Yes indeed, Dr Jax came through. There was a large box waiting under the tree for me on Christmas Day and Dr Jax told me to be careful with it as it was heavy and fragile. I was a bit suspicious because he sometimes tricks me by putting small boxes in large ones and I was hoping that the large box was a trick. But then it was very heavy. So I was putting on my determined ‘so it’s not an iPhone but I will like whatever it is if it kills me’ face while I opened the box. And inside was a heavy, rusty piece of iron grille. And underneath that was the iPhone.
My hero. Sigh. 🙂
And I had another piece of happy news on Christmas Day too. I had emailed my completed character bios to the editor the night before and was not expecting a reply until next week at the very earliest. But in my inbox on Christmas Day (yes, I turned my PC on, on Christmas Day. Yes I am sad) was a reply saying she’d read them and thought they were good! And that my conflict looked fine and I was to send through my revised synopsis and partial!
So big relief for me. Finally I have some characters that will work and a conflict that looks good from the editors point of view. There were a few issues that she told me to keep an eye out for but I’m hopeful I can avoid them. Now all I have to do is to write a partial that she likes! Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Yeah, right. 🙂
Hope everyone’s Christmas was a happy one and here’s to a New Year filled with what you love to do best.
