Well, folks, I keep moving forward in my efforts to get my crap together for/in 2017. In addition to creating a budget and subscribing to all my recurring expenses (which you can read about here):
- I created a custom planner with Wrights Notes. Mine has my own personal weekly to-do list on the left page of each spread and a weekly calendar on the right. I freaking love lists.
- I’ve been cooking for myself. Mostly eggs.
- I ordered a bunch of stuff to organize my closet, in the hopes that this will help me to keep my room in better order. I’m kind of excited.
- I returned to my therapist for the first time in maybe nine months. It was so good to go over everything that’s happened since I’d been there and see how much I’d grown.
Got an email from my editor last weekend.
Subject: just finished
Body: your beautiful book.
Wow. Just wow.
You did all that?
I wish I could zap you a big bouquet of flowers and a chandelier.
I can’t tell you what a relief this is. With my editor on board with this novel, I feel like I can tackle any revisions.
In fact, she sent me a list of questions to be considering as we move forward with revising/restructuring this thing. This week has been so busy that I haven’t had a moment to think on it, but tomorrow and Sunday I hope to spend thinking, praying, and journaling in search of my next steps. Think of me.
Jackie! I’m so happy for you as you go on this next step! God’s blessings your way! Godspeed!
Very good news! YAY.
So awesome, Jackie!
I am just seeing this now and beyond excited about that message from your editor. Amazing news and, I’m sure, very well deserved!
