|I'm wearing a happy face, too|
Well, not my stupid knee. The doctor gave me a cortisone shot yesterday and the initial reaction included swelling and stiffness. But I'll give it some time.
No, I'm feeling good about my writing and about some tiny signs of progress.
I attended our Western Ohio Writers Association meeting last night. I took a story I'm thinking of submitting to a major anthology to our critique group and received a thumbs up/it's ready from everyone. And this is not a warm fuzzy, pat on the back type of critique group.
I also had a chance to talk with some authors whose stories were not selected for an upcoming anthology that will include one of mine. I know this sounds selfish and not at all supportive but these are writers whose work I like and respect so it gave my ego a nice boost.
The national writing contest I entered a story in just before Christmas has not yet announced their results so I'm still enjoying the sweet sense of possibility.
Oh, and I've found the perfect source for some research I need on a current WIP and he said he'll be happy to help me.
Okay, it doesn't rate up there with signing a three book deal, or finding an agent who adores my book but for today...it's enough.
How about you? Anything in your life giving you a boost today?
Thought for the Day:
I don't want to brag or make anyone jealous or anything, but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.
