Contests, Revisions & Catching the 3:10 to Yuma

The outline scene sheets are done. Tomorrow I am going to slap the post its on the storyboard, give it a quick review and by Tuesday I'll be buckling down and starting the revisions. I can't wait to get this book done and out. I feel like I've been working on it too long and it's time to get it in the can.

In other good news, I found out the other day that Brimstone finaled in the historical category of the Toronto RWA Original Golden Opportunity Contest, so that was a nice piece of news to pick up when you're in the middle of revisions. The submission now goes to Leis Pederson at Berkley for final ranking and I'll hear in mid-October where I placed.

Our chapter meetings start up again next weekend (coinciding nicely with softball playoffs so Sunday should prove a rushed day to get from ball field to meeting on time). I'm looking forward to getting back into the regular groove of meetings and finishing up my last 4 months as El Presidente. After four years on the executive I'm ready to kick back and let someone else handle the job next year!

The weight watchers is going great. I've lost 6 lbs so far, just 8 lbs to go. This points thing is so easy it should be illegal.

And just 5 days until 3:10 to Yuma!! It's getting great reviews (quelle suprise) and I can't wait to see it. But for today, I am off to the Atlantic Fringe Festival to check out a thing with a medium. Should be interesting.
