Just When You Least Expect It . . .

It's been a long week -- first full week of school for both me and the Monsters. I've been focused, focused, focused on teaching rituals and routines, helping my mentee, tackling department head stuff. Writing has been the last thing on my mind.

Thus, I spent the last two days desperately trying to come up with an idea for my blog entry here. I don't know what I was thinking when I put myself down for the Friday spot. Do you have any idea how difficult it is to follow the brilliance that is my critique partners, Elisabeth and Joan? I end the week feeling like the red-headed stepchild. And this week? No ideas. None. No matter where I looked, what I thought about, I had nothing.

Nothing.

Until I came home tonight and checked my email. Seventy-nine unread messages. I skim.

One from my editor, Jessica Bimberg. She's been swamped and I haven't heard from her lately. So getting this email was nice.

Just let me say, I'm so thankful to her. She handed me my blog entry idea.

And contract offers for three more books!

Congrats Linda! They say it always comes when you least expect it. Or the old adage "A watched pot never boils".
