Something to Say and Editor's Day

Hi, my name is Anna, and I am in my thirties.  A coworker reminded me that I only have today and tomorrow remaining to say that, so I am saying it in abundance.  I am in my thirties!  I am, I still am!

I decided only to blog if I had something to say, and I think the above qualifies, don't you?

Also, Editor's Day this weekend was awesome and fantastic and other fun, exclamatory words, and I am so glad I was able to hobble around and make my way there!

Among those I had the pleasure of seeing were my past instructor and mentor, A. LaFaye, and her daughter, Adia.

I also was ecstatic to see Nancy O'Connor again, who completed the MFA program with me at Spalding University in Louisville, KY.  Here is Nancy on the right, and me on the left.

I met a ton of new people, and listened to some great speakers, and learned a lot.  I also was very pleased with my manuscript critique, and am revising the first three chapters of Seneca to submit officially to the esteemed person who performed the critique.  I am stoked, and life is good, but busy.

I'm glad I actually had something to say, and will try to think of more things to blog in the near future.  I hope life is great for everyone reading this!


  1. What fun! I only have a year left in my 30s, so next September I'll be saying it every day! "I'm in my 30s..." Here's to our 40s being the best years of our lives.

  2. I'm with Stephanie. One more year...well almost. I'll be doing it in August. Congrats on so many things: the birthday, the critique, the rewrites, etc.

  3. Happy pre-birthday. I'll be double 4's next month. Talk about feeling old lol. A little history that might help. I actually felt older when turned 41. BECAUSE when I turned 40 I could say "I'm 40." But when I turned 41, then I was actually IN my 40's. So if it's any consolation, you aren't actually IN your 40's till you turn 41. So you still have a year.

  4. Happy Birthday! I'm running out time in my thirties soon too. (Okay, I still have two years, but that seems really short.) Best of luck with your submission!


Yay, comments! I adore comments! Thank you! (They will appear after I release them).
