The clouds did gather later bringing rain and sleet. Yesterday was a good day because my ebuddies writing group, Women Who Write with Elves, managed to pass an anthology of short stories and recipes to the next stage of publishing. There were days during the last two months when we’d thought it wouldn’t happen. I exercised at Curves for thirty minutes, then picked Karen up to go to Bishopbriggs Library for the Monday group. After dropping Karen off I worked on my application to go on a month’s writing break. I won’t win because there are so many good writers out there, but applying certainly makes you think about where you are, and what you want to do.
