VANDAL! That's awesome! Wishing you another sale!

And Silver, I'm passing you some virtual saltines. It's great that your agent keeps you in the loop like that, even though it's hard on the nerves.

I just did something I haven't done in years—I posted a "good news" thread. http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/...d.php?t=225900

WW - thanks for the smacks - need them, I do. (I always channel Yoda when I'm under the influence of NyQuil). Just the usual writer-crap-angst-doubt - it will pass...I hope.

Oh, and I hereby declare angsty and doubtiness as official Purg-words.
