It’s been awhile. Have a million excuses. But I doubt you care to hear them anymore than I care to type them.
Just sent the new edit of my middle grade novel off. It’s a light giddy feeling. Didn’t know if I was going to be able to manage. Seemed overwhelming to have to piggy-back the shooting block two of Bomb Girls and memorizing block three with trying to squeeze in the time to implement another slew of edit suggestions from my editor, Lynne, at Penguin. I thought I’d be scrambling until the very last minute…
But no! Ha…ha! I conquered that mountain. Not only did I manage to get it done, but I finished it well before the deadline. I can’t tell you how triumphant I feel!
I’m going to take the rest the day off and hang with husband and my son, Will. Cook something tasty, maybe go to a movie, read a short story or two. Candy of course. I’m going to eat some candy to celebrate whether I feel like it or not, and blue berries too. Lots of blue berries! Life is good.
