Waiting... chew fingernails or start something new?

Okay, so the first thing is that when I chew nails they bleed. My mother despaired of me as a child, from the yucky polish to taking toys away she tried everything to get me to stop biting my nails. They would bleed at the edges and it would drive her insane. Then one day, I was about 13, for no reason at all... i stopped cold. And all that nail biting gave me nice strong nails.

But this subbing, querying thing has put all that in danger.

I know i need to write something else. I KNOW. But isn't wallowing so much easier?

My CP sold!!

After um, shall we say quite a few, years of trying one of my fab CPs sold today.

Yep, she got THE CALL!

To Special Edition. And I am so, so pleased for her. It's been a long road but she's nailed the line she was aiming for and it has paid off big time.

Congratulations Helen Lacey!


It is possible. It can happen!!

Loving my story

We've had an intense few weeks, my story and I. It's been emotional but having come through this latest lot of editing i hope we're closer than ever - to making it great.

I have to admit there were times when I could hardly bear to face it. Maybe we needed some time apart, maybe we needed to remember what brought us together in the first place. Through it all though the spark flickered.

And we're back in a good place.

What about you - is the story love always there?
