Proposal

Wow--well I sent off a proposal, 3 chapters and a synopsis to Triskelion today. Fingers crossed. Never done it this way before--always written the book first in the past and tried to sell that. Scary feeling because I am such a slow writer--working to a deadline might destroy my creativity, but this is how the industry works and I must work with it. Wish me luck :)

And wish me luck weeding today. I have a mission to pull dandelions and plant other wildflowers instead--much to my DD's disappointment.

Oh to be so easily pleased :)

PS--Clean air day today. See if you can leave the car at home. And not mow the lawn. And definitely don't fly anywhere!!

Lovely picture! Not my favourite of his---you can barely see his gorgeous face---and I never liked him in that role. So much more sexier on Street Legal.

Good luck with the proposal, I'm sure they'll love it!

What picture? It wasn't there, just the little white box with the red "x" in it.

Good luck with the proposal and the weeding. If I were to do weeding in the back yard we wouldn't have any lawn.

Oh yeah, now it comes up. Sheesh. I only started getting into Jag towards the end of its run.

You see? He's clean, too. Wearing his dress whites and everything!

Fingers and toes and eyes and etc. crossed for your proposal, Toni! Great stuff! And YAY for you for trying out a new way to land a book!

I have a feeling that you'll do just fine with a deadline. :)

Peggy--I have a stock pile and will aim to please :)

Eve--weeding hasn't happened yet. DD has a friend over and DS is tired from getting up at 4 am from a nightmare--of course, then mom has to take him to the bathroom!! Why would I be tired??

Thanks for the vote of confidence and luck!! Here's hoping :)

Toni, crossing my fingers for you!! As for the weeding? Not my favorite chore, and like Eve, if I weeded my backyard half of it woulf be bare!

Loreth Anne White said...

Diane said...

Good luck with the submission and the weeding.

I confess the weeding didn't get done, but I had a nice day with DS anyway. He was too tired to do much but veg out on the sofa. I kept him company and read books about murderers!
