Beating the Blahs!

So I'm suffering from sinus stuff (Excuse me, we have cold weather for days, then we jump up into the 80s? This is ridiculous!) and my mind's just twisting off in strange directions. I'm almost 17K into this wip and quite clearly I'm hearing this is NOT for the CBA. So my dilemma? I need to start something that IS geared to the CBA for me to enter in the Genesis, if I decide to do that. But what? Not a clue! UGH! So I'm avoiding right now. LOL I've updated my website...yeah, you guys need to check that out....and I'm working on submitting applications to teach workshops at next year's ACFW conference. Yeah, don't ask. LOL ANYHOO, my Golden Heart entry is out the door...sent yesterday! WOO HOO. Now if I can just put it out of my mind until March when they announce the finalists! UGH, long wait, but SO worth it, I suppose. Let me see, what else is upcoming for me? Oh, on the 15th of this month the SSSS winners are supposed to be announced. I'm a finalist, so that's pretty exciting to see if I placed. On Dec 1st they'll announce the Susannah finalists and Dec 29th the Emily contest will announce their finalists. Hmm...will be a tension-filled holiday season for me! LOL Also, I judged in a couple of contests where there were some REALLY GOOD entries. Okay, there were TWO in the four contests I judged. I want to watch for those finalist postings as well and see how those entries did. Wow, I'm really rambling now, aren't I? Okay, back to trying to do SOMETHING constructive as I avoid actually WRITING! LOL

Why do you think it's not geared toward the CBA? It's peppered with scripture, contains no cursing or sexual content. Am I missing something?

I don't know, Cynthia.....just something that's been nudging me. Not sure why. Guess I'll just have to wait and see where God leads me on this one!

Avoiding the wip, I know how that goes. I need to start thinking about the genesis too. Though I really hoped I wouldn't qualify. You know, hoping my ms would sell before then. I'd be cold and blue if I'd been holding my breath, so guess I'll prepare. Hate to stop what I'm working on to start something new though. I better get busy!

Gina....since I'm being led that what I'm working on will lean more to the ABA (still don't know why), I think I'll start something new in Jan to enter in the Genesis. If I enter. SIGH.
