Today is a special day

Fourteen years ago today, Sept. 28, 1996, I married my lovely wife, Jennifer. It was, and remains to this day, the best thing I have ever done in my life. (That's her at left, sans roller derby garb.)

This will be a very short post, since we are doing what everyone does on their anniversary -- eating a quick dinner at Panera's so we can make roller derby practice. Eh. Life goes on.

No writing updates today, since once again real life took center stage. At this point, I'm just hoping to get back into the swing of things by next week. I still have more than a dozen queries out, and I'm still contemplating adding to/changing the end of The Devil You Don't Know, based on feedback from a trusted writer friend.

Also, no word yet from Writer's Digest on whether I will be doing some pieces for them. I sent in a couple of story pitches (sort of like mini query letters) per the managing editor and was told I would likely hear something this week. We shall see.

I'm glad more people are able to read and comment on the newly redesigned blog. I suppose I'll get used to the brown, although I do miss the old coffee cup/cafe design. Still, I'm happy to switch it out if it means hearing from old friends again.

Hope you all have a good and productive night. It's time for derby practice!


  1. Happy anniversary! I'm enjoying reading your wife's blog, too.

  2. Happy Anniversary. You should be very proud, she's very beautiful.

    And don't change the brown. I like it, it's soothing.

  3. yeah. the brown is soothing, it's like we're IN the coffee cup! yummm!!!

  4. Happy Anniversary!

    Nothing wrong with a quick dinner and roller derby practice. At least you remembered!

    My husband and I forgot our 7th, 8th and 9th, had a quick dinner out while the kids were at baseball practice for our 10th.

    So it goes....
