So, not much progress lately. But for once, I have a good reason for it!
My son was born on Saturday. Suddenly, little frustrations like waiting for answers to my queries don’t seem that relevant anymore.
I’ll get back to work soon. I just need a week, maybe a month or a year or a lifetime, to gaze upon the most marvelous little being in the world.
(Actually, I probably will get back to querying this weekend or early next week. But don’t be surprised if I don’t!)
It may not seem like it, but I just had a very, very productive month.
Of course, nobody wants to hear about how I turned my entire office into a bedroom for my soon-to-be-born son, but it was pretty high on the list of priorities (as was baby-shopping.)
But still, I got some real work done: specifically, as of two minutes ago, I’m back to sending queries.
I’ll be putting up a query report in the next few weeks, once I’ve had the time to receive some answers. I’ll probably be starting my counts of queries sent/rejected/accepted all over again, since I’m now querying with an entirely revised manuscript, an improved query letter, and a much better synopsis.
We’ll see how it goes.
