Celebrate the Small Things Blog Hop

Happy Friday everyone!!

It's a small party today! Why? Because I'm celebrating the small things!

1. My daughter survived her vaccines yesterday. She was so precious. She said, "Mommy, I can do this." and she asked me to pray for her. And she was so brave and sweet! Two shots in each arm and a little trickle down her cheek.

I'm thankful it's over...

What about you, beautiful guys and dolls????

Thanks, Vik!!


  1. oh my goodness, what a sweetie! She was so brave. :)

  2. Yay for your daughter. Shots are scarrry and (ow!). I got to meet my writing idols the other day which was a celebration indeed, and I got to see my mom over the weekend for mother's day. I'm also diving into revisions soon w/my ms. :D

  3. That is so cute. Glad it went ok. :-)

  4. That's really cute she asked you to pray.

  5. She is SO cute!!!!

    I'm thankful for my truly faithful friends who stick by myself and each other no matter what :) And yes that means you, too!

  6. Oh my goodness, what a brave little girl! Glad it went well ;)

  7. Oh bless glad it went well, and that it's over!

  8. Glad she made it through it like a trooper. She's got a lot of courage.

  9. Awww bless her, sounds like she is a lot braver than me. :)

  10. Oh, I remember those, and I cried every time. She was so brave! Give her a big hug, she deserves it. Those needles are scary, still!

  11. Cute story. The trickle down the cheek was a sweet touch. Made me go, "Awww..."

  12. Aw, good for her! What a trooper!

    Stopping by from the blog hop!

  13. Aw, that's great. I'm still not that brave when I have injections, and I'm probably about 25 years older than your daughter!

Writer In Motion CP feedback

Hey beautiful guys and dolls! Here it is! My CP feedback edited story. Had a hard time with this, but I hope it makes sense. I've got a post I'm working on I plan to put up after Thanksgiving. Here ya go. Enjoy... Every morning I wake to carnival day.  Today, though, I have my key. If I don’t use it before midnight, my way of escape will gone. It’s a silver key with a twisted metal handle, a sapphire stone half moon and engraved stars. There’s a tiny inscription on the moon, but it’s so small, I’ve never been able to read it.I’ve always kept mine in my jewelry box, but today, I string it on a ribbon and tie it around my neck. My two best friends will be wearing theirs, too, and I wonder how they will escape this carnival of dreams. “What’s it for?” Cress asks as we stand in line for the swings. I run my fingertips over the entire silver surface. “I don’t know. It belonged to my grandmother,” I say. “Whatever.” She shrugs her shoulder in a dismissive way. “Have

Operation Agent Ink

UPDATE: PLEASE FILL OUT THIS QUESTIONNAIRE AFTER YOU SIGN UP. Have you ever wondered what agents were dying to find in their inbox/slush pile? There have been many times I entered a contest and not even received a comment, not even from one of the agents. Or maybe the agent was kind enough to leave a comment that simply said, "Sorry, this just isn't what I'm looking for, but I love the premise and your voice." I always walk away feeling unsatisfied. If I had known exactly what the agent wanted beyond, "YA" or "Fantasy" I might not have even entered a contest I knew I wouldn't win! Even more, I wasted a very busy agents time! Well, your time of guessing is up! OPERATION AGENT INK to the rescue! That's right! This workshop will help aspiring authors get on the list of an agent's WISH LIST! When the workshop is over, your manuscript will be ready to view by a group of AMAZING agents who are dying to see what you've wri

Insecure Writers Group

Today, my feelings are mixed. On one hand, I've faced more rejection and that's not easy to write about or admit to the world. But I am not crying in my "milk" (no beer, folks:) I want to, but what good would it do??? I received a detailed critique from a "Best First Line" contest. The critique was the best I have ever received and seriously opened my eyes to "how" to improve my writing. Nice! Speaking of critiques, I am still looking for a critique partner. If anyone is looking back, please let me know and we can swap info. I'm sending off a YA query letter and first pages to 3 agents this week. Wish me luck. This will be the first time I have directly contacted and agent with a query. Yes, I'm nervous, so I'm saying again, WISH ME LUCK!!!
