Celebration

This weekend, a kind relative mentioned that I've been delinquent in my blogging. He's right. But I have a good reason; I've been fiendishly writing novels.

It's not quite time to pop THE bottle of champagne, but last night I celebrated two triumphs. The Bodley Boys is currently being read by an editor and three agents. YEA! And Pamela and I are one chapter away from finishing Center Court Seats and a Pair of Jimmy Choos. Okay, maybe I started celebrating early, but I finished MY last chapter! (no pressure, Pamela!) As soon as I emailed it to her, I called. I was shaking with excitement. It's good. It's really good, I screamed in her ear. (too confident, you say?!) This week, we're going to query an agent who was referred to us by a bestselling author!

What's next? It's time to start planning my fourth novel. Yes, fourth! Maybe someday soon I'll get paid for one of them! But hey, let's not let one minor detail hamper the celebration.

I can feel your excitement! That's terrific news. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

No pressure, no pressure at all. Now if I can keep the kids off the computer and my daughter out of my bed (so I can sleep without her knees in my back), I just might be able to wrap up our story. The anticipation is killing me!

Oh, I'm happy for you!! No envy at all on starting number four...no, really. (I'm younger.)

Cannot wait to see what happens next. It's gonna be good.
