Remember Me?

What a busy, hectic, madcap month it has been.

I'm NaNo-ing but my word count is dismally low. At least I surpassed last year's embarrassment of a word count. I wrote a few thousand words today and just needed a breather. I'll get back to it tonight.

I sent in a story submission called "Goldfield Has Gone To Hell" for a cowboy-Indian-zombie themed anthology and am awaiting a response. It's gonna be a looong weekend and I'll be hard-pressed to not check my email every five seconds. I hate surprises, so the waiting-for-an-acceptance/rejection part of writing kills me every time. Its a wonder I don't have raging ulcers by now. Anywho, don't get me wrong, the publisher is one of the speediest that I've ever encountered. Its just me thinking that it is utter garbage and second-guessing myself and my *ahem* writing skills.

Let's talk about sparkly things. No, not vampires. Jewelry. I'm doing a craft fair this weekend with my sister and peddling my handmade jewelry. Every time I show someone a particular style of bracelet, they buy it on the spot. That means I have to make at least 5 bracelets for this gig. And I'm still waiting on supplies for earrings. Sheeeeesh!

And, to make November go out on a happy note, my 20 year anniversary of being with the man of my dreams is on the 30th. In dog years thats....a lot of years.
