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.
Time to chill for the night.
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
