Right.  Well I have done it.  I have GONE AND DONE IT!  I have finished Medusa’s Garden (and I kept the title), I have tweaked, fiddled, edited and played with it until, on Sunday Afternoon, I was totally satisfied that this was a story I could submit.  And it is ready to go.  Just working on the query letter and I will get it sent.

Am I nervous?  Yes and no.  Yes, because it is a “baby” that I have sent off.  No, because whatever happens, I have done my best on the story, and I am happy with it.  It is gets accepted, that is fantastic.  If it doesn’t, it was worth the experience.

So as I wrap up one project, I am onto my next, which is editing for The End is Nigh over at KiwiWriters.  I am still unsure which project to work on – I have three which all could really fit into the category, but at this stage, I am probably leaning towards getting Of Kings Queens and Noblemen finished, it is edited to about half way through, so getting the rest of it finished would be a good start, then getting it out to beta readers (anyone interested – Fantasy romance?).  I also have the Gothic novel and ice planet story to finish, but I think KQ&N will give me enough of a challenge for now.

Next in the writing ideas?  I don’t know.  The fairy idea is still brewing.  The dragon one is not on the boil, so not yet.  I guess I will just have to wait and see where the next part of my life takes me.

  1. I can’t believe it’s almost August!!! Totally crept up on me. Good luck with the submission. As you say, you’ve done your best, which is all anyone can do. Well done on getting it done, and on sending it out into the world 🙂

  2. Congrats, Catherine. Sounds good. It also sounds as if you are doing well. I’m very glad to hear it. As fate would have it, I just returned from the writer’s cave this morning. I lost my small publisher recently and decided to go “all in”, as they say, with Amazon and being fully Indie.
    Here’s wishing the both of us the best of luck as we move forward.
    Take care,


  3. Hey Jimmy, life is getting exciting again with being able to write, but then it is tempered with the fact that I have a mental illness. The last few days have been tough, but the weather hasn’t been conducive to getting out either. But I am thankful for all the good things in my life, and having supportive writing friends is high up my list.

    How exciting to be doing it yourself! You will succeed – because you put the time and effort in. Good luck!

    Thanks for all your positive comments!

    Take care

    • You are most welcome. In the beginning your posts had a darkness to them, but lately no more. Prayers and well-wishes your way, my friend, that that trend continues…
