. Cheers, ladies!
If you entered the contest, this next thing pertains to you. Today is the first day of National TV Turnoff Week. Participating in this annual event is simple. All you have to do is not watch TV (including TV on the computer) from April 19 to April 25. You’ll be surprised at how much free time you’ll suddenly have! With all that free time, participants pledge to do at least three things that will improve their lives. Everyone who entered my contest left a comment telling me three things they’ll do this week instead of watching TV. If you commented, then it’s time to start! No worries if you didn’t – you can decide on your three things now and begin. Please let me know how it goes.
When I was teaching, I’d offer National TV Turnoff Week as extra credit. I passed out pledge forms to my students and we hung them up all around the room. Here’s my pledge form from 2006, while I was writing Take Me There (the Mrs. Maguire thing is because Tobey was at the top of my husband list at the time):
It’s also the first day of my Something Like Fate blog tour! For the next two weeks, I’ll be visiting ten blogs to discuss fate-related concepts from the book. To kick off the festivities, Lenore asked me about my craziest “coincidental” connection. Find out what it was (it was hard picking just one!) and why I consider coincidences to actually be non-coincidences at Presenting Lenore. Plus, if you tell her your craziest non-coincidence you’ll be entered to win a signed copy of Something Like Fate. Sweet!
