My favorite camping photo and random publishing thoughts

I'm up early and I'm already doing landry at 6:15 a.m. Something is seriously wrong with me. I just couldn't stay in bed....too much stuff to do. You know how it is when you return from camp/vacation.

Plus I haven't done any crafts for a week! I'm having withdrawl. I'm going to make something today and post it, but I must get the laundry done first! ***she says trying not to laugh***

The above picture is my absolute favorite from our camping trip. It's my kids, in their clothes, running into the lake, hand in hand, at sunset! I think I'm going to get it enlarged for my craft room.

My birthday is at the end of the month and I'm thinking about sending a story into a publisher before then. I'm the type of person who must have a deadline or I just procrastinate until I die. I haven't submitted anything in a long while (I'm not good with rejection...words of affirmation are my love language). I mean other than writing for the local paper and for this blog, my words aren't seen by many. More readers than five years ago, but still not as many as I would like.

I'm going to do it. I'm going to take the plunge. After all, I can handle rejection! I'm a mother.

Awesome picture! Our family went camping about a month ago and we had a fantastic time. Every child should experience it! Thanks for sharing your picture! I still have to "scrap" mine!

Totally do it. Yeah rejection sucks, but like you said, you're a big girl!!!
Do it do it do it.
