So we have just got back from a fabulous Mediterranean cruise on a beautiful ship with Swarovski crystals in the stairs. Yes, you will have to look hard at the picture to see them but I swear they are there! I could also tell a few tales about a terrifying visit to the Medina in Tunis and a very annoying man at Heathrow who rebooks your flight when you've been delayed. But this is not an adult only blog and swear words are definitely not allowed!
And now for the waiting. Because that's what I'm doing. I'm still waiting to hear about the revisions that they want done on the current book. Patience is a skill I have never been very good at (and being a nurse and a mum that almost seems a criminal offence) so I guess it's time to learn. I know that right now M & B are fast-tracking all medical submissions in the month of August. So I think I might have to wait until that is completed. I actually would really like to submit the other story I've revised but I know that I can't. I also would like to try and submit to the New Voices Romance is not Dead competition - have you seen the fantastic prizes?? But I know that I won't do either of these things. Both seem like fabulous opportunities but I've been really lucky and am currently working with an editor so I think it wouldn't seem fair to try and do this too. I remember the furore last time around and wouldn't like to be part of that when right now, I have an opportunity of my own. I also wonder if I really have the guts to submit a chapter that everyone in the world gets to read. I mean, really, what if everyone thought that it was rubbish and said so??
So I'm going to sit here patiently waiting. But I'm not back at work for the next ten days and my fingers are itching to type.....
Anyone else submitting?
