Mondays to do

Let's not talk about the weekend, shall we? Suffice it to say that it was very hectic and non productive and included a trip to the urgent care with baby girl. All is well now. Kinda.

On to some good news and this weeks to do. Dash of Desire is a second place finalist in the Gotcha Contest. Now I have a couple of weeks to review the judges comments and sending it to the final round judge, Susan Litman, Senior Editor for HQ.

I am so happy it finaled. This tells me that I really can write adult romance! Unfortunately, my little manuscript is not done and what should I do if I get a full? Note to self: Pray for a miracle.

This Week's To Do
Write four articles before the 1st.
Write 50 pages in Dash
Make new articles due list
Update tracking records
Pitch new articles for favorite editors
Research other markets for my nonfiction work

Short, sweet and not very realistic wwith my wee foster girls. Have no choice though.

Glad the baby is okay now and a BIG hooray on the contest. That's definitely a nice way to start the week!!

Congrats on finaling, Teri! That's AWESOME news! Knew you could do it. And don't worry about the mss not being done. Just keep working on it and think positive. You WANT to be asked for the full mss.

Hugs on the kidlet

You needed good news, glad the contest could get it for you :) And...if she asks for a full, here's what I'd suggest. Ask for her to call you to talk about the direction of the story. That way, you'll have fewer revisions as you can write it as she sees it :D She'll think the extra time you'll need is you tweaking it for her.
