~V~

Victorious

Today's A to Z Challenge letter is ~V~ and I have chosen to right about a couple victorious events this week.

First, my Gram came out of her surgery like a trooper and while she has a long road to recovery, she is going to be fine.

Second, I took the final chapter of my book with its climactic ending and finally got it exactly right. So now rather than an insipid ending, my book is ending with a bang exactly as I wanted.

I really enjoyed a fun, energetic happy dance at these two victorious events. Next on the list is the writer's conference here in OKC May 3rd-5th. I entered the first couple chapters of my novel in the contest and am hoping that the last year's worth of revisions proves good enough to earn me at least an honorable mention. I will also be pitching my very first novel for the very first time and am so nervous I feel sick to my stomach when I think about it.

Needless to say, I'll be working on my pitch this week. Wish me luck!

    2. The thoughts and prayers that have poured out from my friends both online and off, humbles me. Thank you so much. My Gram is my mentor, confidant, and role model. To say I am thankful to God for allowing her to stay with me a little longer would be an understatement. Thanks, again.
