A few weeks back I mentioned that I was waiting to hear back on a full ms I had submitted to my editor at Samhain. This is a story that I wasn’t sure would find a home. To my relief (and surprise) it wasn’t rejected outright. In fact I was offered the opportunity to tweak it (strengthen the opening chapter and heighten the conflict). YEAH! This story had won a pitch contest at Harlequin, but ultimately the editor was uncomfortable with the nature of the conflict (health issues are a little tricky).
For some weird reason (holiday madness, too little Baileys) I’ve struggled gettting my thoughts on paper. In my head I know what I need to do — the execution,however, is killing me (bad pun, I know). I’m hoping that when this weekend is over, I’ll be able to really sit down and find my brain again. I’ve set a deadline that I have to complete my changes before I head to NYC in two weeks. If I leave town without resolving it, I’ll drive myself crazy instead of enjoying a holiday weekend in the city.
