Alright everyone, it’s been a little while since we did one of these, which means you’re in for a treat – a double monthly roundup! Who’s excited? ūüėČ

First up, in December Kati and I finally got ourselves on twitter. Yes, we are slowly dipping our toes into the 21st century. If you’d like to join us there, you can find us at:

@HiDLang and @ktbartkowski

Friends Despite the OddsWonder what it’s like to be leg-shackled to a writing partner? Kati and I talked about co-writing a book¬†here, and then discussed¬†some of the pros and cons as well as what to look for in a writing partner. Hint: they should be able to write. ūüėČ

We also read a lot of great books, like Paranormalcy, City of Bones, and Matched. ¬†Kati talked about her love of drawing, and we discovered that yes, dreams really do come true. ¬†Oh, and Jae over at Lit and Scribbles nominated us for the R.E.A.L.I.T.Y. award, so if you want to know what’s scarier than a spider, check it out.

kaya in the yardMoving right along, in January I tried distracting everyone from our lack of real blog posts with some cute puppy pictures. It sort of worked…and then it was time for Pitch Wars! We posted our first page and pitch for Mystic Cooking and kept our fingers crossed. Kati and I were fortunate enough to be chosen as the alternates by two awesome mentors, Elizabeth Briggs and Elizabeth Prats. We didn’t get any requests, but we did get a ton of great feedback and had a very fun time, so all in all I’d say win.

And in other news, apparently you’re the sum of the five people you spend the most time with, which is why we want to hang out with these people. And I’m pretty sure being Liebster Award winners, we could make that happen. Thanks to Moonstonemaiden for tagging us. ūüôā Also in January? Kati tried her hand at her own version of mystic cooking, and I begrudgingly saw Django Unchained…which turned out to be really good.

That was pretty much it for us here at Mystic Cooking HQ. Looking forward to another fun month of blogging ahead!
