KEEPING UP

Once again I’ve found myself lagging with this blog, but I’ve been keeping up with pretty much everything else. I’m walking indoors to a videotape, I’ve begun a twenty-one-day meatless fast, and that’s going pretty well, and I’ve been keeping up with my writing groups. My weakness lies in submitting to the different markets. One reason is, let’s face it, I hate REJECTION! But I also know if I don’t submit I can’t get accepted, right? So this week I’m focusing on SUBMISSIONS! How many did I do? Two-one to a contest, one to a devotional mag. For me that’s very good, but I want to be excellent. So next week I’ll submit three. How about that?

On a somber note, once again we’re bracing for another hurricane. Hurricane Rita. In New Orleans the streets are now beginning to dry, dead bodies are still around and people are still in a state of shock. People who had been evacuated to nearby Texas are now running from Texas. The Bible says in the last days men will run to and fro, their hearts failing them for fear. We cannot run from God and His wrath, the answer is to run to him. Won’t you run to Him today?

Well, I'm glad that you're in Florida and out of the path of Rita. Poor New Orleans, now their in the rinse cycle. These flood waters can wash away all the toxins left behind last time.

I'm a friend of Bonnie's...I totally understand about the rejection. I've got to submit to about twelve more publishers this week or I'll just focus on the ones that have not yet contacted me! I'll pray for you...pray for me!

Hi Bonnie, Hi Marianne,
I couldn't find a box for separate replies. Thanks for dropping by and leaving your comments. As you can see I'm now starting out and appreciate every comment I get. Marianne, your book sounds very interesting, although I'm not a lover of fantasy, but I'll be praying.
