But then, she sent me her real post...

So my super-duper, awesome, wonderful, exciting news is…
I have an agent - awesome Marisa Cleveland!
And wonderful Talynn is the one who first connected us.
Back in February Talynn held a pitch contest at Ink in the Book. Writers gave short pitches on her blog, and agents invited writers to send in their work. Ms. Cleveland liked the premise of my manuscript and requested a partial. A few months passed, and I connected with Ms. Cleveland and her colleague several times through other pitches and even a conference. At the end of May, I followed up with her and she read the full of my story. She offered to represent me that same day! Yippee!
So thank you, thank you, thank you to Talynn and her pitch contest because without it, I wouldn't have connected with my agent. These online pitches are a great way to get your work out there and find someone who is a good match for you. Best of luck to everyone!

Friday's post

Hey all:) I'm taking today and this weekend off. A very, VERY dear, sweet, and close friend of my family passed away this week. And we just got word that his wife's brother, (whom I love like a mother) died last night. So she is dealing with the death of her husband and her brother. Enjoy your weekend, my friends, and hold those you love close. You never know when they will be gone. I will return on Monday, and will have workshop classes every day next week.

I think the more I try and slow time down, the faster it goes! Why? Sometimes I wonder if there really is fruit in my effort? I mean, no matter how hard I try, like slowing time down, it just doesn't work. where's the benefits? Where's the proof? What do I have to show for my efforts? Then, I have to sit back and realize, maybe I'm trying to change the wrong things. I mean, seriously, I can't change time, slow it down. That's an impossible task, so why do I try so hard to stop it? To time back, or slow it down. It. Can't. Be. Done. When I concentrate on the impossible, I overlook the the possible.

I'm no longer going to worry about the things out of my reach. I'm no longer going to concern myself with things I can not change. I'm no longer going to devot
