Okay, its time for a massive update for my blog today.  I have added another watch dog, Coach Taylor (Kyle Chandler) from Friday Night Lights.  He just won (finally) the Emmy for Friday Night Lights.  If you haven’t watched this show, I highly recommend it.  You don’t even have to like football to really like the show.  I’m still in the grieving process that the show is over.

I have signed up for NaNoWriMo this year.  I plan on using the story that I’m working on for a writing class.  The writing class is with Delilah Devlin and Elle James (Myla Jackson) called Plot Bootcamp.  Great class so if you ever have a chance to take it, please do.  Wish me luck and check back in November for my updates on that.

Still waiting on whether I made the cut for the anthology.  I will found out in October whether I did or not.  I pray I did.  I’m very proud of my story but if it doesn’t cut it, I do have another place for it.  Rejection is part of the process, right?

I have also entered a writing contest and I should know the outcome in October, too.  More nervous about this one because if chosen, I will get to pitch the whole book to an editor.  Yikes.  

Starting next month, I will be guest blogging on a couple of authors blogs and I will let you know when and where.  Its been fun to guest blog.  Its amazing that people actual want me to talk.  If you really know me, this isn’t a problem for me.  LOL!

Anyway…please sign up for email alerts on my blog.  I would be forever grateful.  And if not, that’s cool, too.  Ooo, also, I hate my progress meters.  Any help in this area would be greatly appreciated.

Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose….the motto of Friday Night Lights and one that I will be remembering during my writing journey in the next few months. 



I’m sure that this is nothing new for you authors but I hate waiting to see if someone likes my stuff or not.  I realize that the editor has to read all the subs, she what she likes, what to reject, and if a story deserves a shot with some polishing.

Phew…I’ve never waited before and the bad thing is, I’m not nervous for the rejection, if it comes.  I just want to know so I can either be excited or take my original story and expand it/polish it up and submit it somewhere else.
