    Got an email from my publisher today. I had submitted the latest version of my book a few weeks ago and they fronted a good chunk of change to finish it. I don't really care about the money, although that is a nice perk, it's just being recognized for what I am doing. I have until August to produce the finished product. I guess I have a goal now. It's still a good year in the making of the final project, but this was a big step.

    Finally draft is in by August, publication could take up to another year. They have to have their little fingers into every word, etc. So, it will be that back and forth thing for awhile. I've got to give up my stubborness at some point. :ashamed: I want it like it is...they want to make money. Such is life.

    Stang, I would gladly send it to you...but it might clog up your email.

    Abbey, have you decided yet who you want to play you in the movie? Meryl is too old but Julia might be right.

    You go, girl!
