Put Up or Shut Up!

For months I’ve been talking about how I want to be a published author. I’ve been networking, taking online classes, and planning for the big day. Well, the time has come for me to put up or shut up. Today my agent sent over a list of recommended revisions I need to address before we submit my manuscript to Harlequin Medical Romance on April 30th. Of course, as luck would have it, today is also the day I got the middle finger of my right hand caught in a wrought iron railing and pulled off 2/3 of the nail. OUCH!

While a bulky bandage may slow me down, it will not stop me! For the next week, armed with Tylenol, extra gauze, and a positive attitude, I will be a revising machine. Unfortunatley, in order to focus fully on my task at hand, I plan to place significant limitations on my Internet activities.

Please come back for my next post at the end of the month.

Until then, may your days be productive and your nights filled with whatever makes you happy!

    Except when it comes to your writing….delegate!!! No cooking, doing dishes, walking Buddy (he'll understand…not). Your husband should be wiping your _ _ _.

    Sending you positive energy to get you through the next week and looking forward to hearing how you're doing on your next post.

    Ouch! Sorry about the finger. I've cut mine regularly due to my "chef" aspirations, so I can relate. I've learned that you really can type fast with 9 fingers, but there are letters that are harder than others.

    Hang in there and I'll be cheering you on with your revisions. YOU ARE ALMOST IN THE DOOR!! Woohoo!!

    I loved your posting profile (I was profile surfing. People who update go to the top of the pile and it's always interesting). I'm sorry to hear about your finger. 🙁

    Thanks for stopping by Liz and Jodi! The revisions are coming along, and my finger looks gross but feels much better.
