Still Waiting...

Sigh. I hope the silence I'm hearing is actually the sound of my manuscript being mulled over, passed around, and being considered for publication! I was told two weekends ago that it was being looked at; I hope the reason it is taking so long is that SOMETHING about the story has grabbed someone, and they are trying to find a place for it in their lineup??? I'd rather have a thought-out acceptance than a simple, rushed, 'Sorry; not what we want.'

But in the meantime, I'm reading, I'm trying to write, and since the financial status in our household has been stressful, I'm spending considerable energy keeping my spouse happy. Not an easy job when he's convinced God is using him for a punching bag.

I thought I was on a roll, and then LIFE happens. And to top it all off? Another storyline popped into my head last night. I just wish I could go off by myself for a couple of weeks and finish SOMETHING! I'd like to get one or two more manuscripts finished by December...

Kenzie - it happens to all of us. I need to finish a couple books, too, and yet, I'm dying to work on a different book. I'd like to submit at least three more stories this year, more if I end up writing short.

Also, my hubby feels like yours is right now, a lot. He always thinks someone is out to get him.
