4. Attended the Salute to Supernatural in New Jersey.

5. Hugged Matt Cohen.

6. Got a job.

7. Picked up an editing client.

9. Submitted multiple projects to agents and editors.

10. Compiled 3 RWR columns.

11. Sold a novella:

I love that list, especially #15! And wow, busy lady!

I'm watching Sarah Connor Chronicles on Netflix--I forgot where I left off so I'm starting from the beginning.

Well, #12 is near and dear to my heart since my daughter did the bookcover. But I'm totally thrilled about #15!! Congratulations!!

Cindy Procter-King said...

Wow, you're selling up a storm!!! Congratulations!

So far this summer I've:

- glommed Mad Men so I could start with the new season
- tried glomming Deadwood. Gave up.
- Began glomming Breaking Bad, but it's always out of the video store.
- Still revising an ST
- Doing edits on my next cindypk release

- painting, painting, and more painting. Right now I'm on a break.

Thanks, MJ! I loved that show, especially after Derek Reese showed up. Wowza!

Thanks, Shannon, I'm excited to be joining you all! :)

Your daughter rocks the casbah, Lisa! :) Thanks for everything!

Thanks, Cindy! I think you missed something on that list. Peru is kind of a huge "thing you did." :) Good luck with the revisions!

LOL, thanks, Sue! :)
