Happy Days

Yay! I'm getting stronger every single day.

Yay! I e-mailed the requested full on Tuesday and I LOVE the changes my CP suggested! The story is that much stronger. Usually I don't go back after a few months and revise anything. I'm too excited about the next story. But this time I reread the manuscript after being away from it for about 6 months and I was able to pick out quite a few more things that needed to be changed, things that I'd learned in the process of writing the current WIP.

Yay! I ordered my business cards for Nationals. I LOVE the ones I ordered. I went with Vista Print because it was easy, cheap and I've heard good things about them. The ones I got were listed under Premium business cards, but they seem to be having a sale right now. If you need cards, check Vista Print out! I'm hoping to get them before I leave on my trip, which reminds me...

Yay! One week from today I'll be boarding a plane to Ireland! I've got a kazillion things still to do before then, but I'm making lists and crossing things off as I get them done.

Yay! I'm sending off entries for two June contests. FP is pretty much retired from the contest loop now. It's done amazingly well and I may still enter it in a contest or two in the future, but I'm going to turn most of my attention on TCAFS. I love FP and believe in that wholeheartedly, but I really feel TCAFS kicks ass! I was rereading the opening pages for the contests I'm entering and it got me all fired up again to work on that story.

Yay! I'm on my 3rd Golden Claddagh entry. I'm hoping to return all 4 entries to the contest coordinator tonight or definitely by tomorrow. I read one entry that I absolutely LOVED. I got so caught up in the story I forgot I was supposed to be judging! I'll tell you which one it is once the finalists are announced because I'm SURE this one will final.

I finished my Golden Claddagh entries last weekend. I really do have to say that they were very good entries. One of was totally awesome. I wanted to read the rest.

I'm so jealous about your trip. LOL You must promise to take lots of pics to share on your blog!

I love weeks like that. I'm having one:)

Lexi said...

Nita, I'll definitely take lots of pics, but I don't have a clue how to put them on the computer! Perhaps my friend who is going to help me with a website in the summer will have pity on me and show me a thing or two about pictues as well.

Teri, I'm glad you're having a good week! You deserve a break!
