Staying Busy

I’m overdue on my own deadline. This isn’t a usual thing, but I do have my reasons. My heart is beating in rhythm with a silent mantra this week. Will be sharing the why on this at a later date if something turns out. I know, I’m a tease! 🙂

Spent a lot of yesterday working with my critique partner, Rachel Vincent. If you haven’t checked out her young adult series, do! Here’s a link to her Soul Screamers page on her website.

She’s built such a cool world. I critiqued a short story for her yesterday and we ended up on the phone hashing things out. Our working relationship is such a good one. We started working together before we became friends and I think this made a huge impact on the business side of things. We’re honest and we really believe in each other’s work, so we always push each other for our best. 

Speaking of which, I need to get back to the proposal she critiqued for me. I had a few illogical plot points in Unnatural Selection–things I should have seen myself and eventually would have, but sometimes, we’re just too close to our own work. The best thing about Rachel’s critiquing is she catches these things before they go out to my agent. <g>


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.
