Regarding the possible project I’ve been hinting at…I promised an update, didn’t I?
I need to begin with an apology that I won’t be able to give you a fuller update. I really thought I would have more to share today, but instead, I mainly have a lot of questions that won’t be answered right off. At the very least, I can say I’ve been given a yellow light of sorts. It’s definitely not green, but I don’t think it’s red either, from what I can read (my vision is a bit hazy this morning – perhaps I need more coffee!).
Short answer: My proposal has been sent back to me with a request for more. So, we’re on hold…
Well, you’re on hold. I’m clearly not on hold and have some work ahead of me. I’m just not exactly sure what that means right off. Today will be a day of processing and prayer and further conversations with the editor with whom I’ve been working. I wasn’t convincing enough to merit a meeting with acquisitions, so we’ll see what can happen from here and whether I have it in me to produce the book that is being envisioned by others.
In the meantime, I’m very pleased to be able to share something with a bit more certainty this morning. My friend Clara at Authentic Woman blog is featuring my ruminations today. A bright spot in my morning has been remembering this and being able to share it with you.
Thanks again for being there…
And if you’re disappointed, be assured, I wasn’t kidding about the God’s-will thing yesterday. It’s all in His hands and I continue to trust.
