• Where in the world have I been?

    OK… so I haven’t been very good at this bloggy thing. What have I been doing?

     

    Lets see…..

    • I finished editing my book! YAY!!! That’s a big deal.
    • I finished writing the query for my book. This is what I will use to submit my book to agents for their consideration. It only took about 25 rewrites, but I think it’s solid now.
    • I entered my query in a few contests and got a few honorable mentions from some notable agents. What did that earn me? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! But at least I know I’m on the right track.
    • Did I mention I finished editing my book???
    • Driving. A lot. My kids attend a camp that is one hour away from our house. So between my husband and I, we have to drive 1 hour each way to drop them off and pick them up from camp. Sometimes there’s traffic which makes it doubly bad.
    • Driving. Even more. My parents have a lovely summer home in the Poconos, right on the lake. My children think this place is nearly as cool as Disney World. So we’ve been going up there on the weekends. It’s great fun, but 3 hours of driving each way.

    Here’s a picture of me and my boys by the lake in the Poconos. Isn’t it pretty?

    • More driving. My oldest son is a huge civil war buff. We promised him some trips to civil war historic sites. We visited Gettysburg a few weeks ago (very cool), and we are about to visit Antietam and Harper’s Ferry. I swear, my next book will be a historical fiction based on the civil war. The ideas are baking as I write this.
    • Working a full time job. Yes, I do work. Full time.
    • Did I mention, I finished editing my book?

    So yeah, that’s what I’ve been up to this summer. I haven’t been blogging all that much, but I’ve been rather busy. How about you? How is everyone’s summer going?
