This Week's Winner- Thing 1

Within a span of three days, Jordan (Thing 1) started kindergarten and learned to ride a two-wheeler! What a big week for her.

Thing 2, of course, was VERY jealous and did his best to make her life miserable. He drew on her art work, knocked down her sand castle, and for no reason at all said to me, "Sometimes I hate Jordan and her stupid mustache!" (Mustache? I have no idea where he gets these things from)

As for me, I got nothing. No news from my agent. No progress on my new PB. No spike in my blog stats.

I did have a little excitement, when I noticed that someone Googled, "Corey Schwartz and _____________" (Insert my agent's name in the blank). Let me just say, for a brief moment, my Hope Tank was full! I figured it must be an editor. Who else would Google my name with my agent's name? And, after all, I am out on sub.

But, of course, it could have been anyone. And if it was one of you, PLEASE tell me, so that my tank can go back to Empty where it belongs.

I remember getting a two-wheeler. Woo-hoo for Jordan. Milk moustache?
Tally--Things 1&2, agent, book on sub and your faithful blog followers. It's all good. And, hopefully, the tank gauge will hover where you want it.

Ooh! Definitely not us. Keep that Hope Tank on full my friend. I know it's dangerous, but it's also a little fun. I mean we're writers because we're dreamers right??

Keep us posted on future google alerts. And for the record, I'm so bitter that you're getting legit/exciting hits. We've got a stalker in Auckland, NZ and that's about it. Brutal.
