Celebrating the Small Things again...
This post is part of VikLit's blog hop, Celebrate the Small Things. Head on over there to join up!
So, what am I celebrating this week?
Between the #PitchMas blog contest and the Twitter contest, STUMPED wound up with 6 requests! So I'm quietly thrilled about that. Maybe my ugly little baby isn't quite as abhorrent as I thought.
One of the girls who works with me has read my last three books as I wrote them, giving me invaluable feedback on the way. I gave her the first 8 chapters of my new one to read - the one I think is boring, pointless and basically complete and utter rubbish - and she reckons it's the best thing I've written yet. So that's given me a boost.
We had a 5.7 earthquake here this morning, and I was at work in a building that has a yellow sticker for being unsafe in earthquakes, but the only damage was a chair falling over. And I was standing right by the shelf we keep all the glasses on. Not a single one fell!
What small things are you celebrating this week?
