Sent Off!

Well, I sent my first 3 chapters, a full synopsis (harder to write those 2 pages than the actual book) and a short biography to the company that requested to see more. I guess all I can do is cross my fingers now. And the Sky Full of Stars is now out there on its way back east. It is exciting and frightening all at once. To think some one liked my 1 page query enough to see more is thrilling, but then I think, now they have 50 pages and what if they read it and fall asleep or just can't bear to read more? AHHHHH! They said they have a 90 day respond rate on requested material, so I guess I will just be at my wits end for the next three months! Oh well, I guess that is the life I got into when I decided to write a book. I just hope somewhere out there someone likes my characters as much as I do!

That's so awesome!! I can't wait to hear what happens.

You asked about my Book in a Month challenges -- I do them every three months. You decide what month you want to participate (the next one is in July, then October) and you choose how many words you want to write per day. It should be a goal that stretches you but that isn't impossible. Then you sign up on my blog, and every day, you try to hit that goal. You check in and let me know how you're doing. It's a pretty good incentive, and I find I write better when I have people to report to.

Oh, and I just tagged you on my blog. :)
