I took two weeks of vacation in order to prep my book for an editor. You noticed the “alas” I presume. It isn’t so bad as that…no worries. So, where am I ? Basically it goes like this:
1) I have a full-time job
2) I have two foster children, ages 1 and 2
3) I have been writing a book
4) I am considering, very seriously, switching programs I foster through–and am hence facing further home “studies.” (Highly stressful as I have a fair amount of crazy German cleaner in me. Normally, yes, I’m messy, but I can’t just stuff things in a closet and move on; I have to clean, clean. Y’know?)
As you can imagine, my stress level is high. But I am DETERMINED. 🙂 Determined, hopeful, and not giving up. Not today, not ever. This seems like a big preface to telling you I failed, but I don’t feel like I failed–I feel like I’m in a good spot. Right now, I’m reading the full manuscript through. I am debating having a friend give it another quick read through or just turning it in. Either way, I am DARN, SUPER, INCREDIBLY close.
p.s. don’t worry–i’ve stocked up on all i need to get through (except sanity)
p.p.s. (I was going to insert a photo of my dr. pepper 24 pack. unfortunately, i can’t get it to work. imagine it covered in rainbows and unicorn kisses
