I love to Celebrate the Small Things 

This week Western New York was hit with Blizzard 2 for the season. And we were prepared! I did not hear of one fatality due to the storm. That's a celebration!

Murphy Jack Applesauce (my dog) loves, loves the snow. It makes me laugh to see him rolling and rooting in it.

I totally changed and reworked the ending to my ms due to the advice of my critique person. This took all week and I believe, I hope, it's finally finished. But like most writers, I'll be breezing through rewording and all that other crazy stuff.

Thanks to Vikki at Scribblings of an Aspiring Author for starting this awesome Celebration. Hop on over to her site and join in the fun.

  2. Dogs are such a pleasure. Yours is too cute.

    I hope that the reworked ending really pulls your MS together. It is a blessing to have CP who critique constructively.

  7. I wonder if dogs like snow because it doesn't smell. If you're bombarded by a million smells a day, maybe it's nice to get a respite. Congrats on your rewriting - and yay for CPS. They're priceless. :)

  14. My dog used to love the snow, too. His fleas did not, so both the dog and I were joyful. Great that you guys were prepared for the storm and no one was injured. Here's to more writing successes!
