In the zone...

My characters are talking to me in my sleep. I'm making notes on scraps of paper in my purse. My wrist callus is back (I'm one of those lazy typists who rests their wrists. Gasp.). These are all good signs. Call it the muse, Call it inspiration, call it anything you want. The fact of the matter is, I'm in the zone.

An Awesome Rejection

I know the rule. I know the "never submit before it's finished" rule. But I did. I heard a not-to-be-named agent requesting manuscripts that were exactly like mine. So I queried. And I waited and wrote. Waited and wrote. Waited and didn't write for awhile. Then I heard back. It was a rejection, but an awesome one. Agent X stated that she hadn't forgotten and she was sorry it took so long but that she was strongly considering representing me for several weeks but unfortunately a project she was working on was dominating her time.

The letter was LONG and PERSONAL. Both great in the query world.

I don't think anyone has ever been so happy about a rejection letter. And so I'm working on finishing the darn thing and am confident that when the time is right, I'll be able to find representation.

Life fell apart.

...and I took a break. I'm back now and ready to pick up my metaphorical pen.
