Put a check mark by that one Jack


Monday, April 01, 2013

Monday.
April Fool's Day

But I am not fooling.
Walked about a mile (at home, at store, day off)
Got to see my grandson.
Made gluten free chocolate chip muffins for my family breakfast.

FINISHED. COMPLETED. April 1 Goal - finish my middle grade novel and submit to contest. I also sent it out to an agent.
I also sent out text only to a picture book I've written.
I did not send out the one with pictures, as I did not feel ready with that one.

I am thrilled with my final edit of the novel. I changed some character names and tightened up the writing, and feel so much better for it. Great sigh of relief. I actually had been sitting on it without going any further since 2008. I started writing that one in 2000, finished it for a different contest in 2005.

So, put a great big check mark by today.
I'm done.
Time to chill for the night.
Deborah

p.s. I am beginning to think that if I had not been recovering from all the back injury stuff, I would not have looked back at my creativity, my painting, my fiberarts, or my writing. True.



Completed manuscript 139 pages

That is fantastic!! Out of the cloud falls the silver lining! I am so glad you found something to fullfill your life dreams with. Rare that will happen to anyone. I always think when one door closes to you, another will open.
All the best of success my friend :)
