The Who’s Who of Matt McKinnell has left my computer. Well, hopefully it’s still there but a copy of the full mss is now winging its way through cyberspace to editor, Lucy Gilmour! If it had gone via snail mail, I’d have kissed it a lucky good-bye…
The title of this post is I suppose a play on words (is that what I mean? I am so very sleep deprived.)
I think I finished my mss JUST in time. You see it was my birthday on Sunday and my DH gave me a Wii and a Wii-Fit. I’ve always been adamently against computer/video games – don’t see the point – but I’d read on a few writing blogs about the Wii-Fit and it sounded fascinating. Must have dropped enough hints because early Sunday morning my three big men (baby was asleep) piled two big boxes on the bed next to me, eager smiles almost splitting their faces. I unwrapped and joined them in the silly grinning!
I’m editing. Hopefully I’m on almost the last read through and edit of WWMM before I send it off on its own in cyberspace to M&B.
I know we’re almost nine days into 2009 and I’m way behing the times on New Year’s resolutions, but really… I have NO time at the moment. Have been trying to catch up on sleep and edit WWMM at the same time as doing all life’s other necessities. But enough on the excuses…. I’m not making resolutions exactly, just goals of things I’d like to achieve by the end of this year. Of course, I’d like to be published but that’s not something I have total control over, so that’s not on the list.
If time and baby permits, I plan on doing a host of New Year posts – goals for 2009, reflections on things I loved/favourites in 2008 and of course, starting with a list of the books I read in 2008. Here tis…
