Heart Palpitations

So I saw this contest link on the lovely Chantele Sedgwick’s blog and within 20 minutes I had entered.

Am I the only one who gets incredibly nervous when sending other people my work? I was rejected over and over for book one, I haven’t even queried book two and it’s been a year since I even WROTE the thing.

But I thought, hey, what could it hurt? Maybe this is the jump-start I need to get back on the query wagon. Either way, I entered, with book 2, and you should too, cuz why not? Life is short right?

In other news, life is BUSY! My husband and I both got promotions this month, which is an AMAZING blessing, but also means a whole lot more work. I’m now the Design Director (aka ONLY designer) for Noah’s and we’re planning on, oh, like six buildings this year. How many did we do last year with two designers, you ask? Oh…one.

Yeah. This should be interesting. And super exciting.

And my husband just got promoted to a job where he’ll be the manager of a store called the Red Zone, which sells all things University of Utah. The greatest part is, it’s literally 15 minutes away from where we live. His commute will go from 20 hours a week (yes, it’s equivalent to a part-time job) to FIVE hours a week. I don’t even know what to do with all that extra time with him! I can’t even imagine! He doesn’t start till next month, but we’re so excited!

So that’s what’s going on in these parts. And why I’ve been so sporadic with my blogging. But I had to share this contest with you all and wish everyone luck. At least one other person will be reading my work.

And maybe one day, hundreds will. Right? Right?

Happy Monday!
