Every ball these days is a curve ball. You’d think I would learn to prepare for it, but somehow, it always takes me by surprise.
Because of a wonderful offer by an amazing agent intern, my goals almost struck out. But I will report what I have done and then you can all judge me accordingly.
1) Write 20,000 words on RFA
2) Blog 4 times
This will be my third post, so not all-together bad.
3) Read 4 books, one on the writing craft
Still slogging through Book 1 of A Game of Thrones, by George R. R. Martin and On Writing, by Stephen King.
4) Do not think negatively about the queries I sent in February
I haven’t had time to think about them at all.
5) Participate in Pitch Madness: Clue Edition (I’m scared to do this, but the agents are amazing!)
I also revised the first third of my TPR MS to improve my submission chances based on the amazing critique by Agent Intern Anon. of my first 5 chapters. I am working as hard and fast as I can to get it even more perfect.
Thanks so much for all of your #WriteMotivation support! Maybe someday we can have a conference and cater a bakery to make us cookies that look like books and words. And I want the waiters to dress up like dinosaurs.
