Happy Birthday To Me! :D

Well, my dream of becoming a teen author has offically flown the coop.

But that's OK. For the longest time I wasn't looking forward to growing up, and now, I think I'm embracing it better than I was before. Life is strange, isn't it?

So now I have set a new goal. I want to be published in my twenties.

But if it doesn't happen till I'm 99, then that's fine too! :D

Happy Birthday Madison!

I'll spare you by not singing.

¡Feliz cumpleanos!

(That's "Happy birthday!" in Spanish.)

For what it's worth, I'm not even 2 years older than you are, and I can say that I am SO GLAD that the novel I finished last year didn't get published. I look at it now and think "Eeek. Still needs major revision."

So you might be relieved that that first goal flunked a lot sooner than you might think.

Charlie, thanks for not singing. My whole family sings it to me countless times because I don't like it. :p

Carradee, what I do have written (except for one story that I'm querying) I am glad that nothing I wrote during my teen years got published while I was a teen. Also, promoting a book is hard work and a real job. I don't think I could have handled it as a teen, but now I feel ready! :D

Thanks to both of you for your good wishes! :D
