|Ducks on the Lake at James Madison University|
It's amazing how much goes on in the online world when you step away for a day or two. I feel overwhelmed and a little bit like I won't catch up...but then I remind myself that I don't really have to read every blog and see every Facebook post and try to take deep breaths.
I have received four entries for the book so far and they are truly amazing stories. I would like to get an idea of how many people are out there scribbling away for me, so if you are planning on submitting a chapter for the book, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. I am right now in the process of reading submissions, finding someone to draw up the release form I need, and figuring out how the book will be laid out. Oh, and it would probably be a good idea if I write something myself!
Remember, the deadline for submissions is September 30, 2011. I believe this project is going to take several months to possibly a year before it is ready for submission to a publisher. Of course, once the kids go back to school and depending on how many submissions I get, it could be sooner. One can hope.
Meanwhile, back at the homestead, I need to go check the garden (what's left of it), try to straighten up around here a little bit (since Jack decided to eat one of Joey's Pokemon toys I didn't get to in time), and think about possibly making dinner. Walking that campus yesterday was an incredible experience, but my legs are really screaming today. Even though we did the "no steps" tour, it's a really big school!
