It’s been busy around here.  I am entering into my final week of work (yikes!) before I am finished my contract, and am thus unemployed =(  I have some prospects, so it is not dreadfully dire, but it has been fairly stressful, and I’ve been picking up extra shifts to bump up that final pay!  And thus, I’ve had less time to get my brain working on other stuff, such as writing blog posts (boo).  I am hoping to pick it up again, soon.  And after this next week, I’ll have a least a little time off, so I will definitely focus on the blog then!

In other news, I’ve finished polishing my YA fantasy/sort of fairy-tale retelling, and I’ve begun querying again!  So here’s hoping for more success this time around!

Also, week one of GUTGAA has completed. I didn’t enter into the pitch polish, but I want to congratulate everyone who entered and got through!  I am looking forward to more upcoming GUTGAA events soon, =)

Other than that, I’m excited about the changing season.  I am not a big summer person.  I like it reasonably enough, but I am always excited for the fall’s approach.  And being that it is already nearly mid-September, the season of holidays is fast approaching.  Thanksgiving (here in Canada) is right around the corner!

I hope everyone else is enjoying their September

  1. Congrats on finishing your MS polish. That's always the worst part. Good luck with a new job, and of course, with querying again!

    I'm so jealous. I miss fall. We used to live in Pennsylvania, and the mountains were as beautiful as the pic you posted. We moved to GA about six years ago and I haven't seen fall since. It used to be my favorite season. 🙁

    Congrats on getting your query ready. Are you going to take place in the Pitch Polish Blog Hop?

    Where's my mug of hot apple cider? Beautiful picture. Can't wait until the trees start turning.

    Congratulations on your MS and I'll cross my fingers for you on the querying. Good luck!

    Yes! I am getting in the Fall mood for sure…bought some apples to make an apple pie sometime this week!

    Thanks everyone for your well wishes! As brutal as querying can be, it's always so much fun to finish up and get to that stage.

    I don't think that I will be posting my query this week, but I am going to try and stop by some of the other blog hop blogs, to see if I can offer anything!
