Doing the Happy Dance! I just received official confirmation that my story, "From Rags to Riches" will be in the NYMB On Dogs. What makes this even more fun for me is that the story includes a couple of photos of my dog, Rags. He was special to me in many ways and seeing those decades-old pictures sure put a lump in my throat.
The book will soon go to print and is expected to be released nationwide on December 11. Sounds like the perfect Christmas gift to me.
But wait! There's more! Here's another piece of good news. Today I finished my NaNoWriMo challenge. That means 50,000-plus words, baby, and I've got the calloused fingertips to prove it. Okay, maybe those words are rougher than a piece of broken concrete, but that's okay. Someday, when I've recovered from this whole experience, I'll take out that manuscript and turn it into something a human being might actually be able to make some sense of.
Woo-hoo! I think it's time to pour a glass of wine and relax. Cheers!
