Okay, so I’ve decided to start a 2nd blog. I’ll still use my livejournal one as well and cross post between the two of them. Yeah, I’m sounding kind of ambitious here (LOL).
The good news is I survived April, which was a miracle in itself. April seemed to be the month from hell for me. Back in March my youngest daughter broke her wrist and in April the doctor decided it wasn’t healing right so she ended up having surgery. Then my youngest son had to get braces.
But April was also great in that I finished my last edits on The Winter People (thanks to my fab crit group over at YAFF). And so I sent my baby out in the world. Yes, this means that the querying has begun (insert maniacal laugh here). So now I sit by my email with eagerness, excitement, nervousness. And most of all, with hope.
The life of a writer is full of so many emotions. Like I stated above there’s excitement, hope, fear, wonder, and sometimes even grief. But the important thing I found is, no matter what kind of news you get, keep writing.
I’m hoping May will be my “good news” month, but we’ll see. It’s definitely starting off okay–I have my anniversary this week, one of my son’s will celebrate a birthday, and at the end of the week is Mother’s Day, which means lots of cool “homemade” gifts from my babies!
Well time for some shut eye!
