Sorry I haven't posted for a while

My life, as ever, is in turmoil. Had to fly home to Los Angeles this week with one day's notice to be with my mom, who underwent a lumpectomy. The prognosis is good, but I wanted, and needed, to be with her when she went under. We'll know more about the next stage in her treatment in a few days. I had to do all of my classes on-line, using Blackboard, and grade essays while I waited in the hospital with her and at her house. Whew, that was a tough few days. Flew back home to discover that my husband's uncle, with whom he had a great relationship, passed away that morning. Now my DH will have to fly back to San Diego for the funeral next week.

The resulting turmoil has made it a bit difficult to post, needless to say.

I do, however, have some good news on the personal writing front. I got a follow-up request for a full, with revisions, on Dreamweaver from one of the agent packages I had recently sent out. So, as soon as I blast through the one-hundred or so essays I'm still catching up on grading due to my trip, I'll turn my attention to making those revisions and getting that puppy out!

Thieme, so sorry to hear about all the turmoil. Hugs to your husband and your mom as well as you. I'm glad you got some good news mixed in though. Good luck with those revisions.

Thanks, Trish!

This is the closest I've come to really catching an agent's interest, though I'm still waiting to hear back on my other request for a full that I sent in. Got my fingers and toes crossed on these...and also praying my mom's reports come back clean.

Good luck with the agent! I know Dreamweaver will sell - you've got the goods, sweetie! Hugs!

Thanks, Christine. I need all the encouragement I can get. The good news is my mom's reports came back clean. Yeah!
