Pitching a story.

I did it.
I pitched my story to another author for a contest she is holding.
Donna Alward. I found her webpage by chance--or no, through my a CP--and I hate to say, I haven't even read one of her books...yet. I will. It wouldn't be right not to. :)
The contest closes at the end of the month.
I'll let you know what happens.

I do things on the spur of the moment...alot.
this was one of those moments. No editing, no researching. Just throw something together and shoot an email. I must be nuts. [Time will tell]

It's snowing again on the Plains.
We're all cuddled up in our home, enjoying the winter weather...
I think I finally figured out what to do about exercising.
I'm going to try tomorrow, using our little Vehicle DVD player while I'm on the treadmill.
Hopefully that stupid thing isn't slipping on it's belts...tensioner needs some work.

My manuscript is revised and completed through chapter five. You could say six, but I would like to get a few more crits before I move on. I've done my own revisions through chapter thirteen...and have a rewrite ready for thirteen when I submit the original and my CPs holler that it's BAD! VERY BAD! LOL That never happens, btw. But I'm pretty worried about that chapter cuz it has a love scene in it...and maybe it's too soon. *eyeroll* Anyhoo. We shall see what they say, when they type it. :D

Thanks for stopping by.
See ya around.
