Happy New Year

Well, here we are, 2011, and what an auspicious beginning it is.

As you all know I submitted Daffodils in December, no definite news yet, but it does look promising. I've already been asked for a rewrite because of the growing season of daffodils. And yes, I did research this as I wrote the story, but I tried to stretch things a bit too far. Those poor daffodils that my character planted in September would never have survived.

See, it's all in the details. Hopefully I'm a much better writer than gardener!

So what else is in store for 2011 you ask? Well, does anyone remember the story A Piece of Heaven? the story that started right here on my blog? Yup, that one is finished and waiting in the wings. Ready to submit once I know the fate of Daffodils. And guess what...I'm starting the sequel for A Piece of Heaven tonight.

Oh, and then there's "the doggy story," as my daughter named it. That one's due for a rewrite so I can get it re-submitted. It's been sitting waiting for quite some time. I'll be working on that soon.

So keep in touch! I'm hoping to have lots of good news for you here this year. So keep writing and reading. You never know where God will plant inspiration for you - or a message you might need.

God bless you all in this precious New Year!


  1. Donna,

    Wow, you have lots going on. I wish you the best of success.

  2. Good luck & God's blessings with all of these and many more!


  3. Thanks, Pam. I'm looking forward to your next one, too!

  4. Donna, I wish you the best on all these projects. And I saw a great title in your post - "The Fate of Daffodils." Any room for a sequel there?

  5. Nope, not on this one, Kara Lynn! Wish there was, that's really cute. I'm working on another sequel that's untitled so far (course I'm only 5 pages into it), maybe I'll come see you for that one! LOL

  6. Hi, Donna! Glad to hear there's so much writing going on for you!! The projects sound awesome! God bless, and keep us posted!

  7. Donna, many good wishes for your interesting sounding projects. Please let us know as soon as you get a contract. Perseverance pays off.
