Early, early Sunday

| February 28, 2010

The house is so silent, except for the ceiling fan humming a soft, still-mostly-night song. I don’t really care that it’s below freezing outside. I like to burrow deep beneath the blankets to sleep. Do you lie awake in the morning, trying to keep quiet so no one else will know you’re awake and think […]

The Name Game

| February 23, 2010

My proposal was rejected yesterday. I thought I’d be heartbroken if it happened, and it does sting a bit. Who would not have wished to write the most perfect proposal that ever crossed an editor’s desk?

Saturday–Too Busy!

| February 20, 2010

Daughter’s sick. Had to buy groceries. Had to get breakfast. (Yum! My affection for grits knows no bounds!) Do laundry. Exercise. Finally, into the laptop for some actual work! Hope you’re having a slow Saturday, with a good book and something you’ve been dying to do!

And maybe some chocolate covered cherries. Don’t […]

I’ve been gone a while

| February 17, 2010

We had weather that took out the satellite. I had revisions–which I’m gleeful to say–make the book better, and now it’s on the editor’s desk in England. I’m so happy about that. Now to run the revision through the next 55 unedited pages or so that I’ve already written, assuming I can keep some of […]
