Today I'm celebrating the fact that, despite the time crunch of getting ready for going home (cleaning and closing the house here in Trasulfe, saying goodbye to neighbors and friends), I managed to submit on of my books to a publisher, and I finally downloaded all my pictures from the trip and did a post about it next door at Elizabeth Varadan's Fourth Wish. You can read about the first leg of our fall journey -- the two weeks we spent in India -- HERE.
For two days I'll be offline, but, once home, I'll hop around and visit your sites, eager to catch up on your news and cheer you on. Hasta entonces.

I'm celebrating three things today, but first, hats off to co-hosts for this blog hop, Lexa Cain @ Lexa Cain , L.G. Keltner @ Writing Off The Edge , and Tonja Drecker @ Kidbits Blog You can go to any of these sites to get all the links and add your name to the links.
What am I celebrating?
1. I finished the draft of my book and sent it to my writing group. We'll be discussing it next month, after I return home. This, of course, will mean another rewrite, but hopefully the final one, so I can start submitting it.
2. We went to Portugal again for a few days. Our trips to Portugal started out as research trips for the book I just finished. Each time I get more and more details that will help "fine tune" the book. But in the meantime, we've developed some wonderful friendships that mean a lot to us. We took tons of pictures, as usual, and in due course they will make their way to my blog -- probably my next door blog (The Fourth Wish).
3. I'm at work now on a new "Imogene" story. I actually have a series planned, but this is a story to be included in an anthology. It's great fun to write (I like Imogene) and it's going well. I want to finish this draft by the end of this month and submit it to my other writing group. (I belong to two: one for YA/NA/Adult works and one for PB/MG works. Both groups are wonderful, and I count myself very lucky.)
I also feel lucky that many of you have faithfully returned to this site, waiting for me to get on with blogging again. I assure you, I've missed it, and it's nice to be back.
How about you? Have you had to "go dark" for the sake of a manuscript? Do you write in more than one genre? Do you belong to a writing group? More than one group?
