The End!

Wonderful summer so far. Vacationed in Florida. Loved the white sandy beaches. We don't have those here in Texas. And even though time has flown by I've made progress. I'm so excited to have the edits on my first manuscript complete!! Next step, get ready to pitch the story to an agent at the October conference. I'm hoping to start sending it out before then too. See what kind of feedback I get.

This is a hard step. I'm nervous about what will be said or not said. Form letter or personal note. LOL Rejection is never fun, but part of the process. :)

I've accomplished a lot since January. Now my goals are:

Polish and tweak the two manuscripts I've finished according to the wonderful information I learned in Margie Lawson's Workshops-
Send out query letters to agents and editors -
Finish Young Adult manuscript my daughter is dying to know the ending to, polish and send out query letters.

I want to have all this finished before school lets out for the summer on June 4. That way I can sit back and enjoy the kids, start something new and relax after a year of pushing myself to the edge. Whew!

But it's been a fun ride. : )
