These Lying Eyes

My book: These Lying Eyes

Alas,

I took two weeks of vacation in order to prep my book for an editor.  You noticed the “alas” I presume.  It isn’t so bad as that…no worries.  So, where am I ?  Basically it goes like this:

1) I have a full-time job

2) I have two foster children, ages 1 and 2

3) I have been writing a book

4) I am considering, very seriously, switching programs I foster through–and am hence facing further home “studies.”  (Highly stressful as I have a fair amount of crazy German cleaner in me.  Normally, yes, I’m messy, but I can’t just stuff things in a closet and move on; I have to clean, clean.  Y’know?)

As you can imagine, my stress level is high.  But I am DETERMINED.  🙂  Determined, hopeful, and not giving up.  Not today, not ever.  This seems like a big preface to telling you I failed, but I don’t feel like I failed–I feel like I’m in a good spot.  Right now, I’m reading the full manuscript through.  I am debating having a friend give it another quick read through or just turning it in.  Either way, I am DARN, SUPER, INCREDIBLY close.

Woo-freaking-hoo.

p.s. don’t worry–i’ve stocked up on all i need to get through (except sanity)

p.p.s. (I was going to insert a photo of my dr. pepper 24 pack. unfortunately, i can’t get it to work.  imagine it covered in rainbows and unicorn kisses

  1. Good luck on everything. And since you don’t need anything but sanity, how about I’ll just send some heartfelt prayers your way?
