You Passed 8th Grade Science
Congratulations, you got 8/8 correct!

Okay, I never do this, but it was fun! I got this from Orion's site (and she rarely does this kind of thing either so you know it was fun!) So, uh, I totally guessed on two or three of the questions so I can't believe I got them all right . . . but hey, go me!:)

The Valley of the Sun!

Well, this is just a small to let you all know I am out on vacation for a while in beautiful, sunny Phoenix. Yea!

A little piece of writing news, I got an e-mail forwarded to me from Miss Snark on Sunday. An agent e-mailed her about my hook and wants to see the manuscript . . . not that the manuscript is finished, but I was pretty stoked anyway. I believe Miss Snark said that has only happened once in the previous three CoMs. So I felt very complimented.:)

I am expecting to hear from Jodi the first week back in business (which for her is January) so I probably won't blog till then.

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday season!

Boy do you guys get the inside information.

Okay, this is really late breaking news that has nothing to do with my novel.

I'm getting Snarked!!!

I just got the e-mail from Miss Snark asking for 750 words.

The hooks not up yet, but if you are following the Crapometer, look for entry number 249/246. I love this project because it has voice. Like, major voice.

You'll see that in the future because *I get to send words!* Whoo-hoo!

*Big Grin*

BTW, I told Jodi not to stress about e-mailing me since it is such a busy time of year . . . I think she really took that advice at face value. I don't imagine I will hear from her again until January. Sorry for thos eof you who may have been waiting on the edge of your seat. *Haha, right.*


ETA: Hehe, Miss Snark's comment was--and I quote-- "yes yes yes yes yes." :)

And the News Is . . . .

That Jodi's had a lot of last minute meetings come up, but that I am off to a great start and she will get me notes by the end of the week, she promises!:)

*Laugh* So today, since my life is boring, I am sending you here. This is Orion/Pat's site (I really need to put a link up) and she has lots of exciting things happening. Her book sold in the last few weeks to Putnam (everyone ooh and ahhh . . . good.:)) She also writes so lyrically even on her blog and always has gorgeous pictures of the beautiful Pacific almost every day. Go check it out. I read it when I'm cold. :)

Very Small Update!

Jodi e-mailed me yesterday (I was sick and in bed *bleh* and didn't get it till this morning) to let me know that she is halfway done with my revisions and is loving them. She has just a couple more notes and will send them to me by tomorrow.

Happy Birthday Mom!!

As you can probably guess from the title, this has nothing to do with writing. It's my mom's birthday today and, as she gets a big kick out of my blog, I thought I would dedicate this entry to her.

Happy Birthday!! (I won't say which one.:))

My mom is the most patient, loving, understanding person in the world. And if you don't agree, it's because you never met her.:) My mom is the only person I have ever known who does not have a single person who dislikes them. Seriously, no one dislikes my mother. That's not biased; it's fact. No one can think of anyone who does not like my mother. She's one of those few and far between people who no one can dislike. (I don't really take after her in that way.;))

She supports me in everything I do (she's the coach, my dad's the cheerleader . . . and he looks great in that skirt. *snort*) and is always happy for my successes, big or small. My hubby is going to lawschool full time and I am a stay-at-home-mom, so we're not really in gift-giving mode right now, so Mom, here's your present.

Happy Birthday and I love you!!!
