FRIDAY STIR FRY - Ramblings on a cold February day

Mountain Climbing

I'm sick of winter. Enough said.

So, remember my last post? If not you can refresh your memory below. I was wondering what to do with my novel Beyond The Horizon. Well, I got my answer this week. I received a very nice response from an editor who suggested some revisions and then re-submit it to her. Yipee! No, it's not a contract, but it's closer then I've ever been. I've been reading it on my Kindle (yes you can download your work) and making notes this week. I'm a weekend novelist, so you get one guess what I'll be doing Saturday and Sunday. I'd like to get it close to re-submission. It might take another weekend, but I definitely plan on getting it back to her ASAP. Before she can change her mind!

On a different note: I finally paid my sales tax on my car along with late penalties, title transfer fees, plate transfer fees . . .  I didn't even get a kiss (if you know what I mean). Man, it was painful. But, it's done. I'm now legal. Whew!

I'm looking forward to the Olympics. And I'm loving this twitter feed     Hilarious and sad all at the same time. Our Olympic athletes deserve better accommodations.

Enjoy your week!


  1. Glad to hear about the R&R. But no other R&R for you this weekend. ;)

  2. Sounds good. I like what I have read of that. Before you hunker down for a writing weekend, come by Art Walk.

  3. I'm so excited for you! Big weekend ahead. Go, Wanda!

  4. All good things come to those who wait. Looks like a good start. Proud of you for hanging in there!

  5. Thanks to all of you for your kind words and for leaving a comment!

  6. It's a great sign when an editor takes the time to suggest ways to improve your work.

    1. Just hoping I can complete her suggestions. I'm working on it.

  7. So thrilled for the R *R request for you!! Best of best.
