FRIDAY STIR FRY - Ramblings on a cold February day

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   https://twitter.com/search?q=sochiproblems&src=tyah     Hilarious and sad all at the same time. Our Olympic athletes deserve better accommodations.

Enjoy your week!
