Some of you know that I have a secret project that I am working on getting published and marketed. Well, I am not about to reveal my project to the world, BUT, I did take an important step to realizing my dream. I completed my project last month and started utilizing it for myself and have had a few requests for copies from people who I have sworn to secrecy and let see it . I have even been asked to come speak to a group of church ladies about my project (in spite of the fact that they really have no details about it) at a church that I do not attend. Anyway, my step that I took tonight was to apply for a copyright! Here is the confirmation I received via email...don't you love the computer age??!
