Partial Request!

I missed posting yesterday. You might have noticed that I now try to post three times a week--Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, although sometimes that schedule may alter. 

Unfortunately, I don't have an amazing post to share with you today either. I am a little preoccupied with something else...

Remember how I said I was taking you with me into the query trenches? Well, here's an update:

On Tuesday I sent a query to an agent and received a request for a partial shortly after. I've been busy going through my first fifty pages with a fine toothed comb, searching out those mistakes I might have missed the other two hundred times I've read through/revised it.

I read an interesting quote the other day, but I can't remember where I read it. Basically it said, you know your manuscript is ready to send when you've gone through it and changed things so many times that you're sick of it.

I totally feel that way. If I have to read one more scene between Declan and Giselle, I think I'm going to throw my computer against the wall.

I love the story, but I've read it so many times the words are starting to blur together. *sigh*

So, even though I don't have any scintillating stories or information to share today, I hope you'll stay tuned to upcoming posts. There are some FABULOUS blogfests coming up as well as a Unicorn Bell inspirational stories contest. More info to come....

Have an AMAZING day!!! Here's an awesome smiley face just for you!!

  1. Congratulations on the partial request.
    I know I'm done when I start changing things back to the way they were in the first draft.

    1. Thank you!! Yes! I have found myself doing that too. I realize now that I could probably make changes for the next twenty years, but at some point I have to say, "It's ready." :)


I LOVE reading your comments!! Thanks for taking the time to leave one!
