things I managed to get done today:

1) got car fixed (well mostly fixed - I wnet to pep boys and that was one thing that was covered under the warinty for the work I had done in September - but they didn't manage to get my wheel lto stay on so I'd rather pay money to ge tthe problem fixed) 

2) submitted a peice for publication.  I shouldn't hear back until after August 1 but I wanted it gone.  I was tired of reading it over and over.

3) all but three of the stories for the contest I'm judging.  

It took ALL day to do that... ALL day.

yeah - I got a bunch of stuff done - but I wanted to get all of the stories read and start on your chapter 5 but I watched WAY to much tv...

adn the other thing is you don't need to read Summerland - it's been submitted. I just HAD to get rid of it. HAD to!

yeah I needed Summerland to be gone. Read it when you have time - i did do a few edits after I sent it to you. I'll send you the 'finished' version if you want - if it dosn't get taken for this I'm gonna edit it again and give it to another publisher- or I should say a freind who does line edits for a publisher.

How's your student doing.

Well it needs to sit now until August. I'm thinking about writting some more short stories about Jeff and Derdre. I have like 4 ideas for them once I get Green Boy done.

If I rub her head will I get soem determination? Cause I so need some. I have no plan where I want to go with my life - adn I'm well pas the age when I should knwo what to do - right?

wow I turned that into all about me? I sort of hate that I do that.

I have all these ideas for them - I even started a few (One is looking at Jeff and Deidre from the POV of thier teacher cause you know Jeff has got to be a pain to have in class and I can see Dre trying to keep him in line)

But first I MUST finish Green Boy - then they can be 18 and 20 and 25 and 27... but they must finsih being 17 first! I thinkI have 6000 words left for Green Boy.
