Letting Go

 It was insanely hard to let go and this surprised me.  I managed to keep editing and tweaking this week, terrified to send my “firstborn” out into the world.  

Is she ready?  Is she good enough?  Most likely yes.  It is I who is a nervous wreck.  Especially when I had technical difficulties when sending my child away from home.  I’m waiting for a reply from the submissions people as I write this.

This week I barely got any sleep, so ignore the goofy one holding the binder!

It is FINISHED.  Good, Bad, or Indifferent.  I will keep you updated with the “Involuntary Tourist”s status as it emerges into the real world. 

Oh, and my URL (the Http:// part of this site) will be changing.  I have my own domain now. This blogsite will soon be at ‘JodiLeasPlace.blog’.  Cool, huh?

Yawn!  It’s nap time, people.  I must store up some energy for my Happy Dance. He He



It’s been a slow crawl, but I finally finished my Novel!  I have a ton of “clean-up” to do and editing of course, but I’m DONE.

Note: The Winner Badge does not mean I won a contest. It means I have over 50,000 words written. The exact count (before editing) is 59,905.

The book has a new title, a new direction in some of it and it crossed genres.  The story is the same because, well, it’s really cool…

I may post snippets of the story here and there – so check in once in a while

15 Seconds of Fame, Sort of

I say “sort of” because I personally was not on TV, but someone mentioned me during their TV interview. Not by name however, so
only a handful of people know it was I who was mentioned, but that doesn’t bother me. The point is – I am thrilled and very proud!

The interviewee is my granddaughter that plays football. I may have mentioned her once or twice in this blog over the years – HA!  If you are bored with my talented granddaughters, you don’t have to play the video…
