The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

The Christmas present are wrapped, some only-really only half way through the shopping list and the grocery list is being made with my usual requests for rum and chocolate.

Guidance

I would have added an entry sooner...if my internet was working. (GRRR..ok I'm over it) I have been thinking about the this whole book deal gig again. I have sent off an enquiry letter to another agent and I'm awaiting any type of response. But the longer it takes the more I wonder if I'm really cut... Sign in to see full entry.

Yay, Christmas...no, seriously.

As wonderful as this book opportunity was, I, in the end, didn't take it. I read the contract they sent me by email. It was by email-I was expecting a hardcopy and I wasn't expecting it so soon. That made me feel like something wasn't right. So I googled them, the agents. What I read about them was... Sign in to see full entry.

Hands up if you like writing?

Book Update: The agent is NY is very interested. The review was positive and the most delicious words I have ever read in an email were written to me: ''We would be proud to represent you'' Delicious right? All I need now is a critique done, to see what needs a-polishin'. But even so, the beginning... Sign in to see full entry.

Both Sides of the Page

Okay I know I haven't been around as much. I know, I know, I'm sorry for that. The only time I get to write daily is after I get back from work.

The Music that He Made

I have come to realize that the music I listen to has one thing in common. A saxophone. Or at least, a pretty large big band in the back ground, with a saxophone as part of the wind section. 'I must have been a saxophone player in a past life,' I tell myself, 'Or at least married to one.' I imagine... Sign in to see full entry.

The Break Up

The girl I work with today had a dilemma. She and her boy had been going out only a few months and now he was proving to be uninterested in her blaming it in college work. A couple weeks before today she had said to me that she sent him a text message to check in with him, see how everything was,... Sign in to see full entry.

Service with a Passive Agressive Smile

Nothing makes you hate people more than working in the service industry. Nothing makes you want to curse yourself for not taking a sick day than a customer who thinks they are completely right and you, the sales person, is a compulsive liar.Let me tell you this now. I may get paid to smile, I don't... Sign in to see full entry.

Interested?

Book update: the agent in NY is interested. I feel nauseous because of that. It's only the beginning and I may need to try and try again but this is the furthest I have ever come and hope that the manuscript will no longer just be sitting there collecting dust. Those 500 hundred words took, oh...a... Sign in to see full entry.
