I'm not sure if this is a life-like statue of the woman who is buried there, but I'd like to think it is. I had lots of fun trying to capture her just right. Bright sunny days are not all that great for taking black & white photos – as I learned. And back then, I didn't discover that until I actually developed the film. That's when I made multiple trips back to the cemeteries. Thank goodness I didn't have to drive far!
On Friday, I think I was feeling anxious, thus my post. I've done a lot of thinking since then. Yeah, I'm not ready to go the self-publishing route right now. I have a lot to learn (and need more stories). However, if by the time our house is paid off and I'm not yet published, I will self-publish. That won't be for at least another four years (if we're lucky). I can probably get at least four more books written in that time.
In the meantime, I will continue to search for that dream agent, or a small press publisher (if the agent search is a bust). I still think those ways are the best, even if I won't pocket as much money. The experience alone is worth that.
So please excuse that little rant on Friday. I just get so impatient at times, and I really need to slow down. Feeling old isn't helping me any, either, but there's not much I can do about that.
Weekend was fun (but then, I didn't have to work, so why wouldn't it?). On Saturday, our friend visited and cooked (always a good time there!) and on Sunday we went to a Dragons Game. They actually won (they are currently in last place, so we were a bit doubtful). Got some editing done, but it's been slow because I'm taking an editing class (which has been really helpful).
