Bummer drag! One of my romances came back to me today. Personal rejection, though; rejection doesn't get any better than that. The editor said she liked many of the story elements but one detail threw her off. She was right. Fortunately, that detail will be easy to change, and my romance will once again be traveling through the mail stream to a prospective new home.
Also in the mail was an eight page survey from the sleep specialist. Here are some of the questions I said yes to:
- I have difficulty falling asleep.
- When I awaken during the night, I am unable to fall back to sleep.
- Is there a history of sleep problems in your family?
One of the pages perfectly described my mom: You fall asleep doing the following: Sitting and reading. Watching TV. Sitting in a theatre. Sitting in a car. You're supposed to mark the ones that apply to you, but my mom would have to check them all.
I didn't have time to fill out the survey; I had to price more items for the garage sale. My gosh, where . . . why did I buy all this stuff? And will I get rid of it?
I'll let you know tomorrow.
