Best Laid Plans

Are generally the ones that blow up in our face.

Well, had my nice neat query and synopsis all set to go on Friday. I went to the post office after work, ready to mail it out to Harlequin Blaze. It’s going to Canada and requires a self addressed stamp envelope so I can get my response for them. Nooo problem. Right?


They, or course, don’t carry Canadian postage. Didn’t expect them too. But they also didn’t have the international reply coupons that are required. So no luck there. I go to another post office. THAT post mistress told me she didn’t think they even have them anymore.

So this is ridiculous! How in the world am I to get my beautiful Q & S, which could change my whole life and boost my writing career, to where it needs to go???? I was given much needed advice from writing friends, that I have to request the IRCs from the post office, and they order them (I think they should have them on hand anyway). I may try a different post office this week.

But come on, folks, this shouldn’t be this difficult!

Ahhh, the joys of living in a small town.

Oh, and I have new neighbors. Again.

  1. Not sure yet. They just moved in yesterday. There was such a big crowd of people there I’m not even sure which ones are the neighbors. We’re hoping for the older couple with the preteen daughter as opposed to the young couples.
