>I’ve been gone waayy tooo long!

>I’ve got to get on top of this! But inmy defense… I’m lazy…NO!

I have been working with my husband trying to get our home set up and remodeled, though. We have 2.5 rooms sort of finished, I have a somewhat-working kitchen now (with running water!). We were fortunate to have been offered some cabinets from an old friend’s home. It is being demolished and his daughter (he passed in Dec, 04) gave us the chance to pull the 50-75 year old, hand made by him, cabinets from it. Now we just have to finish the sheet rocking. Another contact has a whole roll of med lap carpet he got for his house and decided not to put in at the time. Now my husband has completely remodeled his house and the (rose/mauve) carpet won’t match the new schemes. He offered it to us at half the cost he paid 2 years ago. That will be the final step in reno later this year, well, that and the tile or Pergo flooring where carpet won’t be.

Anyway, I have been continuously working on the manuscript I pitched in March. I’m a bit slow on writing these days with the remodel and babysitting 2 lively tykes. The ‘baby’ is now 9 months old and trying to start walking. She actually took her first step about 2 weeks ago. So they keep me on my toes. Writing has to be fitted in between these demands so I either use my computer time in writing and edits, or here telling everyone how I’m writing, when in actuality you are reading this- and, therefor, know I’m obviously NOT in the ms! Lol

I played around yesterday with the help of one daughter and made a myspace finally. Joining in with many other authors who can be found there. Sharon Sala, Chelle Sandell, Brooke Taylor, Sela Carsen- just to name a few established, newly published, and up and coming like myself.

I have to say I’m very proud to be a member of OKRWA! So many of our group are making way in contests, getting agents and getting published for the first time. And these are just this year I’m talking about since I only joined in February! Jordan Dane just had her first book come out in March- and it’s a 3-book series! Gena Showalter made NYT Best Seller list to sit next to Sharon Sala (who is a sweetheart and always a NYTBS)! Robin Perini is a double finalist in the 2008 TARA contest. There’s just so much going on in this group! I love them all.
Ok I have sooo many Hang Out links I need to get listed in this page. Below are just a few that I managed to list when I started this page. I AM going to get this thing going! I am also in the process of getting information together so my brother can get my web page finished (or at least close). That’s my goal for this summer. To get these things finished along with submitting my Work-In-Progress (WIP) to Silhouette Special Edition. I hope to have another ready to go by the end of the year as well, but I’m not sure where it’s home might be at this time. I’m considering ePub for it to test those waters.

So– Back to work!
