Did the final run through, had to add some words to make some of the sentences work better. We're at 4370 words now, so yes I cut some others. It's printed on good paper and in the envelope with SASE and postcard. So as soon as I can get to the post office it'll be off (either tomorrow or Wednesday). I'm going to list it in submission now because I may not be able to update the site quickly after it's off.
So (as long as the river don't rise) I'll make my yearly goal by a week. Not exactly good because I try and set my goals low enough that I know I can make them. It's all about going beyond the goals. Most people look at goals as something to reach for, I look at them as something to vault. It's a perception thing.
