Back to Work, Please!

Stop surfing, blogging, and watching CSI/Rodeo. Get back to work!

If you're wondering, "what's with your cat's face?" - she's a tortoise-shell.
Also known as "tortie". Here, you can learn about her genetic freakitude.

Her coloring is such that she appears to have two cream-coloured eyebrows which give her a look of perpetual worry. That's why I added the "please" in the title. She doesn't look very aggressive, does she?

And for all you dog people, yes, of course I love dogs too. One day I'll be mature enough to own one.


I am currently following the advice from chapter one of The First Five Pages: A Writer's Guide to Staying Out of the Rejection Pile. It's by Noah Lukeman. It has exercises at the end of each chapter to apply to your manuscript. I'll keep you posted.

Did you know some rodeo guys wear helmets instead of cowboy hats now? Ok, ok, going...

Hi Julia

Glad you like my website. I had such a blast building it.

I'll post my thoughts on the critique service on eH. (hopefully they don't make me cry! ;o))

Good luck on finding a good CP. I found mine on eH's thread. It took some time but we're a great fit.

Thanks, Elle! I'm sure they'll be "constructive", if not outright complimentary! I'll keep looking for a CP, but the ms isn't quite ready to send out. I'm about half-way through my first pass revisions.

Thanks for stopping by!
