Thoughts on a Rainy Sunday!

This is just a very short post to let everyone know the winner of the book drawing from last week's interview with Tim Hooker is:


She will receive an autographed copy of Rocket Man: A Rhapsody of Short Stories from Tim Hooker. If the winner will please contact me I will give Tim your name and address and he will send it to you directly. I will post the name of the winner on my Facebook page too. In case the winner didn't get to read this blog post yet.:)

Congratulations and I hope that the next interview will have more commenters. Thank you to the people who did leave questions and comments.

Today was a day of dissenting. Looking back on the day it was probably because of the impending thunder storm. It rained all day lightly and there was a fog hanging over the whole landscape as we drove to Stew Leonard's for food. It only lasts about a month and then we have to go back and do it all over again.:) My daughters and I kept disagreeing over almost everything both going up there and coming home. Then when we had gotten home and dragged all the bags from the car and put the stuff away, I was upstairs when I heard this loud crash like the sky was literally cracking. Then the sky lit up and rain poured down faster and faster until it seemed that the roof wouldn't be able to hold all the pounding water that suddenly exploded from the clouds. It was literally an assault of rain!:) I hugged myself happy that I wasn't underneath it but safe in my dry house! It's little times like these that make you happy you are in the comfort of your own home.

Then all the anger and dissidence went away and we ate dinner in peace and calm. It was a good end to a very chaotic and stress-filled week.

I'm subbing Chapter 22 and maybe Chapter 23 of When My Life Changed to my critique group this week. Also this is going to be the week I'm resubbing my YA novel, If I Could Be Like Jennifer Taylor. It will be going to an agent. Please keep your fingers crossed.:)

Until next time, have a great Monday!!! I'm trying to make my posts shorter.:) I will also talk about the movie we saw this weekend and a few other non-writing things next post. Again - Congratulations to madcapmaggie.:)


  1. I know how you feel. I love listening to the rain especially if you're already in the comfort of your home. Probably curled up in the couch with a good book.

    Good luck on your novel, I'm sending positive thoughts your way.

    Thanks for dropping by. I'm glad you liked the widget. If you have questions on the width and height, just ask me and I will tell you how to tweak it to your liking, in case you want to use it.

    Happy night!

  2. Thank you Shey! I was so tired that I think I forgot to copy it, but I did love it. Will drop by and pick it up.:)

    Happy night to you too!
