Today I attended my local RWA chapter's "Spring Into Writing" workshop, and was talked into pitching to an editor who attended.  SHE REQUESTED THE FULL!

I told her I have some changes to make and she said send it when I was ready.  AND her husband is a radiation oncologist so she actually knew what a medical physicist was.

All in all, a good meeting.  *g*

I have come to the conclusion that I cannot be productive on the book in late winter (Jan-March or so) but that is the topic for another post.  (Coming soon, I swear!)

I am typing this on my new, super-cute little netbook...yet another post waiting to be written.

But of most pressing and immediate relevance is that fact that I am in Florida, after a 15 hour drive (including stops - not bad with a 3-year-old in tow) to see the launch of Space Shuttle Discovery on STS-119 tomorrow.  If writing a novel was one of my goals in life, seeing a shuttle launch was another.  I was so ridiculously geeked out by seeing the shuttle on our way to the hotel (a spotlighted pinprick in the distance, but still) and Little Boy is as much - if not more so - into space as I ever was.  This is going to be fun.

To see updates on the shuttle and watch live feed of the launch, go here:

This is also Carol's neck of the woods, so I'm hoping I can meet up with her in person before the week is out (we're heading back on Saturday).  I have a copy of Cost of Freedom I need signed...
