May is finally here, but it's still too cold to put away winter clothes. My husband was mowing in jeans and a sweatshirt this week. The lawn sure looks nice, though, honey. I've still got a few stories out to editors and some excerpts and chapters sent to writing contests. And I'm still playing the waiting game. But I've been keeping myself busy this time around, fixing some of my completed works, adding to unfinished stories, and going over one manuscript with my critique partner. It's been very helpful, and not just in polishing my skills, but also in keeping the impatience down so I don't turn annoying and try contacting any publishers to make sure they really did receive my submission.
