Let's Limbo!

Bloggie friends!! I’m in limbo!
I’m impatient and waiting for Crimbo!

(Crimbo - Christmas!)

I won a random critique of the first ten pages of my novel (yay!! Thank you Shannon Whitney Messenger) so while they are being dissected (the pages, not Shannon! LOL!) I can’t seem to carry on with my edits or even write a short story until I know the verdict!

So in the meantime I am subjecting you all to my bad poetry! LOL

Charlie says: I like my hat



Thank you so much Andy and Sammy and mum from Sammy and Andy's Place for hatting Charlie and giving him a terrific cap!

Have a tantric Tuesday everyone!

Crimbo!!! I haven't heard that word for years ... brings back fond memories of school friends!

You could be at an impasse waiting for Christmas (but only if you are in the Caribbean!) lol

Congratulations! I'm sure you'll get back very worthwhile notes from Shannon! Loving on Charlie's hat. Is that what you've been doing while you wait? Taking pictures of Charlie in different hats?

Oh you, go write a story! :) But also take a few pictures. Gotta get my Charlie fix.

Aah...the nail-biting wait for a critique. I know it well.

Charlie, you look handsome as always.

Congrats on the critique! I hope it really helps (and totally hear you on stagnation while you wait--it is hard to just keep going when feedback is coming)

Snappy hat. :D

Sammy and Andy said...

We are looking forward to the day all the boxes are unpacked and mama and us can spend a day in total limbo!!!!!!!

We know you will have a good result from the editing, OK. You do great work.

And we're sooooooo happy handsome Charlie liked mama's hatting.

Love to both of you.

Good luck with your critique! I love getting that sort of feedback. :)

Melissa Gill said...

Great hat. Charlie looks quite the gentleman. (But it covers up those oh so interesting black patches near his ears.)

Talli Roland said...

Love love LOVE the hat! Charlie looks like a young Oliver Twist. The cute cat version.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Oh I am so behind - congrats on the critque win! And oh, I understand about getting impatient for Crimbo - I just love this time of year. We are lucky here because at least we have Thanksgiving to tide us over (you could always just make up a holiday for this time of year!)

And Charlie you look so handsome in your hat! Sammy and Andy's mom did such a great job!!

Shannon Whitney Messenger said...

Aw, so sorry to leave you in limbo for so long. I had to pick up a couple extra shifts at work last week *grumbles* so I am a little behind on my reading. But I promise feedback as soon as possible. Keep a weather eye on the horizon--er--email inbox. :)

Manzanita said...

I'm sure your critique will be the most positive. I really like your writing. Since we've been Bloggy friends, you've inspired me with your mention of writing. I haven't written in years and I've gone through some old short stories and I think I'll have a "go" at it again. (Like my plate isn't full enough, huh?) Ideas do twirl around in one's head, don't they????

Clarissa Draper said...

Hello, Charlie!

I'm so happy about your critique. Let us know how it turns out.

klahanie said...

Hi there,
It's me, Penny. I really hope you get a pawsitive critique.
I think your poetry is really neat. Makes me want to tap my feet...umm paws lol
I think Gary should put up postings of just photos of me and some captions saying how adorable I am.
What do you think about that? Thanks and pawsitive wishes, Penny:-)
