Well, dear friends, I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that I will need to take about two weeks off. I plan to return to blog writing on or before October 1st.
The good news is that I sent a proposal to a publisher, and after reviewing the submission, they want to see the full manuscript. It's not the same thing as a contract. But it's good news. It's very good news.
The manuscript is written, but only 1/2 of it is edited. So, I'm deep in subject/verb agreements and its/it's and their/they're/there and syntax and semantics and pronoun/antecedent agreement searches. So I will see you when the editing is finished.
