Look what my cp, Rachel Vincent , sent me to cheer me up. It worked. This is the best thing. Ever!
Okay, I’ll spill about one of my bad pieces of news yesterday–the writing related one.
One of the agents–one I was quite excited about–was looking for something a little different. She was very helpful in her comments– did make me rethink the beginning to my novel, because the rest of it is sooooo very close to what she’s looking for. I am considering reworking that section, but don’t want to yet since one of the others may like it as is.
But, as every submitting writer knows, the agent search can be full of difficult responses. Some hit you harder than others.
So, current submission update is:
3 Agents are a no. (One form letter (Unfortunately, she had my “too wordy” original query), two personal with compliments–one referred me to a popular fantasy agent.)
3 Still have partials. (Two seemed enthusiastic. One has my “too wordy” original. Eek.)
1 new E-query. 🙂
