Due to some personal events beyond my control it's been years since I've been able to focus on my original works. I'm excited to get back in the saddle again! I look forward to seeing what this chapter of my writing career brings. I'm going to see about rewriting my completed manuscript Amanda's Song completely as it's been so long since I completed it. My writing style has changed and I'm thinking that a full-on rewrite versus editting will actually be easier (and a little more fun, because - really - who wants to edit over writing!?).
Wish me luck!
I've been lax in updating this page in a while. Admittedly, my writing has been sporadic the past year but I'm hoping to be back on track beginning this month. My original writing has suffered the past couple of years. Lack of time is part of it. The past five months I've gone through a severe case of writer's block. My plan is once I've punched a hole through the block to start again focusing on my original works.
I have begun submitting query letters to agents. My first was done by email Saturday, April 30, 2005 and a rejection was sent back within hours. From my understanding this agency is paying attention to other endeavors so I should not take it to heart. I officially qualified for and was granted PRO status from Romance Writers of America based on the rejection and the fact my manuscript is complete. I have mailed additional queries to other agents this week and will continue to do so a few at a time until I've made it through the list of agents I have I think might be interested in Amanda's Song. I have officially opened files for my manuscripts so that I can start putting rejections and other tidbits about each one in one place.
