Well, Josh and I have packed our bags and moved again, this time to the opposite coast. We're getting settled here in California, and guess what I just found out...San Jose has an It's a Grind coffee house! Not to mention other cozy independent coffee houses in the area. Color me a happy California girl.

How silly of me to think I was done revising! Silly Becky.
Yeah...I'm rewriting 30% of my manuscript. However, 100% worth the effort. I'm already seeing a huge improvement.

Revisions. Finally. Complete. 1 a.m. Tired.
Excited. :)

I have to say...I was very impressed with the second annual Atlanta Writers Conference. The workshop was fun and educational, and I had the brief but memorable honor of speaking with one of the presenters. Many questions answered, money well spent.

Finally, I moved from Charlotte to Atlanta and am reunited with my husband after a seven-month relocation process. At least I now have some real-life experience to apply to my sequel. Sigh.

And now...after an absurdly long hiatus, it is time for the writer's and editor's block to lift and the creative juices to flow! Get the mop ready!

August 2008

Revisions, revisions!

July 2008

Began outlining Branches of Autumn.

June 2008

Submitted Amber Vines to author DeAnna Julie Dodson and Furman professor Dr. Robin Visel for revision.

April 7, 2008

Completed Amber Vines, sitting at my favorite table near the fireplace of Ballantyne's It's a Grind. Well, formerly It's a Grind. I cried when that coffee house closed, and I still can't talk about it.

March 2005

Began writing Amber Vines in the spring of my senior year at Furman.

Spring 2003

Outlined initial ideas for Amber Vines, sitting on a swing beside a flower bed on the Furman University campus. Sigh. I miss that campus.
