Lots O' Little Things

Mills & Boon Contest- I'm ready for it to be over. There are almost 500 entries and I have gone from 30s & 40s back up to #15 in a matter of hours. I spend WAY too much time on this site. Of course, I'd LOVE to make it to the 2nd round! The 10 finalists (yes, only 10 finalists!) will be notified next weekend and announced next Monday.

Partner- I drafted the synopsis yesterday and revised it this morning. It sucks, but not as much as it sucked last night before I went to bed. Luckily a lovely and talented friend is going to critique it for me. Thanks, Rebecca! Later today I'm going to start the revisions my CP sent me. She likes my changes and has some KILLER suggestions to take the story from good to great. All in all, I'm on target to sent it to NYC at the end of this week! I'm aiming for Friday.

Day job- As suspected, there was a glitch in my substitute teacher application and they had been sitting on my paperwork until they received my emails last week. I'm now scheduled to be first into the system tomorrow morning. Yay! I'll actually start working again! Of course, I'm still looking and applying for anything else I can get.

Sports- As much as I love football and enjoy getting together with friends and family to watch college football games, I've realized that if I could only watch one sport from now on it would be soccer. I am a soccer fanatic. I love me some English soccer!

You've been a bit quiet. I wondered how things were going. Thank goodness the NV contest ends today. 718 entries at this point. Yikes! I still think you've got a shot at the top 10. But I'm sure if they don't pick you, an editor will be in touch!!

Cat, I'm working on revisions! They're going to kill me, I think!
