I'd Post... but

I am too busy trembling in FEAR! OMG. Fearless Readers: I have sent the Spiritcaster off to the four hardy souls who have agreed to crack open its digital pages and scan what is therein. **Deep breath** This is the first time I've ever gotten to this step. I'ma nervous. And sort of proud. And wondering where I go and what I read to learn how to write a synopsis... or drown my sorrows if the thing is one big giant mistake. :)

Oh, and I entered a Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes. You know. Cuz writing is the only job I would continue to do if I won Ten Million Dollars. And I figure the pressure of waiting to see if I win Ten Million Dollars will take my mind off the stress of waiting for betas!

So, I'm on track for my yearly goals. I didn't start the rewrite/finishing of Rabid Horses of Valdor on this day (I'm gonna work on that name, by the way - less melodramatic). But I have a three day weekend due to some scheduling changes at work, and I shall apply myself to having two - two hour writing sessions each day. I should make some serious headway. Oh, and watch The Proposal on Netflix again. I like Scarlet Johanson's hubby very much. That is all.


  1. Ahh, the joy of waiting. Good luck Bettielee.


  2. Good luck with your proof readers! This is a hard stage of the game, but you can get through it!

  3. Bettie, I know that your story is going to get wonderful reviews. It's hard to settle the nerves though, not sure anything will take care of it. (Even a big bottle of wine. Though it would be tasty.)

    Be proud of yourself, you did a fantastic job. It's great that your goals are on track! Keep up the wonderful work.

  4. Thank you all. Hinny is actually reading an unedited account. Poor creature. :) And I have a lot of coffee. :)

  5. Good for you on all accounts. Sending a book out to be read is exciting & scary! Also awesome you set some goals for yourself. The best thing you can do is keep writing to get your mind off it! :)
