THE END!!!!!

the end

That's right. At 12:09 Monday morning I typed the words every writer yearns for. This is my 4th completed manuscript but I think the thrill is still the same.

Spoiled Rotten is 90,000 plus words of chicklit-arama. (Is that a category?) I guess if I had to narrow it down it's a Chick Lit Mystery. You could also categorize it as a romance that breaks ALL the rules.

AND...the best part is I have an editor from a big-time New York publisher who wants it e-mailed to her ASAP.

The bad news? It still needs some polishing.

That's why I've got to run!

Oooohhh, good luck with the book!

And welcome back, long time no see. How are the spewing lions?

How wonderful! And what a relief, I'm sure. But if you're like me (few are, I realize), the "polishing" may take a while. Hope not -- I'm anxious for this multi-book deal to go through on a pre-empt for HUGE bucks! Everything's crossed for ya!

The spewing lions are the earrings for my pool's outfit...they just make it!

Regarding your husband's DDAS, I just had to respond to that under your comment, as follows:

"Yes, clearly that condition is gender-specific. Most women I know will answer MANY questions that were not only not heard, but never asked. This results in what is perceived by the DDAS-afflicted male as meaningless chatter, which further exacerbates his tendency to not listen.

A vicious cycle."

Thought you'd want to know...

No, Bill, evidently they want it darn near perfect when they buy it...what's this world coming to?

Christina said...
