Hey y’all! Yeah, I haven’t written, but I’ve been very busy wrapping things up on several ends.
First, my daughter’s in her last few weeks of school, so there’s MAP testing, Interim Assessments, and makeup work to raise a couple of her grades. It’s a more trying time than normal because she’s not on her behavioral medication, because I’m not taking her out, not even to a routine checkup with her doctor. I will deal with her ‘tude’ and helicopter her for the remainder of the school year. I have taken the corona virus quarantine very seriously.
My birthday was last Sunday. So, yup, I’m another year older, and I spent the entire day doing absolutely nothing. Hubby and sat on sat on our front porch for most of it because the weather was absolutely gorgeous. Around mid-morning, I mixed a couple Cape Cod Spritzers for us, and sat on the porch drinking them in. At lunch, we ate and drank beer. The only productive thing I did the whole day was talk and laugh with my hubby, and sang and danced with our daughter in the living room. I also received several birthday wishes from my parents and friends! It was a fantastic day!
Having said all that, the day before my birthday, I completed my manuscript! I am so excited! Now, that being said, I have already been in touch with my ‘possible’ agent, and I swear, I think we spoke over the phone for the better part of an hour. I was so nervous, but my ‘possible’ agent was excellent. He calmed my nerves and had me laughing, but the best part about our conversation is that he seemed to get a quick grasp of my personality. My quirky personality shines all throughout my book, so I actually not nervous anymore about publishing my book. I am anxious, excited, and eager to get started on the next stage. The hardest part is over, for now because I’m taking a short, vacation-like break from creating in writing. I’m going to write down ideas, but I’m not creating any new material. Only for a short time.
The bottom line as of right now, there’s a 50% chance they won’t accept my work, but there’s a 50% chance they will accept my work. Monday, when I submit my manuscript to my ‘possible’ agent, he will then give it to one of his people to read and review. I’ll know one way or the other, ‘will they publish me, will they not publish me’, in 5-7 business days. So, “Y’all Didn’t Hear It From Me” will be in my ‘possible’ agent’s inbox first thing Monday morning.
If y’all would, please say a pray and send positive vibes my way, for my book. I would love to make this dream a reality. I would love for y’all to read it after it’s published! Please, leave your positivity in the comments below.
Thanks for reading, and following me y’all. I appreciate and value every one of you. Positive vibes!
