And no longer waiting; obviously there's a lot of stuff I can neither confirm nor deny, but: I had goals. All of them were achieved.

And I finally bought a new bed, after these long two years. It's a canopy bed. We're going to adorn it with fairy lights and various accoutrements.

We're having a yardwork day on Saturday; rototilling and clearing out the back yard entirely, in preparation for doing intentional planting. We consulted a landscape design person to pick native, easy-care plants, and we're planning a few garden beds, an herb spiral, wildflowers, and a lot of berry bushes - currant, elderberry, blueberry, blackberry. And we've reserved room for a seating area. This will finally be usable space and not a source of stress!

But first, the tilling and the hauling, and if you want to/can help, you are welcome to! And if you happen to have bricks or stone lying around that we can use for the herb spiral, let us know!

And my audition for The Thing is Sunday. Meep!

But today's mission: synopsis. I have queried all the agents I think would be great fits who *don't* require one, and now I have this big list of great agents who *do*, and... I gotta get it done.

Writing a novel is easy. Writing a synopsis is hard.

But I must do it today, so I can then focus on my audition material for Sunday, the story that I started last week, and, hell, everything else.

Fairy lights for your lovely new bed!

And congratulations with achieving goals and no longer having that Dink* of Damocles hanging over your head.



*I'm trying to be polite. I thought of other words first.
