All what?

My Nightshade City edits are off to my editor and now, my finished manuscript, Edwin Copperpot, is off to my agent. I feel slightly lost having nothing to write! Don't get me wrong, I had a great day with my husband and kids, it's just been so long since I've had a writing break, even a brief one, I feel a little when you leave your cell phone at home and you suddenly feel disconnected from the entire planet!

Okay, I'm going to relax for the rest of the weekend and try not to go crazy waiting on word from both my editor and agent. Frankly, I'm not sure which I'm more worried about. I'm confident with the job I did on both, but then again those second guesses creep up on me the minute I click the send button! Nothings worth doing if you don't have to work (or pull your hair out) for it, right?

All right, putting my frazzled brains on holiday for a few days. Having a few cookies now and watching Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with my son and husband! Willa Wonka can take a girl's mind off anything!
