Another New Year!

You probably have some resolutions, right?

I bet you're probably thinking, "I'm going to send out that manuscript!" Which is awesome, you should do it! Do be careful though when submitting, though, because not all agents or publishers are the same.

Over on SFWA there is a really nifty article listing things to watch out for when it comes to possible scams, and also a list of questionable agencies. Definitely worth a read!

Good luck and may the muses be with you!!

P.S. I also resolve to actually update this blog.... maybe.

Your own worst enemy

It's an interesting thing how, in the end, we are our own worst enemies. Whether you be a writer, painter, singer, dancer, poet, or anything in-between. Actually, it doesn't really matter if you're an academic, an engineer, a student, or a housewife.

We are our worst critics, and the ones who hold ourselves to the highest standards -- often impossible standards.

Lately I have been struggling with a motivation killer: self-doubt.

Would ya look at that

So yesterday I posted about an agent who had requested 50 pages and a full synopsis, and how I was hoping to hear back any day now.... well she emailed me this morning.

She declined to rep the book. Kind of bummed, but all in all it's okay... I will continue on!

Back to WritersNet, Publishes Marketplace, and Agent Query I go...... tra la la!

And sometimes life kicks you in the ass...

So this is an update with more personal that professional things.

First on the professional front -- I got a request from an agent for the first fifty pages of my novel and a full synopsis. So that's good! They take 4-6 weeks for reply, I'm within the 6 week mark... and I am hopeful for a response of some kind soon. Maybe. Please?

Long time no post

So I basically abandoned this thing because I hate all the changes in the blogger interface.... yes, I am petty. I never claimed to be otherwise. But I shall endeavor to suppress my qualms and post more.... because you all have been waiting for that, right? HA HA HA!!

In the meantime, let me use this post as way to pimp some things. Because I can! Yay!
