Beautiful Sunday

My manuscript is completely revised, minus the last few lines. Those always give me trouble. It's like I want it to end perfectly and just can't think of how to word it. But it will be finished by tomorrow morning, as that is when I have set my goal to send it in. I'm excited about this venture and more than a little nervous!

Are any of you ready to send anything out?

Have a beautiful Sunday!

Keep Laughing

Writing can be a sometimes fun, exciting, lonely, or frustrating activity. Some days nothing seems to go right no matter what we try. So, it should make all of us feel better to know that the most famous beagle in the world, also a struggling writer, can identify with all of our emotions:).I've had this book for a few days and have enjoyed it very much. I also love the fact that so many famous authors took the time to write a few pages addressing some of Snoopy's problems and share their own solutions to them.

Happy reading!

It's so hard to believe that August is here. Summer is passing by so fast. It seems that it was just June a week or so ago.

My rose campions (pictured above) are still blooming! They are only supposed to bloom in early summer, but the grouping of them I have in a shady area are still giving me pretty flowers.

I've almost finished with my book revisions and the partial to be sent in is complete. I'll be sending it next week.

I also have another project ready to send in to a contest. It will be mailed later this week. I'm hoping for a couple of good critiques from this contest.

I hope all of you are enjoying these warm days.
