Good News:)

I inquired about my submission to Eternal Press, and was told I should hear something by the end of the month; they are just now getting around to reviewing their April submissions. Keep your fingers crossed!

Started another book this past week. I wrote it in longhand during my weekly writer's meeting (I was the only one w/o a laptop...I feel so deprived!); typed it up on Wednesday, and kept going. Friday, I opened the file again and wrote some more, finishing it, or so I thought.

Word count was only 6,693. Too short for a submission.

So on Saturday, I added what I thought was another chapter, plus the first line of a second. And last night, I reread it.

The new chapter's only 2 pages long. Oops! I'll have to expand on it some more.

And I'll have to change the title.

So yes, I still have some work to do on it. I think I'll print off the first chapter and ask the members of my new group to give me their opinion of it. And if Barb would regain her interest in reading, I'll gladly shoot a couple of pages her way!

Other good news? I'm mobile again:) Hubby fixed the van and it works! Next week's repair is the brakes. And then eventually, the fuel pump again.

See there? I need a contract. I need to sell lots of books so I can afford a newer used van! Mine's only 8 years old, but it was used heavily before I got it in 2005!
