And... I'm off!

YAY! Heading out tomorrow for South Carolina for my first writer's conference. PLUS, I will get to meet one of my fabulous critique partners in person, Melissa. Double YAY!

Finished a significant revision of THE EDUCATION OF THIA. It felt like a massive group effort, but I'm really pleased with the current version. Hopefully, agents will be as well.

Took my mom to the doctor for the results of her bone marrow biopsy and the doctor basically said she was miraculously (sp? - I'm too tired to get that one!) healed. Her red blood count is back to normal and there is no cancer in her bone marrow (there was the last time it was checked, fourteen years ago!). So, the doctor has ordered more tests to see if all of her cancer is gone. Weird! She's had stage four lymphoma for fourteen years, but she has eaten very organically and even eats raw garlic daily. So, I'm still doing a head-shake on that one. It certainly wasn't the news my brother and I were prepared for.

So, now I'm off to get an agent and maybe even learn how to become a better writer. :)

See you when I get back next week!

While I'm gone, feel free to discuss writing topics amongst yourselves in the comments area!! HA.
