So obviously, I’ve gone quite awhile without posting. Lack of Internet access coupled with some domestic adjusting to new jobs and things of that sort are my excuse. But really, I just needed a break from constantly updating this blog. 😀
But hopefully, I’m back, at least semi-regularly. And I have a new deadline! If you remember, my last deadline was to have a signed copy ready for my niece by October of 2015. Well, this new deadline is to have the manuscript ready to send out by July. O_O I’m not a nail-biter, but if I were, I would be biting my nails.
Currently, chapters 5-8 are with my critique group, chapters 9 through 15 are with my sister, and the whole of part one is with my critique partner. I have also been going over chapter 1 with a fine-tooth comb in order to submit it to the SCBWI Work-In-Progress grant. Again, a nail-biter.
So, I’m making progress. Now I have to decide—send to agents or to publishers? Is Part One its own book or do I need to go ahead and finish writing Part Two? (more nail biting) I have a lot on my plate!
Hope all is well with you! Happy Writing!
