just a few blessings

I’d made a note to myself a couple weeks ago to give myself permission to appreciate the good things in my life. And then life got a little too crazy-busy for a couple of weeks for me to remember I was going to do that. I’ve heard some bad news from a couple people today, and there’ve been other complications for those close to me, so I’m just going to jot a handful. Before it all gets away from me again. So…

Blessing #1: a client nominated for the Campbell Award
Blessing #2: a client nominated for the RITA Award
Blessing #3: a client nominated for the Hugo Award
Blessing #4: a 3 book offer on a 2 book proposal (!!!)
Blessing #5: two clients on this month’s Locus Bestseller List

New Note to Self: Flowers smelly. Stop.

  1. Blessing #3 should be a client nominated for two Hugo Awards, in two different categories. Unless you’re thinking of someone else… πŸ™‚
    (And the book is proceeding well.)

  2. Flowers smelly. Stop.
    I can’t decide if this is a telegram statement or a suggestion to yourself that you not buy any more flowers. Or maybe that you stop sniffing them. Whichever it is, it’s clearly a very interesting statement to me. πŸ™‚
    Yay Jennclients!

  3. Congratulations to your various clients!
    And oh wow, Sarah Harmer. πŸ™‚ She appears on one of my Great Big Sea records!

  4. Very nice. Congratulations to all involved.

  5. Blessing number 6: home safe, warm and dry, and much-missed.
    Welcome back!

  6. Wow, congratulations on all that! How wonderful to hear!

  7. I hope the complications ease without pain, and keep enjoying the flowers.

  8. *stops to smell the agent*
    oooh, it’s that new book smell.
    great news about your clients! hope the rest gets better.

  9. A line up that you should be very, very proud of.
    And if not flowers, what about something else to treat yourself?

  10. Congrats on all the award nominations and bestseller appearances. I am personally mystified how you wrangled a 3 book deal out of a 2 book proposal, but it is a business model I think I shall attempt to mimic!

  11. >>*stops to smell the agent*
    >>oooh, it’s that new book smell.
    I can’t stop reopening these comments to read this over and over again. It makes me crack up every time. πŸ™‚
