25 Days in the Hole

         Yikes! It's been 25 days since my last post. For those two people who are so desperate for entertainment that you read my blog, here's what happened in the past 25 days:


1. My son went to Norway and came back--safely. (That's him on top of that rock.)  

2. I created a synopsis for my manuscript, and then sent it off (along with the first ten pages) for a critique. On time.

3. I am almost finished with the above-mentioned WIP. Within the next couple of days it will be a WIF (work is finished) instead of a WIP.

4. I've spent the last month with 15 amazing writers-teachers. Sadly, that is about to come to an end.

5. I found a job. A language arts/reading job. A dream job. A job that is sure to make me glad I retired from the public school.

          For those who forgot me over the last 25 days, I understand. But for my two followers, I only have two words:

                     I'm back.

    1. Lisa--Thanks. But you know better than I do--when the manuscript is finished, the real "fun" work begins...

  4. So many accomplishments! Over the past 25 days, I petted a puppy.

    Congrats on your job and WIP(F) finalization. Your son is giving me heart palpitations.

  6. Hooray for you! Congratulations on finishing your novel. I've only begun to appreciate what a tremendous amount of work such a project requires. Can't wait to hear the details of the last few weeks.

    P.S. Seeing anyone standing on that rock makes me a nervous wreck!

  9. You're the one who's impressive! Good job on the job, and MY kids went to Norway and also returned safely. Fortunately, they did not take a picture of themselves on this rock, because it makes me very nervous.
