Peculiar trends

It's a new week! Okay--officially it started yesterday, but I don't count the holidays.

It's a new week and anything can happen. I had a wild ride last week and I look forward to an exciting one this week.

Already today I heard from Amy at Peculiar People books. (check out my link) I hadn't heard anything in awhile as she has been ill. She is back on track and working on the edits for the stories that will appear in it.

I've seen that happen on a few of the projects I've had stories accepted in. I have been waiting awhile on two other books but last word I received is they had an editor.

Projects take time but that's the exciting part of writing. I never know when I will hear. If I submit enough places, one day I'll open my email and there it is---the acceptance I have been waiting for!

What will happen this week? Do you start it with excitement or a sense of dread? I hope with anticipation--especially if you are writing and sending.

Please let me know what happens in your writing world this week!! I'll post it here.

I like the anticipation of a new week, too. I'm immersed in an edit of my fiction ms, and waiting for a couple responses for material sent to lit. journals. So all's quiet at the moment ...

My writing consists of the med. transcription I do all day........snore!!!!

You have inspired me, though, to dig out two of my children's manuscripts and try again with those. I admit my efforts at publishing them were half hearted at best.

Yes, the waiting - the waiting! And sometimes after long waiting, there is a "no" - but, when that yes comes - ah...nice!

Thanks for stopping by the YOG blog *smiling*

Glad you heard from Amy! As for me, I don't really have much out there to here back on. I have entered a couple of contests, though. Just don't think I'll be hearing back THIS week. But that's ok. I've got enough to keep me busy until I do. LOL.
Looking forward to hearing how things go for you!

No wonder I'm not hearing back...I don't know how to spell. I meant HEAR back on, not HERE back on. Sorry...I got "enter" happy for a minute there.
