In Which I Hodge-Podge

I can't believe we're into week two of December. 2013 went fasssst.

So the Baker's Dozen auction went well for me! (and thanks to everyone who stopped by and commented on my entry. Totally made my day)

I walked away with a full MS request, which I've already fired off. Starting on Wednesday, any other agent who bid or didn't get a chance to bid, can request pages as well and Authoress will forward any info from lurking agents.

Will I get any further requests? I have no idea. I reached my goal just by getting in so anything else is just icing on the cake.

(mmmmm cake).

I also submitted my 15 pages for my MFA workshop. So now I don't have to worry/stress about that anymore, which is good. I have 4 extra books I need to read for the MFA residency before Jan 9th. Luckily the library had all 4 in. Unluckily no one could find the picture book I needed so now I've got to wait for an email for when it appears. (Picture books, man. I can never find them).

And Wednesday we find out who gets picked for Pitch Wars. I'm excited. Not just for myself but to see if anyone I know or am rooting for gets picked too. I'd be excited if I got picked, no doubt, but I'd be perfectly fine if I wasn't.

Otherwise, this week I've got to start tackling some revisions and brainstorming others, which I'm excited about (but also a little scared. Because, let's get serious, I run through all the gamut of feels like all the time.)

And also try and finish up my Xmas shopping.

And that's me in a nutshell for another week. How about you? How are things going? Did you finish buying all the presents you need to buy? Have you been feeling all the feels? And staying warm (I can't express how cold it's been here (actually I can. Like -10.))

I'm so glad you got the full request. It was definitely top notch work.

Best of luck, Sarah. You know I'm rooting for you!

Yay for request! I hope you get even more. And ooh, a bunny! :)

Leandra Wallace said...

Woot on the full! That's fantastic!

Rena said...

Ha! Christmas! Yeah, because I knew I'd be moving in december, I did all of my christmas shopping in November. All the presents were wrapped by thanksgiving. Now they're waiting for a truck to come and haul them away (after I load it, of course!).

Good luck for pitchwars!

I hope you get the agent of your dreams! And then the publishing contract of your dreams! And then the Barry Allen of your dreams!

You should check out my Arrow (Barry Allen) post today. It's full of pleasing gifs.

I've been, like, hella anxious about something for two days now, and I have no idea what for. Very annoying.
