#2 Edit and a Great new word

I just sent back another edit yesterday or so and let my editor know I was technologically deficient. She put a new word in my vocabulary that I think is hilarious: "technotard." It perfectly depicts my computer abilities. That one's going into my spell-check dictionary!

A Week in the Day of a Writer

I think being a writer is a lot like my old profession, being a firefighter. Things plug along forever; an unending plodding toward a hope to make a difference. Then, all of a sudden, you find yourself up to your ears in chaos, trying to keep your nose above water. Editors pull you and encourage you to hone your story; you're trying to hawk your self-published work; and then there's life itself that has no particular regard for your professional priorities. This could drive a man to get old, but I love it! Hope all of you have a great weekend!

It's Been A Busy Week

I just registered for the Pacific Northwest Writers Association conference in July in Sea-Tac. It should be another great one this year, but it'll be even better knowing that I met my future publisher there last year and several great people since. I'm looking forward to it!

Just sent back my first edit of Buffalo Hump to my editor. Wow! She's putting me through my paces. I think I'm gonna have to eat my Wheaties to keep up with her!

I have been assigned an editor from Champagne Books for Buffalo Hump today. She sounds enthusiatic! That's always a good sign!

Cinco de Mayo

Why is it that the only ones who truly celebrate the 'holiday' are Americans? I guess we just like great excuses to party!

A Good Day!

Had a great time with the people at Cafe Noir in Silverdale, WA. Very well received and very gracious hosts!
