Miss Delacourt Has Her Day  

Posted by Heidi in

Phew! I finally got that chicka married off! That's Heidi-speak for I "finished writing Miss D Two!" Yay! Can you believe I wrote the last third of the book (about 20,000 words) since I quit blogging? (It might look like I'm blogging now but don't believe it.) I love and miss you guys but I am so happy to get that done! I finished it on Friday so I beat my June 21st completion date by two days. Woo hoo! To celebrate, I am selling off my surplus of Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind for $18.00 which includes shipping (as long as supplies last). (I've always wanted to say that-it sounds so official.) If you are wishful to buy (I like that one too) email me at write2me@heidiashworth.com and we'll work out the details.
Meanwhile, the Middle Child has been smiling (though, sadly, not for the camera), I'm loving having The Spouse at home for the summer and my flowers are loving life. I have a little bit of tweaking to do before I submit Miss Delacourt Has Her Day to my editor and there are still those trellises to paint . . . any volunteers? (Seriously, though, thanks sooooooooooo much for all the prayers, emails and encouragement!)

Hooray, hooray, it's a beautiful day! Chocolate for everyone!

I'd brag it up here but I'm not sure if it's a secret. More from that later.

Either way, CONGRATULATIONS, HEIDS!!! I'm so very happy for you and thrilled about MC smiling!!

Warm and fuzzy congrats on getting the manuscript done. I am anxious to read it.

The painting and the other things you also want to do will feel like so much fun now that you have met your deadline! Wish I could come help you.

I almost forgot! The paper dolls came. YAY!! Thank you sooooo much. I love them. I can't decide if I should hide them away with the rest of my secret treasures or share them with my daughter who would enjoy them, but not TRULY appreciate the joy of a Jo paper doll.

I'm SO excited for you! What wonderful news, and wonderful progress all around.

June 24, 2009 at 2:38 PM

Yea for you! I can't wait. I'm currently loving Lucinda Barrington and her fashionable lisp. How in the world did you come up with that?

P.S. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. You are the best!

June 24, 2009 at 3:22 PM

Wow!!!! What an amazing accomplishment! I'm so sorry I didn't get the chance to come and hang out with you when we were down south, but now that I know where you are, we will have to catch up on our next trip home! And just think, if I had come to visit, we would have stayed up way too late gabbing and swapping stories, and you would have missed your deadline. So it's probably a good thing!

And I'm glad you liked the blankie!

June 24, 2009 at 5:33 PM

Oh lady. Good news!

And the Middle Child smiling? even better! :)

Ever since you made the announcement on Facebook, I've been thinking of you with happy thoughts. That is a major accomplishment! I'm so excited for you!


June 26, 2009 at 5:40 PM

I have said it a million times, but it is so awesome and such a talent that you can WRITE a book --and have it published. I hope you take great pride in that --let alone being a mom and all you other responsibilities. Sorry I haven't been blogging of late, things have been hectic, but I will try and do better.

June 28, 2009 at 6:13 PM

Yeah!! I can't wait to read Miss D Two.
I am glad that things are going better as well.

June 29, 2009 at 2:18 PM

Congrats on being finished. That must be the greatest feeling.

June 29, 2009 at 4:08 PM

High Five girl. I'm so proud of you! So so proud.

And happy too!


Can't believe you did it. Wow. IMPRESSED!

Can't wait to read it.
