Many things

Yeah, I know creative title. LOL.

I blogged at Book Worm Bags with more tips on the Agent Quest.

I received and sent back edits on the Sixth Cursed Halloween. I'm so thrilled that it releases *chirps* next week! Love-love my cover.

Settler's Mine: The Wolf is off to my editor. I'm crossing fingers (and toes) she likes it. I had a lot of fun writing that one.

I had thought I knew what was next on the agenda to write...had a good curve thrown my way. I'll give you more details as I can but it's going to be a fun ride.

I am working to edit Dark Raiders: Night Warriors. It's written, just needs the tweaking. I'm working on submitting to agents. A few rejections to add to the wall so far but still hopeful. I'm realistic, too. I've already formulated some back up plans.

Once DR is tweaked, I plan to edit two novellas I've written over the last year and find homes for those as well.

Wrote a bit on Kyrand's Reward for a Melany project and sent that back.

This past weekend, went to a Girl Scout Celebration. It was so much fun! I had to leave around lunchtime due to my conference. While I enjoyed my conference, I wish I could have stayed longer at the Girl Scout thing. So many booths and crafts and swaps.

I was a Girl Scout for a long time. I went through Brownies (no Daisies back then), Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors. I even helped with a middle school troop my senior year of high school as an aide. I got the second highest award in scouting, the Silver Award. It's been exciting to see my girls getting into scouting. I'm not sure how far they will go but they enjoy it for now.

Throughout my whole Girl Scouts career, my mom was with me every step of the way. She was so proud to be a leader and co-leader at various points. It was something we shared together and spent a lot of time together doing Girl Scout activities. When we visited Savannah in 1998, one thing Mom wanted to do was visit Juliette Lowe's house (the founder of Girl Scouts).

Saturday morning, all I could think of as I watched the Girl Scout parade was that my mom would have loved the whole celebration. So would my troop leader through most of my time in Girl Scouts. Both Mom and my troop leader have passed away. I have to think they were there in spirit. Mom would have just been beaming to see my girls enjoying all the Girl Scout activities going on. Her birthday is tomorrow, she would have been 73. Sometimes I really miss her.

This turned into a book! LOL

May the muses have Girl Scouts
