Seeing green

Happy Monday, all! Just got back from the Orange County Spring Writer's Day. Met sooo many new and enthusiastic writers! If you attended, good for you--now get crackin'! LOL

Sunday my fam and I spent the afternoon with Bethany House editors, Dave Long (Acquisitions) and Sarah Long (editing--she edited Chocolate Beach--woo-hoo!) We met up with them and author Kathryn Cushman, along with her lovely family just north of here. Despite drizzly weather, Katie's good-natured husband Lee took us out to sea in the family sailboat. Sweet!

But today I'm back to reality and the book I must edit before sending it to BHP on May 1. So, of course, I'm messing around with blog quizzes. This one caught my attention because of all the "green" buzz around here in California. The inconvenient truth is that green has taken on a whole new meaning, and I'm not convinced anyone really understands the entire scope of it. I'm not into the whole political scene, and I won't be coerced into certain habits just to look the part; however, I do believe in tending to the earth. God said we should, so there you go. Besides, he created it and it's BEAUTIFUL, can I get an Amen?

So here are my results. I especially enjoyed the last line, lol. How appropriate for those who know me. I just hope my editors agree that my "nice personality counteracts any strange habits" that I may have. LOL

You Are Teal Green

You are a one of a kind, original person. There's no one even close to being like you.
Expressive and creative, you have a knack for making the impossible possible.
While you are a bit offbeat, you don't scare people away with your quirks.
Your warm personality nicely counteracts any strange habits you may have.

Hi Julie! Glad you had a nice time at the conference! I would LOVE to attend a writing conference because one of my future aspirations is to write a book one day specifically to tell my story. However, we will see what happens with that! Good luck finishing your book! You can do it!!!:)

So do the nerves wear off after you have that contract, or do you still feel like you're a contestant in the Miss USA pageant when you have dinner with the editors?

Jamie--The chances of me ever being accepted into a beauty pageant are as good as Sanjaya being invited back to AI! That said, I guess I'd have to say that my nerves were kinda like the beauty contestant WITH a zit on her nose :*)
