I can’t believe it’s Sunday already. Thought I’d check in before I get sucked into something else, liking making dinner or writing.
This week I entered a 300-word flash fiction piece in Brenda Drake’s “Can you leave them breathless?’ contest. It’s a morbid, twisted piece that came from the dark depths of hell somewhere inside of me, but what the hey. Who am I to battle the muse when it shows up?
Submitted a non-fiction short-story to Midlife Collage. It’s up for a ‘reader’s choice’ award. So far it’s in the lead. Keeping my fingers crossed through midnight tonight. I’ll find out tomorrow if I won.
Finished 2 more chapters on the novel I have to get back to the publisher. I never knew this sort of edit would take so flipping long, but I want it right.
Sent my query for scrutiny to an author who is soon-to-be-published through Harper Collins. I am really looking forward to her debut novel coming out in January. She also said she’d put in a word for me with her agent when I’m ready to submit. Can I say squeal loud enough?
On a personal front: spent time outside in this beautiful, cool Florida weather. Took dogs for walks, rode my bike, did a little gardening. The air is so clean, the breeze so refreshing. I wish it would stay like this forever – 50s at night, high 70s during the day with a soft gentle breeze. I have every window open. It’s cool enough to not need the AC, warm enough for no heat AND I can still get in the pool.
I saw Real Steel last night. I really enjoyed it, but what’s not to enjoy. It has Hugh Jackman in it. 😉 Anyway, it’s a great story. I would have liked to have seen a different ending but overall, I felt it was a real good, feel good family movie. The boy is a little cocky and he has a smart mouth on him but the language is pretty much limited to hell, damn and s*%t. No ‘fudge’ words.
Well, that’s it for me. What have you guys been up to?
