Have you ever had one of those days when everything that could go wrong does go wrong? So what do you do? On Wednesday, a busy day where I had things to post on my other blog
, my Internet service refused to let me on. I did everything I knew to do and still the computer kept telling me it couldn’t connect. Grrrr. So what’s a girl to do? I worked on my wip, but kept trying to access the Internet every few minutes. I think I was having withdrawal symptoms. To add to my frustration, I had just bought a new printer (my other one that I dearly love) kept giving me messages that the black ink cartridge was damaged or missing, even though it was new and definitely there and I had gone through the process of cleaning and checking it out. I couldn’t connect the printer wireless so I connected it to the computer. At least I could print.
Some days are like that. Maybe to teach me patience and there is another world beside the Cyber World. Happy writing to you all.
Update on my MG contemporary story, STAR OF THE TEAM
A dream shattered.
Eleven-year-old Kate Taylor dreams of being the star of her basketball team, Angels. When Kate’s tooth is knocked out at one of the games, and her mother, who is also her coach, says she can’t play until the tooth the dentist replants heals, Kate’s dreams are in jeopardy. Add Emily, the new girl at school who claims she’s the best, and Kate faces a challenge to prove that she is the star.
Will Kate succeed? Or will Emily ruin Kate’s plans?
Due out soon.
