I did it! I did it at laaaaaaaaaaaaast!
Yes, it took me ages but I have finally (FINALLY) sent Slippers & Chains to Breathless Press. I did it late last week and spent only a little time trying to keep my fingers from shaking. I have, however, despite receiving the auto response telling me that my submission had been received, been checking my email every day. Sometimes twice a day. Okay three times. … five times. o.O
Yes, I know I won’t get a response for weeks (four weeks at the earliest) but I can’t help it. I’m so excited I could burst!
I know I should pin all my hopes it this one submission (especially since it’s the first of its nature) and I certainly shouldn’t stop working. But for now I’m just enjoying the buzz of knowing that I’ve finally done it.
Though now I’ve done that I really should be looking into the rest of the Meeting Each Other series. I would love for it to be done by the end of the year and I need to finish that before I start on anything else. Ugh.
Guess the best way to do that is to look into my goals, right? 😉
Following the success of last week (!) I want to push myself a bit more. I want to keep pushing towards achieving the goals set out at the start of the year and be clear about where I want to be at year’s end. After all, there’s only a week or two more before I need to sum up what I’ve done in the last six months and see if I’m on the right track.
~Finish up my synopsis for Slippers & Chains
Done. With bells on. ^_^
~Send Slippers & Chains to Breathless Press.
Done. Finally. Put to bed, laid to rest, whatever you want to call it; the submission has been made and, insofar as this press, there’s nothing more I can do. Phew!
Look at where I last left Eric & Morgan (Meeting Each Other 4) and see what needs to be done
Look at where I left production on the solo website and plan how best to proceed it
Look where I left Raven’s Diary and see what needs to be done to ensure that newsletter subscribers get their monthly update.
I really feel like I’m back to normal now. I was able to pick up the Sprogs yesterday with no trouble and do some pretty serious marching up and down the hill with heavy bags, pram and children. I’m still not ready to face the hits of the flack track on my skates, but I can certainly go back and do some gentle skating by the end of the month.
That coupled with the Slippers & Chains submission have made me a very happy woman. How are you lot getting on? 🙂
