Why hello there!

What's this? Another new post? It's a miracle!

I know. I know. I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. It's harder than you'd think. Sigh.

Anyway, I finally got to start writing again. I'm on draft 2 of TSA, and boy did I miss it. I broke 12k the other day; I was seriously beginning to wonder if it would ever happen (pushing 13k now - WOO!). I've got some big goals for this one over the break: finish draft 2, edit, send to some readers, edit, send to a couple of agents. We'll see if that happens. But I'm certainly going to try!

On a slightly related (if you think in terms of publishing and books in general I suppose) I had to stop reading for Awesome Agent because of school, which totally sucked by the way (school AND not being able to read for AA). But since she's made of pure awesome (hence the name) she's taking me back, at least for the break. I've already looked at one partial and have another to read for her today. I love this business, and knowing that makes the thought of moving from Arkansas (don't judge me) to New York that much easier. I can't think of anything else I'd rather be doing than bringing my own and others' books into the world, except for playing my instruments, but that's an even harder job to get into. O.O

Books. There are so many that I haven't had a chance to read and so many more that have come out. It's crazy. I'm going to do so much reading over the break, because I have at least 3 books that I have to review that desperately need to get read. Sigh. Sometimes I fail at life.

And on that note, have any of you had any success while I was away? Book deals? Agent signings? Do tell!

(Did I mention how much I missed all of you?)

Glad your writing is clicking now! I'm finishing the first draft of the sequel to my book.

Almost finish with my third round of edits! Gonna send to betas by January, hopefully. Nothing else new - missed your posts! Have fun with AA over break!

(I have nothing else to add since I've already emailed you and am planning to email again shortly.)
