NTAI Shoes...

Okay... they're not expensive, they're not boots, but I bought them because I've just pressed SEND on my current partial.

That's right, TMMCF first three chaps and synopsis have winged their way through cyber space and hopefully landed on a desk at Richmond!!

Ridiculous... but practically the MOMENT I pushed SEND, I started compulsively checking my email. Obviously I needed something to distract myself :) So... in the style of Jackie Ashenden I went online (hey, I live in the country and can only buy Rossi Boots near by) and bought myself a pair of nice, dressy black sandals.
Now... it's onward and upward with chapter four!!!

I'm always lurking at your blog (makes me sound like a stalker :-))
but wanted to say good luck with your current sub.


Sri Pammi said...

Suzanne Jones said...

Veeery nice.

Fingers crossed for your partial.


Angie Peters said...

Nice shoes. Very appropriate considering summer's coming up.

Like Sri, I'm usually lurking at your blog too (any other lurker's out there?)

So I've come out from lurkdom to wish you all the best of luck with your current submission.

R u doing NaNoWriMo this year?

Cathryn Brunet said...

Ooh, they're groovy. Wouldn't mind a pair myself.

Good luck, Rach. You have bucketloads of goodwill behind you, not to mention talent!

Becca J. Heath said...

Noice shoes too!!

Jackie Ashenden said...

Love the shoes! We all need a pair once that sub is on it's way. Crossing everything I have for you.
I'll be wearing mine once my synopsis is done!

Rachael Johns said...

Lacey Devlin said...

Lurrrvveee the shoes! A huge hug and congrats on the sub! There's nothing wrong with a little OCD when it comes to checking your email for editors demanding the rest of your manuscript :D

Janette Radevski said...

Noice - and well deserved!

Suzanne Brandyn said...

Try not to go too crazy during the wait. Says me. :-)

Good luck with the sub Rach. And enjoy those shoes :-)

Eleni Konstantine said...

Congrats on sending out your partial - and that's a good reason to get a pair of shoes! ;)

Caitlyn Nicholas said...

Oh the waiting. Endure it bravely :). Love that you rewarded yourself for a job well done. Its a policy of mine as well.


Rachael Johns said...

Thanks again to all you other special people, who'd commented since I last stopped by!

And a HUGE hello to Maisey - I will check your blog out tomorrow when I'm not so knackered from relief teaching all day :)
