Birth of a Novel February 20th

Sorry, no pics today. I'm still computerless. :( So, I'm keeping this post short and sweet:

  • The part arrived. It's been tested and it works. He just has to put the computer back together and hand it to me. ????
  • Even computerless, I'm filling pages and pages in a notebook. My goal was to add another 10,000 words to Faerie Wings by the end of February. I think I'm well on my way to reaching that.
  • Carter is surprising me with the silly little flaws he has. This is a good thing because he's becoming more real to me.
  • My February goals for Write1Sub1 have been flushed. Sort of. I did get one written and sent to my CP. The computer died right after that. Revisions have not been made and I don't have anything else ready to submit.
  • I'm a basket of nerves right now. Bidding on the Cupid Blind Speed Dating starts in an hour and a half. I'm entry #41. Only the undercover agents can make comments, so if you visit, come back here to let me know what you think. What if no one bids on SENDEK? I can't help but get my hopes up.
  • Thursday is the day that the first round of ABNA ends and those going forward are announced. I actually had a conversation with hubby asking what I should do if I won ABNA and got an offer from an agent. See, no matter how hard I try not to set myself up for crushing blows of failure I can't help it!
  • Small publisher X has had my full MS for about 3 weeks. I sent it the day BEFORE the computer died.

I feel like something is going to happen this week. But what will it be? And will I be crushed when nothing happens?

  6. I predict you will find great success but remain humble Charity even with all of J.K. Rowling's adoring fans and the moneys.

  7. Well, day one is almost at an end. No bids, but the competition is stiff. There are a lot of great entries.
