Magical Mondays - More Boob Wishes :)

Sorry for being such a blog slacker. I've been working the equivalent of three jobs lately, and it's hard to find time and/or energy for much these days. I've got my full-time job as a curriculum writer and editor, a part-time job as an editor with an erotic romance publisher, and I'm still trying to keep up with my eBay artwork. Add in mom, housekeeper and writer, and well - let's make that at least six jobs.

But, wait a minute, you might say. Editor with an erotic romance publisher? When did this happen? :)

Around the end of December/beginning of January, I made some more "boob wishes" - one of which included getting a job by end of January/beginning of February with a certain (quite reputable, RWA acknowledged) publisher who shall remain nameless for the time being. There were two other wishes as per usual, but if they didn't come true it was my own fault. (Hard to get published when you don't submit material! lol) However, right on time, editing job came through. Boob wishes strike again! :)

(BTW, for those of you asked what the "welcome opportunity" was that I referred to in a comment in my last post, that was it.)

Now if I can only find another 48 hours in a 24-hr day...

How's it going in your neck of the woods? Any good news to report?


  1. Oh, congratulations! I remember how stressful it was for you last fall. I've entered a crisis period now, too. But you keep plugging away. One foot in front of the other. I'll get somewhere, LOL!

    I was wondering what you were up to. :-)

  2. Congratulations! Glad things are looking up for you, even if it's keeping you too busy to blog. I think the editing experience will be awesome.

    And thanks for the boob wishes reminder. I'm making mine right now. Okay, done! I finished my book on Thursday -- hence the boob wishes.:)

  3. Came by way of Leesa's blog and love what you've got here. I also wanted to say thanks for the links in your last post...they're definitely something I will be checking out! :)

  4. Congratulations on the newest of your jobs. I hope it works out well.

    Nothing new, here. Just applying some shrinky-dink technology to my MS, hoping the lower word count will assist me in locating an agent.

  5. Whoot! How wonderful, don't ya just love those boob wishes? Like Edie, it's time for me to update my list. Mine came true too, and it's a great way to focus and send wishs out there. So happy for you!

  6. Well, thanks for this refreshing post and the magical charm! I am, wait a minute . . . I DID write my 3 boob wishes and they're tucked away :)
    Glad life is keeping your glass (and rice bowl) filled.
    PS Love that, "what was that part - in between . . .?" job!

  7. Congrats on the editing job! I don't know how you find time to write at all. I only have one job and I rarely have the time or energy to do any serious writing.

  8. Congratulations! That's great that you got the position you wanted with this publishing house. I hope you are doing good and taking care of yourself.

    Many best wishes!!

  9. Thanks, everyone, for your good wishes.

    Spy - I understand about the crisis. {{hugs}}

    Edie - congrats on finishing your book! :) Good luck with the new wishes too.

    Stacy - thanks for stopping by! :)

    Avery - I have faith in you. You are a smart, talented writer. Don't forget it. :)

    LaDonna - thanks, and good luck with your wishes. :)

    Lindy - great to "see" you again. I hope things are going well for you.

    Travis - unfortunately, that was my point - I don't have time to write these days. :( Maybe I should try some Ribose... :)

    Christina - thanks. How's the writing going?

  10. Hey Kate, sorry to be a bit slow off the mark, but congratulations so much! That's really awesome news.

  11. Thanks, Donks. :) Good to see you in these here parts again.

  12. Wow...Congrats on the at least 6 jobs! I hope you're finding ample time for sleep, at least! Best of luck, as always. I SOOO dig your art!

  13. Thanks so much, Lana. That means a lot coming from you. :)

    As for sleep, what's that? I think I've heard of it before, but I don't really remember.


Say what you will...
