Report From Baby Land

OK, let's see if I can do this with a baby trying to smash the keyboard. =)

A few weeks ago, I managed to follow up on a query I sent. The agent requested a partial, and then in a couple days after I sent the partial said no thank you. Every time I manage to move up an inch, I end up right back at the beginning. But that's the way the publishing world works. =)

I also sent out a bunch of my stories. A couple have come back with rejections, but some are still out there.

Yes, this means I actually accomplished SOME writing related things. I also managed to read the book Word Work.

Notice I didn't make any excuses for not posting. Anyone who knows me or who has read my last couple rare posts knows I am lost in Baby Land most of the time, so diving right in to my updates is the best for me.

I also plan to be crazy in November, allow the house to become even more disarrayed, ignore my husband at night and on the weekends (making him watch the little one), and try to do NaNoWriMo! Yes, I'm nuts. NaNoWriMo and a baby don't really mix, but no one ever said I needed to be sane to be a writer.

That's what's going on with me right now (among other annoying money things). Now back to Baby Land...seems I have a poopy diaper to change...

Happy writing!


  1. Oh man, babies make everything 10 times harder than it was before you had them. And they're so SMALL! How do they do it?

    Good luck with the stuff you have out. You're doing better than me! I'm a perpetual non-finisher - always chasing after the latest 'Oh, shiny!' item to cross my path... *sighs* Someday...

  2. Hi, Bethanie. =) I have plenty of non-finished projects as well - 2 novels that are over 1/4 through a rough draft, and 1 novel about 1/8 through the rough draft.

    Don't ask about short stories...I HATE revising, so I have a bunch on the 'rough draft done, received a few critiques, need revising' pile.

    One step at a time though - some stuff gets finished at least!
