I’m so grateful. So many good things have happened. Doing well in school, I’m now being represented by Laura Bradford, and most dear to my heart, Storm is doing much better. Two emergency vet trips in one week is not fun. Especially when they’re talking about potential back surgery. It scared the hell of me. I cried more than once. It’s a 70% success rate, but it’s also $5000. I’d have gotten the money somehow, but I was more worried because we had the conversation of how much do we put her through before it is too much.
Thankfully, between her laser therapy treatments and medicine regiment, Storm has been getting better. Her back doesn’t spasm, she can walk, and she is basically back to her old self. The rest of her blood work came back fine, which made me happy. Well her calcium level is one point high, so we have to watch out for that, but hey ten years old and she’s basically good.
So, now we just have to watch out for her back, and keep her from doing anything spunky, cause she seems to think she’s a young whippersnapper again. Love the enthusiasm. I just don’t want her to get hurt again. It scared the hell out of me. The poor girl couldn’t walk at all. Now she tries to run and I’m like, “No!” She doesn’t like it very much, but I want to give it at least another week of rest to be on the safe side.
Now, Spring Break has arrived, which means no school, but we’re heading up to my parents for the week. I already forewarned my mom that I’d be editing most of the time, so she was going to have to deal with it. Days will be for editing, night will be for socializing. Spring Break from school, but from writing–which is perfectly fine by me. There’s nothing else I’d rather be doing.
I’m actually going to take summer off. Three years straight of school is enough. It’s time for a break. I’ll be able to focus on my writing more without the added stress of school. I’ll figure things out from there. Fall I’m definitely going back, but whether full or part time has yet to be determined.
One step at a time. Right now, I’m focusing on this week.
I’ve hit over 1000 followers on twitter. I’m seriously starting to think I’m in the Twilight Zone. Anyway, in honor of that milestone, as well as hitting 200 likes on Facebook, I’ve decided to do a query and first chapter (or first 5k words) critique for two lucky winners.
Why, because you guys are awesome!
PB, MG, and High/Epic Fantasy Excluded, not because I don’t like you, but because I SUCK at those and would be absolutely no help.
So here’s the deal. Leave a reply telling me something awesome (writing related or not) that’s happened to you recently. It doesn’t have to be major, just something positive.
I’ll pick two winners on Friday, March 6th and we’ll go from there.
You guys are all awesome!
