Celebrate the Small Things-May 6, 2016

It's Friday!  Let's Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain!  Tonja Drecker and I are her co-hosts.

This has been a crazy week!  As all of you must know, the IWSG anthology Parallels: Felix Was Here came out.  Being a part of this whole thing has been amazing!

I finished and submitted a short story.  Whether it's accepted or rejected, this still means I've submitted three short stories so far in 2016.  Considering I set a goal of submitting six short stories, I'm well on track to fulfill that goal.  I'm happy about that.

I've jumped into novella revision, and while it's a challenging task, I'm making progress.

The weather here has been gorgeous the last couple of days. I've been spending a lot of time outside with the kids.  And speaking of kids, Lyle's birthday is next Wednesday.  He's going to be five, and he's excited about it.  It's all he can talk about.

What would you like to celebrate?
