Fear: knowing it has to go off to my agent request in a little over a week.
Joy: only three more scenes, a proposal and a couple critter's eagle eyes before I'm gulp...done.
Fear: hoping to rock these scenes and blow them out of the water!
Joy: a little over a week I can start a NEW STORY
Fear: do I really want to write 50,000 words or more in the same month as the Thanksgiving holiday?
Joy: I have a fabulous opportunity to send my novel to a great agent who wants to see it no matter what.
Fear: it has to go through her assistant first...and what if the assistant hates my characters like 50% of the population has been inclined to behave?
Joy: (and completely random) Downton Abbey season 3 is available from this Facebook page in the U.S. :D
Fear: that the season won't last nearly long enough to erase the sorrow of episode #5.
Joy: cheering a great accountability partner to a smashing success this week!
Fear: that she'll let overwhelming tasks discourage her success (you know who I'm talking about, AP...;-)
Joy: picking out new glasses--the first pair I've ever been really excited about getting. ;-)
Fear: that people will think the Nine West brand is snobbish.
Joy: while there is frost on the ground every morning, I have a box of Lipton Blackberry Vanilla to sip.
Fear: that the frost will turn into snow.
Joy: I don't have to go back to work until Tuesday. (four more days to play with my novel!!)
Fear: I have to go back to work on Tuesday.
Joy: my brother turns nine on Tuesday.
Fear: that he'll let this go to this head. (not that it hasn't already... ;-)
Joy: said brother has also made friends with our adopted-us-not-us-adopting-them kittens
Fear: we're not cat people. ((don't hate me!))
Joy: my blog hit over 700 hundred followers this week! (THANK YOU!!)
Fear: that you'll eventually catch on to what's really going on around here... ;-)
Joy: planning a Skype date with a super-sweet writer friend next week
Joy: talking to an awesome and dear writer Alley Cat this afternoon. :D
Joy: Tamera Alexander's latest novel is headed for my doorstep!!
Joy: November is almost here. One of my favorite months.
Joy: it's Friday! 'nuff said.
Joy: that the 'joy' side of this post HEAVILY outweighs the fear side. :D
What are your week's joys and fears?
Have a great Friday, friends!!
