right place right time

Shame on me for neglecting my blog, but I've been revising and polishing two stories all week thanks to a bit of serendipity at D.C. It pays to volunteer at the agent/editors appointments, people. When I noticed some empty spots, I seized the moment. Luckily my roomate, ALee Drake had her laptop and I brought my flashdrive and I had time to run back to my room, or I would have blown my NASCAR pitch to the Harlequin editors, who asked to see a sample of my writing. You know what a gear-head I am, and how much I love NASCAR, so I'm thrilled to have this chance. Also, I repitched my romantic comedy to another house, and I got an editor and agent request. This all happened after spending four fabulous days meeting old friends, Hi again to Vicki, Kay and Sherry, and going to 'Super' parties, making new friends, Hi to Kristin, and sighting seeing in D.C. with ALee, and having great fun with my chapter mates Dawn and Debbie.

Hi girlfriend! I'm so thrilled your DC trip went exceptionally well. I'm not surprised that you seized the moment! You're a fast thinker and have the talents to back it up sista! I MISSED being with you. It's been 2 years(sniffle). You're one of the best people I've had the pleasure of meeting through RWA---and as we all know, there are MANY special ladies in our organization.

Ditto here, sista. I missed you in D.C. I didn't know where to find any cool bars. ;) I'm certain our paths will cross again!
