In case you missed the earlier whining, along with the backstory, here goes: girl writes story. Girl sits on her butt for several years, not sending it out yet continuing to whine, all the while certain it's a decent story. But on her butt she sits nonetheless.
Enter Barb Hodges and the Saturday Writers. Girl is motivated to send her picture book manuscript---finally---to a publisher. Girl sits on her hands for almost four months (so she can't bite her nails in nervousness).
Girl gets rejected (of course) but she has a Plan B in mind. Riding in on a majestic horse is Louella Turner, of High Hill Press. Because Lou is sitting on the saddle behind John Wayne, she has to lean out to see Girl, but manages to tell Girl that High Hill might indeed be interested in the manuscript...
Pinch me...Is this a dream?
