this critic is awkward,sees the good, feels the to say it, that themind wanders, that filthdetracts from the everyday.that stitching can be rhythmic, andnever mind the capitals.clever words confound,googling interupts the flowwhilst dots are alawaysuseful.i have never done this before.sbm.See More

there was the bed to change, the washing to dry,

I haven't been on SheWrites much lately.  Been busy doing my own "thang" I suppose.  I'm curious as to what my SheWrites friends are up to, writing-wise, though.  Right now, I'm waiting to hear back from 2 agents who have requested my full manuscript of The Time Minders.  I'm still working on Kingdoms of Blood & Magic, but not as diligently as I should, since I've been querying/submitting for the TTM, doing scads of tutoring at my daughters' school and work for our church's youth group.  How about YOU?

And you.  Is it still damp in Wales?
