Storm #5 is due in today…this river of rain just doesn’t let up! I tried taking a walk yesterday when I thought the rainclouds were breaking up and ended up running home, soaked. We’ve been getting thunderstorms, too, which is very rare. A tornado was sighted, too!
Earthquakes we can handle. Thunderstorms?! Tornadoes?! Not so much.
I was speaking to a Moms Together group at church yesterday morning, and just as I quoted a comment Jesus had made, a bolt of thunder blasted the room! I thought that was kind of cool…a little reminder from Mother Nature about Who’s really in charge!
When I got home, I checked the mail and found a large manila envelope with my favorite return address on it. In it was a signed, sealed and delivered 3-book contract with Revell! It’s been in the works for a while, but I don’t like to announce anything until it’s a done deal.
As soon as I looked through the contracts, I checked my e-mail and there was one from my editor informing me that deadlines on some other writing projects have been moved. Up. Way, way up.
So I did what any logical writer with pressing deadlines would do. I baked cookies and made a big batch of granola.
I'm sorry you are feeling the pressure, but that's happy news for your hungry readers!
(Speaking of hungry, can I have one of your cookies?!)
Congratulations! Sooooo proud of you!
