Has It Been That Long?

Oops. Yea, okay, please yell at me for not blogging so long.

Last month I was sick half of the time, so that made me not want to do anything. Just what I need, is for things to pile up even more! Joy.

So, I didn't write much last month. I've written some this month at least. Shepherd is coming along slowly, but surely. I'm redifining my word count meters. The weekly one will still be actual word count (calculated by Word Perfect). The full novel one will be the "editor's calculation" though - page count times 250 (words per page when in Courier New double-spaced). Makes my goal more realistic, as that's the word count that will er, um count in the end.

I've rejoined Critters - yay. Well, I had to. Everyone else abandoned me for critiques. :( I hope to mostly do RFDRs (Requests for Dedicated Readers - i.e. novels) for people. It's what I'm most comfortable with. I plan to send my own RFDR out for Shepherd soon.

I also revised my synopsis and query letter for Mind - unfortunately the list of agents I had from Diane is MIA in my piles of papers (and it's likely in the ones in my study which are hard to get at because of piled up, unboxed Halloween decorations). See why I should clean before I worry about writing - heh?

Okay, I think that's all I have to report for now. Lots of critiquing I need to do right now. :p Happy writing all!


  1. Alexa, have you tried agentquery.com?

    I just sent out 57 queries and got all but two of the agents from agentquery.

    Good luck!

    And sorry for abandoning you. I meant to come back some time after graduation, then it was already mid-February somehow.


  2. I understand about getting busy. :)

    And I haven't done agentquery - I want to find my darn list - would rather query the ones first that Diane recommended. :(
