CONTEST -- free book!!!

I’ve been buried alive by work at my day job – for almost two weeks straight – and I’m sooooo glad it’s Friday.

Confidentially, my job used to be this demanding all the time, but lately, we had a bit of a lull, and I grew accustomed to it. Then wham!

Anyway, I think I’ll celebrate the break by having a CONTEST. Would you like to win one of my books? Leave me a comment here, or send me an email at katedonovan @ hotmail dot com, and give me sympathy for having had to work so hard. The more the better. I’ll draw a name next week, and send an autographed book out in the next day's mail.

Yes, I know – that’s a pretty lame contest, but I don’t have the energy to do more.

Nor do I have the energy to review the two DVDs we rented last weekend – FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS and PRESTIGE.

Let’s just say, I’m glad we waited for the DVDs. The movies were okay, but not great. I still have high hopes for the sequel to FOOF, though (do you love the acronym?!) – that one from the Japanese point of view (my tired brain can't remember the name. Sheesh...). We plan to see that one in the theater if possible.

I’ll check back later this weekend, maybe even with some updates on my writing life. Meanwhile, don’t forget to send me sympathy by blogpost or email! Exaggerate all you’d like – I’ll lap it up, I assure you.

p.s. If you think of it, put CONTEST in the subject line if you enter by email. That way I can spot your message amongst all the bizarre advertisements I receive over at hotmail. (My own fault, since I've used that email address all over the net and have given it in person to any retailer who'll give me a % off my purchase for selling my identity. I guess I respect a bargain better than I respect myself!)

Yes, I have the Day Job Blues too. :-( It leaves me drained and tired and all I want to do at night is munch snackwells cookies while watching TV when I should be chained to the computer and writing.

Re: DJ Blues
You're right -- it's not the fact that we have to work hard at work, it's the way it saps all our strength and will, so we can't do anything when we get home.

I've had boring and/or non-demanding jobs and those are worse. So I love the fast pace, the hot topics, the politics, at my day job. But enough is enough. Leave me something for the home scene! Not to mention the writing scene (which I usually save for weekends anyhow)

Hope the pressure eases up for you so you can get back to the computer!
