Writing life

I've been writing and holidaying and not blogging. Sorry :(. Today something happened that I have to share with you. I got a letter from Richmond. Now like every woman out there who was raised right, I usually follow the rules, too much so. A few weeks ago I recklessly sent off a partial thinking it would take months to hear back.
I mean considering the season and all, longer than usual, right?

Au contraire mon amis, today I got a letter from Richmond. My heart pounded, my knees turned to aspic and my fingers trembled. It was a nice thoughtful note telling me my submission arrived safe and sound.

This writing business has its moments of excitement.

Happy new year and may your fondest dreams come true.

Aren't they wonderful that way? I'd submitted a MS to Temptation years ago, and received the same thing, and I remember wishing that all the offices did that.

Keeping my fingers crossed the next letter you get is a request!

That confirmation letter is a scary pitter pat. But it's there! Waiting to have the rest of the story join it!

Jenna,

That's the truly scary part - especially since I do not write like the wind, as others. ;)
