Adventures & Victories: Week 2

Adventures & Victories: Week 1

My time in Europe is drawing to a close. I’ve loved being here so when I think about it too much, I start to get a little melancholy. So instead, I’ve chosen to think about all the adventures & victories I’m looking forward to at home: home-cooked meals, laundry in my own house, and no longer living out of a suitcase. Even more than that, I can’t wait to see my family, friends, and of course my little pug, Pascal. God has blessed me with a great life, and I get to go back to it. There’s nothing sad about that!

  1. Adventure: I got to go to Neuschwanstein Castle, otherwise known as Cinderella’s castle. It was set against the background of snowy mountains and it was the most beautiful thing. There will be a full post on it in December!
  2. Major victory!!! I finished the sentence-level read through of my novel, Storm Warning, and added where needed to hit 75,000 words. It’s super excited!!! I have one final read through to go and then I will sent it off to the agent who requested it. Ahh! I’m thrilled and starting to get a little nervous lol.
  3. Victory: I repacked my bags a couple times, and finally arraigned them so I could handle them easily while traveling on my own–since *sniffle* Alan and I have now parted for the end of our journey. (He’s off to work outside of Milan, and I’m off to visit my aunt in London.) Wednesday, I managed subways and trains on my own and Friday, I will tackle more subways and the flight.
  4. Vicarious adventure: This week I read Gathering Shadows, a romantic suspense by Nancy Mehl.  Wynter’s younger brother was kidnapped when he was seven years old. A decade later, a picture of a teenager draws her to a small Mennonite town. Warnings, danger, and love ensues 🙂
  5. Adventure/Victory: I just got the galleys in for Sketchy Tacos. This is the last chance I get to make any changes to the manuscript, so it’s a bit terrifying! And also super exciting because the document they sent me actually looks like a book!!!!

What were your adventures & victories this week? Share in the comments!

Love, Meg D. Gonzalez

    Oh, I just <3d reading this… It's been a long time since I traveled to Germany (I actually used to live in Heidelberg) and Neuschwanstein was one of my favorite places to visit when I was there… so beautiful and… surreal, right? I remember looking at it and thinking "that is too pretty to exist in real life!"

    Thanks so much for the recommendation–I have just requested Gathering Shadows from my local library.

    And congrats on getting the manuscript back–what a major (and exciting) time for you!!!

    Hope you have a lovely weekend, and happy travels 🙂 So glad to have you stop by so I could return the visit here.

      Thank you Charlotte! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Germany is such a great place. We loved the people and the food. It’s been fabulous 🙂 I hope you enjoy Gathering Shadows, if you’d like any other recommendations just let me know! I love giving book recommendations. I’m so excited about the manuscript! Have a wonderful week!
