Quick update

I can't believe I haven't posted in almost 2 months! Yikes. Well, I've been working like crazy. A couple of weeks ago, I got a revision letter from an editor!! I'm thrilled! But it came at about the same time I started a new teaching job at a local technical college, so I haven't had nearly the time I need for the writing. I've pretty much had only weekends. And of course, one of those we had a fall break trip with the family, and another of those I had my sister, hubby, and her hubby's father as company. They were two wonderful weekends, but not much writing time!

I did get through the revision--finally!! I cut the manuscript down to 60k words just like the editor asked. And it had to be a God thing, because I didn't worry about the count. I just made the changes she asked for, and when I was done, it was almost exactly 60k!! Now I'm reading through it for continuity and typos. All the cutting and moving things is a bit risky. I've got to make sure the new version is clean. Then I'll send it off!!

I'm really excited about this opportunity. All prayers would be appreciated!!

By the way, the teaching job is going great! I'm really enjoying it. It's just very time consuming this first time around. Next quarter will be much easier, I'm sure. I'm learing as I go, too. :)
