A submission on the Horizon
Quote of the Day:
“When I die, I want to die like my grandfather–who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.”
DH got a raise today! WEEHAW!
But I canâ€™t quit working yet. Darn the luck. But tis okay. Iâ€™m still on track for the two year goal of quitting when DS starts school.
Speaking of DS, he did great yesterday at VBS. He had a big day. A little shy at first but overall he did quite well. Afterwards, his grandparents took him to Panchos (he loves that place, I donâ€™t know why) for lunch. Yesterday afternoon, the went swimming in the little pool with his Papa and then was a big boy and had a shower. Needless to say, when I got there at 5:15 to pick him up, he was crashed. And hard. He slept all the way home. I had to bribe him with Star Wars crackers (Cheez-Its) to get him to wake up. And then he asked for Monsters, Inc. so I let him watch it.
I cooked pork chops, his favorite pasta, and green beans for dinner. He cleaned his plate. It was impressive. He must be growing since heâ€™s sleeping so much and eating so much.
Anyhooâ€¦ two issues of Scars of Yesterday done yesterday and turned in. Today I am working on two issues of Ransom & Fortune to turn in. I have half of issue 100 done. I canâ€™t believe Iâ€™ve made it to another 100th issue. WOOHOO.
Iâ€™ve decided to participate in the new KIC Soap Opera. Itâ€™s basically four soap characters who get to pop into the KIC serials, so Iâ€™m using my characters from Ransom & Fortune. Looking forward to writing it and it should be great fun.
Got about 1000 words done on the jousting novel yesterday but that was it. Iâ€™m kind of stumped on where to go with it so I just started writing the beginning. I was distracted and fidgety yesterday so I made a cover graphic for the jousting novel. I donâ€™t know why but it was fun to get that creative side out of me.
I got a nice nod here. Iâ€™ve decided to submit the fantasy novel to Cindy Hwang at Berkley. (Thanks for the nudge there, Jen.) Good gravy but Iâ€™m nervous about that one. I donâ€™t know why. I have these little wiggly butterflies in my stomach thinking about it.
Isnâ€™t that stupid?
All right, time to quit gabbing and get back to the writing (Iâ€™m waiting for the nod to print out the proposal thatâ€™s going out todayâ€¦ so Iâ€™m making use of the time).
