The research on agents continues as I get ready to send out queries. It has taken me a bit longer than what I would have liked but I don’t want to rush anything. Part of me is nervous and terrified but the other part is excited.
During my research, I discovered that an agent I was previously going to query is now closed for submissions. I’m glad I checked that before sending a query out. I’d like to respect an agent’s wishes.
On another note: writing has been really productive. I’ve gotten a lot of writing for the past week. Unfortunately, I keep jumping from project to project. It just so happens that I suddenly get an interesting scenes in my head that would work perfectly with the story that I mist write it down. I still work on my main current which is Crimson Queen but others have recently gotten attention.
I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or bad thing yet, having my focus split like that but I’ll just have to wait and see.
It’s been one heck of a week – make that two. UofH started classes on the 21st and it’s been hectic at work. Since we are severely under staffed, I work more (yaye) but that also doesn’t leave much time to do anything else.
On the bright side, I have completed my summary for Clan of Ash and will be sending queries out by next Friday.
On the downside however, there’s a hurricane. And I’m in Houston. So, I got to make sure all my books and electronics, and story idea notebooks, and everything else to be somewhere safe. I doubt I’ll have to leave. Let’s hope not. Fingers crossed. And for those also on the coast: stay safe.
Took a vacation. Traveled all day yesterday to get back home. Errands to run today. Camp NaNoWriMo word count = behind. Must catch up.
Camp NaNoWriMo has begun. I am happy to announce that I have written 1, 726 words. To be honest, it was a bit easy today to get the words out. I think it had to do with my preparation and because I knew how I wanted the story to begin.
The word count, however, is for my fantasy side story I decides to write. I still have the 850 words or so to contribute to the collaboration story with my sister but I’m confident I can get it done.
So far, I’m off to a good start.
