The first Friday of every month our Writer's Critique Group meets. This is where we met 5 days ago.
About my pending article: After much thought, I decided to keep some of the publisher's edits...and suggested changes on other edits. She didn't like my title, so I gave her 4 other titles to choose from---and omitted her title suggestion. She ended up going with one of my title suggestions!
Her email back to me:
I've made the changes you suggested. I think this title will work: Off Road Riding with God (Learning to Trust) You may consider this piece on hold for use in (magazine name) sometime after Nov. 2008. A notification letter will be sent when an actual publication date is determined. Send the photos as e-mail attachments for now. I may have you send hard copies at a later date. At this time I'd just like to see what you have available.
I'm so happy that this worked out. Now I have to dig up some pictures!
(I'll let you know what magazine this is at a later date.)
Here we are. My Writer's Critique Group...with about 8 members missing. We never have full attendance...but there's always enough for a good critique! Debby, of Pieces of Me, took this picture. I am on the bottom right. Not a good hair or face day! As you can see we enjoy eating. We especially enjoyed the fresh strawberries and sweet breads!
