Happy Sunday, my fellow ROWers.
So, here it is…
My mother used to say, “If in doubt, don’t.” I found myself applying that principle this past week. I did get a nibble from one of my job apps, but I just wasn’t settled about pursuing it for a number of reasons.
Deb is looking over the complete manuscript. I will make whatever changes she indicates, and then we will be sending it off to a well-known personality. Deb would like her to write the endorsement, and her assistant requested the manuscript: a good sign, I’d say. Plus, we will be meeting with a publisher late February/early March. Since he has requested a sit-down, face-to-face, we are encouraged.
Laura has sent off her manuscript to the publisher and was very pleased with my edit. Yay!
Write! On – I’m glad I read this. I might have forgotten to send it off today. Whew! Thank goodness for ROW.
I’m awaiting word on a very big job. It would require several months of work. Here’s hoping.
I wrote my blog posts and a picture book manuscript this week. I hope to get some more writing done today.
I have three days to get something fired off. I, for sure, want to make this at least a monthly occurrence.
I’ve started a new book for Blogging for Books and another for Booksneeze: From Blah to Awe and A Sound Among the Trees . I’m enjoying them both.
I downloaded six free chapters from Frank Peretti’s newest book, due out in March. The first chapter is incredibly compelling. By the looks of it, I’ll be adding this book to my 2012 To Be Read list.
I’m poking away at Shadowed in Silk. It’s one of those tragic love stories I want to set aside, but feel compelled to continue reading. I haven’t gotten this emotional about a book in quite a while.
I’m also reading unEmployed Faith. The author makes some great points, and I’m looking forward to reviewing this book later this week.
I’ve also agreed to read and review The Other Baby Book. The author is in the process of doing the final edit and formatting it. I love getting in on the ground floor.
I’m thinking I should get a paying job reading. I could live with that.
I’m on top of things for the time being.
Exercise & Fitness
No matter what else I skip, I’m keeping up with the Push Up Challenge. It was one of the last things I did before bed last night.
I have to find the balance between easing up on the numbers thing while still getting adequate exercise.
I have two workouts scheduled with my w/o buddy again for this coming week. We missed one this past week because the door wasn’t open and I didn’t want to knock and risk waking her hubby.
ROW Specific Goals
Check in twice per week. on target
Stop by fellow ROWers’ sites every Monday or Thursday. Good intentions and all…I must do better. I must do better.
Continue connecting with my writing buddy regularly. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JULIE.

Could be better. Could be worse. How non-committal is that?
To quote my mother, “If in doubt, don’t.”
