Quick writing update:
-The agent who had my full is no longer taking queries and her agency is closing. (Sad for me, but sadder, I think, for her.)
-We sold my old car for more than we were expecting and my husband offered me the money so I could get the first few chapters of Houses (the newly rewritten ones) professionally critiqued. I, of course, was all over that! Should get the feedback in a few weeks.
-I'm about five chapters away from finished The Great Rewrite. When it's done, off it goes again to see if I can interest an agent.
-I miss my new book, my current work-in-progress. But I know that this separation is a good thing. My writing has gotten so much stronger through rewriting Houses, and that will benefit the new book as well.
-This month's great writing lesson appears to be this: Curb your impatience. A not-quite-ready book will get you no farther than a first draft. Take the time to make it perfect.
(I do not like this lesson at all, but I'm reluctantly learning it.)
Have a great week!!
