Over the Hump

I'm so excited. I got over that hump part of my Work in Progress where I wasn't quite sure how all the stuff I wanted to happen was going to happen. It was a really complicated couple of scenes that all take place at this party that is the dark moment for several of the characters. So now I'm dealing with the after effects of the party. WHEW! I find certain parts of my books are really tough to work through and get right. I'll probably tweak those 15 -20 pages several times in the next few days, trying to get them just right. On another note, I've gotten several emails and phone calls from the ladies I dedicated The Kitten Club to - several women I've known for years who I met at salons I used to work at. The 3 who have seen the dedication so far were so touched that I mentioned them. I'm really glad I included that dedication. Over the years I spent countless hours with each of those ladies and heck, they're all practically like family. Most have known me since I was pregnant with my 13 year old and some since before my 18 year old was born!
On another note, my son's finally made his final decision on college. He'll start at the University of Central Florida in the fall and (YEAH!) live home at first. We're very happy about this because we don't get to see him much anymore and we kind of enjoy his company. Anyway - what's new with you?

I'm over a major hump with getting my first chapter out to a contest. It's been rather a farce, really. Why are farces always funny when you're watching them with tears running down your face? Of course when the farce is happening to you it feels more like a meltdown. Oh well, c'est la vie.

Great news that your son will stick around for school and that you've made it over the hump. Sometimes I have to claw my way there, but it's a great feeling when I'm over it!

Speaking of humps...What are you doing early Monday afternoon?

I'm so glad you're over the hump. I can't imagine...(good thing I don't have to, right?). I can't wait to read it. Hurry up already. :P

Congrats to your son. Choosing a college is hard and I'm glad he'll be at home for a bit. I'm sure it will make his adjustment into something new easier.

Oh, and how sweet of you to mention the dedication and your friends.

Julia - Good for you - You go, girl!
April - I'm often clawing too:-)
Holly - Thanks! I'm still waiting to hear where Jack went;-)

I have a feeling my DH is anonymous, not Dirk. He's such a sly guy - secret squirrel.
