Okay this is weird...

I was completely getting antsy about some works I have circulating (not to mention the upcoming release of CC, woo hoo!) and then my impatience started to kick in. I wandered over to the sites that have the writing tip html I grabbed for my writer page on my site and I got this for yesterday:


"As you wait for the editor's response (which often feels like forever), submit your book or magazine ideas simultaneously."


Then this one for today:


"Instead of beating a path to the mailbox looking for the editor to respond, begin other projects and get more writing into the market."

*double gasp*

You're trying to tell me something, aren't you little writer's tip box o' wisdom?

All of this after opening a fortune cookie with a cryptic message within it's sweet, crunchy jaws. Hmmm. I'm not superstitious by any means, but I definitely believe in a higher power who showers signs down once in a while.

And if it wasn't the dead end of night/morning, I would pop in the Shyamalan movie of the same name (but I won't because I'll never get to sleep once I hear those creepy alien clicking sounds).

But I shall continue to heed the little orange writer box of wisdom and work on my WIPS. The good news? Just a day ago I finished the first draft of a novella I've been struggling with for a while. AND I went over my goal word count to boot! WOO HOO! I have an idea for how I want to go about editing it, but for the rest of the weekend...I shall relax. :-)

Your double gasp message is right on. Once something is mailed out, you can't do anything about it. It's time to move on to the next project.

Write on! Write on!! Keep writing on!!!

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
