Several things conspired this last week to exhaust me physically and mentally. Who knew dogsitting could occupy so much of your time? Of course this was on top of Easter preparations. And then there was the little matter of submitting a requested partial to an agent.
Naturally, I couldn’t send it off without another thorough read and polish, but then reality smacked me upside the head. If I receive a rejection on this, I can’t tell myself it is because of a weak query letter or so-so synopsis. Those two have already passed this agent. So, believe me when I say it was a bit stressful to hand that mailer over to the postal clerk. My writing is on the line.
To overcome that frightening revelation, I came home and queried two more agents. Hope for the best; prepare for the worst.
I will spend most of this week’s “writing time” reading. I have the privilege of returning the favor of a beta-read (not for my recent reader) and I look forward to learning as I give. I also hope to finish one of the books I’m halfway through (yeah, really.) And maybe I’ll get caught up on my blog reading … if you don’t all decide to post every day this week.
See ya’ around.
