Haze or Blah

I'm a bad, bad blogger. I had promised I'd post once I finished my edit and sent out my manuscript. Well, that happened over a week ago. The thing is, my mind hasn't accepted that I'm done with the friggin' novel for now. It insists I still need to revise and that I can't admit to the world that it's done (for now, oh always for now).

Maybe this will help: I've finished the damn novel, and it's shipped out to my two readers! And they get to decide my fate - to graduate or not to graduate. Meanwhile, I stare at the pile of books I need to read for my term paper, and keep reminding myself I need to draft up a query letter. *sigh* Must pull mind out of muck.

I was going to rant about the lack of manuscript boxes (at least you can't buy any - you need to scrounge them from places like kinkos), but I was all hot about that last week, and I'm simply too tired now. :p

I did write up a synopsis for the World of Darkness contest. Wish me luck (even though I already found a grammar mistake after I had sent it). Pesimissm has a hold of me concerning this contest. Oh, and now that the slush editor is leaving Realms of Fantasy, and she's only finishing up the current batch, my story will be sitting there a long time (it's supposed to be at the beginning of the next batch - sigh). Such is life. :) RoF will be losing a great slush editor.

Okay, time to read. Too many books and things to critique (what I really want to read is a Stephanie Plum novel, but I have to restrain myself). Happy writing all!
