Writer Friends = Gold

I think I might have a manuscript going out on submission this week. In fact, I'm pretty sure I do, but, as people say on facebook, it's complicated. Well, not really that complicated, but it's one of those things I probably shouldn't talk about online until things are settled and done.

That said, I'm so grateful I have writer friends who know how it feels to have your work out there being read and evaluated! It's so nice knowing I'm not the only one who checks my email 1000 (10,000?) times per day or gets all crazy-excited if my blog-visitor stats go nuts.

Guess it's a good thing tomorrow's my water polo breakfast shift--cooking breakfast for 60 people is a fine distraction. Only problem is, I haven't decided whether I'll be making burritos or quesadillas. What do you think?

Good luck! Also, I vote quesadillas.

Do quesadillas. Burritos are too hard to make stay wrapped. Good luck with the submissions. You're such a great writer, Ara. Who wouldn't want you?

Thanks, Liz! Thanks, Cheryl! I should have taken your advice--I did the burritos, instead, and it took * f o r e v e r *.

I'm sorry I missed this post earlier this month. I'm so excited for you, Ara. I hope you're hanging in there! I have a feeling you'll be hearing good news soon (if you haven't already).
