On Waiting ... Interpreters ... Pagan Gods ....

First of all, I'd like to say welcome to our new Ink Lady! I look forward to reading your posts.
Ahh ... news? I'm still waiting, how's that? It's going to happen though. I can feel it.
I had a friend read my newest novel the other day, the one the publisher's still holding onto - he loved it - raved about it in fact. He did correct a few of my Spanish mistakes. No, I don't speak Spanish. Yes, I did use some Spanish in my new book. I also used some Nahuatl, but haven't found anyone who speaks that language to do any proofing yet. I believe I'm okay on that one as I used a pretty decent online translator for the words I needed.
I also used the names of a dozen Aztec gods. My mother's biggest complaint was that she couldn't pronounce any of their names. How do you pronounce Huitzilopotchli anyway?
Actually, I figured them all out and my friend, the one who knows Spanish, can pronounce them all!
Tomorrow ... yes, I believe I'll visualize an acceptance tomorrow. I do have to warn you that I may not wait for my scheduled blogging day to post my good news though.

Oh Robyn, good luck! I'll visualize an acceptance for you tomorrow, too! It will happen, it will. Don't ever give up.

Waiting is no fun. I hope you hear soon.
