So the revisions are done and have flown away to Mills and Boon land. And I know they've landed because I've had a lovely email to tell me. So what now? Because this is the time that the crows of doubt usually land. And they've been known to heckle me quite a lot. So I'm looking back through my lists and thinking "Did I capture what they want?" and "Will I be in with a shot?"
Then there is the New Voices contest. Would I be brave enough to submit a chapter for the whole world to read? In the meantime I have decided to plan ahead. I have last year's story to rewrite. This time with a POV. I've done the first three chapters but will continue with the rest. It's good practice in rewriting and editing. I am also doing Shirley Jump's online class From Good To Sold. Halfway through and it's proving quite inspiring. It really nice to read the whole classes homework and the changes she suggests. I am also planning towork on something else and try and put a synopsis together. So this is me trying to be calm while I'm waiting, what do you think?

It's lovely to see medical authors getting recognition for their work, sometimes medical books aren't eligible for some awards, or are overlooked, so I was delighted to see some medical authors waving the flags. Well done Ladies!
