Looking out the window right now and man, it’s grey. I need an attitude adjustment, as they say. Time for a change. Freshen up the joint a little bit.
Ahh. That’s better.
Today I pause to reflect on recent personal events, but I shall not linger there. Eyes forward, kk!!! On to the tasks at hand!!!
I’m still not comfortable getting behind the wheel, which means this is a golden opportunity for me: a substantive, relatively unbroken block of time to send out queries for CHERRY and EFFIN’ ALBERT. Speaking of which, I started reading the latter the other day after tweaking the beginning yet again. I’m satisfied so far; in fact, I’m really liking it which is a good thing because I need to find an agent/publisher pronto, you know it? I want to. I really effin’ do. For both novels. I think my CHERRY query is spot-on but I’m still on da fence about my latest attempts for ALBERT, toning down the voice and all that. I have to give it some serious thought, and so I shall.
First, I’ll refresh my cuppa joe but before I haul my sore self off this couch, a parting thought to fellow writers–those of you who find yourselves knee-deep in queries right now, maybe dealing with more than a modicum of frustration and self-doubt:
It’s a new day! I know, I know but It is and anything can happen, so keep those queries coming, keep those dreams alive! Do that and chances are, eventually you’re going to connect with somebody. It’s the law of averages, that’s what Morgan Freeman said! 🙂 Some agent out there has been eagerly awaiting a novel just like yours, will instantly fall in love with it and champion the thing whole-heartedly. And one day, that agent’s going to connect with some fine editor who’s been chomping at the bit to publish a novel just like yours. So get your mindset right, then get your query right and get it out there.
Godspeed, you guys, and thank you for visiting my shiny new blog.
