Okay, now that I have thoroughly embarrassed myself, I'm moving on from humiliating New Jersey pitures, folks. Not sure about Barbie W, Jen-T, or Patty Cakes, but I can't take any more awful pictures of me. I'll tell you one thing, though, it's gotten my big ole butt to the gym!!!! I have to go to Florida in less than 5 weeks. No way in hell I'm putting on a bathing suit after those pictures unless I lose some serious poundage.
Okay, I am soooooo late on blogging. The past weekend, from Friday on, has been crazy. We are finally done with football, yay, but then lacrosse starts soon. The kids have been sick (no puking like Manic's kids, thank God, but stuffed up and miserable. And now my husband is traveling. A lot!!!
Great for extra writing time, bad for extra mommy duty!!!!
To top it all off, I was sooooo gung ho in getting my stuff out to everyone who requested it, that I didn't wait. And then I got the contest results back from the one I won. The editor loved it more than the agent or published author, but still, they all had a few issues with the plausability of the plot. It made sense to me and it was an easy fix, but now I'm second guessing myself. Should I email the editor who requested it and explain, then send her the new stuff to read instead? Or should I chill out and let her read basically what she read for the contest, except more. She loved the hero, heroine, romance and voice. The only issue she had was plot. Yet she still requested more. So my thinking is, she wants to see if she still likes it with more, and then the plot issues can always be revised. Who knows.
I hate the waiting game. I'm still waiting for one agent to let me know this week. She's discussing the manuscript with her partner and they are supposed to get back to me this week. The other agent called and said she got the full and will read it over the weekend and get back to me this week also. I have my list of questions, but really have no idea what to say if either one calls. The third agent just got it and I haven't heard anything from her yet. My first choices are the first two anyway. And hopefully one of them will like it enough to work with me on any plot issues they may have.
Did I say I hate waiting, yet? God, I hate waiting.
Manic, I think your low motivation is contageous.
I did do several critiques for my CP's and go through my synopsis and first three chapters of book one with my changes, but I need to go through the whole thing and make sure it's consistent. Then I still have to finish the last chapter of book two and then go through that whole thing with some serious revisions. I hate GMC and making everything believable. Ugh!!! I just like funny. I always go for great characters and funny situations. It sucks that I have to actually make the situations believable.
Okay, enough griping. I promise to be funny again tomorrow.
Now go write, people. Or paint, sing, read, draw, etc. Whatever it is you do.
