Catch up

So this posting every Monday, I'm struggling with it.  If you couldn't tell.  The last month has been nuts. 

I got the feedback from my critique group.  It was fantastic.  I love my group.  They're truly, as critique groups go, hell, as human beings go, stellar. 

Based on their suggestions, I revised for almost three weeks, then submitted Seeds to the agent.  I haven't heard anything from her yet, but, considering her busyness level, I expected that and truth be told I don't mind a bit. I sort of feel like someone on death row who's been granted a stay of execution.  I'm just so terrified she won't like it.

A week after I sent the manuscript I traveled to Idaho to visit my family and stayed there for two weeks.  I had a houseguest the following week and the week after that I spent trying to adjust to 'normal' life again.

I've been popping into all of your blogs, but haven't left any comments. I hope to get back to commenting on a regular basis now that things have slowed down a bit.  I also hope to get back to weekly postings.  I hope everyone's writing is going well and that you all have something (or several somethings) fantastically fun planned for your summer.

Angie Paxton!! Hello there! Yay for your fabulous critique group!! I love that you've got such a great supportive group! I have everything crossed for you that your agent will fall in love with your submission! Of course she will - you worked so so so hard on it!! Yay!! I can't wait to watch these writerly seeds grow into mighty published oaks of novels!!

Take care

Hey Angie,
Good luck on the revised manuscript.
I've been very lax on visiting my blog buddies. It is my intention to get on the stick and do right by my friends.
Take care and keep on writing.

Old Kitty, as always I love hearing from you. Your enthusiasm and support always brings a smile to my face.

Jen, hi! Thanks for stopping by. I don't know if Seeds will get published, but if it does, I promise I'll get a copy to you ASAP.

Life 101, thanks so much for the follow. I've returned the favor. I poked around on your blog and really enjoyed what I read. I was born and raised in the country and some of your posts took me back to waking up on my parents farm, birdsong and the smell of rain pouring in through my open window. It was a great trip down memory lane.
