Just a short post to say that everything is very good. Moving in a positive direction. Very positive. But congrats are definitely not in order yet.I have been advised (by my husband) to be quiet until I know for sure. That won’t be until next month. So until then I will be silent (not an easy task) […]

sad sinking feeling of doom

Posted on Mar 27, 2008 at 7:21 pm

I am so confused. Just got an email from my agent saying she wasn’t thrilled with the response but she would keep me updated. She had forwarded me an email from the editor simply saying that she would like to chat today about the book. And they couldn’t have spoken on the phone because I […]

 A friend showed me this and I wanted to upload it to my livejournal.  The music alone will break your heart.

Happy Purim!!

It’s been a great one. Dancing, costumes, loud music and fried food. What else can one ask for? And my closest friend got engaged today! I am her official wedding planner and cook for the reception. God, I hope they are setting the date after Passover. Otherwise I probably won’t be sleeping for a while. […]

not as crazy as you’d think

Posted on Mar 19, 2008 at 3:48 pm

 I have only checked about three times today. So. Conquering the crazy demons is always satisfying. Spent the rest of the day running errands, getting ready for the holiday.  Also I want to mention that the film Gone Baby Gone is one of the best I have ever seen.  Completely not what I expected.

erm.. nothing yet but something lurking?

This may be the mother of all “nothing” posts but I felt compelled.  Just received an email from my agent letting me know that she had written to the editor asking for an update before next week (when she will leaving for a conference).  So I anticipate that tomorrow will be another anxious day. If anyone […]

Does it look like I care?

Posted on Mar 5, 2008 at 2:41 pm

So now it’s done.I thinkI went through the whole thing (the new first eight chapters) with the “who cares anyway” attitude and somehow six pages fell out. Many adjectives, big words that didn’t communicate anything except that I know English, and complex Victorian speech patterns came away to reveal a readable novel. Not that I’m knocking 1890 or […]

or not….

Posted on Mar 4, 2008 at 4:47 pm

My agent looked it over and suggested some tightening before sending it back to the editor. so back to the computer. Maybe I would get more done if I didn’t feel compelled to record every tiny development in my blog Time to oil the “delete” button *sigh*

Posted on Mar 3, 2008 at 10:53 pm

 And now to wait… and rock back and forth like a crazy person.I know I had written that I was done last week but I hadn’t expected my husband to say, “The beginning is uninspired and I have no idea what is driving your character.”so this week I tore out some more hair, rewrote the beginning […]
