I have a new goal!

…thanks to Geri for sending me the info on the call for anthology submissions for Samhain.

Theme: Angels! And, just take a wild guess at what I am working on at the present time? Yep, you got it!

And it’s not due until November 1!

Okay, here’s the plan:

By Monday, June 13 – have storyline finished.

By September 30, have 30,000 words completed.

October 31 – have critiques and revisons done.

November 1 – send that completed, polished puppy off to the publisher.

I can do it…I can do it…

Gasp! It feels just as scary to do this as it was to do my Faerie story.

I can do it…I can do it…

On another note, hope everyone had a wonderful fourth of July. Was busy in the morning, but that afternoon feasted on GW’s ribs and then rolled ourselves over to The Chair for an evening of reading, watching fireworks on TV, talking, and laughing. Was too hot to trek outdoors to play for anything more than a late evening stroll around the neighborhood on Sunday after running errands such as grocery shopping and, of course, a quick visit to one of our favorite tool shops and then on to the mall for a few things I needed. I got an urge to buy The Four Seasons Greatest Hits (Franki Valli NOT Uvaldi like Brenda first thought, LOL which I am still not sure who that is) to add to my iPod and now I have a rockin’ folder with Oldie but Goodies that has approximately 115 songs ranging from the 50′s to the 80′s. I have over 900 songs total on my iPod and I love it, love it, love it!

Just give me my iPod and my netbook and I can stay out of trouble for hours. Most of the time.

Looks like time to eat dinner. BTW, the roasted chicken was fab last week! And very healthy. I gave the recipe to a friend and she also said her family loved it.

Stay cool!

Snorting and laughing here. Vivaldi NOT Uvaldi. That’s a small town in theTexas Hill Country. Next time you visit, I see you need a little education in classical music. Although, I read (probably a Readers Digest) where a guy asked the teenaged clerk at a music store where the classical section was and got a vacant stare and “”You mean, like, the Elvis Presley section?
