I got the BEST news today!
I e-mailed my ms to the requesting editor at M&B on Friday night.
I was expecting to hear sometime around SEPTEMBER.
In my inbox today sits a request for revisions!!!!!!! Five pages of them.
I am bouncing off the walls like Flubber. It's my first revision request!!! Everything today has exclamation points! Right now I'm choosing to ignore the flaws that will cause a full-on panic and am instead revelling in the wonderful things said about my story and writing. I can't handle reality just yet...I need to let the letter sit, percolate; I need to wind down, think about what she's asking and decide how I'm going to tackle it. Because people, I've gotta do this RIGHT.
I guess the word count on the WIP is going to sit still AGAIN....oh well...when stuff happens, it REALLY seems to happen!
I'm popping some cyber champagne to share with you all...this whole journey has sure gotten interesting the last few months...and I'm glad you've been here with me! It's ever so much better than talking to myself....
