My lower back aches from sitting so long, 9-2 at the computer editing Publishing Syndicate's anthology, Not Your Mother's Book...On Family. Some great funny stories!
Bill went out to get a taco and I sat here engrossed in my work. I heard an awful ruckus in the hallway, like lots of things falling and hitting the floor. I do not hear voices! Even my skeptical honey has heard things 'falling' in this house and then when we go to look, there is nothing there.
Nothing was out of place, not in any room of the house. I think it was my late mom sending me KUDOS from on high. I sat back down at the computer and saw that I had received an E mail from Chicken Soup for the Soul. They sent a contract for the Dating Book coming out in December. I await final selection, but it looks like this one has a good chance. That will be 20 Chicken Soup for the Soul books that my stories will be published in.
Insiders news: Amy Newmark contacted contributors to let us know Chicken Soup is making a movie! They've also come out with a line of soups.
Speaking of soup...I'll give you a preview of what my story is about. Three dining disasters. One was when Bill put a bowl of soup on the table and trotted back to the buffet. I tasted it, and it was so good, I ate every last drop of ... his brown gravy for his roast beef.
I've just heard from two writer friends who have also received acceptances for the same book.
You can do it, too. Sit down and write a slice of life, personal essay.
