I'm Not SUPERWOMAN?????????

Unbelievable, right? I know! I'm still having a really tough time accepting this revelation! I even argued with God when He gave me this epiphany. Surely my robe DOES have super hero abilities????? I mean, come on....I must be superwoman! SIGH. Don't know why I bother to argue with God--he's always right. It just takes me a while to adjust and accept. Double Sigh!

On Life: My 5 yr old came home yesterday with fever...101.7! UGH. Then, this morning, she woke up with a stomach bug! YUCK! Can someone say "I LOVE PHENERGAN"?

On Writing! I finished the revisions on Smoldering Ice and officially emailed it off to the editor this morning! WOO HOO! No more looking at that ticking clock and forgetting to breathe. Even got the series title and subsequent books re-titled as well....how do these hit you: Twisted Elements Series...Book One, Smoldering Ice, Book Two, Chilling Impressions, and Book Three, Burning Rites. Many thanks to all of you who made suggestions! HUGE thanks to my "title gurus": Ronie Kendig, Dineen Miller, and Colleen Coble! :)

On That Pesky Rejection (as Randy I would say): If I revise the ms, the agent is willing to look at it again. So, BACK TO REVISING! This ms is currently titled Torrents of Destruction and is Book One of the Gallagher Series. I'll be putting up a revision progress bar ASAP!

On Contests: I'm considering entering in the ACFW Genesis contest. Not sure which one I'd enter: Torrents or my current wip. There're a couple of things I'm having to take into consideration. Hmmm...still debating with myself, but I'll let you know when I figure it out!

So, how are YOU doing?

I *adore* Phenegran. We've had some good times together. Glad your girl is doing better!

CHickey said...

With all you're trying to do, you must be Superwoman!

Dana Pollard said...

You do wear a SuperWoman cape, you just can't feel it cause you're so busy. I do the same thing at times, but have to remind myself of my super human powers.

Glad to hear the little one is doing better with the tummy thing. I'm sorry I abruptly let you go the other day on the phone. We had a tummy emergency... along with screaming cause it hurt so bad. I tell ya...

Do you hear me clapping my hands and jumping up and down? You got your ms sent off in the mail! woohooo!!!!

Now, (deep breath) about me. Expect your email box to be full this week. I've got to get this sucker (ms) edited this week and a synopsis written in 4 weeks.

(ironing my superwoman cape now...)

Does having wonderwoman underoos count on the superwoman status? Somedays I wonder if wearing them as a kid rubbed off....... Here I think I can tackle anything and am amazed when I get tired or stressed!~~ now that I think about it.. I am amazed often... hmmm

Congrats on your MS and I think the "bug" has now hit our house!!
Glad to hear your little one feels better!
