The Mystery of the Disappearing Day

It’s Tuesday, do you know where your weekend has gone?

Mine disappeared during a trip to the States to an amusement park and some power shopping.

Just kill me now.

Well, not because of the amusement park, but because of the shopping. I HATE shopping. I know, I know, somewhere along the line I must have lost the female gene that requires my heart to thump at the thought of getting to go shop.

My gene makes my stomach clutch and my head start spinning. Shopping, my favourite thing.

Not.

But… I lie just a little. Because I did get to shop at a bookstore. Eight books later, which was about 10 minutes work if I remember correctly, I was out of there and could have driven the 3 hours home happily done my shopping for the day.

Me and Bookstores. Ummmmmm.

To Do Lists from Hell

True Confessions?

I’m a list maker. But not always a list completer.

Lists are like bunnies- leave them alone for a little while and when you come back to check them you’ve got lots more to take care of.

To-Do lists around my house currently include prepping for school starting in two weeks, getting my contract (!) stuff completed and sent in, finishing landscaping our house and writing my brains out on the three stories I’ve currently got started.

Busy? Nahhhh, I should add a few more things to list. Like 6 hour trips to the Orthodontist, fun family trip to Silverwood Amusement park, picking up a puppy…

Sleep is for whimps.

Heart beating wildly...

I’ve been sitting on pins and needles for weeks, hoping for a response on a story I submitted.

I had written ‘Hidden Away’ and really fell in love with the world of my werewolves. Then I found a submissions call for novellas about humourous wolves/ghosts and other spookies. The deadline was May 30th with selection by June 16th.

So in spite of the fact that it was already mid April, even though we were packing up the house and moving into a camper for a while. Plus going camping for a couple of weekends… well I wrote the story and submitted 20K.

I have to say I -like- that I only had to wait two weeks for an answer. (I HATE waiting…) I got a ‘No…but’. I wasn’t selected for the anthology but the editor was kind enough to pass on the story to another editor to look at as a regular submission.

She was also very quick and by June 23 I had another ‘No…but’. She gave me suggestions for revisions and said she’d look at again if I revised. Side note. Wow, was she ever good with her suggestions! I could see where the issues were and possibilities for changing. I am so glad that she’s good at her job!

Of course June 25 the family left for a three week trip to the east coast. I did take the laptop along and started revising. It worked well. I’d stew about scenes in my brain and then when I finally got a few minutes with electricity I’d flash out words like wildfire!

I resubmitted July 18th.

Did I mention I HATE waiting?

Late yesterday I got the email. ‘THE’ email.

It wasn’t ‘No…but’. It was ‘Yes…but’.

That’s when the heart pounding started. I need to sign a contract still, but I’m not too superstitious. It’s gonna happen. I’m getting published!

Oh, and the ‘…but’ part? I need to change the story title. Which is totally throwing me now as I’ve had the title since the first minute. But I can come up with something.

Because I’m a writer.

Let's start at the very beginning...


I suppose everything needs to begin at some point, although I’d far prefer to just jump in and pretend I’ve been here forever.

Because I have. I’ve always journaled about life, the universe and everything.

I’ve always rambled about nothing for long periods of time.

I’ve just never left my writing out on the table for others to pick up and read. Except for that ONE time and holy moly did I ever get in deep for that!

But in the interest of trying to get consistent in writing, in making writing more than just something I do for kicks…

I write therefore I Blog.
