Happy News

I know it seemed like I dropped off the face of the earth for a little while there, but I promise I’m alive and kicking.  In fact, I’m doubly alive, if one can be, because I am now housing another living being.

See what I mean?  This also makes me doubly tired…and nauseated BUT SUPER HAPPY!  Husband and I have been married for 6 1/2 years, and now we’ll have three children.

Here are our first two, Winston and Gabby:


They’re going to be great siblings.

And thanks to ya’ll for letting me gush a bit.

On Writing–

So, my March 31st deadline for the rough draft is coming up quickly, but as I explained in a past post, I’m going to have to alter that. What better time than the present?  Answer: None that I know of.

I have about 19,920 words with which I am rough-draft happy, which means that I have approximately 70,080 words to go.  I think I could conceivably move the rough draft completion date (Goal #5) to August 1, 2012, leaving extra room for preparations and vomiting.  Yes, that’ll do.

This is going to move my yearly goals around a bit as well.

Goal #6-revised: Complete revisions by October 21st.

Goal #7-revised: Ready query letters and publisher packets by December 17th.

I hope these changes will stick, but I don’t know how Blue (what we call Baby because when we found out he/she was the size of a blueberry) and I will get along these next few months and beyond.  Hopefully, swimmingly.

How about you guys?  Are you on target?  Falling a bit behind?  Have some news to share?!
