Busy week, busy weekend. It’s studio dance competition season, once again. So, yesterday was taxes and Girl Scout cookie selling, today was the first competition.
I’m letting the novel I completed last week “compost” for a bit, so I started working on another (longer) fairy tale. If I can pull this off, I should (should) be able to start publishing two new series this year.
Also this week, six rejections! Some are leftover from last year. I did send one back out again, but I suppose it’s time to start looking at a few more markets.
I also worked through some graphic design classes as well. And that’s it. I’m just feeling amazingly accomplished for getting the taxes done that I may have to curl up and spend the rest of the day reading.

I love hearing about what people are reading — thanks so much!
