Good News

Okay, some of my friends are asking about the 'good news'. No, I'm not pregnant! That's become the first response whenever I say I have news. I'm happy to announce...I'm getting a story published! Yaaayyy! I'm so excited! In fact, I'm still having a hard time believing it. Pinch me, this real? It's been hard work juggling my writing with the demands of two little toddlers. I write during naptime and bedtime. I try to sneak some sentences or thoughts in while the two of them are playing with their cars and trucks. Even while I'm getting breakfast, lunch and dinner ready my mind is never too far away from my stories. It's exhausting. But, it's worth it. Now I'm ready for the next step. Working with my editor (hehe! I still can't get over that!) to get my story into the best shape possible. Wish me luck! I'm more nervous now than I was during all those submissions and contests!
