Celebrate the Small Things


Many thanks to Lexa, Katie, and LG for hosting this hop!

This week, I'm celebrating:

1. Word by word progress on three projects.

2. Prayers answered for some friends.

3. Pictures found on pinterest for fun.

4. The Ted Houk Regatta this weekend at Greenlake in Seattle, WA - Kayaking and canoeing flat-water sprint races for two days in the sunshine! Pics next week.

5.  Getting my Summer Vacation Devotions book prepped earlier than planned! I moved up my release date to June 15th!

6. Cool submission links found:

Alphabet Anthologies - an ongoing series of anthologies, edited by Rhonda Parrish. Writers must query for a chance to be on the list of possible authors - but it looks like an awesome opportunity.

Sirens Anthology from World Weaver Press - Submissions window opens on August 15th.

What are you celebrating this week?

Bonus news (added late) My flash/drabble story went live today in the first ever publication of Imaginate! "Pink"

it's been good - not quite as many words as I wanted to write, but good.

Sarah Foster said...

Word progress on three projects? That's awesome! :)

Hi! I'm celebrating that I discovered my true passions really are writing and scrapbooking, and not necessarily gardening. I'd been considering building a permanent greenhouse, but after my cheap WalMart greenhouse got torn apart, I realized I don't want to be into gardening in that big of a way. Congrats on all the things you got done last week. I scaled mountains as well in that regard, tho didn't blog about it. Maybe I should have. I always like reading about other people's writing accomplishments. ;)

That all sounds great! I had a good week overall, getting back on track, in general and writing-wise. I think. :)

A little bit on each one . . . not tons.
But, thanks!

Thanks, Catherine! I like reading about other's accomplishments too.

My most exciting thing this week was when The Vanished Knight trended on Wattpad. It's not anymore, but hey, I'm hoping I hooked some more readers. :-)
