It’s a day closer…

As I get up and moving today, we are a day closer to whatevah comes next! Profound, I know! But see, I’m at a place where each step is a BIG’UN!
Waiting on one more read through (you know who you are!) and then the corrections and then…..

I mentioned yesterday about the ‘distraction’ that started all of this  – NaNoWriMo… November is National Novel Writing Month and they have a challenge each year – 50,000 words in 30 days – FROM SCRATCH – no cheating… Write a story! It’s this… just start typing and see where it goes. SWEET SURRENDER was ‘born’ from that challenge! I’ll just tell you that I hit SUBMIT with 52,934 words on Thanksgiving Day and… I’m a WINNER! November 1 to as soon as I know it’s ready… A BOOK!  IMAGINE what will come from the one I’ve been working on since 2003! ha! You’ll have to read the ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS when the book is released for ‘THE REST OF THE STORY’!

OK, since I’m not rich* and famous yet I guess I need to start thinking about…

The  J – O – B!

Be well friends.

Love, Barbara

P.S. – my friend Wanda gave me a pendant for Christmas that says “MUST BE CREATIVE OR THROW A HISSY FIT…  just sayin;…

* I’ve been told not to go into this thinking I’m the ‘next J.K. Rowling’…  But I bet SHE didn’t think she was either! ha!
