Friday Randomness

This has been a really long week and I don’t know why. I did accomplish lots though.

For instance, I went through the first 114 pages of my novel twice this week considering the comments of two beta readers. Each time I sift through and catch those typos and awkward sentences I get more and more excited. The end MUST be getting closer each time. My goal is to have this thing out again in the slush piles by the end of June. (My dental hygienist gave me six months to bring her some positive news.)

Which brings me to my second thought. I love that people know I’ve written a book that I’m hoping to get published. I’m very lucky to be surrounded by people like those at my dentist who are excited for me even though they haven’t read a word of the book. They hope I make it. I hope I don’t disappoint them.


Don’t forget that the critique blog Unicorn Bell will be live/up and running/whatever you call it on MONDAY the 23rd.  Head over now to follow and fill out the survey to help us know what you would like to see/participate in on the blog.

You can also check out the other contributors: Carol aka Huntress and Marcy.

Is it a full moon tonight? I passed two police cars and two ambulances in a three mile stretch of road on the way home this morning. What’s going on?

Oh, and I heard the weirdest song on the Weekend Kickoff on the radio. It’s this thing they do on Kiss 95.1 here in the NC/SC area. Anyway, it just made me laugh. I apologize if this is your favorite song ever, but…


Now here’s one I like. When I hear it I think of romance novels and how it just can’t work out in the beginning.

“We’re like fire and gasoline,
I’m no good for you, Your no good for me.
We only bring each other tears and sorrow
But tonight I’m gunna love you like theres no Tomorrow.”

  1. If it does get published, tell your dentist to leave a few copies in the waiting room!

  2. If it does, I'm setting up a booth at his summer health fair! Reading is healthy, right!

  3. Sounds like you are doing really well Charity. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

  4. As I go through the suggestions of my critique partners and expand on my manuscript, I get excited as well. And I think the full moon was earlier this week. Leftover weirdos?

  5. Ooh the end of June isn't far away. How exciting! Best of luck with your fine tuning! 🙂
