YOWZERS! I'm baaaaack

Holy smokes, peeps. I just realized my last blog was June 25?!!! How can that be? Oh yeah, life...it happens.

So, I'm excited to say that I did get a fabulous job! After four years in high school, I've gone back to teaching MS or 8th grade specifically. I did five years of 8th grade(and one year of 7th) before moving on up to HS. I love, love my new school. It's only 35 minutes from home. The kids are great, and I love my coworkers. MS kids have a lot more time for reading--Language Arts/English and Reading are two separate classes, and they also participate in Reading Countst through Scholastic. So, I'm looking forward to being able to share my writing, along with the writing of my writer buds and peeps in the YA community, with the kids.

Thanks to everyone who sent me prayers and love and support when my job got cut!! I couldn't have made it without you guys cuz it was some dark, dark times!!

As for the agent front, I'm still waiting. Have come close...working on some R&R's. I feel like at any mintue there will be good news...while other days, it feels like I'll never be agented again!!! You know, the normal agent agnt or submission angst!! It's also weird that we're still waiting for the final nos(okay, or maybe yes's!) from some pubs, so it feels weird to be agent searching and be on sub. PASS ME A DRINK AND SOME CHOCOLATE!!!

I know I've lost a couple of followers for not blogging. Sorry guys, but life just got in the way. I've had illness in the family as well, so that's made it hard to blog and keep up with blog. I even turned my back on Twitter for awhile.

Welcome back! And it must feel great to have a job where you don't have to drive as far as you were driving! Are you teaching any fun books?
