First off, I got a new pen. I know you’re very excited.
I propped it up on a mechanical pencil so it could catch some light. It’s from my good friend Pattie who always aids in my addictions.
Also, my husband and I went bed-shopping today. Next week is our 15-yr wedding anniversary, and we really wanted to spoil ourselves. We found one we really like, but the store can’t have it to us until mid-July (like most things in their store), and I was a bit disappointed. Naturally, this led me to thoughts about writing, about really really wanting something and having to walk away empty-handed time and again. To all of you submitting and getting rejected out there, I salute you. I know your pain.
On that same thread, I did hear a bit of good news. A story I submitted to a magazine is being held over for the senior editor to look at. I’m not getting my hopes up too high, though. I’ve been at this stage before. Still, even after all this time, it’s pretty exciting. Put on your good-luck hats.
Got anything you want right now but really can’t have? (Except publication for those unpublished. ^_^) Got any really good news to share about getting something you’ve wanted? Doesn’t have to be material. It can be as abstract as peace of mind. Wow, come to think of it, that would be a lot harder to just up and get….
