My Trip to NYC … or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Wear the Ketchup Costume

Remember my recent trip to NYC? The one where I attended a writing conference with my pal, Mel at According to Mags? The schedule was intense with breakfast sessions starting in the mornings at 8am (which may as well have been 4:30am) and continued activity the whole day that went straight through to the parties which wrapped up at 1am. Realize that both of those times ended with AM. We stayed pretty damned busy.

Except for the last day. The day where we had nothing to do. The day where we had nothing special planned. So we did something a little … unorthodox. And then decided to make it the theme of our brand-spanking-new, biweekly writing link-up.

Introducing …


Every once in a while, we all need to break out of the stuffy molds we have set ourselves in. Our day to day routines can quickly become mundane and we can easily lose ourselves in the monotony. Because who has time to be deliciously spontaneous … and delightfully unpredictable … and defiantly self-confident enough to just be a little silly?

That’s where the Ketchup With Us link-up comes in.

Check in with us on the 1st & 15th of each month. It’s just like pay day … except that nobody gets any money. It’ll be fun and easy …  because all of this stuff revolves around somebody wearing a ketchup costume. So how complicated can it be???

You KETCHUP with your friends.

You KETCHUP on your sleep.

So be sure to come KETCHUP With Us on September 1st!
