In Which Things Slow Down (A Bit)

HerpaDerp!!

I've been meaning to include this link for the last few weeks and I keep forgetting.

But here's the link for my Success Story Interview on QueryTracker.

I always love reading QT Success Stories, because they're a lot like "how I got my agent" blog posts, which we all know are awesome

Last week was the first week I've had in a long time where things slowed down and went a little easier. And it was awesome. I doubt it will last (seriously doubt it, in fact) so I was able to enjoy it even more, since I knew it was probably just a temporary state of being.

I got a bunch of beta and CP reading done and I managed to get in 12 new pages on the WIP.

They were kind of crappy 12 pages, but 12 pages are better than 0 and I will happily take them. I'm just hoping I can keep up the pace over the next few weeks. My next MFA packet is due in early April.

I also went out to meet with some local writer peeps for drinks one night and had lunch on another day with some of my local MFA classmates. Both were a lot of fun! I love hanging out with fellow writers.

Also, going out gave me a reason to wear the new earrings Twin got my for our B-day:


I lurrrrve them

How about you? Have things been crazy busy for you, or are you living at a more sedate pace?

Glad you enjoyed a slow week.
I'm really busy now. So busy that the approaching Challenge has me worried. I'm going to need more clones...

I love those earrings! Tres cool.

Everything is about to get really busy down on the farm. Babies being born and full tilt spring.

Bracing for impact. :)

I think it's so cool you are agented now. I just hope you don't get screwed by a big publisher that signs you, but then doesn't do a hardcover, doesn't do any marketing for you, etc. Harper Teen recently did this to one of my author acquaintances, and I heard about it through the grapevine. It was bullshit.

Oh, those earrings rock! I love them! And YAY for a bit of a slowdown. I wish that would happen to me...

Cute earrings, and yes, 12 pages are better than 0. Revision is the word.

Love the earrings. I just found my muse lazing about and dragged her back to work.

Leandra Wallace said...

Ooh, yes, those earrings are awesome! Does Twin want to shop for me too? ;)

Rena said...

Seriously, those are some of the most amazing earrings.

And slowing down is fantastic. I plan to do that... soon. no really, soonish.
